Journey Down Memory Lane with Vertical Horizon
In the 90s, Vertical Horizon’s songs Best I Ever Had (Grey Sky Morning), You’re A God and Everything You Want were worldwide hits on radio, these singles put them in superstardom.
An alternative band from the US, Vertical Horizon made their third stop in Manila. Being responsible for their infectious and radio-friendly 90’s track such as You’re a God, Everything You Want and Best I Ever Had, we were transported back to the ‘90s alternative rock music scene. Newport isn’t a large venue which makes it a great way to see them on a personal level. The sound was so balance and there’s no distortion around the room, with so much anticipation of the fans, the band hit the stage with Instamatic. Finding Me was the next song they perfomed, followed by their hit I’m Still Here. Matt Scannell sounded the same as he did back in the late ‘90s as they played We Are and Forever.
Seeing them live on stage was definitely worth it. The feeling of nostalgia running through our veins that night was unexplainable. It’s no surprise to all the fans that Matt is a good story teller. His stories about his life in New York City “when I couldn’t afford to live in New York City.” He talked about his love/hate relationship and even tried to speak in tagalong, something like this “Masaya kami andito kami sa inyo” added personal impact to the show. I totally enjoyed this moment about how their songs came to life.
Hands down to Vertical Horizon for another performance of a lifetime in Manila, it was amazing beyond all words. With that amazing vocal and interaction, it was no wonder the night was simply amazing. Other than sounding great on stage, Matt Scannell was a superb entertainer for the night. He talked well with the audience and it felt really intimate.
This show proves that ‘90s band like Vertical Horizon can stay for a long and can still can rock the stage. No doubt that the crowd enjoyed themselves well and was singing along to every song they played that night.
All in all, Vertical Horizon started the night perfectly and ended the same with Best I Ever Had (Grey Sky Morning), Everything You Want and an encore of You’re God. Until this era, they can stand proud, continue sharing good music and so are their fans.
