Laufey’s Magical night in Manila

Last May 30, 2023 marked Laufey’s first show in Manila and it was definitely a hit! Tickets were immediately sold out just hours after the tickets went for sale on April 14, 2023.

Filinvest Tent Alabang immediately got filled with Laufey’s fans as soon as the gates opened. The crowd went wild as soon as the singer stepped on stage. She started her set with “Fragile”, a song from her album “Everything I Know About Love.”

Laufey sang “Valentine” after and had the audiences swooning over her vocals. The crowd sang along and filled the venue with their voices.

Artist Laufey sang “James” next and followed it with “Dear Soulmate.” She even addressed her Filipino fans as her soulmates! She sang “I Wish You Love” next before asking her twin sister Junia Lin to take a photo of her on stage with the crowd as her background. The mention of Junia alone made the crowd go wild as she’s also loved by the fans.

Laufey sat in front of the grand piano on stage and sang “Let You Break My Heart Again.” This song is one of the crowd favorites. Along with “Valentine”, “Let You Break My Heart Again” is one of the songs by Laufey that went viral and got so much attention online.

She sang “Misty” next, an unreleased song. Laufey sang a snippet of it and quickly cut the song short to tease the crowd. Next song was “Like The Movies.” This was the last song she played on the grand piano.

Laufey sang “Falling Behind” next. She explained that this song is about feeling left behind as everyone around her is in love but her. “Street by Street” came next and she explained that this is a song she wrote to reclaim the city she once used to avoid because of a heartbreak.

She sang “Beautiful Stranger” next and followed it with “Best Friend.” A song she wrote about her best friend, also known as her twin sister.

Laufey sang another unreleased song entitled “Bewitched” before performing her latest release “From The Start” for the very first time. This got the Filipino fans feeling special as this was her first live performance of said song ever.

She bid her farewell after “From The Start” and this got the crowd shouting for more. Laufey returned on stage for two encore performances. She sang one more unreleased song entitled “Promise.” A very heartfelt song about still wanting to go back to a past lover.

The last song she sang was “Magnolia.” She said that this song brought the Laufey community together and that she didn’t expect that this song is what would make the fans together as one.

Laufey also labeled her Manila show to be one of her biggest concerts yet.

This show would not be made possible if not for the countless fans and the very dedicated teams involved just to make this show happen.

HONNE Returns to Manila and Makes Hearts Sing

After four years, HONNE came back to Manila for the fifth time for the Philippine leg of their May 2023 Asia Tour. Thousands of the English synthpop duo’s fans filled the Araneta Coliseum on May 10. The duo, Andy Clutterbuck and James Hatcher, also performed in Davao on May 12 and in Cebu on May 14.

BEKA opened the Manila show with “More Than Friends” and “Don’t Call Me A Friend.” The English singer-songwriter, who has frequently collaborated with HONNE, also told the story behind her song “I’ll Be There” before performing it.

HONNE started their set with “IDGAF About Pain” from “Let’s Just Say the World Ended a Week from Now, What Would You Do?” — their third and latest album. They followed it up with the upbeat “Me & You” and “Free Love,” which got the crowd singing along.

“I can already tell that this is going to be the best night,” Andy told their fans. Providing backing vocals for HONNE’s set, BEKA stole the spotlight with her clear and cool voice when she joined the duo for “Location Unknown.” They followed it up with “Coming Home,” encouraging the crowd to sing along.

In between songs, James said, “I think this is my most favorite gig I have ever played. You guys are the best.”

HONNE continued their set with “306” and “Good Together,” and BEKA shared the stage with them for “Crying Over You.”

A fan named Micah had a sign that said it was their 25th birthday yesterday, so Andy and James asked the crowd to sing the birthday song for them.

The show continued with “Shrink,” and the crowd turned their phones’ lights on for “Heartsong.” BEKA joined HONNE again for “Someone That Loves You” before the duo performed “By My Side,” with Andy dedicating the song to his wife. HONNE also sang “What Would You Do?” and “La La La That’s How It Goes.” Some crowd favorites “Back on Top” and “Warm on a Cold Night” finished the set before their encore.
For the encore, HONNE went back on stage with “No Song Without You.”

“I’m someone who suffers with impostor syndrome. You kind of believe, like, you’re not worthy and you shouldn’t have achieved all these things,” Andy said. “Tonight, for the first time, I feel like we are a proper band.” He also thanked the fans for giving him confidence. James added, “I 100% agree.”

The most requested HONNE song “Day 1” wrapped their Manila set.
While the crowd made their way out of the coliseum, “smile more smile more smile more” played and it ended with the screen showing a message from HONNE to their fans: “Thanks so much for being here today. Take care of each other and get home safely.”

With adorable visuals and colorful lights in the background and fun stories in between dreamy songs, going home from a HONNE show just gives you a warm and happy feeling. It’s no surprise that HONNE has their fans’ support and love since day one.

Daniel Caesar will make third visit to Manila this July 2023

Following the successes of his past two Manila shows: his Wanderland Music & Arts Festival debut in 2018 and his first Philippine headline show in 2019, Canadian R&B artist Daniel Caesar, makes an exciting return to the country.

Since kickstarting his career in 2014 and releasing his debut album in 2017, the singer has been an unstoppable force in the modern R&B scene. Songs like ‘Best Part’, ‘Get You’, and ‘Japanese Denim’ have been a staple in thousands of playlists for long drives, hard nights, and heartaches.

Everything he has created so far has a magic touch—it’s no wonder his music has always garnered widespread critical acclaim.

This certainly still holds true with the latest addition to his discography, NEVER ENOUGH. The third studio album puts an end to the four-year break with Caesar heavily involving himself in the production of almost every track. “This feels like the most personal [release] yet,” he shares.

And everyone listened.

Once it was dropped, it almost felt like the whole world stopped to put it on. ‘Always’ was an early favorite making its rounds all over TikTok. ‘Let Me Go’ was an instant share in group chats and personal stories.

It’s clear that Daniel Caesar has done it again—creating magic on love songs and heartbreak ballads that have a place on everyone’s playlists.

Suddenly, it seemed like four years wasn’t too long of a wait—“If every time you make something, you put your all into it, and people like it, there’ll be someone there to listen when you come back around.”

We’re already counting down the days until we have that one moment of time to be under Caesar’s spell of soul-baring sing-alongs once again.

Trust us, it’s a magical experience.

Bruno Major returning to Manila this August 2023

It’s been a long time coming.

After five years, Bruno Major is returning to the Philippines as part of the Asian leg of his Tour of Planet Earth 2023.

The British singer-songwriter made his Philippine debut at Karpos Live in 2018 and was initially set to come back in 2020 to perform at the then canceled Wanderland Music & Arts Festival. In that same year, he released his sophomore album, To Let A Good Thing Die and by the looks of it, maybe the third album this 2023 as he just released a new single, We Were Never Really Friends.

There’s been a lot of new music yet to be heard live and lucky for us, we’ll be charmed by it all soon.

Bruno Major quickly caught the spotlight when he completed his 12-track debut album, A Song For Every Moon, after releasing a song every full moon, a.k.a. every month. It was a very unconventional and personal project for Major but was a testament to his dedication, talent, creativity, and overall brand as an artist.

The whole astronomical concept to his brand is so cohesive, his album covers have well thought out meanings and stories to tell as well, as very intricately designed by Rob Shuttleworth.

When it comes to Major’s music, you can tell that he’s an old-fashioned romantic. The mixture of R&B, soul and jazz melodies with vulnerable, straight to the point lyrics and soothing vocals runs through his entire catalog. He is the soundtrack of falling in and out of love and finding beauty in spite of it all.

If there’s something we remember about being in a Bruno Major show, it feels exactly like that–a confident charming crooner singing delicately about love with the audience clutching their chests as he pours his soul and emotion on stage.

“The beauty of Major’s music can truly be found in its simplicity,” the L.A. Times says and we couldn’t agree more.

Bruno Major live in Manila is happening on August 15, 2023 at the Samsung Performing Arts Theater in Circuit, Makati.

Orchestra Pit: PHP 5,250+

Karpos Live Presents: Kodaline Live In Manila 2023

The Dublin-based modern rock group’s emotional, heartfelt, and powerful anthems make them no stranger to the Filipino audience.

Kodaline first performed in the country as headliners of Wanderland Music & Arts Festival in 2018 before holding a solo show the following year in 2019.

With the likes of “High Hopes”, “All I Want” and “The One” at the forefront of their emotionally-charged and intimate soundtracks, a Kodaline show brings a special kind of energy rooted from a deep connection between the music and the listener.

If you’ve listened to any of their tracks, it certainly sounds like they wear their heart on their sleeves when writing them. Kodaline has a way of tugging at your heartstrings with their reflective lyricism and endearing musicality, leaving you stunned with their ability to speak to you through their music.

It’s no wonder their live performance feels like a warm embrace—because when the music speaks to you, it’s even better when shared with others.

Their latest release, Our Roots Run Deep, is a testament to that. The live stripped down album highlights that raw connection between the music and the audience. “We’re able to showcase the strength of our songs through this album,” frontman Steve Garrigan says. There are no loud gears, noises, and outside distractions to contend with—just the song at its core and the crowd singing it back more.

It’s a perfect Karpos Live world, where only music + you matters.

Experience it first-hand with Kodaline on September 14, 2023 at The Filinvest Tent, Alabang, Muntinlupa.

Arctic Monkeys Live in Manila: Five Out of Five

Ever since Arctic Monkeys released “Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not” in 2006, the English rock group has established a following for their honest lyrics and distinct yet evolving sound. The quartet finally made their way to the Philippines for their first headline show on March 6 at the Filinvest City Events Grounds as part of their The Car Tour.

After the Wanderland: The Comeback weekend, Filipino music fans went back to the events grounds to see Alex Turner, Jamie Cook, Nick O’Malley, and Matt Helders. The atmosphere was electric as the crowd, which queued for hours outside the venue, made their way near the barricades.

Arctic Monkeys had been on almost everyone’s concert bucket list for more than a decade, and it felt surreal when they were finally on stage.
The night started with “Sculptures of Anything Goes” from their 2022 album “The Car.” The crowd could clearly hear Alex’s unique voice as the band opted for a dark and rich song as their opener. Fans were singing along and swaying with the song’s rhythm. Now, that’s my idea of a good time.

Arctic Monkeys continued their set with well-loved releases “Brianstorm,” “Snap Out of It,” “Crying Lightning,” “Don’t Sit Down ‘Cause I’ve Moved Your Chair, and “The View From the Afternoon.”
The fans sang along to “Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?” from the band’s indelible 2013 release “AM.” They followed it up “Four Out of Five.” Alex then introduced the next song as “Arabella in Manila.”
From their “Humbug” album, the rock group then performed “Pretty Visitors” and “Cornerstone.”

When the next song started, the crowd shouted and sang every word as the band played “Do I Wanna Know?”

From their debut album to their most recent release, Arctic Monkeys sang old and new fan favorites: “Do Me a Favour,” “Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino,” “Teddy Picker,” “From the Ritz to the Rubble,” “I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor,” and “Body Paint.”

They started their encore with “There’d Be a Mirrorball,” with the mirrorball from the stage reflecting the lights and illuminating the crowd. A new arrangement of “505” was next, and the band finished their 21-song set with “R U Mine?” An iconic song to end a much-awaited and phenomenal night. The crowd was treated with a captivating performance that was distinctly Arctic Monkeys.

As Alex said in between songs, “What a night.” And it was. Definitely five stars out of five.

Special thanks to Karpos Multimedia.

ARCTIC MONKEYS finally performing in Manila on March 2023

Karpos Multimedia, the team behind Wanderland Music & Arts Festival, is bringing British rock band, Arctic Monkeys, for their first ever headline show in the Philippines on March 6, 2023 at the Filinvest City Events Grounds.

Arctic Monkeys is one of the most successful British bands to emerge in recent times, being the only band to have won both Best British Group and British Album Of The Year at The Brits three times since their debut in 2006.

And they exponentially prove themselves with every release.

After the undeniable glory of “AM” in 2013 to the vulnerable intimacy of “Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino,” in 2018, the band composed of Alex Turner, Jamie Cook, Nick O’Malley and Matt Helders, returned with “The Car” this 2022—a mysterious adventure of romance and doubt that took us, yet again, on another journey to their ever-evolving sound and experimentation.

That’s what makes Arctic Monkeys one of the best and most loved bands of this generation.

Whether its riff machine anthems or highly sophisticated melodies, Arctic Monkeys orchestrates their music so well that it lures listeners in and grips us with complex lyricism that’s just signature Alex Turner.

Much like their highly anticipated seventh album, the group’s Philippine debut is one that fans have been longing for no matter what album, song, or point in time they discovered them.

We bet that whichever Arctic Monkeys song first got you revved up was automatically a reason to see them live. And without a doubt, it will be a phenomenal experience to catch them on stage.

A staple in our “must-see artists live” is finally coming to life next year. It makes perfect sense—and we can’t wait.

VIP: PHP9,500+
