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.

MCS Roundup: All Time HIGH for All Time Low

All Time Low staged a highly triumphant return to the Manila Concert Scene with their recent MOA Arena Show. The venue was filled with their fans all locked and loaded for a good time – and the show truly did not disappoint as the boys showed everyone a fun time. Pop punk is indeed is alive with these Hustlers!

Kicking off the party was Chicosci. The hometown heroes blasted off with a set of their hits such as “Paris”, “Raspberry Girl”, and “Seven Black Roses” to name a few. The four-piece band went off-the-wall triggering a high-octane performance. “Ang saya!” exclaims front-man Miggy Chavez. And that shot of joy was a wonderful way to warm the stage for All Time Low.

Opening with the trio of “Lost In Stereo”, “Dark Side” and “Sleeping In”, All Time Low proved that they are still the energetic bunch we enjoy. Alex, Jack, Zack and Rian collectively dropped a set-list composed of their biggest hits such as “Weightless” to newer ones like “Monsters”, plus surprises such as the crowd-requested “Therapy” and a cover of The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights”. In between songs, Alex would share how honored they are to be in front of such a massive audience and how coming back to Manila is always a treat. To which, the audience returned with much adulation. Cheering, jumping, singing along to the band, this crowd at MOA Arena matched the high energy of All Time Low.

After an 18-song concert, All Time Low bade farewell in the midst of a confetti rain and loud roars. Taking a bow and waving goodbye…we’re pretty sure we’ll gladly see them again. After all, who doesn’t wanna have fun at an ATL show?
