Concert Round-up: Posty’s Manila Party

It was Monday, and after a long day in the city, Manila witnessed one helluva party — courtesy of Spotify’s 20th most streamed artist in the world, Post Malone. The Mall of Asia Arena, home of world-class acts, was packed for Posty’s Manila debut show. Initially, there were talks back in 2019 of bringing Post Malone in Manila, but it didn’t happen. Thanks to Live Nation Philippines, Filipino fans finally experienced a Post Malone party.

The show started on time, and Posty was backed with his talented band, including a violinist. Post Malone opened his Manila party with “Better Now,” and there was a monstrous cheers from the fans when Posty took the stage. “Hi, my name is Austin Richard. Thank you for coming y’all tonight,” he greeted the crowd and welcomed his Filipino fans to one big party.

Wearing a Micah Parsons jersey, Post Malone, notably a huge fan of NFL’s Dallas Cowboys, didn’t disappoint his Filipino fans with his impressive hits, dancing skills and explosive performance. Explosive since the show was filled with fire effects and pyrotechnics.

Posty did a partial cover of Fleetwood Mac’s hit “Dreams.” “Hollywood Dreams” came from his 2016 mixtape, “August 26th.” During his “Jonestown (Interlude)” performance, the stage lit up with flame effects.
Post Malone chose a lucky fan to perform the guitar part of “Stay” onstage, making everyone in the crowd feel inspired. He also performed his other hits, such as “Psycho,” “I Like You (A Happier Song),” “rockstar,” “Overdrive,” “Circles” and “Congratulations,” as the energy on the dancefloor never stopped.

In between songs, Posty said: “You know, you look around the world these days, and it feels like, a lot of time, there’s not enough love. And I wanted to say that I love each and every single one of y’all so very fucking much, ladies and gentlemen.

I know there may be people out there who may not feel love, and you know, someone just needs a hug. Never be fucking scared to just reach out. Give someone a hug and say, ‘Hey, I fucking love you so much.’

Post Malone showed his appreciation to the crowd, “I’ve been here for a day now, and everyone I’ve met is so fucking kind. Everyone is so sweet, so I appreciate you so much. Thank you so much.

The show ended with crowd favorites “Sunflower” and “Chemical,” with plenty of on-stage fireworks.

The Manila show of the If Y’all Weren’t Here, I’d Be Crying Tour ran for almost two hours. It was fast-paced, but there was a smooth transition in every song. Post Malone gave a hundred percent with his performance for his Filipino fans, and he promised to come back again soon. I think, Post Malone is a must-see artist and his show is definitely a contender as one of the best Manila concerts of 2023.

-Better Now
-Zack and Codeine
-Hollywood Dreams
-I Like You
-Jonestown Interlude

Lauv-ly Evening with Ari: Lauv in Manila 2023

After two weeks of basketball madness, Filipino Lauvers stormed the Mall of Asia Arena for Lauv’s debut set at the venue. American singer-songwriter Lauv returned to Manila as part of his The Between Albums Tour. The show was produced by Live Nation Philippines. The show was successful, full house, up to the rafters, and I think this might be his biggest Manila show yet in terms of crowd attendance.

People rushed in to get inside at the venue as Alexander 23 warmed the exciting MOA Arena crowd. Alexander23 serenaded the fans with his smooth voice as he played his singles, such as “Cry Over Boys,” “The Hardest Part,” for the first time in Manila. During his performance of “IDK You Yet,” Lauv even appeared on the LED screen and also joined Alexander 23 on stage.

Lauv’s set opened with a laser light show on stage, just like an opening from a typical movie, followed by his first song, “Love You Like That.” The show was filled with his deep cut tracks from his compilation album “I Met You When I Was 18,” such as “Paris in the Rain,” “Paranoid,” and “Chasing Fire.” He also did a medley of “Enemies/Kids Are Born Stars” during the show.

A high-energy party occurred as lots of laser lights were on stage during his performance of “Summer Nights” and “Molly in Mexico.”

During the second half of the show, Lauv wore a customized Barong Tagalog. There was a quiet moment, and suddenly a fan shouted, “I love you.” Lauv said he remembers Tiktok viral videos of Harry Styles noticing a Filipino fan, who stood out because she talked to him loudly during his 2023 Asia Tour. On the B-stage, he performed “Sad Forever” — a song which isn’t included in his tour setlist. Notably, the music video of “Sad Forever” was shot during his 2019 Manila show. Ari also played “Breathe,” “Steal the Show,” and “Modern Loneliness” on the B-stage.

The crowd popped when Lauv performed “Mean It” (a shout-out to LANY, who collaborated with Ari on the song). There were loud cheers as well at the beginning of “I’m So Tired.”

“Thank you. You are all amazing. This is my favorite show on the tour,” Ari said during the show. He promised to come back and perform again in Manila. “Never Not” and “I Like Me Better” were the songs that closed the show.

Didn’t we have fun? We had fun! With his charm and great music, Lauv won the hearts of his Filipino Lauvers. He brought us to his musical journey — from his compilation album, his “How I’m Feeling” era, up to his 2022 release “All 4 Nothing” — and we want more of him. This has been one of his best performances in Manila yet, and we can’t wait to see him again on stage someday.

-Love You Like That
-Paris in the Rain
-I’m So Tired (snippet)
-Chasing Fire
-Enemies/Kids Are Born Stars
-Drugs & the Internet

TOMORROW X TOGETHER excites fans for Asia Tour with “Do It Like That,” a new collaborative single with Jonas Brothers

This collaboration we didn’t know we needed, but it’s finally happening! As the internet surprised fans with the announcement of the release of summer dance anthem “Do It Like That,” the new collaborative digital single that unites global Gen Z, TOMORROW X TOGETHER with GRAMMY® Award-nominated powerhouse trio Jonas Brothers is officially out with “Do It Like That” that will give you all the fun dance moves and catchy lyrics that you won’t stop grooving to.

As mentioned during TOMORROW X TOGETHER’s recent interview, the group felt ecstatic and even hinted about performing the new single, “Do It Like That,” live on stage during their tour in Asia in August, including their Philippine concert on August 13, 2023, at the Philippine Arena (in Bulacan) presented by global concert promoter, Live Nation Philippines. The members also shared that more exciting surprises for their fans are coming up for the rest of the year, including their return as headliners at the American festival Lollapalooza in Chicago in August, 2023.

Produced by mega-hit producer Ryan Tedder, “Do It Like That” is a collaboration between the two iconic bands.

TOMORROW X TOGETHER are regarded as global Gen Z icons for their musical narratives, which focus on the everyday experiences and emotions of youth across the globe. TOMORROW X TOGETHER became the first K-pop group to perform at Lollapalooza in 2022, and they will be returning as a headliner in August, 2023—making them the first K-pop group ever to headline the annual American festival in Chicago.

Korean boy group P1Harmony visits the PH in September

The six-member Korean boy group P1Harmony, composed of KEEHO, THEO, JIUNG, INTAK, SOUL, and JONGSEOB, has just confirmed their first-ever visit to the Philippines and will be performing at the New Frontier Theater on September 9, 2023. Ticketing details have been announced by the global concert promoter, Live Nation Philippines, and will be available at TicketNet outlets and via www.ticketnet.com.ph.

PH1Harmony entered the mainstream music market with its breakout EP “DISHARMONY: STAND OUT” and its title track ‘SIREN’ in October 2020, with all five tracks written or co-written by the band.

P1Harmony historically debuted with the release of the box-office production film ‘P1H: A New World Begins’, co-starring some of the biggest names in Korean Entertainment. ‘P1H: A New World Begins’ stars P1Harmony members and tells the story of P1Harmony’s newly created K-POP cinematic universe of boys from different dimensions who gather together to find the ‘Star of Hope.’ A 20-minute highlight version of the movie was premiered through Amazon Music’s Twitch channel, followed by an exclusive interview with well-known KPOP journalist Jeff Benjamin.

P1Harmony completed their first-ever concert tour from March to May 2022, in the US, with all 11 tour dates selling out in less than 30 minutes, and the band made another surprise by collaborating with R&B singer, songwriter, and producer Pink Sweat$ with the song “Gotta Get Back,” released in May 2022.

P1Harmony released their 5th mini album, “HARMONY: SET IN,” and had their second US tour from January to February 2023 with 12 stops, including Nashville, in which they are the first K-POP band to perform at the historic Grand Ole Opry. During their album promotion and second US tour, P1Harmony appeared on popular US TV programs such as “The Kelly Clarkson Show,” “The Great Day Houston,” and “GMA3.”

P1Harmony also had TikTok Live on NBC’s ‘Today Show’ and reached around 12k viewers, which makes the ‘top viewer counts’ that Today Show ever had. P1Harmony won the “Emerging Artist Award” from the 2022 HANTEO MUSIC AWARD, and their latest single ‘Back Down’ was listed in MTV’s ‘Bop Shop’ and Sweety High’s ‘The Best 6 K-Pop Tracks,’ proving P1Harmony worldwide influence as a remarkable group.

Expanding their connection and spectrum in the industry, P1Harmony had New Hope Club, a famous British band, as their opening guest in NY show during the tour and will be joining the opening stage of New Hope Club in the Seoul concert.

To this date, P1Harmony has also reached Billboard’s #1 Emerging Artists (RE); #51 Billboard 200; #35 Artist 100; #3 World Albums; #8 Top Album Sales; #8 Top Current Album Sales; and #11 Independent Albums.

With their fast-growing stardom and greater-than-ever success into 2023, P1Harmony is looking to continue its momentum and reach new career heights and global recognition through an aggressive promotion strategy in the US. They have already established themselves as a more dynamic and exciting K-POP group with high-quality music and scene-stealing performances. They will continue to build on that momentum, focusing on connecting with International audiences.

Tickets to the P1Harmony concert at the New Frontier Theater on September 9 will be available during the LNPH presale on July 1 (Monday) from 10:00 am to 11:59p while general on sale will be on July 2 (Tuesday) at 12:00 pm onwards.
