Whether or not this year did us well or otherwise, we cannot hide the fact that the coming year is already keeping us all excited on our toes! Nothing’s more thrilling than the prospect of yet another beginning for us all.  As if to celebrate this new beginning, the first quarter of 2017 already promises us one swell of a good time with the 2017 concerts in Manila that are all lined up for us to enjoy! It’s not even the new year yet, but it is already looking to be a smashing one!

Electronic music is the way it is today with the help of this genius superstar DJ. Starting the 2017 concerts rundown with a party is no less than DJ and producer David Guetta! Yep, this is one of the world’s biggest DJs who brought us the hits “Titanium,” “Without You” and “Every Chance We Get We Run.” These, along with a multitude of other, have become the anthems of our parties for more than a decade now.

We’re hyped and excited! Nobody should miss the first big part of the year especially that this concert promises of fresh new sounds from David Guetta which included his latest single featuring Zara Larsson called “This One’s For You.” See you there?

2Yellowcard (February 10, 2017)

Raise your hands if you ever put your speakers up to maximum volume and rocked out in your bedroom singing “IF I COULD FIND YOU NOOOOOOW, THINGS WOULD GET BETTERRRRRR!!!!.” These tickets are golden especially to us kids whose teenage angst were accompanied by pop-punk songs like “Ocean Avenue” and “Only One.”

Yellowcard is hitting Manila’s 2017 concerts scene with a show on an extremely bittersweet note. We are lucky to be included in their final world tour. And though this concrete and heartbreaking changing of times may be a little dim for the start of the year, we’re still equally excited for this one last show with Yellowcard.

3Goo Goo Dolls (February 11, 2017)

We don’t know about you, but to us, 2017 is looking a whole lot like the ’90s and the early ’00s. And we’re hoping the younger ones are as hyped about these classic bands coming to the country! As if Yellowcard isn’t enough of a reminder of our younger days, Goo Goo Dolls is also set to perform live in Manila. Don’t worry, they’re not disbanding. But that does not give us any reason to miss it. Imagine singing along to “Iris,” “Slide” or “Black Balloon” like we’re all back in high school. That should be fun, right?

These 2017 concerts are definitely putting us ‘90s kids in a complete twilight zone! The Moffatts is coming back to the Philippines, and we’re feeling too many feelings all over! The band gained success the teeny love songs that rang within our bedroom walls.

This band or brothers had already disbanded in 2001, pursuing their own careers in music. Back in 2012, they decided to reunite. To give us one last bite and one last kilig, The Moffatts is hitting Manila with a concert for their farewell tour before they fully pursue their own musical careers. Yep, we’ll be there because we’ll definitely miss them like crazy.

wanderland 2017

It was in 2013 when Wanderland crafted for us what was then to become one of the biggest music festivals in our country.

Over the past years, they have brought us international acts such as The Temper Trap, Death Cab for Cutie, and Bon Iver who played on the same stage as our own local musical geniuses like Franco, Techy Romantics, and Up Dharma Down.

This year promises nothing less. Already on the lineup are the international acts LANY, Explosions in the Sky, HONNE, and Woodlock. The local lineup is headed by Gab and John of Urbandub, Up Dharma Down, Tom’s Story, and Reese Lansangan. This is just half of what’s about to come. We cannot wait.

7Coldplay (April 4, 2017 – SOLD OUT)

We waited years for this one. The anticipation for this band to finally play for the Filipino crowd was unmatched. The teasers stretched our hope to the brim. Finally, they announced it. Coldplay is coming to Manila in 2017!

This British alternative rock band almost needs no introduction. Coldplay brought us the most moving anthems of our generation. Their songs have become the soundtrack to our lives’ highs and lows. Just imagining how it would be like to hear them live for the very first time brings chills down our spines. Nevermind that Coldplay ticket prices cost us an arm and both our legs, we knew we had to be there and so will we be! It hasn’t even happened yet, and we already know that this is going to be the highlight of our 2017!
