Las Vegas and the Society of Seven

This is the last week that Lani Misalucha and the Society of Seven with guest star, Martin Nievera will be performing in Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas. My wife and her college buddy wanted to see them before they leave on a tour. I said, "What the heck, let's drive to Vegas, see the show, spend some time feeding the slot machines, sleep in a decent hotel and head back to Orange County the next day." That is exactly what we did!

Photography was not allowed inside the showroom but after the show, the performers usually go outside and sign authographs, have their picture taken with the fans, sell their dvds and what nots. I was told by a friend that in the Philippines, the "stars" do not mingle with the fans, as well as they do here, for fear that things can get out of hand. I do not know this for a fact. However, here, the fans are well-behaved - they line up and wait patiently for their turns, "walang singitan at tulakan." LOL.

great shots. good thing maayos ang autograph signing. If this were in the Philippines, I could only presume that it would be difficult to get a close, clean shot of Martin Nievera and the others, coz of all the people goin' crazy, haha

Daily photographer, I think you're right. The local crowd will be big and probably unruly.

Senor Enrique, they had a great show which was enjoyed immensely by both Pinoys and non-Pinoys in the audience.

Your friend is correct...fans here can get rowdy. You can take a good close up of your favorite artist only if you have a backstage/ dressing-room pass. Autograph signings would sometimes turn into riotous affairs. And instead of an autograph, you'd end up with scratches or worse, a broken bone.

very disciplined fans you have there. wish that all filipino fans here in the Philippines are also like that..
