MYXclusive: Filipino Fans Find Heaven By A1's Side!

Filipino fans kept their dreams alive of seeing Mark, Ben, and Christian live during A1's super nostalgic "Here We Come - Back" concert at the Kia Theatre last October 23!

The venue was packed with very loyal fans of the British-Norwegian boyband who exploded during the late 1990s. Most in attendance consider A1's songs a vital part of their growing up years.

During their press conference, the boyband expressed excitement about performing in the Philippines again. They even jammed with members of the press who where certified A1 fans!

VJ Ai fulfilled her own fangirl fantasy as she sat down with boys for a MYXclusive interview which Ben Adams found delightful!

She was also present at the concert which kicked off with "Same Old Brand New You"! The boys still got it as they easily hyped up the crowd with their performance of "Forever In Love", "Be The First To Believe", and "Summertime Of Our Lives" which they haven't sung live for 15 years!


True to the concert tour's name, A1 performed the hits from their breakout 1999 record Here We Come. Everyone got fired up as they busted out the signature dance steps of "Ready Or Not" and told the story behind "Everytime"!

Of course, A1 also launched into their 2000s hits from the albums Waiting For Daylight, Make It Good, and The A List!

The crowd sang along to every song until the end of the show so A1 gave love back to their fans by saying Mahal namin kayo!.

They even sang snippets of "If You Were My Girl" and "One Last Song" which were not official singles but became popular in the Philippines!

They also showed a throwback video featuring different fan encounters in Asia through the years while their song "Living The Dream" was playing! It was followed by "When I'm Missing You" and a very sentimental rendition of "Heaven By Your Side"!

The final moments of their concert drove the fans wild as Mark, Ben, and Christian performed their version of "Take On Me"!

The encore performance of A1 was brimming with so much love as Ben took the lead in singing "Like A Rose". The 34-year old heartthrob also handed out a rose to one lucky fan!

Ben thanked everyone for coming to the show and relentlessly supporting A1 since day one and beyond! He commended Manila for being an amazing crowd and said they can't wait to come back soon!

A1's next concert will be at IEC Pavilion in Cebu City on October 25! View more photos from the Manila leg HERE!
