[Recap] CNBlue Cooks up a Storm with “Blue Moon Live in Manila”
June 15 was definitely a night to remember for Filipino Boices and CNBlue as the boys held their “Blue Moon” concert in Manila at the Araneta Coliseum.
The boys’ one-night concert in Manila almost sold out so the organizers had to add more seats to accommodate everyone.
CNBlue definitely charmed fans with their Filipino greetings. Hats off to them for speaking in English for most of the show. (You could say Jungshin got tired for a little while when he suddenly switched to Korean!) They made fans cheer even louder when they would say Filipino phrases in between their talks like when Junghsin asked if “masaya ba kayo?” (Are you happy?), Yonghwa with his “Sigaw, sigaw na” (Scream now!) and Jonghyuk’s “Salamat” (Thank you.)
The group rocked out to a lot of their hit songs including their latest single, “I’m Sorry,” “Intuition, “In My Head,” and “I’m a Loner.”
Yonghwa openly proclaimed himself as the “Number One Dancer” and showed off his dance skills while performing. He, along with Jungshin, impressed the audience with raps and a short beat box number during the show.
The night was one to remember for leader Yonghwa, as the band members and fans sang him “Happy Birthday” and gave special birthday hats for the boys and fans to wear. Minhyuk riled up the crowd when he said “Today is a special day for one of the members” in Filipino. Yonghwa expressed his surprise and then sang “Happy Birthday” to himself. Fans followed suit and Yonghwa orchestrated them, thanking fans for the love and support.
Yonghwa enjoyed the surprise for him.
It truly was a fun night for Boices and CNBlue. I certainly had a good time singing along with the boys!
After a successful run in Manila, Philippines, CNBlue will continue their “Blue Moon World Tour” tour in Beijing, China on June 29 at the Beijing Capital Gymnasium. Don’t forget to check out the photos from their press conference in Manila in case you missed it!
