In a Twitter post, the television personality shared how stressful it is to enter and exit the venue.

“Went to see Bruno Mars in Philippine Arena and made it to the finale. Happy pa din kasi umabot sa last two songs. Napaka hassle lang talaga ng entry and exit! Has it always been like this?” she wrote.

Her concert experience made her ponder if those who attended Aldub’s Tamang Panahon special episode and benefit concert in the same venue in 2015 also went through these difficulties. “Kumusta ang previous concerts dito? And Tamang Panahon?! Shocks sorry kung ganito din ka-hassle.”

In the replies, Maine shared a photo with her fiancĆ© Arjo Atayde in front of the promotional poster of the upcoming Coldplay concert in the Philippine Arena, saying that while she’s happy to see Bruno Mars’ concert, she sends her best wishes to the attendees of the Coldplay show in 2024.

“Happy na din ako to see this! Sending my best wishes to everyone attending next year! Pass na muna siguro ako. Arrive early then suffer after the show, ganun. Yikes,” the actress expressed.

Many concert-goers related to Maine’s post. Some netizens shared their grievances and own experiences in the replies:

“Took us 3 hours out of parking!”

“It’s always been like that. I remember during Tamang Panahon, we got stuck in traffic for 5 hours pauwi. And that’s just getting into NLEX. Not counting pa yung ride back south.”

“Went to harry styles’ con and bp’s con this year, 1.5 hours bago kami nakalabas ng parking lot then another hour para makalabas ng NLEX.”

“Super hassle šŸ™ Last time, concert was done by 9/10-ish but we got out the arena around 2am na.”
