David Guetta turns Mall Of Asia Arena into one big dance party!

Party goers packed the Mall Of Asia arena last October 10, 2012 as the world’s number one DJ, David Guetta, rocked the dance floor with his chart-topping club beats. Just as he promised to in a recent article on Yahoo OMG, Guetta treated party philes from all walks of life to a “magical journey,” full of unforgettable dance hits, a trip that began at around 9 pm when concertgoers were treated to complimentary cups of Captain Morgan’s Original Spiced Rum before entering the venue. While holding the potent drink in their hands, people in the crowd began to bust their own moves, bop their head to the music, and sway their Styrofoam glow sticks in the air as Guetta’s special guest Australian singer and DJ Kaz James put the crowd in a party mood with his infectious beats. Alesso, an international EDM sensation who was personally chosen by Madonna as a support act for her tour, was Guetta’s second guest DJ. He played his tracks Years, Calling (Lose My Mind), and Every Chance We Get We Run.


Three years since the release of their last studio album and after endless gigging and touring, Chicosci is finally releasing their much-anticipated sixth album, This Is Not A Chicosci Record. The ever-so-dynamic rock group has been in the lab the past year, writing and recording new material with producer Eric Perlas of Tower of Doom Studios, and is set to make waves again with this new album under MCA Music Inc.

I must admit, when I heard that Indie-pop act Foster The People was going to Manila for a one-night show, I had my doubts. The three man band made up of vocalist/songwriter/guitarist/vocalist Mark Foster, bassist Cubbie Fink, and drummer Mark Pontious only had one hit to their name, the infectious and upbeat Pumped Up Kicks, which, in my mind, was certainly not enough to fill up the Araneta Coliseum.
