The Mall of Asia Arena, world-class venue for the world-class Filipino talents finally held its Grand Launch via a music event entitled “ICONS at the Mall of Asia Arena” last Saturday, June 16, 2012.
Gracing the red carpet at this once-in-a-lifetime concert are some of the biggest names in the Philippine music industry from various generations including Lea Salonga, Gary Valenciano, Martin Nievera, Jose Mari Chan, Ogie Alcasid, Regine Velasquez, Basil Valdez, Freddie Aguilar, Christian Bautista, Erik Santos, Juris, Jed Madela, Piolo Pascual, Bamboo, Arnel Pineda, and the singing group, The Company.
The ABS-CBN Philharmonic Orchestra is the newest, most exciting addition to the top artists of the Kapamilya Network. It is comprised of arguably the best crossover musicians of the country who can perform all types and genres of music. Maestro Ryan Cayabyab never fails to impress me! He led the Orchestra in front of around 20 thousand OPM Lovers!
The Mall of Asia Arena is a celebration of the achievements and glory of the “World Class Filipino”, who never gives up in his dreams and the achievement of excellence. With its 20,000 full seating capacity, Corporate Suites, VIP-level services and amenities, and a vast offering of food and merchandise, the MoA Arena is posed to become the country’s premier entertainment venue.
Sporting enthusiasts will have reason to cheer as they watch the opening of the UAAP Diamond Season on July 14 and NBA All-Star Basketball Challenge on July 18 at the MOA Arena. Hot on the heels of the successful Lady Gaga concert will be Nicki Minaj’s Pink Friday Tour on July 11.
Other events Filipinos can look forward to in the MoA Arena are the return of Cirque du Soleil with Saltimbanco from August 8 to 19 , the Yahoo OMG Awards 2012 on July 6 and the E-Plus Teen Assembly on August 1.
