A Look Back: ONE OK ROCK Start Walking the World Tour (2012)

Writing about ONE OK ROCK today because it’s Taka‘s birthday^^

A popular conversation starter among fan groups run along these lines:

“What was the first song you heard from (insert band/ artist/ pop culture trash name here)?”

“Who introduced you to them?”

“What made you start liking them?”

Funny how with ONE OK ROCK, my answer to these three questions is either “I don’t know” or “I don’t remember” or “I’m not really sure.” But hey, by the time they did their Asian tour last 2012, I already liked them enough to fly to Singapore to see them.

It would also be my first time in Singapore and I met my friend there so we could watch the concert together.

ONE OK ROCK’s gig was held in SCAPE Warehouse, located near Orchard Road.  I’d say SCAPE is an edgy mall geared to attract the youth, a rather fitting venue for ONE OK ROCK’s concert.  The venue’s indoor and pretty small compared to the crowds they attract now (I’ll write about their gig here in Manila!!! one of these days), but that just meant their energy reverberated even more!

So, a here’s quick recount of that concert in a few pictures:

Set list:  1. CODA 2. LOST AND FOUND 3. Never Let This Go 4. 皆無 5. Re:make 6. 世間知らずの宇宙飛行士 7. アンサイズニア 8. Mr.現代Speaker 9. Liar 10.Wherever you are 11.C.h.a.o.s.m.y.t.h. 12.Let’s take it someday 13.NO SCARED 14.恋ノアイボウ心ノクピド 15.完全感覚Dreamer Encore: 1.じぶんROCK 2.内秘心書

ONE OK ROCK has certainly come a long way since (Manila included ❤ ❤ ) and it’s great to see them keep their place in the international scene.  Looking forward to more of their gigs both elsewhere and here back home!
