Celine Dion's Manila concert cancelled; refund of tickets on August 18

Sad news to all Celine Dion fans!




Singer Celine Dion announced thru her official website about the cancellation of her concert tour, to give time for her husband, Rene who has been battling cancer for years.


Celine Dion has decided to postpone all of her show business activities indefinitely, in order to focus 100% of her attention on her husband Rene, their family, and associated health issues. Since Rene's surgery last December to remove a cancerous tumor, it's been a very difficult and stressful time for the couple as they deal with the day-to-day challenges of fighting this disease while trying to juggle a very active show business schedule, and raise their three young children.
Celine has also been fighting an illness that has caused inflammation in her throat muscles, and has not been able to perform any of her scheduled shows in Las Vegas since her last show on July 29th. She has still not recovered from this condition. 
"I want to devote every ounce of my strength and energy to my husband's healing, and to do so, it's important for me to dedicate this time to him and to our children. I also want to apologize to all my fans everywhere, for inconveniencing them, and I thank them so much for their love and support." said Celine. 
During this hiatus, Celine will cancel her shows at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace until further notice. She will also cancel her tour of Asia, previously scheduled for the fall of this year.
Celine and family have requested that their privacy be respected at this time.

Aside from her supposed to be one-night only concert in Manila on November 29 , she also cancelled her two-night gig in Tokyo, Japan.

My awesome JLo Dance Again World Tour Manila experience


November 26, 2012: As I rushed from a meeting in Makati, when I set foot MOA Arena, I said: It's gonna be the night.

It's been two years when I watched JLo's Dance Again World Tour. Few days before the said concert, I joined PLDT Home's JLo Twitter contest, won the said contest and scored two tickets. And coincidentally, it was a day after my birthday.



As thousand of fans trooped in at SM Mall of Asia Arena, as Latina diva visited Manila for the first time, and part of her world tour. Opened up the night was energetic performance by Philippine All-Stars, and it was followed by a duet by RnB prince Jay-R and sultry Mica Javier.


The JLo tix. From my Instagram account


When my elder sister, Michelle and I saw JLo's dancers going up on stage, we knew that it will be an awesome night. As far as I can remember, she sang at least 20 songs from her albums. JLo rocks SM MOA Arena! As we went wild on our chair and danced with her songs, imagine that I danced just because of JLo...lol!

She flaunts her six pack abs as she performed her 20 of her greatest hits.

One of the highlights of JLo's Manila tour is when she did the acoustic version of "If You Had My Love", she picked one of the fans near the stage and sang along with her. Also, she shook hands with fans, did a selfie using one of the audience's mobile phone, and raised the Philippine flag draped around her shoulders.

Hope that JLo will visit Manila again and I'll dance all night!

David Blaine will visit Manila for one magical night on Sept.12

Few weeks ago, upon reading the news about magician David Blaine will visit Manila, me and Ian started our conversation with: OMG! David Blaine will be here!!! We liked him because of his outrageous magic stunts and stunned over his ability to do the tricks without harm.

We've been watching videos of his out-of-this-world magic tricks since his first television special, David Blaine: Street Magic in 1997. Stunned over his death-defying tricks during the Buried Alive in which he was entombed in an underground plastic box and underneath three-ton water tank for seven straight days.

As far as I can remember, my dad gave us a chance to watch David Copperfield when he visited Manila in 1989, and coincidentally, it's the same people behind Blaine's one-night only live show in the country.



As Ovation Productions, in cooperation with cable TV channel, AXN brings illusionist, and magician David Blaine Live in Manila. It will be held on September 12 at Araneta Coliseum.

If you want to see him doing his heart-pumping magic tricks, get your tickets in all Ticketnet outlets, TicketNet online or call  911-5555.
