So far, 2017 has been a great year for concerts in the Philippines as promoters have just bombarded us with announcement after announcement. While we're stoked that we've been able to see many of our favorite artists perform live, there are still more that we're just dying to tick off of our concert bucket list! Here is Chalk's dream lineup of concerts for the rest of 2017!
They were the baby faces of the '90's and time just can't erase our love for this brotherly trio. Aside from their "MMMBop"-worthy tunes, new and old, we don't mind seeing Isaac, Taylor, and Zac in the flesh again. They're like fine wine that just becomes even more delish the more they age! Don't get us wrong, we know they're more than just pretty faces, too. Just imagine how their concert would be like, bagets and titas alike screaming their ovaries out just imagining the MMMHot brothers singing "I just want to be by your side" on stage! *chorus panty drop*
With rumors surrounding a Para-Thrilla in Manila III concert by the end of the year, the Parawhore in all of us is screaming with full-on joy and crying rainbow tears. The After Laughter era might be a change from their previous albums with its pop-heavy sound, but seeing Queen Hayley Williams sing and have fun onstage will still be the highlight of every fans' year.
With the band announcing tour stops in Asia (with stops in Japan, South Korea, Thailand, and Singapore) after a brief hiatus, we can't help but wish that they'd somehow end up on our shores. While many fans have already booked their trips to see them on those dates, there's still a part of us hoping they'd eventually set a date to visit the Philippines!
Two years ago, this lone dreamboat first performed in Manila with his bandmates from (in hiatus) One Direction. With the release of his first self-titled solo album and tour dates and venues announced in Southeast Asia, we're crossing our fingers for Manila to be put on the Harry Styles map! PLEASE COME TO THE PHILIPPINES!
Little Monsters, put your paws up if you're also hoping for a comeback! When Lady Gaga first visited the Philippines, the concert was bombarded with protests that might've jeopardized Lady Gaga's future concert plans in the country, but with her Joanne reinvention, she might just give us another chance. We want to hear the new Philippine national anthem, "Million Reasons," live!
This may not be their first concert in the Philippines, but they always leave us wanting more every single time! The Script won the hearts of Filipinos everywhere because we just love us some feels—and they give us just that and more! Imagine a crowd singing in chorus a song meant for heartbroken people, you'll just want to bawl and hug the person next to you—even a stranger. *sparks*
There are never enough concerts for everyone. Shut up, take our money, and make all this happen!
