Before You Exit – Finding their rightful place!
Before You Exit headed to the beautiful pearl of the orient to party and have fun with their Filipino fans at the Samsung Hall at SM Aura. It’s not the boys’ first time here, BYE had their debut Manila performance during Circuit Fest (Music & Skate) last May 25, 2013. The return of the band in Manila is part of their Dangerous Tour in support of its newly-released single of the same title.
The boys from the Theme Park Capital of the World opened the show with their new single and tour title , “Dangerous.” They played a total of eleven songs including “A Little More You”, “Settle for Less”, “Heart Like California”, “Three Perfect Days”, a fan favorite “Soldier”, “End Of The World”, and a cover of John Legend’s “All Of Me”, Rascal Flatts’ version of “Life is a Highway” and “Bless the Broken Road”! And just when everybody thought the show was done and was time for the most anticipated meet and greet after party session, they went back to the stage to perform “I Like That” which made the crowd forget the time and made every moment worthwhile!
Overall, the crowd was very impressed with how well the McDonough brothers managed to entertain them, like getting closer to their screaming fans, taking selfies using their phones and one lucky fan just had a birthday of her life when the terrifically good looking Orange City guys sang a happy birthday song for her! The boys had great stage presence adding up the charisma times three will sum up to an entertaining and awesome night!
The trio also did not forget to humble themselves and thank each and every fan for giving them the chance to perform in the Country once more and that the Filipinos are the best fans they have. With what we witnessed, this band will go far than what they have dreamed of, their positive outlook, buoyant personality and wholesome image will help them conquer whats ahead of them.
