47 days after their debut in Korea, HORI7ON set the Araneta Coliseum stage on fire on their first ever concert Friend-SHIP: Voyage to Manila.

Composed of Vinci, Kim, Kyler, Reyster, Winston, Jeromy and Marcus, the global pop group started with their performances from tracks “Meteor,” “Dash,” and “Tiger,” “Lovey Dovey,” “Odd Eye,” and “Hit Me.”

It followed by greeting their Filipino Anchors who showed support to their concert and expressing their excitement of finally meet them after months of training in Korea. “Sobrang na-miss namin kayo and na-miss namin 'yung mga fan chant at sigawan n'yo,” said Kim.

The group continued with their amazing performances with songs from their first studio album “Friend-SHIP” including their title track “SIX7EEN” and “Birthday.”

The members also showed their Anchors with their spectacular solo performances. Winton's "Teum," Marcus' "Light Way," Jeromy's "Bonnie & Clyde," Vinci's "Ready to Burn," Kim's "Like a Fiction," Kyler's "Silhouette," and Reyster's "Cost."


The audience were surprised with their special guests New:ID, TFN, and Lapillus member Haeun who also joined them in ther performances.

As a global pop group, HORI7ON also showcased their talent by performing dances from some of the K-pop groups such as TOMORROW X TOGETHER's "Sugar Rush Ride," "Stray Kids' "S-Class," SEVENTEEN's "Super," "ENHYPEN's "Drunk-Dazed, with a bonus as Reyster danced to NewJeans’ “ETA” and Vinci with Jeon Somi’s “Fast Forward.”

The Anchors felt emotional when the group sang “Mama” and “Salamat” dedicated to the people who never ceased in supporting them since the start of their journey. Of course, they wouldn’t let the day end without singing “Take My Hand” which is their anthem in Dream Maker, the Kapamilya survival reality show where it all started.

An encore performance of SIX7EEN and Dash ended their concert leaving Anchors with hearts filled of joy and gladness.
