It was a night to remember for Starlights (VIXX fans) who came to see VIXX as they perform in SM MOA Arena for a concert last Saturday, May 2, 2015.
The crowd went crazy as the light goes off and the music starts. The group started it off by a powerful performance of “On and On” then followed by one of their popular songs – “Voodoo Doll”. Starlights can’t help but dance and cheer while their idols performed on stage. The fans did their part as they cheer the fanchants to each songs.
The boys introduced themselves in Tagalog (Filipino language) causing loud cheers from the crowd. The boys mentioned that it is their first time here in the Philippines and that is why they are very excited to perform and see their fans in Manila. Beside their group performances, each member also showcased their individual talents through solo acts. On the first segment for the individual showcase, Ken sang “Rolling in the Deep”, Ravi performed “GHOST” and Hyuk sang “Call You Mine”. After Hyuk’s performance, a VCR called “Let’s Learn About Human Emotions” played and everyone can’t stop laughing and admiring the members as they act on each emotions assigned to them.
As they went back to stage wearing red suits, they performed “Sad Ending”, “Say U Say Me” and “Rock your Body”. After the performance, the boys had “Exercise Game” where members showed their individual skills and compete to get the loudest cheers from fans. The members playfully entertained the crowd as they dance, sing and showed their aegyo (cute) sides.
Their next set is a very heartwarming songs, “Love Letter” and “Someday” in which some fans can’t help but to cry as the group perform. AVCR with VIXX members’ messages to their fans then played which made Starlights cry more.
Leo then entered the stage for his solo act and performed “Words to Say”. It was followed by HongBin’s solo dance with all the effects from the screen as if he is fighting a robot and last is N’s blindfold dance which proved his title as the main dancer of the group.
On their last set, VIXX performed “HYDE”, “Beautiful Killer” and “Eternity”. When the lights were turned off, a VCR was shown with “Last Song” flashing onscreen with a countdown causing the fans to cry in disappointed that it will be the last song. They then appeared onstage to give a powerful performance of their song “Error”.
After the song ended, fans cried for more. A loading heartbeat appeared and then crowd went wild again as they wait for it to load until 100%. Then “Love Equation” played as Ravi entered the stage rapping then other members followed. They did fanservice to fans in each section while singing their songs. The last song they performed was “G.R.8.U” and it ended well with smiles on their faces as they wave, throw kisses and bow onstage.
