Michael Johns at Glorietta Mall in The Philippines 11-19-08!

Date November 19, 2008

We’re busy getting all the media ready to post but if you went to this show please drop us a comment and tell us all about it. You can also join the discussion on our forums. More to come in this post so stay tuned!

UPDATE II! I’ve added more videos in the extended entry. Sorry that this post is all over the place but all of these videos are just fabulous. I want to post them all!

UPDATE! MJ changed up his set list a little and performed a very bluesy and soulful version of Prince’s “Purple Rain”. Yes, I said PURPLE RAIN.

Well, it looks like Purple Rain got deleted but, of course, one of our awesome members, Maja, saved it for us. Check out the Glorietta show thread in the forums for more details!

He also added “Bohemian Rhapsody” and so far only one small clip has surfaced. If a longer one turns up I will add it asap along with the other performances.

    I just saw Michael Johns earlier tonight (well, last night, actually) live in Glorietta here in the Philippines, and he was awesome! His set included two original songs, and PURPLE RAIN! He was a total star onstage, and he worked the crowd like a seasoned pro. It was awesome. I brought along a friend who isn’t really an Idol fan, and she LOVED the concert!

    I filmed all of the songs he performed in the concert, and I’m starting to upload them bit by bit. The first one I’ve got up is his original song, Feelin’ Alright. He mentioned that it may or may not be the first song off his new album, which he says is coming out sometime in March. Enjoy!

    yeahhh he ROCKED GLORIETTA!!

    He only sang that part of Bohemian Rhapsody. There’s no longer version because it was only requested by the audience, it’s not really included in the set list.

    I am so excited for our Mikey…….DOING concert performances!!!
    I can’t seem to get Purple Rain to run, however – can you check on that since everyone is raving about it! Yeah! Go Mikey!!! Also, I am just so thrilled by how it sounds like he is being received so well. He deserves nothing less. LOVE YOU, MIKEY!!!

  13. nashty said at November 19th, 2008, 3:44 pm: ()

    He’s so great! He really rocks big time! Hope to see him in a full-blown concert soon. I bet that would be 10 times more awesome than this mall tour. His performance last night was just like one of his Idol performances. Well, maybe even better. But gosh, he’s so great pulling off all those songs. I didn’t know that he’ll sing around 10 songs. I thought he’ll just sing around 5 songs. And way to go MJ! The Queen songs medley was just to die for!!!!!

    Looks like both version of this performance were removed from Youtube. Someone was able to get the audio of it, though. Check out the forums!

    Darn!! I missed Purple Rain! Loving all these vids! Michael, you are THE BEST EVAH!!!

    Hi! I’m not a part of this community but I just thought that other fans might want to see this. Michael is the most amazing person ever. He just tries and accommodates all his fans in the best way possible. I was outside his hotel, hoping to catch a glimpse of him, and I did! I wanted to see if I could get a picture with him but his villainous bodyguard distanced me away from him. I then asked MJ himself if I could just get a quick picture and he promptly turns to his bodyguard and says “I’m gonna go have a picture with her”. He poses next to me, gives me a hug and goes on his way. He’s the nicest person ever. Always wanting to please his fans. The video is right here, and the blog entry that accompanies it

    ugh…I can’t believe MJ sung Daughter and Come Together at his Trinoma show and not in Glorietta!

  19. Gracie said at November 19th, 2008, 9:25 pm: ()

    He sang come together in glorietta. It just wasn’t his finale. It was the third song I think 🙂

  20. Vernae said at November 19th, 2008, 9:42 pm: ()

    Purple Rain.

    Best 6 minutes and 12 seconds of my life.

    Wait, I watched it like 4 times so…………THUD!

  21. Vernae said at November 19th, 2008, 9:44 pm: ()

    Ya know, I still think you’re holding back Michael. You know you want to pull a Chris Martin on stage, and we want you to as well so just do it! Get down wit your bad self!

    I love this song!

  23. cheche3d said at November 20th, 2008, 12:03 am: ()

    Sorry, I didn’t include the song on my earlier post. hehe. but anyway, it’s MJ performing Fire in the glorietta show last night. The video’s a bit shaky though, but the audio is good.

  24. Yuuram said at November 20th, 2008, 5:03 am: ()

    It was a great night! I can’t believe he sang a lot of songs that I actually listen to… songs from Greenday, Coldplay, Stone Temple Pilots etc…. I was the only one in the area where I was who sang along to the songs and at the same time was banging my head to the beat and flailing my arms like a crazy fanatic! I was really, really enjoying myself and not being “KJ” like some of the people there!

  25. Allison / Java said at November 20th, 2008, 8:30 am: ()

    Gracie, I love your video! Thank you for sharing it. MJ certainly knows how to treat his fans. He is the sweetest man.

    I wonder if he’ll play mariah carey’s vision of love. That would be interesting. 🙂

    Saw him last night at Alabang Town Center… Was happy that he sang “It’s All Wrong, but it’s all right” that was my favorite. Yellow was freakin cool too.

  31. cheche3d said at November 20th, 2008, 9:06 pm: ()

    OMG he sang It’s All Wrong But It’s Alright? is *dead* Why didn’t he sing that it Glorietta? hmp! anyway, here’s my Dont You Forget About me video in Glorietta I hope you like it XD

    Thanks Allison/Java and goldhilites!

    I guess MJ knows that 18 seconds of his time can make someone’s day. I keep replaying my video over and over.
