What do you do after performing and making timeless hit songs for 30 years? You continue on performing and making timeless hit songs. And that is Martin Nievera. We all have grown to love his unforgettable classics “Forever”, “Be My Lady”, “You Are My Song” and more. It’s been quite a while since 1983 during his first concert at the Folk Arts Theater, but this year he celebrates 30 years being the incredible singer that he is.

Having 18 platinum, 5 double platinum, 3 triple platinum and 1 quadruple platinum albums in his entire career, Martin shows no signs of stopping. He has dedicated his life entertaining and serenading the people through his love songs.

On September 13 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum, Martin Nievera marks the 30th year of his singing career by giving you a throwback of what Martin is really made of. No fancy visual production, just pure Martin Nievera and his world class talent like the way it always has been, with the help of the ABS-CBN Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Gerard Salonga and the musical direction of Louie Ocampo. In addition to this major concert, Martin has also released a new album under PolyEast Records entitled, MARTIN NIEVERA 3D: Tatlong Dekada. The album comes with a CD with new songs to fall in love to and a DVD with music videos.

After our very amusing roundtable interview with the Concert King, he had delightfully signed ALL of our 3D albums also telling us that he ALWAYS tries to meet all of his fans and makes sure that no one gets left behind. Also told us his unfortunate story of wanting to meet and having his album signed by famous American 80's singer Donny Osmond back in the states but Donny had left for some reason and did not finish the meet and greet with his fans. That incident had made Martin Nievera promise himself that he will never leave no fan, that had fallen in line and waited long hours just to meet him, unrecognized. “Unless it’s a medical emergency”, he adds.

Despite being one of the Philippines’ most talented, long time running singers, Martin Nievera is proof that there are stars that remain humble and I believe that that is one of the things that has made him successful ‘til today.

With that in mind, this is one show that is not to be missed for sure. Perfect for everyone who’d like to reminisce the good ‘ol days by the Concert King himself.

MARTIN NIEVERA 3D: Tatlong Dekada album under Polyeast Records is now available in all record bars nationwide.

MARTIN NIEVERA 3D: Tatlong Dekada is happening on September 13, Friday at the Smart Araneta Coliseum. Tickets are now available at Ticketnet and at Viva Concerts. Buy tickets online at Call Ticketnet at 911-5555 or Viva Concerts at 687-7236.
