Legendary duo Air Supply takes Santa Rosa on May 31



Iconic Australian duo Air Supply takes us back to the 80’s for a special one-night show on 31 May 2018 at the Santa Rosa Sports Coliseum in Sta. Rosa, Laguna. This year’s Philippine concert is the first of several shows part of their Over Asia 2018 Tour following dates all over Canada and the United States.



Still supplying the classic hits 43 years since the release of their debut album, singer-songwriter and guitarist Graham Russell and lead vocalist Russell Hitchcock celebrate their trademark soft rock sound by serenading us once again with their massive catalog of evergreen love songs.



Air Supply began its humble musical journey opening for Rod Stewart back in Australia and eventually across North America and Canada, breaking through a whole new U.S. audience. Subsequent to their fourth studio record, Life Support, was the success of many beloved songs, including “Lost in Love” which unexpectedly rose to Top 10 in Australia. Their refreshing take on soft rock music somehow found its way to the distinguished Arista Records in New York. Immediately after the duo signed with the label, "Lost in Love" became the fastest-selling single in the world, leaping to the top of the charts worldwide. The band’s second single, "All Out of Love," attracted more fans and reigned the charts even longer.



Eight Top 10 hits later, "Lost in Love" was named Song of the Year in 1980, and, with the other singles, sold more than 10 million copies.



Russell Hitchcock's soaring tenor voice and Graham Russell's pure yet majestic lyrics have created a warm signature sound that would live on for a very long time.



Other hits of Air Supply are Making Love Out of Nothing at All, The One That You Love, Here I Am, Two Less Lonely People, Every Woman In the World, Sweet Dreams, I Can Wait Forever, Lonely Is the Night, Having You Near Me, to name a few.



(Air Supply Live in Santa Rosa is produced by Ovation Productions. Tickets available via www.smtickets.com and regular SM Tickets outlets. Ticket Prices are P4,500/ P3,500/ P2,500/ P1,500. For info call SM Tickets +632 470-2222 or Ovation Productions +632 532-8883.)

Sandwich Rocks Metrotent for their 20th Anniversary Concert

Friday the 13th may be considered unlucky but April 13, 2018 has been exceptionally favorable to the iconic band Sandwich for a lot of incredible things. "Under the Glow of the Satellite: 20th anniversary concert" is their biggest and phenomenal show to date that occurred in Metrotent, Pasig City.

It's an honor, a thrill and a commitment to be present and to cover the band’s 20th anniversary concert for Manila Concert Junkies (MCJ). We are grateful to be among MCJ’s trusted people to be able to experience such kind of music celebration. We would also like to thank Jam 88.3 for including us on its big list of attendees.

Billed as Under the Glow of the Satellite, it’s a line taken from one of Sandwich's most popular songs, "2 Trick Pony." The concert is an all-hits essential rock dance party as the audience gets to hear Sandwich the way they want to hear them in a dual stage venue.







Attendees are greeted with food carts selling a variety of Pinoy favorites paired with local beer and other alcoholic booze as well as customize band merchandise items being sold all over the venue.

The event started with performances from few local acts like Autotelic, Ciudad, She's Only Sixteen, Tom's Story, youngsleepyboi, and Diego Mapa. 

20 Years of Music and Wisdom

The band Sandwich, with members Raimund Marasigan (vocals), Diego Castillo & Mong Alcaraz (guitars), Myrene Academia (bass) and Mike Dizon (drums), is one of the most multi-awarded bands in the Philippines.





During the concert, Sandwich not only charmed the fans with their music as magnetic frontman Raimund Marasigan also delivered few words of wisdom – on enjoying concerts in this age of digital technology and asking fans to refrain from watching through their devices during the show.

“We recommend guys that you put your phones down and just enjoy the music... Well, you can take a few photos but iba pa rin when you hear iyong bagsak ng bass and you groove with it,” Raims insists not to worry about taking videos because celebrity videographer Jason Magbanua is documenting the concert for all of us.

For that Friday night, people gathered together for one simple purpose: to celebrate the greatest music milestone of Sandwich with a magnitude of a long-lasting impact in the Philippine music history. The concert was overflowing with love for the band: friends chatting about nostalgic Sandwich experiences and bursting Sandwich classic songs on a buoyant rock-dance celebration.

"It's about taking care of each other," says Raims as he shared pieces of wisdom on how they sustained long-term success as a band spanning two decades. Today, they’re still active in performing, touring and making music.

“Thank you very much for taking care of us and for taking care of everybody. It means a lot,” Raims expresses to the bank of fans behind them.

Sandwich Continues to Rock

For Sandwich, rock ‘n’ roll is never just about the music but also treating each other as family. It is what keeps the band together for so many years. Their achievements are all the more remarkable because they serve as an inspiration for other artists and new generation bands.






Adding to their success is the sustained quality of their musicianship, they are masters of Pinoy alternative rock that has become both instantly recognizable and profoundly influential.

The songs performed include "Butterfly Carnival," "Walang Kadala-dala," "Betamax," "Timelapse," "Hairpin," "Jetlag," "Masilungan," "Sugod," "Maybe," "New Romancer," "Take to the Moon," "Nahuhulog," "Sunburn," "Procastinator," "Kagulo," "Sugod" among others. Sandwich feat "Butterfly Carnival," video below by tabachoi.




With the concert coming to a close, the band found their way to the smaller stage, went crazy on stage, crowd surfing and intimately interacting with people.

It’s a genuinely standout moment, it really turned out to be everything we thought it could be as we relished every second of it. Sandwich is on the top of their game, urged the crowd to engage with the music and showed us how an awesome rock concert is supposed to sound.

As a matter of fact, Sandwich music has transcended from generation to generation, and I am thrilled to see young fans enjoying their sound. It's surreal to witness and be part of the people who made this historic concert happen.

Iconic triumvirate Danao, Dancel, Dumas is back for IISA concert on June 9


Following two successful shows at the Music Museum two years ago, the iconic triumvirate of Johnoy Danao, Ebe Dancel, and Bullet Dumas is back at the concert scene again, and it will be slated in a much bigger fashion.

The trio known as 3D is set to perform at the Kia Theatre on June 9, 2018.  And it came much to the clamor of everyone who has seen them in that iconic music hall in San Juan in 2016, and much of their various bar gigs all over the metro since then.



From the initial duo of acoustic singer-songwriters (Danao and Dumas), the Sugarfree frontman joined the party and the experimentation become an instant success, eventually earning the trust of organizers to stage their first major concert on early 2016 despite meeting skepticism.

“The first DAMA was definitely a risk. Because we were playing on like 200 or 300 people at that time,” Dancel said.

“It was their first concert as producers. They believed in us.” Dumas agreed.

“So when we realized that they have much faith in us, it also helped us to believe in ourselves,” Dancel seconded.

3D was also responsible for rendering one of Sugarfree's hit singles Burnout as a soundtrack for the movie I'm Drunk, I Love You in 2016.

From the feels-driven DAMA, the trio decide to call their upcoming concert IISA since they are poised to have more grand sound in unison.

IISA dahil kahit sobrang dami namin sa entablado this time around, iisa ang tunog na lalabas mula sa amin at ang maririnig ng mga tao,” said Dumas.

“First, it will be on a bigger venue, so it can accommodate a huge crowd to watch us. We have a band that will back us up (Manila String Machine Orchestra), so expect us to have much fuller sound,” said Danao. Kumbaga, makakarinig kayo ng iba't ibang instrumento, at hindi lang yung usual na acoustic guitar namin.

Is it safe to say that 3D is on a roll after IISA? The trio just aims to savor the moments and enjoy everything they have been putting with.

“We'll take it one show at a time,” Dancel claimed. “The best thing about us is that we have our expectations to minimum. Bar gig nga lang gusto namin eh. So yung umabot na kami sa Kia Theatre, it is already a blessing. So gusto ko munang namnamin yun.

Ayaw namin bigyan ang sarili namin ng pressure after ng IISA. So after that, babalik na naman kami sa mga bar gig,” Danao added.

“Mismo. Sa ngayon, itong concert yung ie-enjoy namin. Then next, pagbalik sa mga bar gig, enjoy din namin,” Dumas concluded.

IISA will be held on Saturday, June 9, 2018, at the Kia Theatre in Araneta Center, Cubao, Quezon City. The show will feature the Manila String Machine Orchestra and other special guests.

Tickets are available at all Ticketnet Outlets via its website or by calling 911-5555, or by contacting Joff at 0945-791-8660. For inquiries, you can also check out the trio's official Facebook page.

This event is made possible by Vandals Entertainment and Gabi Na Naman Productions.

Heart stopping performance by The Script during Freedom Child Tour in Manila

When was the last time you felt butterfly while watching a concert? Last night, I witnessed for the second time how Irish band The Script serenaded their beloved Filipino fans as part of their Freedom Child Tour. 




Though it's their fourth time visited in the country, it's the same energy that I'd experienced during their No Sound Without Silent tour three years ago. They astonished every single person inside Mall of Asia Arena as Danny, Mark, and Glen sang some of their hits such as Nothing, The Man Who Can't Be Moved, and Break Even, among others.



Aside from that, they sang No Man Is An Island which is one of the latest singles from their album, Freedom Child. Every single song that they performed which touched my heart and soul. 





It's one surreal night for me and everyone who attended the said concert. Falling in love with their songs that makes me feel better everyday.

How Katy Perry roared Manila for Witness The Tour

Last night, American singer-songwriter and American Idol Season 16 judge Katy Perry performed in front of her Filipino fans as part of Witness The Tour.



Though it was my first time to watch her concert, I was stunned over the superb stage design and powerful performance by Perry. With 20 songs which came from her current and previous album during her ten years in the music industry, everyone's in the crowd had a good time.






During the said concert, Perry picked one lucky KatyCat from the audience and asked to join her on stage which she delighted to learn some Tagalog words. It's feel good Monday evening, as others just returned from Holy Week vacation.






Special thanks to Ovation Productions and AEG Presents for the wonderful opportunity!
