Thousands of screaming fans turned out to see sensational heartthrobs David Cook and David Archuleta perform a one-night only concert at the Mall of Asia. Tickets were mostly sold out and the few that were left were too expensive, but I suppose it was worth it to see their favorite Idols in the flesh. Days before the concert, David Cook and David Archuleta made several media stops to really get to know the Philippines – they guested in noontime show Eat Bulaga as well as several radio shows. Apparently, David Archuleta tried green mangoes and wanted to try balut (duck embryo), but his manager didn’t let him!
As for the concert itself, it was the time of everyone’s life. A fan reports:
When Archie sang his first song, David Cook was watching him backstage. But for me, the sweetest part of the show was when David Cook called Archie to come out. Archie joined him in singing the last part of “A Daily Anthem” and the crowd went wild. David Cook gave Archie a big hug. THAT WAS SOOO SWEEET! They really are the best of friends.
