Wallows gets warm welcome from Filipino fans

Whether they were front-row barricade, or in the middle of the pit, fans of alternative rock band, Wallows, made sure to show them all the love they’ve got on their first-ever visit in the Philippines.

Before the show started, fans lined up early to get their official merch that got sold out almost immediately. Packed together in the pit, they waited eagerly for the lights to dim out and for the signature stage lamps display to light up.

Long-time friends and bandmates, Dylan Minnette, Braeden Lemasters, and Cole Preston, delivered a powerful performance filled with vocals and booming instrumentals that kept their fans on their feet.


Starting with I Don’t Want To Talk, the lead single fresh off their sophomore album, Tell Me That It's Over, the band swiftly moved through their hour and a half-long setlist. Performing both new tracks and songs from older EPs that took us to a trip down memory lane, the band melded perfectly with their fans who knew all tracks by heart. Fan favorites like Especially You, Pictures of Girls, and Remember When definitely got the crowd dancing in no time.

Dylan (who popularized Clay Jensen in hit Netflix series “13 Reasons Why”) said they really loved their Filipino fans for being so energetic and supportive. Both him and Braeden enthusiastically kept going to all sides of the stage the entire night so they can see the crowd up close. During one of their ments, Cole said that he was happy to finally do a show here. He shared about how they went out on a stroll a day before the show and that he really liked Jollibee spaghetti. Before ending their set, they said they’re already excited to go back and see more of the Philippines.

The fans went all out for the anticipated encore song, Are Your Bored Yet?, making it just as much as a night to remember for the trio.

Wallows will be continuing the Asia leg of their Tell Me That It’s Over tour starting with Singapore, going to Thailand, South Korea, and Japan. They’ll also be doing a 2-day show in Hawaii before embarking on their Latin America tour that will stretch out until Q3 of 2023.
