Edited by Jamie Ortega

The Big Dome was filled with teen hearts last March 20 for the first concert of Demi Lovato in Manila. Our very own Khalil Ramos performed for the opening act, his fans made sure that their presence and support for Khalil would be noticeable with all their clapping and howling. A few minutes after his performance, the venue went dim while the crowd went crazy filling the coliseum with screaming fans and glow sticks everywhere already pumped for the concert they’ve been waiting for since their first experience of Demi in Disney’s Camp Rock. As soon as the band started performing and demi began waltzing on the stage, fans of all ages went ballistic at the sight of the singer.

Other DJs that have stopped over include Porter Robinson, R3hab, Dirty South, Dash Berlin, Ferry Corsten, and Alesso among others.

This April 27th, however, will see the largest EDM dance party that has ever rocked the country—because what’s better than partying with one international DJ? Seven.

Concert Roundup: Top 10 things I learned from Foursome: The Repeat

Concert Roundup: Top 10 things I learned from Foursome: The Repeat
Written by Jamie Ortega || Photos by Kris Rocha

  1.    Last Saturday, March 16, 2013, I learned a couple of things from the Foursome: The Repeat concert held at the Mall Of Asia Arena, and here is the first: that not every concert deserves a second run, but in this case I will gladly give an exception. It is not every day that you get four of the best artists in the country, Ogie Alcasid, Regine Velasquez, Pops Fernandez, and Martin Nivera for one spectacular show that lit up the Mall Of Asia Arena  and I was very happy to be a part of it.
  2.    Concerts that begin on a high note set the mood for the entire night. For the opening number Regine, Ogie, Martin and Pops  energized the entire arena with an energetic rendition of The Wanted’s I Found You. Regine wore a black tube and shorts with a gold shawl covering her entire body while Pops flaunted her sexy figure in a red dress. Both Martin and Ogie looked dapper in gray suits. Their voices blended naturally
