Get ready to have your simple world turned upside down as the band that gave you the hit song "Welcome to My Life", "Untitled" and "Perfect" once again rocks Manila. DAYLY Entertainment and Midas Promotions proudly brings: Simple Plan Live in Manila for the Get Your Heart On! Tour.
This Canadian pop punk band from Montréal, Quebec entered the pop punk rock scene in 1999. High school friends Charles-Andre "Chuck" Comeau, Jean-Francois "Jeff" Stinco and Sebastian Lefebvre got together to form Simple Plan. Comeau met former Reset bandmate Pierre Bouvier at a Sugar Ray concert, and soon after Bouvier left Reset to join Simple Plan. David Desroriers joined the band and replaced Bouvier on bass, allowing Bouvier to concentrate on the singing.
They released their first studio album, No Pads, No Helmets...Just Balls in 2002, with twelve tracks including the hit "Perfect", creating a mark on the pop punk rock scene. This was followed by Still Not Getting Any in 2004 with singles "Welcome to My Life", "Shut Up!, "Untitled", "Crazy" and "Perfect World". According to the band, on this album, they wanted to explore a more "versatile" sound, still good music but not limited to the punk rock genre.
After touring for more than a year and performing for their massive music fan base, Simple Plan took some time off in 2006 to work on their 3rd album, working with producer Dave Fortman. On October 29, 2006 they released their self titled album Simple Plan with "When I'm Gone" as the carrier single peaking at number 26 on the UK charts, giving them their highest charting single in the UK. Simple Plan's music has now achieved global status and has earned them numerous nominations and several wins at different music awards.
Not just your average rock stars, Simple Plan has also shown their philanthropic side by donating to many non profit and advocacy groups like MTV Asia Aid Benefit, MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving), RADD (Recording Artists and Athletes against Drunk Driving) and Make-A Wish Foundation. Afterwards they created the Simple Plan Foundation, a foundation that focuses on teen problems.
Simple Plan also made a mark in Hollywood by having several of their songs featured in the movies Scooby Doo and Scooby Doo 2. They also appeared in the 2004 film New York Minute. The band garnered considerable worldwide recognition and their name has become a staple to many teenagers and young adults' music playlists.
To promote their 4th album Get Your Heart On!, which features collaboration with several artists like Weezer's Rivers Cuomo, Natasha Bedingfield, K'naan and All Time Low's Alex Gaskarth, Simple Plan embarks on their Get Your Heart On tour. “Jet Lag” feat. Natasha Bedingfield for the English version and Marie-Mai for the French version is the album's first single and has gained significant airplay worldwide.
The band has visited Manila first in March 2005, performing together with Avril Lavigne. Leaving their local fans wanting for more, they came back in August 2008 with New Found Glory and Jamie Scott. Now, Simple Plan will once again bring some punk rock induced energy into Manila on January 12, 2012 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
