5 Reasons Why You Should Watch Playback Music Festival Presents featuring A1 and O-Town





What’s up, fanboys and fangirls?! Get ready for the ultimate throwback event you wouldn’t want to miss for the world! It’s A1 and O-Town performing back-to-back at the Mall of Asia Arena on November 9th, Saturday, for a one-night show only.

Thanks to the team effort of Super Awesome Productions and All Access Production -- reminiscing the glory days of the ‘90s is made more exciting than ever!

To make you all giddy, we’ve rounded up 5 amazing reasons why you should watch the Greatest Hits LIVE featuring A1 and O-Town.

1. You get to wear your favorite 90’s outfit



Pulling off a great outfit for a concert can be quite a tedious task so we’re giving you outfit ideas on what to wear on November 9th. Woot!

  • You can never go wrong with a graphic tee! Just pair it with a black leather jacket, cool accessories, flat shoes, a platform heels, or sneakers.
  • If you want to look like you came out of a Spice Girls’ video, try pairing bralettes and high-waisted midi skirts, a perfect mix of high-waisted jeans and a crop top, or perhaps vintage tees or a denim skirt. (It’s all about mix and match 😉)
  • If you’re someone who likes to wear an all-black ensemble, then why not go for a retro look. Try a black dress and a bomber jacket, then a black combat boots.
  • For the guys, we recommend you wear bandanas, a windbreaker, perhaps a cargo pants, and baggy jeans (But it’s best if you watch one of the music videos so you can get a gist of other outfit ideas)
2.    Sing your favorite A1 and O-Town Jams LIVE in one night!




For the 90s fans out there, this event may be one of the best things that have ever happened this year. There are probably dozens of songs of the past which happens to be your ex’s theme song or your current beau’s jam – be it from A1’s “Everytime” if you’re dedicating this one for your TOTGA (The One That Got Away) or O-Town’s “All Or Nothing” for that one person who can’t love you back as much as you love him/her. (Ouch)

But it’s not about listening to Spotify and cassette tapes anymore! We all get to see these amazing guys share the same stage to swoon their fans, and who knows, might invite some lucky fans on stage to join them in a performance (wink wink)

3.    Meet an army of adorable A1 and O-Town fans



A1 Philippines, A1 Reunited PH, and the army of loyal O-Town fans, I know that you’re all giddy -- now that the concert is happening in just a few weeks. You’ve probably saved money for merch or perhaps your flight ticket to Manila, and can’t wait to meet all your long-time friends and virtual friends in your street team! I know some of these awesome admins and I can’t wait to see them soon as well. (Sending virtual hug if you’re reading this)

Make sure to capture all the great memories on November 9th – it’s sure is gonna be a night to remember!

4.   The Perfect Weekend to Escape Reality



Adulting sucks, right? However, if your idea of a perfect weekend would be seeing with your first love (mentions Ben Adams for example) – then better get those tickets already because you don’t know the next time they’re coming back.

It’s also not just any other weekend, but a nostalgic one worth celebrating for.

5.    You only get to pay P5,900 ($60) for an SVIP ticket with meet and greet



Yup, you’re read it right. You only need to shed out P5,900 to watch and meet the boys in person! It will also be the first time O-Town is coming to Manila, so that’s something to look forward to!

Platinum A (VIP floor-Seated): P4500
Platinum B (VIP-Seated) P4000
Lower box Gold: P3000

Homegrown talents glowed up TELUS International Philippines' Town Hall

Last October 6, TELUS International Philippines held its annual Town Hall.  Pearly shells, palm trees, and cabanas splashed with neon lights were the setting of the said event. With the theme, “Neon Island,” TIP treated its team members and long-time partners to a fun-filled and exciting celebration at the Globe Circuit Grounds in Makati City.




Gathering the largest event crowd in TELUS International Philippines’ history, over 7,500 team members took a break from work to embrace the company’s fun and diverse work culture and celebrate their hard work. TELUS International Philippines is one of the leading BPO and digital solutions companies in the country with more than 16,000 team members across Metro Manila.


“TELUS International Philippines has always valued work-life balance as an important aspect of building a healthy work environment. Town Hall is one of the biggest venues where our team members, long-time partners, and leaders get together and enjoy the company’s fun culture,” said TELUS International Director for Brand, Marketing and Culture, Carlos Giammattei.

Giammattei added, “Engagement activities such as the annual Town Hall are one of the many reasons why our team members choose to stay with the company.”

The music-filled night was hosted by Luis Manzano and Alex Diaz, and was graced by OPM artists including Morisette, Kamikazee, UltraCombo, Ben & Ben, Parokya ni Edgar, Patty Tiu, Mark Thompson, and A-Team.























Team members expressed their individuality and creativity, arriving in outfits that reflected their own sense of fashion, style, and pride, in line with the event’s theme. There were also dozens of side activities, from mystery rooms, arcade games, and games prepared by the organization’s special interest groups. Attendees were given free treats from different booths that served a wide variety of food, drinks, and games.

Leigh Nash of Sixpence None the Richer performs series of shows in Ayala Malls

It was indeed the year of the comeback as lead vocals of one of 90’s favorite alternative groups Sixpence None the Richer, Leigh Nash returns to the Philippines for a series of intimate acoustic shows in several branches of Ayala Malls in Manila, which started from September 27 until October 6.


She was the voice behind classic tracks such as “Kiss Me”, “There She Goes”, and “Don’t Dream It’s Over” to name a few. The last time she was here was during the Playback Music Festival in 2018, where she performed alongside Stephen Speaks, Vertical Horizon, and BLUE.

Hailing from Texas, Leigh Nash’s influence in country music and her refreshingly authentic voice is evident. Let’s admit it - it was everyone’s jam in the ’90s, and you’ll know it’s her song from the moment you hear that 5-second guitar intro of “Kiss Me” to the eclectic cover song of “There She Goes”, and these are just some of the reasons why she skyrocketed as one of the most loved artists in the ’90s.

Also, their group received two Grammy Award nominations and Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals for "Kiss Me"















We're fortunate to watch the Alabang show last October 5th, Saturday, which happens to be the second to the last show, thanks to Ayala Malls and Super Awesome Productions.

It was an exciting weekend for some fans, as they get to sing along some of their favorite tracks, and meet Leigh Nash in person. Together with her touring guitarist and back-up singer Bradley Meinerding, Nash took the stage, all smiles in her black dress, and to a rapturous applause, playing her first track “Don’t Dream It’s Over” followed by “There She Goes”, “Breath”, “Name”, and “Melody Of You”.

The new song “God Gave Me Horses” is also instantly likable with its great melody and Nash’s resplendent vocals. The crowd also swooned as she performed “Need To Be Next To You” which received significant radio airplay in 2000.

She ended her set with the nostalgic “Kiss Me” and made everyone in the venue sing along with her.

Kudos to the whole team of Super Awesome Productions and Ayala Malls for a successful event.
