You Me At Six brings Truth Decay Tour to Manila

It’s no secret that Filipino music fans are some of the most loyal, passionate, and energetic in the entire world – never afraid to bare their undying love and support for their favorite artists with the loudest cheers, screams and sing-alongs to each and every word of their favorite tunes.

And this goes for rock fans especially, which is why anyone can bet that internationally acclaimed pop-punk/post hardcore group YOU ME AT SIX’s upcoming show here in Manila is set to be yet another amazing show for the proverbial books – a show no serious aficionado of the genre (or fan of rock music in general, that is…) would want to pass-up.

Scheduled to happen on July 6th, 2023 at the Skydome SM North Edsa, the band – made up of vocalist Josh Fransechi, guitarists Chris Miller and Max Heyler, bassist Matt Barnes and drummer Dan Flint – simply had to include the Philippines as one of its main stops here in the region for their Truth Decay Tour 2023, after local audiences left a lasting impression on the group when they first played the country as headliners for PULP Live World’s Bazooka Rocks 3 festival back in 2014.

And this time, they’re coming back with even more hit singles under their belt and an even louder show.

Hailing from Weybridge, Surrey in England, the five-piece band was officially formed in 2004 and had their first taste of success via their debut album Take Off Your Colours, as critics dubbed the band to be “the UK’s answer to Fallout Boy,” and other media predicting that the band would reach the same heights as American influences and counterparts like Newfound Glory and Panic At The Disco. And the group exceeded most predictions and expectations in the subsequent decade not only with chart-topping singles, but with an explosive live performance and touring ethic. The band has since released seven full-length studio albums and numerous singles, including their recent 2023 release Truth Decay this 2023, which includes powerhouse anthems like “God Bless The 90s Kids,” “Deep Cuts,” Mixed Emotions”and “heartLESS.”

Those singles, along vintage live favorites like “Bite My Tongue,” “Room To Breathe,” “Loverboy” and “No One Does It Better” guarantee that their stop here in Manila will be one of the most eagerly awaited rock shows this year.

So fans better save the date and secure their tickets, which officially go on sale on June 3rd, 2023 via SM Tickets outlets nationwide and online through www.smtickets.com. Bring a friend and spread the word: You Me At Six is coming!

The 1975 in Manila: A Theatrical Performance of an Intimate Moment

Written by Ava Sumortin

Just a week after The 1975 released their latest album, “Being Funny in a Foreign Language,” in October 2022, it was announced that the English pop rock band would came back to the Philippines for the fifth time for the Manila leg of their “At Their Very Best” tour. The first time they performed in the country was in 2014, and they also held their solo concert at the Mall of Asia Arena in 2015 and in 2019. This time, Matty Healy, Adam Hann, Ross MacDonald, and George Daniel met their Filipino fans for a two-night show on May 3 and 4 at the same arena.

Wallice warmed up the crowd as she started her set with “90s American Superstar.” The American singer-songwriter also performed a couple of unreleased songs, “Disappear” and “Loser at Best,” as well as “Punching Bag,” “Best Friend,” “Funeral,” and “23.”

The first day of The 1975 show began when the screen lit up with “Atpoim” written on it. “Atpoim” or “A theatrical performance of an intimate moment” is also the name of their new video series. The band members arrived in an unexpected but at the same time in a The 1975 way: riding motorized toy animals.

Their set started with the upbeat “Looking for Somebody (to Love),” making the crowd sing along and dance. One thing about this latest tour was that it was a surprise what the band would perform. Sure, they had their planned setlists, but they would change it during each performance. It just shows that The 1975 has a remarkable discography. New songs or old, the fans would want to hear everything.

Their set continued with “Happiness,” “UGH!,” “Oh Caroline,” “Me & You Together Song,” and “If You’re Too Shy (Let Me Know).”
Aside from performing songs such as “I’m in Love with You” and “About You,” which are from their fifth and latest album, they also sang “fallingforyou,” “Robbers,” “Somebody Else,” and “It’s Not Living (If It’s Not with You.”

During a break between songs, Matty told the crowd while looking at the arena, “I remember this from the first album. This was the first place you guys filled out.”

“We are very happy to be here. It is always a great experience coming to Manila because we are kind of about ten times bigger than we should be.”
Matty said they would perform more of their old songs as they continued with “Pressure” and “Paris.”

He told the crowd to put their phones down before they performed “Me.” “Just have one moment where it’s just us. And I promise it will have more value than the constant phone thing,” he said.
The last part of the first day’s set was more of the crowd favorites: “Love It If We Made It,” “I Always Wanna Die (Sometimes),” “The Sound,” “Sex,” and “Give Yourself a Try.”

On a personal note, I have seen the band four times so far, and I can say that they’re one of the best artists to see in concert. You go into the venue as a fan and come out with PCD that hits hard. Maybe it’s the songs, the “theatrical performance” (as “Atpoim” says), or the crowd interaction. Maybe they just keep getting better and better with every album and tour. Or maybe it’s something that I cannot exactly pinpoint, and you just have to see The 1975 perform and decide for yourself.

The 1975 At Their Very Best Live in Manila is presented by Pulp Live World.

An Evening with Symphony: Nightwish in Manila

On the evening of March 29, fans of the Finnish symphonic metal band Nightwish gathered at the SM Skydome for what promised to be a night of epic music and unforgettable performances. The band had been touring extensively in support of their latest album, and this stop in Manila, presented by PULP Live World, had been highly anticipated by local music lovers.

As the lights dimmed and the first notes of “Music” and “Noise” rang out, the crowd erupted in cheers and applause, signaling the start of a journey through Nightwish’s incredible repertoire. The band’s signature sound, blending heavy metal riffs with symphonic and operatic elements, was on full display, with each song performed with precision and passion.
Frontwoman Floor Jansen was a powerhouse on the stage, her voice soaring high and low, bringing to life classic Nightwish songs such as “Nemo” and “Storytime,” and newer hits like “Élan” and “The Greatest Show on Earth.” Her stage presence was mesmerizing, and the crowd couldn’t help but sing along to every word.

The band’s instrumentalists, led by founder and keyboardist Tuomas Holopainen, were equally impressive, each bringing their unique skills and talents to the fore. Guitarist Emppu Vuorinen shredded with abandon, while drummer Kai Hahto pounded the skins with relentless energy. Bassist Marco Hietala and Troy Donockley on the uilleann pipes and whistle rounded out the sound, creating a sonic landscape that was both dramatic and beautiful.

As the set drew to a close, the crowd’s energy didn’t wane, and Nightwish came back for an encore, performing favorites like “Ghost Love Score” and “The Greatest Show On Earth.” The night ended on a high note, with the band members taking their bows and the crowd cheering for one more song.

For those in attendance, the Nightwish concert will no doubt remain a cherished memory, a testament to the band’s talent and passion for music.

Legendary Irish hitmakers THE CORRS returning to the Big Dome this October 2023

The wait is finally over! It’s been more than two decades since platinum selling artists THE CORRS have graced Philippine shores and serenaded their Filipino fans with their now-legendary repertoire, and PULP Live World is proud to announce that they are – indeed – bringing the magic back with a slated two-night production this October 21 and 22, 2023 at the Araneta Coliseum.

Hailed as the most successful “family band” to emerge from the late 90s (consisting of siblings Andrea Corr on lead vocals, violinist/pianist/vocalist Sharon Corr, drummer/vocalist Caroline Corr and guitarist/vocalist Jim Corr) the group is scheduled to fly across the globe to personally deliver their smash hits “Breathless,” “Runaway,” “What Can I Do” and “All The Love in The World” to their legion of Pinoy followers who have since made the group’s songs the soundtrack to their lives, mainly due to The Corrs’ knack for incredibly sincere songwriting and well-crafted overall sound.

Officially formed in 1990 in Dundalk, County Louth Ireland, the group has released seven critically acclaimed studio albums (including their 1995 debut Forgiven, Not Forgotten and their 1997 follow-up Talk On Corners, their most successful album to date…), numerous singles and have sold a whopping collective of 40 million albums worldwide. They have won 24 awards out of 48 nominations over their career, including a BRIT Award for ‘Best International Band’ in 1999 and two Grammy Award nominations in 2001 for the songs “Breathless” and “Rebel Heart.”

Aside from these accomplishments in the industry, the band and its members are also adored worldwide for their philanthropic activities – and have been cited for their efforts and contributions to various causes and charities, alongside the biggest artists in the world… all while preserving their deep connection to their fans worldwide.

Without a doubt, The Corrs’ decade-spanning career of producing numerous hit songs that have marked the hearts and lives of generations of music fans is something no one should miss; definitely a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for serious music fans to revisit a time when songs were made to be nothing short of excellent and endearing.

These upcoming shows will be a full-circle moment The Corrs returns to the very same venue where they last performed in September of 2001. From longtime fans to younger aficionados who may very well be the same age as their children, the music of The Corrs remains timeless – especially to the Filipino people, who now have two chances to relive music history.

Tickets to The Corrs Live in Manila go on sale starting March 19th, 2023 at 12 NN, and will be available at all Ticketnet outlets nationwide and online via www.ticketnet.com.ph.  This show is proudly presented by PULP Live World.
