Almost 7 months after B.I.’s first fanmeet in the Philippines, Filo IDs got to see him again live in action last March 5 for his B.I. 2023 Asia Tour L.O.L. Hidden Stage in Manila.
With the PICC Plenary Hall full of anticipation from fans, the Korean rapper B.I. (Kim Han Bin) opened the show with his hit single ‘BTBT’. Following that, he performed his Show Me the Money 3 performance ‘Be I’ and solo single ‘One and Only’.
During his ment, Filo IDs kept on asking him to remove his jacket while chanting “Take it off!”. While seriously considering his beloved fans request, he replied that he is not yet ready but will only take off half of it. He also performed other top songs from his past albums and singles such as ‘Waterfall’, ‘Flame’, ‘Stay’, ‘Got it like that’, ‘Stay’, and many more. He serenaded Filo IDs with his sweet songs ‘Lover’ and ‘Middle with you’.
He showed how much he loves his fans by roaming through the venue not just once, but twice, to meet and greet every single Filo IDs in the middle of his performance. King of fanservice indeed!
With the arrival of a special guest, fans screamed loudly as James Reid surprised the fans with his ‘You and I’ performance. During his ment with B.I., James recommended him to eat balut to commemorate his visit in the Philippines.
After that, he continued to give a rocking performance of his songs like ‘Illa Illa’, ‘Keep me up’, ‘Numb’, ‘COSMOS’, and more.
Before ending the show with ‘Re-birth’, Filo IDs were finally able to show their long awaited core memory project for their beloved idol. A special video just for B.I. was flashed in the screen. While watching, B.I. felt emotional and was teary eyed at the end of the video. He extended his gratitude and said that he will forever treasure the love Filo IDs have given.
As the night is still young, B.I. performed two to-be-released songs during his encore stage. As if this is not enough to excite the fans, he shared that he would release his next album three months from now! As his finale song, he presented and sang with his fans his hit song ‘COSMOS’.
Before officially ending the concert, some of the fan benefits included a photo opportunity with B.I. and a send-off session, for VIP ticket holders. This event would not be possible without the dedication of Three Angles Production and the countless staffs behind the scenes to give Filo IDs the best concert they deserved.
