Jack White is heading to Manila this November

Founding member of The White Stripes, The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather, JACK WHITE is coming to Manila on November 5, 2022 at the Samsung Hall in SM Aura Premier for his The Supply Chain Issues Tour. Tickets go on-sale to the general public on September 23, 10AM via SMTickets.com and all SM Tickets outlets nationwide.

The 12-time GRAMMY® Award-winner and 36-time nominee, and Third Man Records founder, is set to release his fourth and fifth solo studio albums in 2022. FEAR OF THE DAWN (Third Man Records), featuring his latest single “Taking Me Back,” was released on April 8th, 2022 and ENTERING HEAVEN ALIVE (Third Man Records) followed on July 22, 2022. In addition to writing global anthems such as The White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army” and The Raconteurs’ “Steady, As She Goes,” all three of White’s acclaimed previously released solo albums – 2012’s RIAA gold certified solo debut, BLUNDERBUSS, 2014’s LAZARETTO, and 2018’s BOARDING HOUSE REACH – debuted at #1 on the SoundScan/Billboard 200 along with a variety of other charts.

Among his myriad of international honors, White’s long run of career GRAMMY® awards and nominations saw BLUNDERBUSS earning five nods over two years, including “Album of the Year,” “Best Rock Album,” “Best Rock Song” (for “Freedom At 21”), “Best Rock Performance,” and “Best Music Video” (the latter two honoring the single, “I’m Shakin”). LAZARETTO proved equally popular with GRAMMY® voters, scoring a nomination as “Best Alternative Music Album,” while its title track received the 2015 GRAMMY® Award for “Best Rock Performance” as well an additional nod as “Best Rock Song.” Praised by NME as “wild, mysterious and unlike anything else around…a full, lush sounding thing packed with personality and life,” BOARDING HOUSE REACH proved among White’s most unique works, topping a variety of charts in the US and Canada while drawing applause around the world.

“The spirit of freaky free-play is thrilling and refreshing, a worthy end unto itself,” wrote Rolling Stone. “Like nearly all of White’s work, it manages to feel fresh, original, and still deeply rooted in history.” In 2020, White released The White Stripes Greatest Hits (Third Man Records/Legacy) and, more recently, unveiled jackwhiteartanddesign.com, as well as opened the doors to Third Man Records London – the third Third Man Records location and first internationally. White will be embarking on a worldwide tour in 2022 to support his new albums.

Ben&Ben’s First Major Concert Moved to December 18 at the SMDC Festival Grounds

The highly-anticipated first major concert by award-winning collective Ben&Ben that was postponed last September 3 due to poor weather has been rescheduled for Sunday, December 18 at the SMDC Festival Grounds (in front of the Solaire Resort & Casino Manila). 
 
In a statement released through Ovation Productions, the producer of the concert, Ben&Ben apologized to the fans who were eagerly anticipating the show that was originally supposed to be a send-off for Ben&Ben as they embarked on their first ever North American tour that is slated for this September to October 2022.
 
“We want to extend our gratitude to those who showed and lined up outside CCP Open Grounds last September 3 despite the inclement weather conditions. We also want to thank the rest of the ticket buyers for their patience and understanding,” said the band. 
  
“We are delighted to announce that the Ben&Ben Send-Off Concert will now be held on December 18 at SMDC Festival Grounds.”
 
Ovation Productions and Ben&Ben also released guidelines for those who purchased tickets.
 
Option A: Carry forward your existing tickets as they will be honored. Previously purchased tickets are still valid for the new date with no further action required. 
 
Option B: Request for a full refund. Ticket holders who are unable to make the new date will be allowed a refund from the period of September 12-30, 2022. Emails will be sent to ticket holders notifying them of how to apply for the refund from 12 Sep 2022 onwards.
 
Fans may contact Ovation Hotline numbers at (+63 969 632 7948) or email support@ovation.ph for further inquiries. 
 


The December 18 concert will be helmed by Ben&Ben creative director Karen dela Fuente, who will be working with director Paolo Valenciano as well as Pat Tiu of Bad Student and Big Bulb team. Shakira Villa-Symes will once more serve as lighting director. 
 
Prior to the departure for their North American Tour, Ben&Ben recently released their latest non-album single, “The Ones We Once Loved” which according to the band’s co-vocalist and guitarist Miguel Guico, “is a song about closure and the courage to admit when a love isn’t meant to be.”
 
The collective also did a video collaboration with Indonesian singer-songwriter Pamungkas for a re-imagination of Ben&Ben’s “Paninindigan Kita” into an English song, “Stand By You” last August. 
 
Ben&Ben is made up of twin brothers Miguel and Paolo Guico on acoustic guitars and vocals, Poch Barretto on guitar, Keifer Cabugao on violin, Andrew de Pano and Toni Muñoz on percussion, Pat Lasaten on keyboards, Agnes Reroma on bass, and Jam Villanueva on drums.
 
The nine-piece collective has endeared itself to their legion of fans for their heartfelt songs, solid musicianship and their electric live performances, and their dedicated fan engagement. Their repertoire of songs sings of love, peace, friendship, and positivity.
 
Ovation Productions’ Ben&Ben Send-Off Concert is sponsored by Angkas and Smart in cooperation with Pru-Life UK and TapGo TV as its major media partner.
