Calum Scott returned to Manila to bring his "Only Human" World Tour on Tuesday night at the New Frontier Theater (Formerly Kia Theatre) and delivered a classy performance for his Manila fans.

The Voice Teens and ASAP star Isabela Vinzon opened the show for the British crooner by performing her latest single "Right Now" and a cover of Lady Gaga's "You And I," which helped start her career. Fans can remember the teen star also opened Calum's Shangri-La showcase in March 2018.

Calum Scott's Filipino fans expressed their excitement as they cheered loudly for Calum Scott as he opened his show with "Come Back Home" and an upbeat track off his debut record "Give Me Something" to set the exciting mood for the night. He performed the album title track "Only Human" followed the pop banger "Rhythm Inside" therefore adding more energy and excitement for what's to come in the concert.

What thrilled the Manila audience more is when Calum performed his rising hit "You Are The Reason," the fans then proved their undying love for the crooner while singing along to his lyrics. This part of the concert alone brought tears to some fans mainly because of the lyrics of the song and Calum's mesmerizing vocals.

The singer showcased his powerful vocals as he let the fans experience an acoustic session on the latter part of the concert. He performed songs off his debut album "Good To You", "Not Dark Yet" and also performed his latest single dedicated to his mom "No Matter What", wherein the crooner expressed how lucky he is to have parents that are understanding of his sexuality. "I'm gay and I'm proud of it," Calum says.

Some songs the singer also performed were "Sore Eyes", an unreleased song/cover, "What I Miss Most", a song about missing his hometown, "Give Me Something", an upbeat song which was supposedly the last song for the night because of "venue reasons".

The Manila audience continued to prove their undying love for Calum Scott as they screamed "WE WANT MORE" all at the same time because they simply wanted more of Calum. The singer came back and delivered  "If Our Love Is Wrong," while letting the fans sing the adlibs and the much-awaited hit cover "Dancing On My Own".

Calum surely didn't dance on his own as the Manila audience accompanied him perfectly with their undying love for the crooner. Calum ended his show and expressed that he would love to come back from time to time and perform songs for his fans in the country.
