Sam Milby Nervous About His Rockoustic Heartthrob Concert

Barely a month before his first major solo concert, Sam Milby admits that he is excited and nervous at the same time.

The 24-year-old singer-actor blamed his fear of performing solo in front of the public for feeling "extremely nervous" about his The Rockoustic Heartthrob concert on October 25 at the Aliw Theater in Pasay City.

"Kasi ako 'yong type na may stage fright," Sam told the press in an interview during the launching og Star Magic's 2009 Catalogue yesterday, September 28, at the lobby of EDSA Shangri-La Hotel in Mandaluyong City.

Sam added that he's not used to having a performing solo on stage. In fact, his past major concerts were with fellow "heartthrob" Piolo Pascual.

"Nasanay na ako, mas kumportable ako kung may kasama ako sa stage. Pero ano, siyempre ito 'yong first major solo concert ko so... Malaki 'yong venue, maraming tao, 'tapos ako lang 'yong sa stage at ang daming mga kanta."

Despite this, Sam still tries not to feel uneasy by thinking about the songs that he will be performing during the concert.

"Excited naman ako kasi maganda 'yong line-up ng songs, so nag-aaral ako. May mga rock songs, mga songs na galing childhood ko, parang ganyan. May mga acoustic, may mga rock."

So, has Sam started rehearsing for the big concert?

"Wala pa!" exclaimed Sam. "Wala pa nga, e, kasi wala pa akong time kasi 'yong Dyosa, at saka tinapos ko na 'yong indie film ko na Cul de Sac. Sobrang busy ako sa indie film at saka Dyosa at saka may iba-ibang raket din."

Sam knows the he only has less than three weeks to prepare for his first solo concert. This may be the reason he blurted out during the interview, "Sana mag-start na 'yong rehearsals kasi kailangan ko ng maraming-maraming rehearsal."

Sam also admitted that he never imagined himself performing in such concert event when he was still starting out in show business.

"Feeling ko hindi ko kaya. Feeling ko, hindi pa ako handa," said Sam. "Pero ngayon, I need to get used to it kasi stage fright talaga ako. So, kailangan kong masanay na nasa harap ako ng tao."
