Of all the upcoming concerts in Manila, here’s one for dedicated K-Pop fans. All-male K-Pop group Bangtan Sonyeondan (BTS) is coming to Manila as a stop on their The Wings Tour. This isn’t the group’s first time here: they also played here in 2014, and twice in 2016. The group must like it here, as they’re playing not just one, but two nights this time around: May 6 and 7.

Indie-Go Music Festival

Upcoming concerts in manila

If you follow the local indie scene, you’re probably no stranger to the likes of Autotelic, Sud, Reese Lansangan, or NINNO. You may even have seen one of them at a gig somewhere. But this concert on May 20 brings them all together. These guys will be playing with several other acts, so that the concert is basically a round-up of the best local indie artists. Malaysian rock band An Honest Mistake will also be playing. Y/Y?

Britney Spears

Upcoming concerts in manila

Among the upcoming concerts in Manila, this one’s no secret. When this was announced, it almost sounded too good to be true. But THIS IS NOT A DRILL GUYS. The Holy Spearit is really actually truly coming to Manila, on June 15. We don’t know if this is part of the tour for her new album Glory, or something else entirely — but we do know it’s going to be nothing short of AMAZING. We’re having our diamante bodysuits made already.

Liam Gallagher of Oasis

Upcoming concerts in manila

If early ’90s Britpop and crass English quips are your jam, this is the concert for you. Oasis lead vocalist Liam Gallagher is playing in Manila on August 14, sans the rest of the band including his brother Noel, with whom he has an infamously strained relationship. So you’ve got no chance of seeing any Gallagher vs. Gallagher action live— but this is the guy who sang Wonderwall, so it’ll probably still be worth it.

Where: SM Mall of Asia Arena
Ticket Prices: VIP – PHP 9,190 Patron – PHP 8,140, Lower Box A – PHP 6,020, Lower Box B – PHP 4,970, Upper Box – PHP 3,910, General Admission – PHP 1,800

If these upcoming concerts in Manila prove anything it’s that yes, there is life after Coldplay. Our bank accounts may be dead by the end of the year, but at least our ears and our souls will be full of life, yes?
