After a series of major sold-out shows at the Smart Araneta Coliseum – from LANY, the indie pop band that whipped 18,000 fans into frenzy two nights in a row in April; and local superstar Sarah Geronimo, whose most recent show at the Big Dome just became the biggest Filipino concert in the hallowed iconic venue – music fans are excited about their upcoming favorite acts set to perform in the country.
Boyce will be (our fave) boys
One June 1, expect the Big Dome to become a giant sing-along venue with perennial Pinoy faves Boyce Avenue returning to the country and performing at the Coliseum anew. With guest Moira, who herself had recently sold out two nights at the neighboring Kia Theatre, expect a bevy of hits everyone knows and loves.
The Florida-based Manzano brothers – Alejandro (lead vocals, guitars, piano), Fabian (guitar, vocals), and Daniel (bass, percussions, vocals) – have over 3 billion YouTube views and more than 10 million subscribers, as well as a passionate digital fan base of over 3 million on Facebook and half a million on Twitter, gave them a major career outside the confines of their video cameras and beyond their uploads.

Marking their amazing 20-year musical journey, hitmakers Aegis finally conquers the Smart Araneta Coliseum – a definite career milestone for any local act – on July 13. Dubbed “Aegis 20ble Dekada: Ang Soundtrack ng Buhay Mo,” fans can expect an evening of hugot feels and birit treats with songs that resonate with their lives. Think “Luha,” “Halik,” and “Basang-basa Sa Ulan,” among others.
