Following their free concert at the Bonifacio High Street Ampitheater on Easter Sunday, American rock band Switchfoot did something really different: They performed on the streets of Tondo, Manila, full-on musical instrument setup, rock-and-roll stance, and all. Their performance is said to be part of an upcoming music video, as they will be launching their 10th album this year.
In a photo posted by Church Simplified on their Facebook page, they described Switchfoot's stint in Tondo, Manila as "too cool." Even with just an impromptu, makeshift setup, smack in the middle of the residents who have gathered around the venue, Switchfoot still gave a performance at par with the one they had at BHS the day before.
Netizens and fans are all praises for Switchfoot’s latest act:
“Best guys in the world! You are indeed part of the Filipino family,” Czari Oliveras commented on the photo post. Earl Napalang loved Switchfoot’s unconventional approach to throwing a mini-concert. “This type of Switchfoot concert is way better! Thanks for being awesome!” Napalang remarked. "And they did it. Whoah! Performing in (sic) busy street of Tondo? Passion it is," Tin Cederia commented, lauding Switchfoot's passion for music.
Do you think there are other foreign bands who can match Switchfoot’s latest move? We’ll see in the coming months.
