Filipinos Face Concert Venue Challenges

6:38:00 PM

Countries with large and competitive concert venues are seeing economic boosts thanks to big-name international acts like Taylor Swift and Coldplay. These concerts draw huge crowds and spur spending, with fans traveling far and wide for the experience.

Take Southeast Asia, for example. When Taylor Swift brought her Eras Tour to Singapore's National Stadium, it wasn't just locals filling the seats. Fans from the Philippines and beyond made the journey, pumping money into the local economy. The same happened in Japan's Tokyo Dome and Australia's Accor Stadium when Coldplay took the stage.

These concerts aren't just about the music—they're about the money. They give a boost to industries like entertainment, hospitality, retail, and transportation. So it's no wonder countries are vying to attract big-name acts and build venues to host them.

1. Location is key

The Philippines doesn’t lack in big venues. In fact, it boasts of venues that can rival Singapore’s National Stadium and Japan’s Tokyo Dome. Accessibility to the location as well as public transportation and nearby commercial establishments are key.

2. Concert Experience

Singapore’s pride, the National Stadium, has innovative features such as the world’s largest free-spanning dome, a retractable roof and comfort cooling technology for spectators’ convenience. Its innovation, strategic location, and efficiency bring positive and immersive experiences for enthusiasts and concert fans, making it a magnet for entertainment acts from all over the world. A similar concert venue and experience is something that Filipino concertgoers are hoping the country can replicate.

3. World-class concert amenities and facilities

Accessing the venue's amenities and facilities should offer a premium music experience for concert enthusiasts or convenience in a sporting event.

Take for example the SM Mall of Asia (MOA) Arena – a flexible indoor arena developed in 2012 by leading integrated property developer SM Prime – that has been a top-of-mind venue for all sorts of events and offers a unique concert experience. With a full house seating capacity of 20,000, it has been a haven for thrilling sports events, remarkable OPM shows, and unforgettable international superstar performances.

Meanwhile, the SMDC Festival Grounds in Parañaque City is likewise an enormous outdoor venue that can accommodate at least 50,000 people. Ed Sheeran’s Mathematics Tour and Rivermaya The Reunion were among the performers that have graced the stage recently.

4. Achieving Filipinos’ concert dreams

One of the most forward-looking plans of SM Prime is its 360-hectare smart city development which is envisioned to bring in a centerpiece to the country’s entertainment and sporting events – larger in capacity and a more enhanced venue infrastructure that would attract legendary icons in the entertainment scene and compete against Southeast Asia and the world’s best. It will feature an estimated 70,000-capacity stadium and concert arena connected to one of the island’s main destination paradises called Central Park. The sizable arena is envisioned to be the Philippines’ biggest concert venue, with world-class facilities and sustainable features, comparable to other big concert venues worldwide. Once that’s built, Filipinos won’t have to fly overseas because they can watch top-tier performances right from the comfort of their home country.

Without a doubt, Pinoys live and breathe entertainment shows. In fact, Filipinos are the 4th top concert spenders in Asia-Pacific according to digital payments company Visa, proof of how passionate we are about concerts. By investing in the development of modern, smart, and accessible concert venues, Filipino concert enthusiasts can continue to embrace and celebrate live performances with the convenience, comfort, and enjoyment they deserve. Beyond entertainment, well-curated, smart, and innovative concert facilities can further drive economic benefits to the Philippines’ national and local economies, including ancillary local spending in retail, tourism, and hospitality.

The Decision Behind BINI's Three-Day Solo Concert: A Strategic Move or Fan Appreciation?

11:45:00 AM

The announcement of BINI's first solo concert at the New Frontier Theater sent waves of excitement through the P-pop community. However, what truly caught the attention of fans was the unexpected decision to extend the concert series to three days, marking a significant departure from the initial plan of a single-day event.

For many, the question arises: Why did BINI choose to expand their solo concert to three days? Was it a strategic move to capitalize on their soaring popularity, or simply a gesture of appreciation for their dedicated fanbase, the Blooms?

According to industry insiders, the decision to add two additional dates to BINI's solo concert was a carefully calculated move aimed at accommodating the overwhelming demand for tickets and ensuring that as many fans as possible could experience the magic of BINIverse.

Since bursting onto the scene, BINI has amassed a devoted following, affectionately referred to as the Blooms, who have stood by the group through every milestone and achievement. Recognizing the importance of their fans' support, BINI and their management team made the bold decision to extend the concert series, allowing more Blooms to be part of this historic moment in the group's journey.

Moreover, the expansion of BINI's solo concert aligns with their overarching goal of connecting with fans on a deeper level and creating memorable experiences that resonate long after the final encore. By extending the concert to three days, BINI aims to foster a sense of inclusivity and belonging among their diverse fanbase, ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to witness their electrifying performances firsthand.

Additionally, the decision to hold a three-day concert reflects BINI's commitment to pushing boundaries and challenging conventions in the ever-evolving landscape of P-pop music. By breaking away from the traditional one-day format, BINI is setting a new standard for solo concerts in the industry, proving that when it comes to delivering unforgettable experiences, the sky's the limit.

As fans eagerly await the arrival of BINIverse, one thing is clear: the decision to extend the concert series to three days is not just a testament to BINI's popularity, but also a testament to the unwavering bond between the group and their dedicated fanbase. Whether it's a strategic move or an act of appreciation, one thing is certain: BINIverse is set to be an unforgettable celebration of music, passion, and the unbreakable connection between BINI and their beloved Blooms.

CFDC's Nutrition Concert at The Manila Hotel

1:05:00 PM

Valentine's Day, a cherished celebration for many, brings with it the allure of romance. Each February, singers and balladeers take the stage, serenading audiences with love songs to ignite passion. However, with this romantic feels, a unique concert will be staged, one that transcends love to advocate for Filipino children. Here are the details.

Teaming up with The Manila Hotel, the Children’s First One Thousand Days Coalition (CFDC) is hosting a dinner concert. The aim? To generate funds for non-governmental organizations dedicated to combating malnutrition among Filipino infants during their critical early years, from conception to their second birthday.


Dubbed "The Greatest Love of All," this pre-Valentine concert is set for Feb. 9, 2024, at 6 pm, taking place at The Manila Hotel's Tent City. The lineup features prominent figures such as former Press Secretary Atty. Mike Toledo, former Executive Secretary Atty. Salvador Medialdea, and The Manila Hotel President and former Senator Joey Lina.

Joining them on stage will be a talented ensemble including Beverly Salviejo, Nina Campos, Jenny Sugay, Rachelle Rule, Rachel Verns, Pam Esquivel, Bobby Alvarez, Egay Rubiano, Jeffrey Panado, Egay Banaag, and the Adeodatus Children’s Choir (Baseco) accompanied by the Manila Philharmonic Orchestra. Steering the musical direction is Rodel Colmenar, while George Sison-Tagle and Paul Dizon oversee the concert's overall direction.


CFDC member organizations include Rotary International, Lions Club International, Kiwanis International, Junior Chamber International, The Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of the Philippines, The Fraternal Order of Eagles - Philippine Eagles, Knights of Columbus, Knights of Rizal, Save the Children Philippines, World Vision Philippines, Brotherhood of Christian Businessmen and Professionals, Philippine League of Government and Private Midwives, Crusade Against Violence, and many more.

In tandem with government, the CFDC was formed to confront a serious problem troubling the Philippines: malnutrition during a child’s First One Thousand Days of Life – a very critical period when the impact of poor nutrition can be profound, long-lasting, even irreversible.

Thus, The Greatest Love of All is not merely an entertainment spectacle but a collaborative initiative to generate funds for the nutrition program of NGOs in the barangays. The CFDC welcomes everyone to participate in this meaningful cause, helping make the nutrition efforts a success and contributing to the goal of fostering “smarter, stronger, taller” Filipinos.

Just Music Night, A Soothing Sound on a Friday Night

11:15:00 PM


After more than two years, it was my first Friday night experience again. It feels like the first time I spent a fun Friday night listening to a band. It sure brings back memories of my younger years in this JUST MUSIC NIGHT, a night filled with beats and emotions where TJ Monterde released his latest single, "Walong Bilyon," together with the other singer-songwriters, Kenji, Patrick Quirros, and NKD.

Just Music is a sub-label of CS Music that caters to different talented singer-songwriters. And these four performers are just a few of the many talents of Just Music.

If you're one of those fans, who enjoy hearing different kinds of masterpieces, especially those with full of emotions and sincerity. The releases from Just Music are what will soothe your ears, and mine too.

Fans, friends, and relatives of these singer-songwriters are present during the event, showing their love and support to their favorite artists. Imagine seeing them perform face to face and live, put the entire crowd into cheer and roar.

Among the four performers, I and other bloggers got a chance to hear three of them sing and present their latest release. Two of them were interviewed. So, better catch the interview on my Youtube. And ironically, Kenji and TJ's releases are somewhat opposite or ying and yang. For Kenji, his songs are more of heart aches like the Liham, while TJ Monterde's "Walong Bilyon" is about his unending appreciation of the impossibility that came true, his love for his wife, KZ Tandingan.

Well, the night ends well with a smile on my face and the rhythm on my ear. I just hope that it is the start of more concerts and performances of different artists in the industry. 

To know more about the latest releases, catch the news on CornerStone Music and Just Music's FB pages.

Ben&Ben to push the boundaries of concert production on a scale that’s never been done before with ‘Kuwaderno’

9:48:00 PM


Ben&Ben are redefining the virtual concert-going experience with the biggest headline show of their career.

Aptly titled Kuwaderno: A Ben&Ben Online Concert, the Filipino nine-piece collective are pushing the boundaries of music shows in the new normal setting by integrating creative disciplines such as drama, dance, orchestra, and technology with a live performance. Their highly anticipated major concert will be staged at the SMART Araneta Coliseum, and will be streamed live on December 5, 2021, from 8pm to 11pm via digital streaming platform,

“We can’t deny the fact that it’s the biggest project we’ve undertaken so far, and I think you just somehow know that it’s a leap of faith when the streams of guidance and providence lead you to the right people who believe in the same vision you have: To bring the music and the messages they carry to life,” the award-winning group said. “This spirit of collaboration was one of the defining themes of our album ‘Pebble House Volume One: Kuwaderno’ and it was only by natural desire that we brought the same spirit and attitude when we began working on the concert. As for the play between grand and intimate, we really wanted our listeners to relish in the grandiosity of what their support means to us. Doing a concert on this scale and bringing them closer into that bigger picture is our way of expressing immense gratitude to them as well.”


The audio-visual spectacle promises to bring the immense joy of experiencing live music and give an impression of conceptual grandness that are at par with the most memorable concerts in recent history. From mounting multiple-stage setups to performing in one of the biggest live music venues in the country, Kuwaderno aims to open new possibilities despite the limitations of the platform, and intimately build a connection with the audience all over the world.

The awe-inspiring creativity and ambition that Kuwaderno dares to achieve, wouldn’t be possible without the collaborators that painstakingly put their heart and soul into the project. Concert director Paolo Valenciano, along with co-director Maribel Legarda, Philippine Theater Association (PETA), and veteran light designer Shakira Villa-Symes—to name a few, understood Ben&Ben’s unique vision and translated them so clearly to create a cohesive piece of work. Ben&Ben attest to how significant their contributions are, not only in turning the concert into a reality, but in making sure that they are able to nurture a creative environment that promotes healthy exchange of ideas. “Working closely with them on this concert only made it clearer to us why they are the biggest names in the industry. The flow of ideas and creative energies really went on naturally because of their openness, and their generosity to share with us their thoughts, but what makes them more admirable is their skill to work within the limitations that we have and to adapt when faced with challenges. We definitely learned a lot from their work ethic.”


Believing in the magic that happens when different forms of art intertwine, the prolific folk-pop asserts that some feelings are best conveyed not just by the music elements alone. This prompted Ben&Ben and their team to include actors and dancers as part of the visual narrative to give the audience a semblance of being physically present with them throughout the concert journey. “Movement and dance and the entire visual narrative of it all woven into our music brought our songs to life,” the band said in a statement. “The talented dancers we’ve worked with, headed by choreographer Gio Gahol, are from different dance groups as well. It is amazing to see how they seem to get along and dance so passionately with each other easily.”

In terms of production design, the team stepped up their game in being more in line with the times, and pushing the envelope in terms of how the music can be represented visually. According to the nine-piece ensemble, each stage has its own purpose, its own symbolisms and visual elements. Even the lighting has its own poignant significance. “We want our listeners to know that each piece of the puzzle was thoughtfully included, and we’re excited to see them piece everything together when they watch the full show.”

The band is confident that Kuwaderno: A Ben&Ben Online Concert will not only deliver unparalleled innovation to local concert productions, but also bring light to a lot of people suffering in silence during the most challenging of times. “Having the opportunity to do so during the pandemic, we also felt such a huge responsibility to be able to inspire more people with stories of humanity and hope. We’ve received a lot of messages from Liwanag (the fan club) telling us how the band has helped them get through the tough times. Hopefully through this concert, we’ll be able to use our platform in making them feel that they’re not alone in this fight.”


Ms. Val Guico, the General Manager of Ben&Ben Music Productions, is also equally grateful to the people involved in the production for making strides in pulling off an envelope-pushing event. According to her, one of the main goals of mounting Kuwaderno is to extend help to the production team whose livelihood and work have been greatly affected by the pandemic. “Bulk of the concert earnings will be shared to everyone behind the scenes,” the concert producer reveals. “They are the unsung heroes of the show. Without them, we wouldn’t be able to bring Ben&Ben’s vision to life.” Tickets to Kuwaderno: A Ben&Ben Online Concert can be purchased via the KTX website. The TINATANGI package (priced at PHP 8,000), which gives you access to the online concert, plus an Exclusive 1 on 1 Harana Session with the band on Zoom and a raffle entry to the Exclusive Ben&Ben House Tour, is already SOLD OUT. Other ticket tiers that are still available include KAIBIGAN (priced at PHP 1,000), MAGKA-IBIGAN (priced at PHP 3,500), and MAHIWAGA (priced at PHP 5,500)—all containing different packages and inclusions.

Kuwaderno: A Ben&Ben Online Concert is brought to you by Ben&Ben Music Productions and SMART Telecommunications Inc., and is co-presented by Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA), Sony Music Philippines, Big Bulb, Chapters, Robinson’s Mall,, Elesi, Cream Silk, Primo, Phirst Park Homes, Novotel, JB Music, Urban Smiles, Summit, Philippine Red Cross, Sennheiser, Verona Audio Design, and Jilla Sara.

Maymay Entrata's concert "MPOWERED" seems to be not her first! 

According to the official press release, the virtual concert is her first and it was introduced that it is going to be an empowerment extravaganza as Maymay Entrata delivers a variety of showstopping performances that will highlight her journey to self-love. The concert happened last November 26, a Friday night concert via, iWantTFC, and TFC IPTV. 

After watching the concert it seems that this is not Maymay's very first, as she is indeed a "KABOGERA" in flaunting the 'birit' and performances. She definitely leveled up her performances this time. A different Maymay Entrata!

“Isa sa mga pinakanagustuhan ko talaga sa concert ay ibang iba 'yung atake, kabogera ‘yung every performance ko doon,” said Maymay, adding that aside from inspiring confidence, “Mpowered” also aims to stress the importance of choosing to be happy.

She explained, “All in all, ang gusto ko lang naman maiparating ay maging empowered at mas maging masaya sila. Kasi gusto ko ‘yung araw ng concert maging isang selebrasyon kumbaga na choice natin na maging masaya.”

So, if you failed to watch Maymay Entrata's concert "Mpowered," here's a bit of info on the lineup of guests that she has.  Mimiyuuuh’s comedic chops, AC Bonifacio’s supreme dancing skills, Darren Espanto’s impressive sing-and-dance talent to Nyoy Volante’s soulful and heartfelt singing, a good set of performances that highlights Maymay in all.

Meanwhile, Maymay’s “Amakabogera” continues its streak of success, having accumulated over 2.8 million music video views, more than 316,000 Spotify streams, and almost 190,000 TikTok entries.

The Kapamilya artist’s live performance of her latest single on the Wish 107.5 Bus has also been received favorably, which now has over 3.5 million views and even peaked at number 2 in YouTube Philippines’ trending videos list.

Maymay said she initially doubted whether she could pull off singing the song live, but was happy with the results and the overall success of the track. “Masaya na ako na nagugustuhan nila ‘yung tono, ‘yung kanta pero ‘yung naiintindihan nila ‘yung lyrics, kung ano ‘yung mensahe ng kanta na ipinapahiwatig sa listeners, dun ako mas natutuwa.”

So, what do you think of Maymay Entrata's performance in her first concert?
