Bruno Mars Concert In Jakarta

Yesterday was 5 April 2011, 1st Bruno Mars concert in Jakarta, promoted his album 'Doowops & Hooligan'. And i was there!! Flying from Jogja to Jakarta, attending my first international concert, and it was for Bruno Mars :)

I said the ticket was so expensive, 600K Rupiah for festival class and 500K Rupiahs for the tribune class. And if it's not worth it, i was like gonna mad! Also why i chose Bruno for my first time, simply because i'm too in love with his music. Let's say he's not handsome, haha, but his smile is soo captivating. Specially when I see 'Just The Way You Are' music video, i'm melting, felt like he sang that song for me. Didn't it crazy?! I first recognized Bruno Mars from his phenomenal duet songs, like Nothin On You and Billionaire. And after that the hits single was out, and i saw the music video, and i just LOVE him so much. And downloaded all of his songs. His voice is soooo beautiful, i saw some of his live performances on youtube and just couldnt wait to watch the real one in front of me.

So here we come! D-day! I was going there with Ivonne and her friends. We got into the spot at around 5.30 pm. And we saw some Bruno's decoration for photo spot. Couldnt miss it! Time to camwhoring! hahaha..

We waited inside the istora for about almost 2 hours. The gate was opened at 6pm and it wasnt too crowded. We could sit but we didnt wanna lose our spot there. We were standing about 10 meters behind the first gate. People inside the first gate were so close to the stage! Oh my God, i was so jealous with them! So lucky! I was standing in the middle of the crowd, yet someone beside me was a lil bit stinky, someone in front of me was so tall like i wanted to hit his head! Hahaha.. And people screamed like crazy! They shouted 'i love you bruno!' bla bla bla.. Like you think he heard it -______-* So noisy! I was standing in a pretty good spot anyway, i could watch Bruno straight in front of me, yet sometimes not. My biggest disappointment was the crowd screamed and sang like a bunch of sucks choirs, specially when it came to the hits song, i couldnt hear Bruno's voice clearly.

Than the concert started at around 8pm, Bruno came out and played the drum and the guitar. He sang 'The Other Side' as the opening song. The crowds sang it along with him. He sang 14 songs that night. 9 songs from Doo-woops & Hooligans album, I was kinda disappointed that he missed Talking To The Moon. I love that song! Rawrrr!! He sang Billie Jean, 2 unrecognized songs (top of the world and money?), plus Billionaire and Nothin On You which was completely different! He sang the rap part slowly, and i didnt notice that it was Nothin On You before he reached the reff part! And when he sang, "Beautiful girl...." the crowd sang along again. Also he said some words that made us screamed! He sang "Indonesian girl...." bla bla bla, and we screamed! Also said "aku cinta kamu".. But the best moment was when he sang it and pointed on one girl at the front row. Lucky bitch! lol. The show was almost over after Just The Way You Are, Bruno and his crew was going off of the stage, and people screamed "WE WANT MORE!!!" So the last song of the night was Runaway Baby, which was very entertaining, cos he showed his dance skill and teased us with his 'carrot'. lol. He definitely knows how to make us scream like crazy! I think it was the perfect encore. And that's it. The end of Bruno's night. :)

I'm wondering how many people was there inside Istora Senayan. I saw the video from youtube and the festival class was so full! And some celebs spotted there were dimas seto (one of the comittee i guess), vj daniel and cathy sharon (which is looking more beautiful in real life). They suddenly stood up behind me! Too bad didn't have the chance to take a picture. And i saw jasmine, nikita willy (dressed up like an old bitch), edric tjandra, jeremy thomas and family, vidi aldiano who was being interviewed, and at the dinner place i saw shireen sungkar and wisnu with vidi gank.

So yeah. My first international concert, Bruno Mars :) I'm not too satisfied because i wasnt standing at the very first row so bruno couldnt sing that song to me (yeah, u wish San), and also no opening band at all. Indie band was there outside the building and sang when the concert was over. So the 600K was spent to watch Mr. Mars only. Thank God he didnt disappoint us. His voice was beautiful and trully awesome in live show! His stage act was also entertaining. I'm still in love with his music. He promised to come back ASAP :D Fyi, Indonesia was the first country of his Asia tour.
