Teen heartthrob Sam Concepcion will open the much-awaited Taylor Swift Live in Manila concert on February 19 at the Araneta Coliseum.
According to concert producer Renen De Guia of Ovation Productions, "Taylor selects everything for her concerts, so we are very happy and excited that she chose Sam Concepcion to front for her in Manila. In fact, Sam was also asked to join Taylor in the rest of her Asian tour."
He pointed out, "I submitted some names and I gave them some links then they said that they chose Sam."
Renen also revealed that Taylor will perform for one hour and 30 minutes during the said concert.
Sam will perform an explosive song-and-dance number.
"I would have wanted just to watch Taylor's show, but to actually open for her, it's a big surprise and blessing," says Sam of his participation in the concert of the international singing sensation. "I am also very humbled that I was invited to join her Asian tour. I am very thankful, excited and thrilled."
