I’m not against SM Town Philippines. Truth is, it could be one of the best things that could ever dawn upon us. Imagine seeing all the artists of SM Entertainment passing through our airport exits, staying in our luxurious hotels, shopping on our local malls, performing live before our very eyes – breathing the same air we breathe, walking on the same land we walk on. None could ever be more exciting than that.
But come to think of it, it’s not yet the right time for that.
Unless it comes from reputable concert producers or from SM Entertainment (or the artists themselves), please do not believe the rumor that there will be a SM Town concert here.
Okay. People may argue that this post is selfish because SS3 Manila has just been concluded here, but that’s actually my point. Judging it all from what happened on SS3 Manila, I don’t think having SM Town here – this early – is actually a good idea.
Let’s put it in Tagalog: Yung sa SS3, ang tagal ng ibinigay na palugit sa fans para makapag-ipon, ang daming naging problema dahil sa laki ng presyo ng tickets eh. Ang daming nagreklamo na ang mahal masyado, tapos nagpepetisyon pa tayo ng SM Town. Hindi naman sa sinasabi kong ELF lang ang bubuhay sa SM Town kasi alam kong mas marami sa Pilipinas ang Sones, Shawols at Cassies (at Traxians). Kaya lang, kumbaga sa ginagawang bahay, malambot pa yung semento natin para tuntungan.
I’m not bursting bubbles. I’m merely stating a fact. I would love to have SM Town here. I seriously would love to have them around. But with the set up we have here, believe me: it’s not yet the right time.
