British-Norwegian group A1 is expected to churn out their familiar tunes at their Manila concert on the evening of February 25, 2012, including the new, exciting rendition of their smash hit “Like A Rose.”
Member Ben Adams who wrote “Like A Rose” is thrilled to announce, “We have just updated it for a brand new version for 2012, which was amazingly fun to do! Very excited for you all to hear it!”
He recalled, “I wrote it when I was 16 years old on my old upright piano at my parents house. I haven’t told anyone this really as most people assume it’s a love song, but it was actually originally written for my mom!”
A1 also released via MCA Music a new album entitled “Waiting For Daylight,” containing 15 tracks, including that song’s unreleased acoustic version along with alternate takes on “Caught In the Middle,” and “Everytime.” Carrier single is the title track which boasts elements constituting the relieving feeling of seeing daylight after a stormy night.
Joining a1 for the Wilbros Live-produced February concert at Smart Araneta Coliseum are contemporaries Blue and Jeff Timmons, lead vocalist of 98 Degrees. Fans can expect these guys to sing their biggest hits and surprise cuts in the triple-treat concert dubbed “The Greatest Hits Tour: Blue, Jeff Timmons of 98 Degrees and a1 – Live in Manila 2012.”
Timmons noted that the Dan Hill-penned hit “I Do” was recored in Nashville with mega-producer Keith Thomas. “I remember being there right after finding out about my ex-wife being pregnant with our daughter.”
The English vocal group Blue, comprised of Simon Webbe, Lee Ryan, Duncan James and Antony Costa, is set to paint the town red by singing live their hits such as “All Rise”, “Too Close”, “If You Come Back”, “Fly By”, “One Love”, “Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word”, “Guilty”, and “Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I’m Yours).”
