Backstreet Boys (group) is back - A prelude!

Note: This is a prelude review of the concert. Part of this review is originally posted in my Multiply account.

FINALLY, I will be able to watch this boy band (in 3 months from now) after so many years of listening to their music. When I was in the Philippines, I have a collection of their albums but I dont have the chance to be on their concert tours.

BSB is one of the boy bands that I like most, aside from Michael Learns to Rock, Fra Lippo Lippi, Westlife, and Blue. It is funny because when I started my own workout in my university's fitness suite three weeks ago, the music that always play in my iPod nano is the last album they recorded.

The boy band is set to have a concert on May 12, at the Odyssey Arena, Belfast. My friends were lucky to have good seats 17 rows from the stage for £33 or US$70.

By the way, the band has four boys now from the original 5 members, namely: Howie, Brian, AJ, Nick and Kevin (is out).

This is the link for the band's concert tours dates worldwide. Unluckily, they are not going to Manila but if you have time to travel to Hongkong, Indonesia or even Australia go for it!

The concert venues are mostly concentrated in the US and the European countries, including some part in Asia like Hongkong, Indonesia and Australia. Manila (Philippines) is always deprive of having international artists/performers due to its geographic location, away from the rest of Southeast Asian nations. I believe that Filipinos are concert-goers and I think Backstreet Boys will enjoy their presence compare to some of the European countries.

I was also surprised to find out that they have only one night performance in Belfast (Northern Ireland) and not even visiting Dublin (Republic of Ireland) which I think an excellent venue to have them as well. Well on the brighter side, the ticket price is alright compare to Kylie Minogue concert in June for £55.

Looking forward to enjoying their one-night gig in Belfast! Im also hoping that they will also start on-time and not to wait for almost 2 hours for them to come-out as I experienced during Enrique Iglesias' concert in Nov 2007.

Trivia: Backstreet Boys did not win any Grammys but the band received numerous awards from 1995 to 2007 .

Watch out for my future journals on BSB concert as well as my reviews on their new album released in October 2007.

Closer and Closer Macro Photography: Theme of the Week - Emergence

This link is really a good photo site which offers hands-on info about macro photography - having a closer shot with the subject. Someday, I will be able to apply these techniques when I got my own SLR camera.

The site has also its own flickr account which is accessible for everyone. It contains alot of images from the members. Membership is open to everyone with existing flickr accounts.
