Lawson is coming to Manila, ending speculation of such tickling possibility and turning it into a fan frenzy that promises a beautiful mayhem once the group meets their Filipino fans face-to-face.
The group is confirmed to arrive here on April 7, wherein two days after, they're scheduled to perform a much-anticipated gig at the Eastwood Mall Open Park in Libis, Quezon City. The venue may be intimate, but a heavy crowd of delirious fans are expected to flock the venue.
"It shall be a dream come true to do a couple of shows there. We want to go to as many places as we can and we heard Philippines is a very good scene music-wise," said 22-year old lead guitarist Joel Peat.
Now, the dream for their multitude of young Filipino fans will finally become a reality.
The "especially for Filipino fans" show happens on April 9 @ 7PM. The date is known locally as "Araw Ng Kagitingan" which commemorates the sacrifices of Filipino and American soldiers who fought for the country and suffered in the infamous "Death March" at the hands of enemy soldiers during the darkest days of World War II.
For Lawson fans here in the Philippines, that day can also mean a moment when they will be able to meet their heroes in flesh, alive and giving melodic music that inspires the heart and rocks the soul.
Lawson, its name paying tribute to a real-life doctor who saved the life of their vocalist Andy Brown from death scare, scored hit singles recently, namely, "When She Was Mine," (which immediately became high-rated on YouTube in just a week after being posted) "Taking Over Me," and "Standing In The Dark."
Completing the band roster are bassist Ryan Fletcher, who has been jamming with Joel since they were 14, and drummer Adam Pitts.
On that special April night, the air will be filled with great music and admirable rockers collectively called Lawson.
