There are many things to be excited about this 2020, but one in particular more than most!
And that’s all the upcoming concerts happening in Manila this 2020! As most of you know, the Philippines is a small archipelago in South East Asia—and for most international artists is a country that is not as profitable to visit for concert tours, unlike other first-world countries. And so as Filipinos, it is always a treat to watch the concerts of international artists right here in Manila.
So today, on the second day of the year, we want you to get pumped at the prospect of seeing these artists live on stage this 2020! So here’s a list of all the upcoming concerts happening in Manila this 2020!
