After a successful concert in Doha last last September 29, Charice together with David Foster and other international singers will once again grace the concert stage in Araneta Coliseum for the second time.

Last year, ‘David Foster and Friends’ concert was held in Araneta. It was also the first time that Charice performed together with other international singers here in the Philippines, and together with her were Natalie Cole, Ruben Studdard, Peter Cetera, Canadian Tenors.

Now, for the second time, Charice will be performing with another lineup of international singers. ‘David Foster and Friends’ Asian Tour Live in Manila 2011 has a roster of great singers like Russell Watson, Philip Bailey, and Michael Bolton.

The Filipina singing sensation seems to have several concerts aligned for her this month of October as she will be touring some of the cities in Asia together with David Foster and other international singers who are included in the concert tour.

The concert tour is entitled “David Foster and Friends Asian Tour 2011.” The concert tour will be held in the following cities: Tokyo, Japan (October 19-20); Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (October 22); Quezon City, Philippines (October 25); Jakarta, Indonesia (October 28); Bangkok, Thailand (October 31); and Singapore, Singapore (November 3).

Meanwhile, Charice will once again make her fellow Filipinos proud of her with another expected outstanding performance on stage this coming concert tour in Manila.

Westlife, Gravity Tour 2011

Gravity Tour 2011 is Westlife’s latest world concert tour and Philippines is one of the band’s favorite places to hold their concert. In fact, it’s already their fourth visit here in the Philippines. The first ever Westlife concert was held 11 years ago.

In a press conference held last Thursday, hours before the Gravity Tour 2011 concert, Kian said, “We come to the Philippines and we get a response like this after many years… maybe we’re doing something right”

Feehily further added saying that the connection they have with their Filipino fans is a “magical experience.”

The Westlife concert held yesterday, September 29, 2011 was a complete blast. The said concert took place at Araneta Coliseum where thousands of screaming fans cheered for their all-time favorite Irish band. The group is composed of Nicky Byrne, Shane Filan, Kian Egan, and Mark Feehily.

Meanwhile, one of the Westlife members is a self-confessed Manny Pacquiao fan. In a Skype interview by GMA 7 with Westlife member Nicky Byrne, weeks before the concert, he said, “I’m probably the biggest Pacquiao fan out of all the Westlife boys.”

“When I found out we were going to the Philippines, I would love to meet Manny Pacquiao, and maybe do a duet.”

“I thought one day I could maybe interview him, meet him, get a photograph with him, do some boxing with him.”

Surely, Byrne is one of Manny Pacquiao’s biggest fans. In his tweeter account @nickbyrneoffic, he tweeted, “I would be grateful to just shake Manny’s hand.”
