8 of the Best Concerts That Kept Music in Our Hearts Alive this 2016

By Tynne De Leon


It’s been a great year for music; lots of new albums came out this year and more international artists from our concert bucket list were finally ticked off! As we wait for the releases of 2017, we’ve rounded up the most popular concerts in Manila that made us swoon:

8. The Get Weird Tour Manila (Little Mix)


It was an enchanting night in May when one of our favorite British girl groups came to Manila and sang their popular hits like “Secret Love Song” and “Black Magic”. The concert was full of high energy, and music critics praised their powerful vocals and dance moves. We do hope it won’t be their last, because we can’t wait to hear them belt out their songs live again.


7. MTV Music Evolution Manila (Various artists)


MTV does it again this year, with even a more solid line-up of artists than before from both the local and international scene. Fans of Jadine, Gary and Gab Valenciano, Bebe Rexha, Far East Movement, A Pink and OneRepublic flocked to SM Mall of Asia concert grounds even on a rainy night for this awesome musical experience.  And the best part: it was all for free!

It was A Pink’s first time in the country, and imagine how memorable this night was for the fans who waited a long time to see them live.


6. Revival Tour Live in Manila (Selena Gomez)


Hollywood’s most-followed celebrity on Instagram, Selena Gomez, has been in the industry for years, but it was her first time to hold a concert in the country. So imagine our giddiness when we finally heard her songs sung live! We hope she’ll come back next time with an international guest artist. *fingers crossed*


5. In The Mix (Various artists)


It was a night packed with different international artists— Panic! At the Disco, The 1975, Third Eye Blind, James Bay, Elle King, and Twin Pines—singing to Filipino crowd’s neverending delight. And, boy, the crowd went wild! Everyone sang, grooved and screamed to every song. People raved about this great mix of talented artists, and we hope it won’t be the last time.
