Supporters of local and international music scenes are thrilled with the comeback of live music events. Gigs around the metro featuring local artists are in their usual schedule and international acts are coming back to our country.
As the world’s largest indoor arena, the Philippine Arena at the Cuidad de Victoria, Bocaue, Bulacan hosts some of the biggest international acts performing in our country. This arena has a seating capacity of 50,000.
Just last December 2022, the K-Pop group SEVENTEEN awed 50,000 CARATs as they performed their second show in the Philippines for their Be The Sun world tour in the Philippine Arena.

Then last 25-26 March 2023, BLACKPINK returned and performed in the Philippines after their last concert in 2019. The two-night event in the Philippine Arena was sold-out by nearly 100,000 Pinoy BLINKS.

I also did not miss the chance to see one of my favorite international artists, Harry Styles came back to the country for his Love on Tour last 14 March 2023. It was my first indoor concert, and even though I was singing and sharing this moment with 30,000 other HARRIES, it felt intimate and special.
Be it a musical, a spiritual, or a sports event, it’s really a pleasure to share an experience with a crowd having the same enthusiasm for an interest and passion as you.
