A1 will perform at the Kia Theater on October 23 and at the IEC Pavilion in Cebu City on October 25, 2016. The band is behind the hit songs "Everytime," "Like a Rose" and "Heaven by Your Side."

A1 fell in love with the Philippines upon their very first visit. Now, four years since their last appearance, A1 are heading back to the Philippines for their Here We Come-Back! Tour.

This two-night show scheduled for Manila and Cebu is dedicated for their loyal Pinoy fans who have remained in close contact with the band via their social media accounts.

A1, the British-Norwegian band, is composed of Ben Adams, Mark Read and Christian Ingebrigtsen. They had their first breakthrough in the U.K. in 1999 with a collection of hit singles taken from their debut album.

They went on to have many international Top 10 and No. 1 hits including "Caught in The Middle," "Same Old Brand New You", their cover of the A-Ha classic "Take On Me," "Everytime," "Like a Rose" and "Heaven by Your Side," to name a few.

A1 also achieved massive success in the UK, Europe and across Asia, including a Brit Award for Best British Breakthrough Act in 2001 and with 5 studio albums and a greatest hits, they have totted up over 10 million record sales worldwide.

Originally a quartet, A1 enjoyed considerable success from late 1990s to early 2000s that they decided to get together seven years after their split to compete in the competition to represent Norway for “2010 Eurovision Song Contest” with Don’t Wanna Lose You Again.

In February 2012, A1 performed with Blue and Jeff Timmons of 98 Degrees in The Greatest Hits Tour, which took them to Singapore, Philippines and Indonesia. They loved their two-week stay and charity work here that they held a benefit show in November for underprivileged kids of Cebu.

The following year, A1 appeared in the TV documentary The Big Reunion along with Blue, Five, Damage, 3T, 911, Girl Thing and 5th Story and went on a UK tour.

The boys also worked on their album and released “Waiting for Daylight” and “Rediscovered” in UK last June 2015. Their comeback concert this year will kick off on October 22 in Singapore.
