Slapshock XIX Anniversary Tour: Such a blast for my summer weekend

Watching them in small live shows was far different from seeing them in huge concerts. Each audience was given more chance to take pictures with the band and having their calendar giveaways signed, and some could even take their opportunity to request for Slapshock members video dedication that would either be for lifetime keeps or for their loved ones who were equally aficionados of the band (while in huge concerts, only those with meet and greet passes have a chance to take pictures and interact with the band and the ones with VIP get to see the performance near the stage). Their performance filled my night with energy just as it would always do. The guest bands – Valley of Chrome, Mr. Bones and the Boneyard Circus and Manila Under Fire – equally nailed it.

Kudos to Slapshock, the guest bands and the team that worked with them. Looking forward to their next gig!
