South Korean indie-rock band The Rose embarked on a beautiful journey of music with their fans, Black Roses, last Friday at the Araneta Coliseum as part of their “DAWN TO DUSK” tour. Join us here at The Beat Manila as we reminisce about the most beautiful night with Woosung, Hajoon, Dojoon, and Jaehyeong.
Filled with delightful screams and cheers from their fans, The Rose made their entrance with blinding lights mimicking how the sun was just starting to rise at dawn before dropping the beat for their first song, “You’re Beautiful.”
The band continued to set the mood with their amazing set before hitting the stage with the fan favorite “Red,” which kept the fans’ energy pumping and jumping. Afterward, the band started playing “Back To Me,” transforming the concert into a karaoke session with Filipino fans.
Highlighting each member, bassist Jaehyeong took the spotlight during the heartfelt “I.L.Y.”
Taking fans on a healing path with their music, The Rose also performed “Time” before they graced the stage with the song that they first performed in a small venue filled with only their friends and a few fans as their audience.
Reminiscing about the bittersweet moment, the band’s vocalist, Woosung, shared that after seven years, they’re finally here (in the Philippines doing a tour). The band then proceeds to perform “Sorry” for fans who have been continuously supporting them.
Recognizing Filipino fans for their fervor in singing, Black Roses also enthusiastically sang along to “She's In The Rain” and “Sour.” This time, it was the band's drummer, Hajoon's turn to shine.
Wrapping up the enchanting night of live music, The Rose and Black Roses embraced the moment with “Cosmo” and “Wonder.” Dojoon, the band's guitarist, enthusiastically waved The Rose's flag during the last song before the members took out red roses to distribute to the crowd.
The night ended with everyone in high spirits as The Rose brought everyone together to live in the moment with their music and presence. Black Roses already look forward to the band’s return with new music and great performances.
The Rose’s “DAWN TO DUSK” Tour in Manila was made possible by Ovation Productions.
