Jason Castro in the Philippines – VIDEO

Like many Idols before him (Kris Allen, Michael Johns and Taylor Hicks to name a few), Jason Castro traveled to the Philippines this week to perform a series of shows in and around Manila.

Tonight, he performs his 4th and final show at at Market! Market! Activity Center, Philippines.

Longtime reader and poster, Purplesmile attended the Thursday night show at Trinoma Activity Center, and Friday’s show at the Glorietta Mall.

Here’s what she had to say about Jason’s performances:

So I finally got to see Jason. Woot! It’s taken a while to get him here but I/we are no longer complaining. He is here and he is as sweet and dorky in person as he seems on TV and the youtubes. I’m also still loving the music.

I have managed to go to the first two of his shows. I almost didn’t go to the first one at Trinoma on Thursday, because work was just killing me. In the end, I decided I needed that break so I went. I’m glad I did. It was a great show and there was a good turnout. (I confess I was afraid the crowd may be small because it’s been so long since he was on AI and there wasn’t a big online presence of Jason fans here to indicate great interest. I’m pleased that I got it wrong.)

Jason came with just one of his band, Stephen Kanicka on the guitar. (His dad and Mandy are with him on this trip, too.) I’m a little disappointed his setlist is too short. On the other hand, since it’s an acoustic show, that may have been a good idea. It’s a solid set, nonetheless (although I wish he had inserted Daydream in there, if only because that’s the one he had me with, heh:P) and the crowd gave him some good love.
