It’s a sign of the times—I won tickets to watch Harry Styles in concert tonight at SM Mall of Asia Arena, but I know my teenage girl cousins will enjoy the show better, so I gifted them the tickets for their birthdays. Seeing their big smiles and hearing their happy squeals were, for me, better than witnessing the British pop-rock star perform live in the Philippines for the first time after One Direction’s breakup.
Harry Styles: Live on Tour is the singer’s first solo tour after his stint with One Direction. The tour kicked off last September 2017, followed by shows all over the world. In the Philippines, Globe held an exclusive pre-sale registration last June, where all ticket reservation codes sold out in just 52 seconds.
It’s been a long time coming, but the concert is finally happening tonight! Needless to say, there will be a crazy crowd of screaming fangirls out there tonight, so I thought it best to equip my cousins—and everyone watching the concert—with these handy tips to make the most out of their #GlobeHarryStyles experience:
1. Make sure you’ve already claimed your tickets by now.
Avoid the hassle of lining up tonight just for tickets when you’ve already bought them ahead. Redeem your physical concert tickets by presenting your claim vouchers and a valid ID at SM Tickets outlets. Claim vouchers will not be accepted for entry on concert day. My cousins already claimed theirs several weeks ago.
2. Take note of your ticket section’s age restrictions
To maintain an orderly fashion during the event, age limits have been set for certain sections. The Platinum standing sections are open to concertgoers who are 15 and above, but 15-17-year-old minors must be accompanied by a ticket-bearing guardian. On the other hand, the seated sections are open to all, but concertgoers who are 14 and below must also be with a ticket-bearing guardian. Unaccompanied minors aged 17 and below need to present a waiver signed by a parent or guardian and a valid ID.
3. Make the most of your smartphone camera
Taking photos and videos is a must for the concert, but keep in mind that only mobile phones will be allowed. Professional video and audio recording equipment, tablets, and Go Pro cameras are strictly prohibited. Get creative with your smartphone camera. Feel free to post on social media using the hashtags #GlobeHarryStyles and #ForTheLoveOf.
4. Participate in booth activities
Watch for two Globe Prepaid booths at the MOA Arena lobby and second floor! To join the activities, simply register to GoSURF 50. Take fan quizzes, make your own album cover, and even get a hair makeover! Those who complete all activities can get a chance to win exclusive Harry Styles merchandise.
5. Stay fully charged the whole night
Don’t miss out on any magical moment during the concert. Make sure your devices are juiced up throughout the night by bringing a powerbank. Keep your phone at 100% battery power so you can take photos, post on social media, and stay connected to family and friends worry-free.
