South African-born Australian singer, songwriter, actor, and YouTuber Troye Sivan is bringing his worldwide hits to Manila as part of his seven-city The Bloom Tour that kicked off in Japan in December.
The “Youth” singer will perform on 1 May at the Mall Of Asia Arena, as confirmed by concert promoters MMI Live and Live Nation, together with Smart as presenter. The concert tour is in support of the release of his critically acclaimed sophomore album, Bloom.
Sivan’s Asian tour will have other stops in South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Thailand.
Born in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1995, Sivan was a celebrated child star in his adopted hometown of Perth, Australia. Home-schooled, he began singing and acting at a young age, but his biggest break came when he appeared as a young Wolverine in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
As a child of the digital age, Sivan launched his YouTube channel with videos of musical performances, originals, and cover songs and later began to upload weekly video blogs documenting the minutia of his teenage life in Perth which quickly garnered a loyal international audience.
Sivan also showcases his acting talents in the 2018 film, Boy Erased, alongside award-winning stars Nicole Kidman and Russell Crowe. His debut album, 2015’s Blue Neighbourhood, introduced him to the pop mainstream, landing in the Billboard Top 10 with the singles “Wild” and “Youth.”
In early 2018, he issued the single “My My My!,” which soon went platinum in Australia and entered the U.S. Top 100. Additional singles “Bloom” and the Ariana Grande-assisted “Dance to This” followed.
Tickets to Sivan’s Manila concert went on sale for the general public in January through SM Tickets outlets, smtickets.com. For more show information, follow MMI Live (in Facebook), and @mmilive (in Instagram, and Twitter), or visit www.mmilive.com for details.
