LANY in Manila
This humble band from Los Angeles literally shook the entire Philippines when they finally announced the Manila stop for their Malibu Nights World Tour this year.

On the day of ticketing last February 21, SM Tickets’ site was inaccessible due to the thousands of people trying to score tickets online. Tickets undoubtedly sold out immediately, which left a lot of fans disheartened. But lucky for us Filipino fans, the group added another day. It’s a date on July 24 and 25, so fans better prepare their hearts for an unforgettable two-day concert.
