HONNE Returns to Manila and Makes Hearts Sing

After four years, HONNE came back to Manila for the fifth time for the Philippine leg of their May 2023 Asia Tour. Thousands of the English synthpop duo’s fans filled the Araneta Coliseum on May 10. The duo, Andy Clutterbuck and James Hatcher, also performed in Davao on May 12 and in Cebu on May 14.

BEKA opened the Manila show with “More Than Friends” and “Don’t Call Me A Friend.” The English singer-songwriter, who has frequently collaborated with HONNE, also told the story behind her song “I’ll Be There” before performing it.

HONNE started their set with “IDGAF About Pain” from “Let’s Just Say the World Ended a Week from Now, What Would You Do?” — their third and latest album. They followed it up with the upbeat “Me & You” and “Free Love,” which got the crowd singing along.

“I can already tell that this is going to be the best night,” Andy told their fans. Providing backing vocals for HONNE’s set, BEKA stole the spotlight with her clear and cool voice when she joined the duo for “Location Unknown.” They followed it up with “Coming Home,” encouraging the crowd to sing along.

In between songs, James said, “I think this is my most favorite gig I have ever played. You guys are the best.”

HONNE continued their set with “306” and “Good Together,” and BEKA shared the stage with them for “Crying Over You.”

A fan named Micah had a sign that said it was their 25th birthday yesterday, so Andy and James asked the crowd to sing the birthday song for them.

The show continued with “Shrink,” and the crowd turned their phones’ lights on for “Heartsong.” BEKA joined HONNE again for “Someone That Loves You” before the duo performed “By My Side,” with Andy dedicating the song to his wife. HONNE also sang “What Would You Do?” and “La La La That’s How It Goes.” Some crowd favorites “Back on Top” and “Warm on a Cold Night” finished the set before their encore.
For the encore, HONNE went back on stage with “No Song Without You.”

“I’m someone who suffers with impostor syndrome. You kind of believe, like, you’re not worthy and you shouldn’t have achieved all these things,” Andy said. “Tonight, for the first time, I feel like we are a proper band.” He also thanked the fans for giving him confidence. James added, “I 100% agree.”

The most requested HONNE song “Day 1” wrapped their Manila set.
While the crowd made their way out of the coliseum, “smile more smile more smile more” played and it ended with the screen showing a message from HONNE to their fans: “Thanks so much for being here today. Take care of each other and get home safely.”

With adorable visuals and colorful lights in the background and fun stories in between dreamy songs, going home from a HONNE show just gives you a warm and happy feeling. It’s no surprise that HONNE has their fans’ support and love since day one.

3 things to look for to at OVERPASS: Kpop Concert on June 11

As seemingly infinite flow of Korean acts continue to fill big venues in the Philippines, OVERPASS: K-Pop Music Concerts offers a night of stellar performances with today’s best of K-Pop – EXO’s Baekhyun, Jeon Somi, and B.I!

Happening on June 11 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum, OVERPASS brings together EXO-Ls, Sommungchis, and I.Ds for the ultimate fan gathering celebrating the excellence of K-Pop music in R&B, Pop, Soul, and Hip-Hop genres.

Baekhyun’s much-awaited return

After being officially discharged from his two-year military service last February, Phixos surely missed seeing the one-and-only Byun Baekhyun! Picking up from the release of his album “Bambi” in March 2021, the main vocalist of EXO is now unstoppable as he has been appearing in festivals around the globe immediately since his return.

Just imagine singing along to “Betcha” and “Candy” as Filo EXO-Ls finally reunite with their beloved Kyoong!

A multi-talented artist, Baekhyun is one of the busiest artists in K-Pop. Apart from EXO and its sub-units, he has also ventured in other acts such as joining the supergroup SuperM, debuting as an actor in “Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo,” and finding massive success as a soloist. In fact, Baekhyun is the first artist since 2001 to achieve a million sales for his EP “Delight” and he then went on to receive his second million-seller with “Bambi.” Baekhyun also achieved the most “Best Male Artist” trophies after winning 3 years in a row at Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) history, a prestigious music awards show in South Korea.

Jeon Somi’s first visit to the Philippines

Best known for her viral tracks “DUMB DUMB” and “Birthday,” hitmaker Jeon Somi will finally come to the Philippines! OVERPASS marks the soloist’s very first visit to the country and Filo Sommungchis are in for a treat as their yearning to hear Somi live will finally come true.

Recently, her hit songs “What You Waiting For,” “XOXO,” and “DUMB DUMB” were featured in the new romcom series Netflix’s “XO, Kitty” which is currently one of the top streamed shows at the streaming giant.

B.I endless love and appreciation for PH I.Ds

Kim Hanbin (stage name: B.I) is indeed in love with his Filo I.Ds. In just a year, the rapper-producer has paid a visit to the Philippines twice – one for a fanmeeting last August 2022 and one for a solo concert last March 2023. OVERPASS will be the artist’s third solo visit in the Philippines.

The solo hip-hop act will be having his comeback this June 1 with the release of his second studio album “To Die For.” B.I has been performing the title track “Dare to Love” at various festivals prior to its official drop, and who knows, maybe the lucky audience of OVERPASS will be one of the first to hear the new tracks live!

Tickets for the OVERPASS: K-Pop Music Concert are available for purchase at TicketNet outlets nationwide and online at www.ticketnet.com.ph.

Ticket holders from each section will receive fan benefits ranging from souvenir cards, posters, lanyards, and even a chance to get a free album of the artists!

Gear up and get ready to ride the K-pop wave at OVERPASS! Hope to see you there, chingus!
