The show is called Open Hearts Eve Part Two in Manila and will be held on Jan. 25, 6:30 p.m., at the New Frontier Theater, Araneta City, Cubao, Quezon City. This marks Tiffany’s first concert in the Philippines since becoming a solo artist in 2016.

In 2016, Ms. Young released her debut album, I Just Wanna Dance, that peaked at number three on the Billboard World Albums Chart. She is currently promoting her new digital single, “Run For Your life.” After shows in Seoul and Bangkok, Manila is one of the next stops on her Asia tour.

Tiny Moving Parts returns to Manila
AFTER THEIR memorable first show in the Philippines in 2018, Minnesota-based band Tiny Moving Parts is coming back to Manila with fresh tunes. PULP Live World and Skesh Entertainment present Tiny Moving Parts Live in Manila 2020, to be held on Feb. 9 at the Skydome, SM City North EDSA, Quezon City. Newly signed by Hopeless Records, the trio (composed of brothers Matt and Billy Chevalier, and their cousin Dylan Mattheisen) have just released a new album, breathe, bringing its total to five full-length albums into a career that’s lasted for over a decade now. “This record covers things we’ve talked about in the past — the fear of dying, losing someone through moving away or the passing of someone — but it concentrates more on the positives, and being happy things happened instead of sad they’re taken away,” shares vocalist/guitarist Dylan Mattheisen in a press release. “It’s about finding that mindset to keep on powering through.” The new album was written on the road, in between tours in support of the previous record, Swell, which came out January 2018. The new album has the same emotionally-driven blend of math-rock, pop-punk, and emo, but expands their sound. “We’re not trying to do anything, we’re just playing music. And if they label us, they label us. It’s not like it bothers us. They’re gonna call us something,” drummer Billy Chevalier told PULP Magazine in an exclusive interview, reflecting on how their music is described by the public. “We always want to keep it interesting and keep it different, unique,” Dylan Mattheisen added. “We love sing-along parts, but we also live chaotic craziness, so it’s just trying to find a blend of what we all love about music… whatever feels right, we do it.” Last year’s Manila gig, also powered by PULP Live World, was the biggest show of the band’s entire 2018 Asia Tour, and fans can look forward to an even bigger show when they return. Gates open at 6 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are available at all SM Tickets outlets nationwide or via www.smtickets.com. Tickets are priced at P1,500 plus ticketing charges.
Japanese pop rock band at the Big Dome
PRESENTED by PULP Live World, One OK Rock Eye of the Storm Asia Tour 2020 Live in Manila will be held on May 2 at the Araneta Coliseum in Cubao, Quezon City. The Japanese rock group — composed of Taka, Toru, Ryota, and Tomoya — released its latest album, Eye of the Storm, in February 2019. The album features a side of the band that remains ambitious and hungry, eager to build on an exploration of sounds and styles. “Rather than it feeling like [other] albums we made, it feels like an extension of what we have been doing. And the fans, they have responded back — existing and new fans alike,” the members said in an exclusive interview with PULP Magazine. “After all these years we are continuously evolving, taking a new shape. That’s Rock n Roll and that’s One OK Rock!” The Japanese quartet has put out many albums throughout a career that has run for about 15 years now, but in recent years, they have exploded in the US, in Europe, and throughout Asia. The Manila concert is presented by AEG Presents and PULP Live World. Gates open at 6 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are on sale at all TicketNet outlets and online via www.ticketnet.com.ph. Prices range in price from P2,800 to P8,500.
