Black Eyed Peas to Unite for Grand Concert on October 25!

Most sections full! Tickets selling like pancakes! This is the latest update from Futuretainment and Music Management International, producers behind successful and most enjoyed concerts such as Bruno Mars, Maroon 5, Miley Cyrus and Thirty Seconds to Mars. The Black Eyed Peas dance and all-hits concert happening next month on October 25, 2011 at the Mall of Asia open concert grounds is deemed to be one of the grandest concert experiences to grace Filipinos and Asians this year! 

Over 10,000 fans of Black Eyed Peas from Beijing, Brunei, Hong Kong, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Macau, Singapore, Shanghai and Taipei are going to work their bodies, dance all night and party like never before with the BEP in Manila! With the help of Philippines’ largest airline, Cebu Pacific, Filipino fans not only in Legazpi, Cebu, Davao, Cagayan de Oro, Iloilo, Bacolod and Zamboanga but citizens and Pea-ple fans in our neighboring countries got the chance to meet the BEP halfway with 50% off their flight fare! 

The multi-Grammy Award winning and hottest selling group composed of rappers (William Adams), Filipino (Allan Pineda), Taboo (Jaime Gomez) and recently wed songstress Fergie (Stacy Ann Ferguson) are also equally excited to be back in the Philippines to perform some of the world’s favourite songs. The crowd are expected to jump with them with “Boom Boom Pow,” “The Time-Dirty Bit,” “Let’s Get It Started,” “Imma Be Rocking That Body,” and “Don’t Stop The Party.” 

Futuretainment head and actor Marvin Agustin believes the BEP is one of the greatest music groups of our generation. “People from all walks of life can easily relate to their songs, they get inspired from their songs lyrics and lately, their songs move the crowd! Their concert is something special, something beyond entertainment. Good music and message! Definitely an experience only The Black Eyed can offer,” says Marvin. He also has good words for BEP member or Allan Pineda. “Allan has steadily been an inspiration to us and having an awesome and powerful group such as the BEP to perform in the Philippines is such a great honor and privilege to the Philippines,” added Marvin.
For more information on BEP tickets, call SM Tickets at (02) 470-2222, TicketWorld at (02) 891-9999 and Futuretainment hotlines at (02) 577-3265 and (02) 586-7275. For updates to the BEP Live in Manila 2011 concert, log on to

Libera Christmas Concert in Manila 2011

Libera Christmas Concert
Angelic Voices…Nothing Compares

Due to popular demand, Libera is coming back to Manila for Christmas and the world-renowned vocal band will be performing on October 25 at the PICC Plenary Hall.

The distinct sound of Libera comes from the blending of voices of its members with some as young as seven. Their heavenly music varies from classical pieces of Beethoven, Debussy, Pachelbel and other masters to Gregorian chants and Latin rite liturgies. Among the group’s most popular songs include “Always With You,” “Far Away,” “Going Home,” “How Can I Keep from Singing,” “Sing Forever,” “Ave Maria,” “Sanctus” and “Adoramus,” among others.

The boys who make up the vocal band Libera have been described as “normal” and “ordinary.” However, as their recordings and performances demonstrate, the music they produce is truly extraordinary. With shimmering, mystical chords and ecstatic harmonies, they are unlike any other group you have ever heard. These are truly sounds to lift the soul.

Libera is nothing like any other boy band in the music scene today. The chart-topping London boys choir is recognized around the world and their ethereal music is praised for sounding classic and modern at the same time.

The singers of Libera who are aged seven to sixteen attend many different local schools in South London and come from a variety of backgrounds. Although they are boys and they sing, they do not think of themselves as choir boys, but rather as an alternative kind of boy band.

In 2008, they held a US Tour where they staged astounding performances at the “Kennedy Center Honors” in Washington, DC and in the “Concert of Hope” offered by Pope Benedict XVI in New York.  The choir also did highly-acclaimed concerts in Japan and South Korea and had performed with international artists like Bjork, Elton John, and Lucianno Pavarotti.

Libera went to the Philippines for the first time last October 2009 and performed sold-out concerts in Manila and Cebu.

Libera’s repertoire included “Orinoco Flow” by Enya, in reference to the island of Cebu, and “Bayan Ko,” the unofficial anthem of the EDSA Revolution, which got the boys a standing ovation and left audiences amazed and mystified by their divine voices.


The world’s chart-topping London boys choir will be singing songs from their new album, “The Christmas Album.” Libera is set to astound Filipino audiences with their magical chords and ethereal harmonies singing yuletide carols like “Joy To The World,” “O, Holy Night,” “White Christmas,” and “The First Noel.” The album will be globally released this October.

The concert is in celebration of the PHL-UK Friendship Week and for the benefit of the British Alumni Association’s (BAA) Foundation for Disadvantaged Children and Children’s Hour, in cooperation with the British Embassy Manila, British Chamber of Commerce Philippines, The British Council, EMI and PolyEast Records.

Special thanks to our sponsors Shell, Bank of Singapore, Smart Communications, thunderbird Resorts, United Overseas Bank Philippines, SGV, Stradcom Corporation, EEI Corporation, Alaska Milk Corporation, and Phil-Am Asset Management, Inc.

Libera, The Christmas Concert of the Year is staged on 25 October 2011at PICC Plenary. Tickets are priced at P1000, P2000, P2500, P4000, P5000, and P7000.

The Wild Swans in Cebu and Manila this 2011

"Liquid mercury, you were made for me, mine mine alone, I'm not made of stone.” (Liquid Mercury by The Wild Swans from the album The Coldest Winter For A Hundred Years).

As that song lingers on, it seemed that after all these years, Paul Simpson could not let the dream go for him and The Wild Swans to soar.

The sojourn began  20 years back with a string of hits starting with “Revolutionary Spirit”, to the formation of their first full length album “Bringing Home The Ashes” with their carrier single of the same name which was followed by “Bible Dreams”, “Young Manhood”. 

The Wild Swans went on hiatus as Simpson collaborated with one of the backbones of the New Romantic movement, Ian Broudie, and their short lived project, “Care” that produced hits like “Whatever Possessed You”, “The Worst Year Of My Life” and “My Boyish Days”.

            Simpson retreated and  regrouped the group together in 1990 for the album “Spaceflower” with a fruity supply of hits such as “Melting Blue Delicious”, “Chocolate Bubblegum” and “Vanilla Melange”.

            The Wild Swans never left ground during the 90s until 2009 when Simpson started to write again and introduced “English Electric Lightning” and “Liquid Mercury” and has progressed on since then.

            After all the lamentations and grief, Simpson now  boldy leads The Wild Swans with a new set of band members hailing from different genres such as Ricky Rene Maymi (Brian Jonestown Massacre/The Triffids/Steve Kilbey of The Church), Les Pattinson (Echo and The Bunnymen), Mike Mooney, Stuart Mann and Richard Turvey with definite rock laden sound yet without abandoning his quixotic and romantic lyrics.

            The Wild Swans will touch base in the Philippines for a two - night concert on September 30, 2011 at The Waterfront Hotel in Lahug Cebu City and on October 1, 2011 at 1 Esplanade, MOA, Pasay City in which both concerts are brought to the public by Jesse Gonzales of DMC Philippines whose reputation precedes him as the former OIC and Station Manager of DWXB 102.  A radical radio station during the early 80s the promoted the New Romantic Movement and the reverberation of New Wave music in the airwaves.

            Tickets are widely on sale at The Waterfront Hotel, Cebu City, all SM Ticket and Ticketworld outlets.
