Danish pop band Lukas Graham finally returned to the Philippines last Oct. 22 for their first solo show in the country. The band first performed in Manila in 2019 at a mall show and as special guests at the Wish Music Awards.

Singer and songwriter Andreah opened the night with several of her original songs including “So Far Away,” “Let Me Go Easy,” “Feels Just Right,” and a cover of Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect.” Her soulful voice captivated the audience.

A Great Night for Music
Cheers welcomed vocalist Lukas Forchhammer, drummer Mark Falgren, bassist Magnus Larsson, along with the band’s touring musicians Henrik Møller on bass, guitarist Andreas Lund, and Andreas Stigkær on piano and keyboards.

The band quickly captivated the crowd with songs from their second album, starting off with “Happy Home,” the lively “Take the World by Storm,” and the super catchy “Drunk in the Morning.” Songs from their fourth studio album 4 (The Pink Album) released this year followed, including “Share That Love,” “By the Way,” “Lie,” and “Wish You Were Here (feat. Khalid).”

Lukas’s good energy radiated onstage and he clearly had a good time performing, even if the Pinoy crowd seemed a bit shy at first. He seamlessly transitioned between the band’s upbeat songs and the emotional tracks, even generously sharing backstories of some of their songs. He mentioned that some of their songs had deeper or more serious themes since he also grew up and his life changed drastically since the release of the band’s popular track “7 Years.”

In the middle of the song “Love Someone,” Lukas introduced his special guest Juan Karlos (JK Labajo) who joined in the performance. The crowd’s energy doubled after JK said that the Pinoys should show the band how good we are, and Lukas said he just learned the song that day. JK launched into his original song “Ere,” and Lukas joined in at the perfect moment, which really got the crowd cheering as loud as they could.

For the second half of the show, the band performed a mix of songs including “This Is Me Letting You Go,” “Don’t You Worry ‘Bout Me,” even “Off to See the World” from the soundtrack of the “My Little Pony” movie. In “Strip No More,” Lukas mentioned that the crowd would usually be on their feet dancing by this time, but perhaps the Pinoy crowd went back to feeling a bit shy and just resorted to clapping along with the beat.

Earlier that evening, Lukas mentioned that in their home country the temperature would be going down by now, so the Manila warmth was perfect. He had already stripped down to his undershirt by then, but he also removed it just before performing “Mama Said.”

The band capped the evening off with “Funeral,” then their Grammy-nominated song “7 Years.” Lukas then thanked the audience and said it won’t be the band’s last time in the country.

Overall, it was a great night, and we left the venue with a better appreciation for Lukas Graham’s songs, not just the really popular “7 Years,” and “Love Someone.” We hope it won’t take so long for the band to return. In the meantime, we’ve added their songs to our Spotify libraries.

Lukas Graham performs at New Frontier Theater this weekend

Lukas Graham became one of the first 25 acts to enter Spotify’s Billions Club. ‘7 Years’ is the remarkable story of a poem – a global multi-Platinum #1-hit song with no classic pop hook but a life-changing message to tell of family, friendship and growing older – that paved the way for a Worldwide Danish pop sensation and an unimaginable rise to fame of one of the sincerest songwriters of the 21st century.

‘7 Years’ was released in the Autumn of 2015. It wasn’t a hit over night but a timeless classic. Eventually, Lukas Graham took the stage with memorable performances on some of the biggest American talk shows hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, James Corden, Conan O’Brian, Ellen DeGeneres and Seth Meyers. It was primetime pop poetry that skyrocketed the song and artist into a global phenomenon.

To this day, the official music video for ‘7 Years’ has more than 1,4 billion views on Youtube while the Billion Club-hit is closing in on 2 billion streams on Spotify. The massive success was followed by another milestone: the self-titled international debut album!

From humble beginnings in a Copenhagen hippie commune to sharing the red carpet with the likes of Adele, Justin Bieber and Beyoncé in Hollywood, Lukas Grahams honest reaction, when talking to The New York Times about the astonishing accomplishment, was “Completely surreal”.

Lukas Graham made the headlines again with the release of ‘Love Someone’ also announcing the highly anticipated ‘3 (The Purple Album)’. While the debut album was dedicated to Lukas’ late father, new beginnings began to unfold with ‘Love Someone’. Engaged to his long-time girlfriend and now a father himself, the theme revolved around “the kind of love I’m feeling that I’ve never felt before”.

With an international career, spanning over more than seven years, the singer-songwriter’s journey of self-discovery was portrayed into the words and songs that would become his most honest work to date: ‘4 (The Pink Album)’, inspired by his daughters’ favourite color.

Lukas Graham has toured over the years selling out shows and tours across Europe, North America and Asia – engaging and enchanting audiences with both highly energetic and captivating performances wherever he goes.

Lukas Graham’s concert in Manila will really be a night to remember. Promoted by Midas Productions and KDR Music House. Tickets at ticketnet.com at 4925 (VIP) / 4175 (Orchestra) / 4070 (Loge) / 3655 (Balcony 1) / 3105 (Balcony 2). Tickets are currently on sale.
