“Terbaik dan terindah” (”the best and the most beautiful”). That was the title of the very big concert presented by global TV in celebrating global TV’s birthday (hut global tv). It was held in the senayan olympic pool on october 29, 2008. The concert began on 8:00 PM and was aired on TV at the same time.
I and my friends got the opportunity to see this concert live in senayan olympic pool. When we first entered the area of the concert, we were so astonished to see the view in front of us. There was a very big and beautiful pirate ship floating on the blue ocean. It was the concert stage. They make the ocean by combining two big pools. The height of the ship was about 65 meter and the width was about 25 meter. The light made the view more beautiful. “Wow! Amazing!”, we were too astonished to speak.
The concert was so spectacular that we didn’t want to move from our seat to go anywhere, even to go to the bathroom. It was so full of surprise. Each time before the next singer’s performance, we were so excited wondering what surprise would come next. Sometimes the singers sang on the upper deck, other time on the under deck, and another time on the bridge. There was a singer who sang on the iceberg moving on the ocean. There was also a singer that jumped into the ocean as soon as he finished the singing. In his next performance he was flying in the air while he was singing. There was one singer who had a great influence on the audience that almost all of the audience stood up to dance and sing along with him.
Unfortunately I and my friends had to go home at 11:00 PM because our driver had to go to the office very early in the morning. But as soon as I got home, I continued to watch the concert on TV. It was not the same seeing it live or seeing it on TV. It felt much better seeing it live than on TV. The sound, the ambience, the feeling, and other things were far much better when you saw it live than on TV. When you saw it on TV, you couldn’t have the same excited feeling that you got from seeing it it live.
The concert was ended by amazing fireworks show.
