To kick things off, Orianthi had a press conference last August 19 at Hard Rock Café, followed by a special appearance at AMPed, a fund-raising concert of the Midlife Crisis band and AMP, last August 20 at the Newport Performing Arts Theater at Resorts World Manila. The concert was for the benefit of the Midlife Crisis band’s music scholars and for the building of classrooms.
She did some originals and covers of some classic rock songs. Some of the originals she played were Heaven In This Hell, Better With You, According To You, Think Like A Man, What's It Gonna Be and You Don't Wanna Know.
Orianthi enjoyed her busy week-long stay in Manila as seen on her posts on her instagram account! During her shows and interviews, she's been hinting on a return next year with Richie Sambora! We definitely can't wait for that! (Photos grabbed from Orianthi's instagram account: @theqof)
-Voted as Breakthrough Guitarist of the Year in 2010 by Guitar International magazine, Orianthi was exposed to rock music at an early age when she started taking an interest in the record collection of her father who was also a musician.
-She begged her dad to buy her a second-hand guitar and then bought all of Carlos Santana’s videos on VHS which she wore down while trying to learn his solos. Santana’s visit to Orianthi’s hometown in Adelaide when she was 11 proved to be a turning point for her.
