Manila: A Must-stop (Or Not?) in Music Tours

A Must-stop: Manila has swiftly become a hub for global entertainment, securing its spot as a must-stop for major music tours. The city’s blend of rich culture, enthusiastic music fans, and world-class venues makes it an ideal location for international artists. For the band and music fans in Manila, it was more than an evening of songs—it was a celebration of Manila’s growing influence in the world of music.

Or not? HOWEVER (there is a reason this is all in caps), the country needs to face its traffic woes. The traffic situation entering and exiting the venue was at such an all-time high, and even Chris Martin sang a song about it during the concert. Yes, folks. We officially are ranked first in the world’s worst traffic.

Coldplay Live: Performance Like No Other

The Coldplay live concert experience offered an immersive spectacle that stood apart from any other live music event. Every song was a showcase of the band’s deep connection with their audience, as they delivered hit after hit with impeccable sound quality and emotional depth.
Philippine Arena was awash with innovative lighting (LED bracelets!) and visual effects (balloons! confetti! floating “planets!”), which complemented the band’s dynamic performance and created an otherworldly atmosphere. Fans were not merely spectators but active participants, singing along and swaying to the melodies. Coldplay’s ability to engage with their audience transformed the concert into an interactive journey, making every individual feel like a part of the show. Loved that homegrown bands Jikamarie (opening act) and Dilaw (they sang their hit song”Uhaw” with the band) got to participate. Also loved that Chris Martin sounded like your local konyo with his Taglish:
