Manila Concerts: Britney Spears over Coldplay?

A LOT OF COLDPLAY ticket holders announced on social media they are selling their Coldplay concert tickets the moment Wilbros announced on March 28 that Pop Icon Britney Spears is coming to Manila.

They’re choosing Britney over Coldplay and we can’t blame them.
Or maybe, just maybe, they’re not really Coldplay fans.

It’s Britney’s first concert in the Philippines so consider June 15, 2017 a holiday for her Filipino fans as they’d flock the Mall of Asia Arena.

Coldplay, presented by MMI Live on the other hand is scheduled to warm the hearts of their Filipino fans on Tuesday, April 4 at the Mall of Asia Concert Grounds. The band has just successfully finished their two-night concert at the National Stadium in Singapore yesterday, April 1.

In fact, a lot of our Filipino friends even headed to Singapore to catch the band in advance due to cheaper ticket prices in Singapore compared in Manila. There were around 50,000 people that attended each concert day in Singapore, and people are not but in full admiration of the show.

‘Coldplay’s A Head Full of Dreams’ concert tour is scheduled to hit stage in other Asian countries: Taiwan (April 12), Korea (April 15), and Japan (April 19).

Meanwhile, on April 5, Pinoy music lovers are treated to a concert once more with Fifth Harmony‘s 7/27 Tour via Smart Music Live.

‘Britney Spears Live in Manila’

Millions of her Pinoy fans can’t wait to have the multi-platinum, Grammy award-winning pop icon in the Philippines’ shores. The iconic pop sensation is one of the most successful and celebrated entertainers in pop history with nearly 150 million records worldwide.

Born in Mississippi and raised in Louisiana, Spears became a household name as a teenager when she released her first single “…Baby One More Time,” a Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 smash and international hit that broke sales records with more than 20 million copies sold worldwide and is currently 14x Platinum in the U.S.

Her musical career boasts countless awards and accolades, including six Billboard Music Awards and Billboard’s Millennium Award, which recognizes outstanding career achievements and influence in the music industry as well as an American Music Award and the 2011 MTV Video Vanguard Award. So far, Spears has earned a total of six No.1-debuting albums on the Billboard 200 chart and 22 top 40 hit singles on the Billboard Hot 100 — four of which went to No. 1. Spears has been nominated for eight Grammy Awards and won for Best Dance Recording in 2005.

Her cutting-edge pop concert Las Vegas residency, “Britney: Piece of Me,” at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino has been voted “Best Show in Las Vegas” and “Best Bachelorette Show in Las Vegas.” Spears has also been creating fragrances for over ten years, and currently has 21 fragrances available in over 85 countries around the world.

Tickets to her Manila concert will be on-sale beginning April 5 at 10am. You can book online at or call 470-2222. The ‘Britney Spears – Live in Manila‘ concert is presented by Bench and Wilbros Live.

Only if the money is not an issue, there’d be no need for Pinoys to choose only one from these two artists. I, for one, would love to watch them both.
