MANILA, Philippines — Grammy-winning Icelandic-Chinese singer-songwriter Laufey will be visiting the Philippines twice within a matter of months this 2024.

The Philippines is included in the Asia and Australia leg of her upcoming "Bewitched: The Goddess" tour, where she will be performing in Mall of Asia Arena on September 2.

Manila is her penultimate stop in Asia as Laufey will then head to Singapore before three concerts dates in Australia.

Presented by Live Nation Philippines, the concert is on top of her two "A Night At The Symphony" performances alongside the Manila Philharmonic Orchestra on May 28 and 29 at the PICC Plenary Hall, however the new addition will be her first arena headliner in the country.

The "A Night At The Symphony" shows in Manila, which sold out almost immediately, will be the third time Laufey performs live with a full orchestra having done so in Los Angeles and Iceland.

She visited the Philippines last year, bringing her first-ever Asia Tour to the Filinvest Tent in Alabang, Muntinlupa.

After performing as a cello soloist for the Iceland Symphony Orchestra when she was 15 years old, Laufey was a finalist on "Ísland Got Talent" and a semifinalist on "The Voice Iceland."

She graduated with a presidential scholarship from the Berklee College of Music in 2021, releasing her debut extended play "Typical of Me" the same year featuring "Street by Street," "Like the Movies," and a cover of "I Wish You Love."

Laufey has since followed it up with three more extended plays and two albums, the latter "Bewitched" winning Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album at the 2024 Grammy Awards.
