Philippine Concerts to Look Forward to in 2022 (Fingers Crossed!)
by: The Beat Asia
These dates are subject to change due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
How is it that it seemed only recently when the country first went on lockdown, yet now we're more than halfway through 2021? The COVID-19 pandemic has thrown a wrench into our plans, affecting arranged trips, weddings, holiday celebrations, as well as live performances, much to concertgoers' dismay.
On the bright side, concerts aren't completely dashed in the country, with some just moved to a later date. Be patient and make it through the year. Here are three Philippine concerts happening in 2022 that you can look forward to attending (fingers crossed!)
Alanis Morissette 2022 World Tour
Alanis Morissette fans, rejoice! The seven-time Grammy winner was supposed to grace the stage of the Mall of Asia Arena back in April 2020, but like many concerts happening then, her performance was rescheduled not just once, but twice. The 'Ironic' singer's World Tour concert has now been moved to Nov. 18 and 19, 2022, which by then would be the 27th year of her breakthrough album 'Jagged Little Pill' that shot her to stardom in June 1995.
General admission tickets are up for grabs for P2,870, whereas patron to SVIP tickets will set you back around P10,280 to P13,460. For more information regarding ticket prices, go here.
Location: Mall of Asia Arena, Pasay City
Avril Lavigne Head Above Water World Tour
The Manila leg of Avril Lavigne's world tour was supposed to take place in May 2020, but has now been rescheduled to take place on May 2, 2022, at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City.
The pop punk sensation’s world tour is for her sixth studio album, 'Head Above Water,' which was released in early 2019. This would mark the ‘Complicated’ singer’s fifth concert in the country, having first performed in Manila in April 2005 for her Bonez Tour. Tickets are on sale, with level 7 tickets around the ballpark figure of P1,000 and level 1 price tickets at P8,295. For more information, go here.
Location: Smart Araneta Coliseum, Cubao, Quezon City
Boys Like Girls
If, like many younger Millennials, "Thunder" had been your anthem in high school, then you'll be glad to know that the Boys Like Girls’ Manila concert is still pushing through. Originally scheduled on April 15 and 16, 2020, the concert has now been moved to Oct. 10 and 11, 2022, at the New Frontier Theater. Meanwhile, their concert in Sky Hall Seaside Cebu has been moved to Oct. 12, 2022. Tickets go as low as P2,415 and up to P4,200 for their Manila concert, whereas tickets for their Cebu concert start at P2,650 for general admission and P3,710 for VIP.
Location: New Frontier Theater in Araneta City, Cubao, Quezon City and Sky Hall Seaside Cebu, SM Seaside City, Cebu.
