Liwanags are finally getting what they’ve been asking for.
One of the hottest OPM bands, Ben&Ben, finally announced the date of their upcoming concert. They haven’t shared many details, but it’s assumed to be another sold-out gig for the folk band of nine members.
The band went by “The Benjamins” before changing their name to Ben&Ben. They got together in 2015 and have since been topping charts nationwide. Their most popular hits include “Araw-Araw” and “Pagtingin.” Those are only two of the many songs Filipinos have fallen in love with. They’ve gone busking and held concerts, but this upcoming show will be very different.
Ovation Productions revealed the concert will be on September 3 at the CCP Open Grounds. The production company puts on events for many artists. Some have called it a “promoter of some of the world’s biggest names in live entertainment.” Those names include artists like Justin Bieber. In fact, Bieber is set to perform at the same venue as Ben&Ben in October. (If he gets better by then, that is.)
“The band is 2020 and 2021’s most-streamed Filipino artist on Spotify with over 1.2 billion streams. Finally promoting a Filipino artist is a much-awaited first for Ovation Productions.” Ovation Productions said in a Facebook post.
Ben&Ben made announcements about their preparations for their first-ever world tour. They’ll be performing around several cities in the US and Canada. Liwanags have expressed their need to watch their send-away concert in September.
Ticket prices and other details have yet to be released by the band or Ovation Productions. But rest assured that FreebieMNL will keep you posted on any updates that come up.
