The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines - Brace yourselves for the best of pop-rock music. Michael Johnson, Stephen Bishop, Joe Puerta of Ambrosia, Side A and The Angelos will be performing together in a once-in-a-lifetime show on Oct. 18 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum. Titled Back 2 Back 2 Back, the concert is a production of Viva Live, Inc. and Redstone Media Production.

Pinoys have been enamored of It Might Be You for three decades now and they are, therefore, also big fans of singer and songwriter Bishop, who created the song for the soundtrack of the movie Tootsie. Some of Bishop’s other big sellers are On And On, Something New In My Life, Say You Say Me and Separate Lives, from the film White Nights, which won the Academy Award for Best Song.

Johnson’s distinctive vocals and mastery of the guitar resulted in some of the biggest hits of the ’70s. Bluer Than Blue, I’ll Always Love You, Give Me Wing, This Night Won’t Last Forever and Almost Like Being In Love remain big favorites among local fans to this day.

Joe Puerta is the bassist and vocalist of the famous Ambrosia. Generally acknowledged as one of the greatest pop-rock bands of all time, Ambrosia was responsible for the big hits Holding On To Yesterday, How Much I Feel, Biggest Part Of Me, You’re The Only Woman and I Just Can’t Let Go.

Side A is one of the greatest Filipino groups of all time. It is made up of Joey Generoso, Naldy Gonzales, Ernie Severino, Lee Von Cailao and Ned Esguerra.  It is best known for its party music and the soulful vocals of Generoso. Among its biggest hits are Hold On, Tuloy Pa Rin Ako, Aawitin Ko Na Lang, Tell Me, So Many Questions, Forevermore, By Your Side and others.

Tickets are now available at Ticketnet 911-5555 and Viva Concerts 687-7236. Ticket prices are Patron A P3,500; Patron B P3,000; Lower Box P3,000; Upper Box A P1,750; Upper Box B P750; and General Admission P400.

Bishop, Johnson, Puerta and Side A will also be at the University of Southeastern Philippines in Davao City on Oct. 26.
