SBTown’s Newest Boy Group, PLUUS, to Hold Their Debut Showcase: PLUUS +ime is Now

PLUUS, the most-anticipated boy group set to debut this year, is summarizing all their pre-debut preparations in their first ever 3-in-1 showcase (debut stage, media conference, and fan gathering): PLUUS +ime is Now.

PLUUS is the newest boy group of Mr. Geong Seong Han, popularly known as Tatang Robin, the producer of the biggest boy group in the Philippines, together with Ms. Adie Hong, the South Korean trainer of SBTalent Camp. The six-member boy group is being managed by his now established company, SBTown, and is being co-managed by Ms. Kathleen Dy-Go, under the record label, Universal Records. The partnership of Universal Records and SBTown promises a successful management for the six-member boy group. With the team up of UR Managing Director Ms. Kathleen Dy-Go and Mr. Geong Seong Han, PLUUS’ debut and future plans are positive and certain.

The name of the group came from the combination of the words “PLUS” and “US” which means that PLUUS (pronounced as “plus”) and their fandom are together in this journey from the start and will continue to stick together for a long time and that the boys will be here to ADD good things in their life.

PLUUS is set to officially debut in their showcase, PLUUS +ime is Now. The event will happen this coming March 31st, 3 PM, at Power Mac Center Spotlight, Circuit Makati.

PLUUS will exhibit everything they have trained for as they prepared a triple set of surprises for this event. Everything from their dance skills, vocals, and rap skills — plus charm, they will showcase the power of six boys who are fully prepared to take a bigger stage. This 3-in-1 showcase comes with the addition of exploring the details of their debut album: PLUUS +.Y.M.

Exciting fact: PLUUS played an important part in the process of producing the debut album. They collectively wrote the songs and choreographed the dance for this debut. The music video will also be exclusively released first in the said event ahead of its official release on their YouTube channel. Plus, a bonus performance of a full English R&B song that aims to reach and conquer the global stage. These are all prepared by PLUUS for fans to see and enjoy because as excited as the fans are, all PLUUS members also can’t wait to meet them.

Before debuting, PLUUS went through four years of extensive training and hardships. Admittedly, the boys said that the path to reaching this much was not easy. But with each other by their sides and the solid friendship they have made, their dream seems a lot more reachable for them. And these dreams are just not for themselves; it is also for the people who are with them along the way, and the people who are supporting them.

The boys are excited to be able to perform for fans in this debut showcase, PLUUS +ime is Now. A lot more performances, contents, and activities including their nationwide concert together with their sister group YGIG, are lined up for the group on this much awaited debut. And they plan to continue doing all these on bigger stages and audiences, officially as PLUUS.


The 1975 announce new single ‘Oh Caroline’, taken from their critically acclaimed No. 1 album ‘Being Funny In A Foreign Language’.

The band delivered a stunning performance of ‘Oh Caroline’ on NBC’s Saturday Night Live earlier this month, where they featured as the musical guest alongside host Jenna Ortega and also showcased previous single ‘I’m In Love With You’.

Last month saw the band crowned ‘Best Rock/Alternative Act’ at the 2023 BRIT Awards before announcing their biggest ever headline show at London’s Finsbury Park. Taking place on Sunday 2nd July, the band will be topping an incredible bill featuring Cigarettes After Sex, Jack Antonoff’s Bleachers, The Japanese House, and American Football, with the tickets selling out within two minutes of going on sale.

The band are currently touring their new ‘At Their Very Best’ show, taking in arenas across USA, Canada, UK & Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and Asia over the next twelve months, with over 500k tickets sold to date.

Between the impressive staging, high concept performance art, surprise appearances from friends like Phoebe Bridgers, Jack Antonoff and Taylor Swift, and the excess of viral moments, the tour has been lauded as a band truly in their prime. You can find more information HERE.

Formed in Manchester in 2002, The 1975 have established themselves as one of the defining bands of their generation with their distinctive aesthetic, ardent fanbase and unique sonic approach.

Released last October, the band’s fifth studio album ‘Being Funny In A Foreign Language’ was met with lavish praise, with The FACE labeling it “an album of massive tunes, pristine production and sincere romanticism” and Rolling Stone US vowing the album sees the band “reassert themselves at the forefront of 2020s pop-rock”. It outsold the rest of the Top 5 combined to land the band their fifth Official UK Number 1 album in a row.

RUEL returns to Manila for a solo concert on May 2023

Australian singer-songwriter and pop star Ruel is coming back to Manila for his 4TH WALL World Tour on Friday, May 26, 2023 at the Samsung Hall (SM Aura Premier). Tickets will be on-sale on Tuesday, April 11th starting at 10AM via and SM Tickets outlets nationwide. Presented by Wilbros Live.

At twenty years of age and now on the cusp of releasing his debut album 4TH WALL via RCA (ROW) & Sony Music (Australia), Ruel’s discovery of self-assurance is perfectly timed.

The Sydney-bred singer-songwriter speaks confidently about the release’s authenticity “It’s exactly the music I wanted to write… what I had in my head. It’s me executing my ideas, instead of trying to execute other people’s ideas in my way.”

Executively Produced by long-time collaborator M-Phazes (Khalid, Noah Cyrus, Remi Wolf), 4TH WALL was originally heading down a Pop/R&B lane, however, the pandemic acted as a major personal and professional conduit for Ruel. His matured identity galvanized the decision to forge his own creative directive, and played a vital part in expanding his musical horizons.

Ruel notes “It took way longer than anticipated to get this record right. I spent the last 3 years writing it and wound up with over 100 songs. I rewrote half of them and re- recorded most of them… It’s been the biggest journey making this record…”.

These revelations are strikingly obvious in the 4TH WALL singles that Ruel has treated his audience to, including the dancefloor anthem GROWING UP IS __, dream-like LET THE GRASS GROW, the poignant social and personal observations of YOU AGAINST YOURSELF, and most recently, the beautifully emotive ballad MUST BE NICE.

Since making his debut in 2017 at the age of 14, Ruel has fast become one of his generation’s most influential artists. Sitting with over 2 billion global streams, 1.2 million Instagram followers, and five Platinum records to his name, Ruel is both a seasoned global superstar and a record-breaking musician for tomorrow’s generation.

Add to this stellar collection of bucket list achievements (that most could only dream of), Ruel is also the youngest artist ever to win Breakthrough Artist at the ARIA Awards and the youngest artist to sell out the Sydney Opera House… twice. Not surprisingly, Ruel has caught the attention of some of the industry’s most respected individual’s, including icon Elton John and musical tastemaker Zane Lowe both championing his career developments.

Along with three sold-out world tours, Ruel has shared stages with Khalid, Shawn Mendes, played Tyler, the Creator’s Camp Flog Gnaw festival, and released collaborations with Denzel Curry, JVKE, Omar Apollo and Cosmo’s Midnight.

Now three EPs deep – READY, FREE TIME and BRIGHT LIGHTS, RED EYES, the time is well and truly nigh for 4TH WALL to take flight. With an impressive collection of Platinum and Double Platinum hits including YOUNGER, DAZED & CONFUSED, PAINKILLER, REAL THING and FACE TO FACE, the release of 4TH WALL will further solidify his position as one of Australia’s most successful artists.

It’s safe to say that in just a few short years, Ruel has a biography that is nothing short of astonishing, and the international press tends to agree. Ruel has now graced the high- end pages of editorials such as Nylon, Vogue and GQ, and has received written praise from influential outlets including NME, The Face, famed celebrity and fine art photographer Rankin’s HUNGER TV and Coup De Main.

As his fans hold their collective breath in anticipation for a global tour announcement, Ruel is ready to reignite his position as one of the world’s most exciting artists. “Okay, time to bring home my sound. I can’t wait” – Ruel

Ebe Dancel to stage repeat of “Sa Wakas: 20th Anniversary” Concert

Due to insistent public demand, Filipino singer-songwriter Ebe Dancel stages a repeat of Sa Wakas: 20th Anniversary Celebration, happening on March 31, 2023 (Friday), from 6pm onwards at 123 Block, Mandala Park.

Celebrating the enduring legacy of Sugarfree’s iconic debut album, Sa Wakas The Repeat: 20th Anniversary Celebration will feature a longer, full-length set by Ebe Dancel and drummer Mitch Singson, as well as guest performances and surprises.

Presented by GNN Entertainment Productions and Backspacer Records, in partnership with 123 Block and Balcony Entertainment, the headline show will accommodate more people in the venue as requested by fans who were not able to attend the first one, which sold out in less than a day.

Part of the earnings will be donated to Parokya Ni Edgar guitarist Gab Chee Kee’s hospital and medical expenses. Sa Wakas: official merch is also available via Backspacer Records official website, and will also be sold at the venue.

Sugarfree’s Sa Wakas, which came out in 2003, took confessional songwriting to a new level with anthems that reveal stories and experiences that are too embarrassingly painful to talk about in public. Critically acclaimed when it first came out in the early 2000s, the influential album eventually inspired a huge following, and prompted a fan to write/produce an award-winning rock musical centered on its narrative.

Tickets to Sa Wakas The Repeat: 20th Anniversary Celebration are available for purchase via

Ticket Packages Available:
Regular Admissions (P1,500) – entrance to the event grounds
VIP (P2,200) – entrance to the event grounds, plus meet and greet with Ebe Dancel before the show, and a signed event poster.
VIP + Vinyl Bundle (P3,500) – entrance to the event grounds, a Habangbuhay 10-inch signed silver vinyl, plus meet and greet with Ebe Dancel before the show and a signed event poster.

NIGHTWISH brings Human :||: Nature World Tour at the Skydome next week

PULP Live World will start 2023 with a Heavy Metal explosion as we proudly bring for the first time to the Philippines the iconic Finnish Symphonic Metal band, NIGHTWISH Live in Manila for one night of
majestic Metal madness this March 29, 2023, 8PM at the SM North Edsa Skydome!

Forged in fire at a hidden camp at Lake Pyhäjärvi in Kitee, Tuomas Holopainen, the band’s keyboardist, spawned NIGHTWISH. His vision turned into a massive ensemble that made a phenomenal mark in the
industry with their debut album Angels Fall First reaching the number 31 spot on the Finnish charts, while their single, “The Carpenter” made it to the Top 10.

NIGHTWISH’s historic chronicle continued with more chart-topping albums such as Oceanborn (1998), Wishmaster (2000), and Century Child (2002) to name a few. The EP Over the Hills and Far Away released in 2001 dominated the charts for nearly a year. While their 2004
album, Once, sold more than one million copies. This hour-long masterpiece gave the band’s listeners fresh tunes with magnificent orchestral and choral arrangements, and became their gateway to conquer the United States.

As a pioneer of Symphonic Metal, the band has achieved legendary status today. Since its inception, the band has successfully released nine studio albums selling over 10 million records worldwide. NIGHTWISH is also inaugurated into the Finnish Music Hall of Fame, becoming the 11th
member of the honorary gallery and is considered Finland’s most successful band. They are also one of Europe’s most famed bands of all time, receiving more than 60 gold and platinum awards, having
released six Number 1 albums and thirteen Number 1 singles throughout their career.

Now, NIGHTWISH members, Floor Jansen (Vocals), Tuomas Holopainen (Keyboards), Emppu Vuorinen (Guitars), Troy Donockley (Uileann Pipes), Kai Hahto (Drums), and Jukka Koskinen (Bass Guitar) are geared to wow Manila with their symphonic melodies and multi-dimensional Metal tunes as they play their iconic hits and latest tracks from their newest album, Human :||: Nature. This ninth album proves that they’re not yet done surprising fans with highly-creative releases as this is their first gigantic double release that highlights both Heavy Metal and enchanting orchestral sounds.
