10 More Concerts to Watch in 2014

Pencil these in and start saving because there’s a lot of music coming your way.

 

(SPOT.ph) If there's one thing in Manila that's worth the hubbub, it's the city's concert scene, and we absolutely have no complaints. Huge acts like Bruno Mars, Macklemore, T-Swift, 2NE1, and music festivals like Wanderland Music and Arts Fest are over, but there's always more in store. Just in case you don't have a complete idea of all the artists coming over to perform your favorite hits, we’ve got your back. Whatever genre floats your boat, here are 10 of the upcoming concerts for the second half of the year.

 

 

Bombay Bicycle Club

After experimenting with different genres, the four-man English band finally found their niche in indie rock. Their chart-topping success has earned them sold-out arenas and a solid fanbase.

Disclosure

They captured our hearts with "Latch," the sweet anthem for people who just can't get enough of love, both in its original EDM form and its swoon-worthy acoustic version. Dance, sing, and swoon some more with this British brother duo, Guy and Howard Lawrence, as they make their first-ever Manila gig on July 24, 9 p.m. at the World Trade Center.

Ticket Prices: P4,500 (VIP) and P2,800 (Gold)

Boyz II Men

Songs like "End of the Road" and "On Bended Knee" jumpstarted this R&B vocal group in the late ’90s. Once again, they have us dreaming about falling in love and reminiscing about heartbreak with their classic tunes and harmonious melody on September 17, 8 p.m. at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Shane Filan

Remember when "Swear it Again," "Flying Without Wings," and "If I Let You Go" (make that the entire Westlife album) were the songs on loop back in the day? Those were our ’90s anthems and, we daresay, were a big portion of the music that defined an era. Upon listening to them again now, we still can't help but sing along. Unfortunately, there's no reunion concert...yet. But we have the next best thing, and that is former band member, Shane Filan. His debut single from his second solo album, About You, carries familiar Westlife vibes along with Filan's take on alternative pop. He performs songs from his new album, as well as several of Westlife's greatest hits on October 1 at the World Trade Center, 8 p.m.

Sonic Carnival

This musical carnival will capture all your senses. No details yet but we've got word that it's happening on December 6. Last year, they brought in international act Steve Aoki to headline along with epic performances from UpDharmaDown and Urbandub. Sick beats from Deuce Manila, and DJs Ace Ramos, Katsy Lee, and Mars Miranda brought the house down and made it a huge dance party. We can't wait what's in store for this year's part two.
