After their successful Manila concert last year, British pop band The Vamps will return to the Philippines for a Manila concert this 2016.
3LOGYINMANILA: The Vamps, Before You Exit and The Tide concert is scheduled to take place on January 30, 2016 at the Mall of Asia Arena.
Organized by MMI Live, The Vamps will headline the concert along with American pop guitar band Before You Exit and their special guest, The Tide.
THE VAMPS. This is the second time the British boy band will visit the country after they rocked the stage of MOA Arena in February 2015.
Composed of Brad Simpson (lead vocals and guitar), James McVey (lead guitar and vocals), Connor Ball (bass guitar and vocals) and Tristan Evans (drums and vocals), The Vamps is currently promoting their second studio album Wake Up, which was released last October 2015.
"Wake Up," "Rest Your Love," and "Cheater" are the first three singles of their new album.
BEFORE YOU EXIT. Before You Exit--composed of brothers Connor, Riler, and Toby McDonnough--marks their third visit to the Philippines via the 3LOGYinMANILA concert.
The band's first visit was in 2013 for the Circuit Music Fest. This was followed by their Dangerous Concert Tour in 2014.
To date, the band has released three extended play albums: A Short Story Long (2009), Letting Go (2011), and I Like That (2013). Their latest single titled "Model" was released last July 2015.
THE TIDE. This is the first time The Tide will visit the Philippines. The Los Angeles-based four-man band is composed of Levi Jones, Austin Corini, Drew Dirksen, and Nate Parker. The Tide is the supporting act of The Vamps and Before You Exit for their European tours.
The group was initially known for uploading cover songs of chart-topping hits on YouTube. Some of their popular covers are 5 Seconds of Summer's "She Looks So Perfect," "One Direction's "Steal My Girl," and Shawn Mendez's "Stitches," among others.
The band has yet to release an album but they have already uploaded original compositions on Youtube. "Falling in Love Tonight" is one of their most popular original songs.
FRONT ACTS. Jayda Avanzado, the daughter of Dingdong Avanzano and Jessa Zaragosa, will serve as the front act for the concert as well as the Australian-based singer-songwriter William Singe.
In an interview with Lhar Santiago for GMA News last July 2015, Jayda along with her parents announced that she will be officially joining the music industry. Before making her own mark in the music scene, Jayda was featured on her dad Dingdong's single titled "Daddy's Day" from the album Download.
Meanwhile, William Single is a 23-year-old singer-songwriter who was previously part of the Australian pop boy band The Collective along with Trent Bell, Julian De Vizio, Zach Russell, and Jayden Sierra.
The band was formed in 2012 for The X Factor Australia Season 3 and finished third-place in the said talent competition.
On February 2015, the Australian singer officially announced his departure from the group through his Facebook account. Currently, William is known for doing cover songs on YouTube.
