Big must-see concerts in 2018

This year’s lineup is something to look forward to with big names on the international music scene heading to Manila to stage their shows.

 As we anticipate these live performances, we have come up with a list of the biggest must-see concerts that will surely enliven Manila’s concert circuit this 2018:

 James Reid and Nadine Lustre

Power couple JaDine is set to hold their second major concert on Feb. 9 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum. Titled Revolution: The JaDine Concert is one of the biggest and most anticipated local concerts happening next month. Will they spread the same onstage kilig that happened during their first major concert together? That’s what we need to find out. 


The American rock band from Franklin, Tennessee is bringing its Tour Four to Manila on Feb. 18. The trio will be performing at the Mall of Asia Arena according to the concert’s local promoter. According to the venue’s management, tickets to the concert were sold out in 48 minutes when they went on sale on Nov. 22 last year. This is the third time that Paramore will perform in Manila.

John Legend

The ten-time Grammy Award winner and multi-platinum selling singer-songwriter will be returning to Manila for his highly anticipated Darkness And Light World Tour on March 21. Happening at the Araneta Coliseum, the show will feature the singer’s well-loved singles  including “All Of Me,” “Ordinary People,” “Green Light,” “Used To Love U,” “Save Room,” and “Tonight (Best You Ever Had),” to name a few.

 Katy Perry

The American singer-songwriter is set to return to Manila to stage a one-night only concert  on April 2. The concert is part of the Asian leg of her Witness tour, which has been described as “an imaginative trip from outer-space to inner-space, from the planets to the bottom of our oceans, and a musical journey through Katy Perry’s biggest milestones and mega-hits right up to her latest album.”

Ed Sheeran

English singer, songwriter, guitarist, and record producer is resuming his Divide World Tour. He will be performing in Manila on April 8 at the Mall of Asia Concert Grounds. The singer had to re-schedule his concert dates in Osaka, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Manila to undergo therapy for his arms which he injured in a biking accident in October.

 Bruno Mars

The award winning singer is heading back to the Philippines for a two-night concert at the Mall of Asia Arena on May 3 and 4. Billed 24K Magic World Tour, the show marks the 3rd time Bruno will perform in the country. His last concert in the Philippines was in 2014, during his “Moonshine Jungle Tour.”
