Fans got a taste of the show proper when Greyson showed up to ‘soundcheck’ his piano, performing his debut-single ‘Waiting Outside The Lines’ to the crowd waiting in line to get in. Knowing that the crowd was eager to hear more, he followed it up with the song ‘Seasons’, a song about moving forward, just as seasons do.

Fans that came from Germany and Guam to Tarlac and Isabela lined up at 4AM.

2. Greyson’s amazing setlist

Talented as he is, what shines through Greyson Chance is his humility towards the people who shower him with praise. This is also reflected in his album ‘Portraits’ as it perfectly represents his young journey in the music scene. As described by Billboard, it is “sleek, synthpop journey through Chance’s previous relationship, exploring themes of heartbreak and loneliness”. The show started with ‘Seasons Nineteen’, a slight vocal variation from the one performed earlier.

The next track, titled ‘Low’, got all of his fans singing in unison. He followed it up with the song ‘More Than Me’, a song that resonated to most, if not all, who heard it. The way Greyson Chance captivates the crowd in a playful, nonchalant manner is what makes him an artist loved by many. In-between songs, he sipped on what appeared to be white wine while entertaining the audience.

Out of 250 albums sold at the event grounds, 100 participants got the chance to greet the singer since the albums had random Meet & Greet cards inside them. Talk about luck!
