Boyce Avenue brings back the kilig just in time for Valentine’s Week
In time for Valentine’s week, Boyce Avenue returned to the Philippines to serenade their fans. It happened on February 11 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
Boyce Avenue is a band based in Florida formed in 2004. The band is composed of Alejandro (lead vocals, guitar, piano), Fabian (guitar, vocals), and Daniel (bass, percussion, vocals). They were also dubbed as the “Three Manzano Brothers.”
The trio is known to cover songs from famous artists. Yet, they opened the Araneta Coliseum with their original composition titled “Hear Me Now.” They followed it with their song “Bad Habits.”
They then serenaded fans with The Police’s “Every Breath You Take.” Their song “Cinderella” came afterwards.
Fans sang to Natalie Imburglia’s “Torn” and Ed Sheeran’s “Castle On The Hill.”
Boyce Avenue then performed Ben E. King’s “Stand By Me” and was followed by their composition titled “Imperfect Me.” They also covered Christina Perri’s “A Thousand Years” and James Arthur’s “Say You Won’t Let Go” before singing their original “I’ll Be The One.”
The crowd screamed as they hear the intro to Tracy Chapman’s “Fast Car.” The concert goers continued to sing along as they played Coldplay’s concert anthem “Yellow.”
The climax of their show provided a vivid spectrum of sounds from world-class artists. They softly swept everyone’s emotion in the Big Dome with hits such as Adele’s “Easy On Me,” The Weekend’s “Blinding Lights,” Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling In Love,” Tom Petty and John Mayer’s “Free Fallin’,” Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect,” and The Righteous Brothers’ “Unchained Melody.”
Boyce Avenue kept on impressing their fans through their originals titled “Be Somebody” and “Anchored.”
Filipino fans can’t get enough of the Manzano Brothers that they asked for an encore. The boys did not fail to forget the classic such as they sing Oasis’ “Wonderwall” and Goo Goo Dolls’ “Iris.”
Apart from their Manila tour, Boyce Avenue also shared love notes to Cebu and Davao through their songs.
Fresh hitmakers such as Adie, Nobita, and The Juans are also in attendance to open the event with their heartbreaking tunes.
The band’s humble beginnings started with their cover videos on YouTube which became an avenue for their viral stardom. Their set has a total 21 songs, which combines great cover songs and their own.
Boyce Avenue Live in Manila was brought to the Philippines by its promoter Wilbros Live.
