“Thank you guys! I’m really sick today but you guys made me feel so much better! Mahal kita!” beamed pop star Ariana Grande at the Smart Music Live-sponsored Manila staging of her Dangerous Woman Tour last Aug. 21 at the Mall of Asia Arena.
In a separate Instagram post after her two-hour concert, Queen Ari poured more love for Filipino Arianators saying, “Manila, I love you always! Thank you for having me and for always bringing me so much light! Whenever I’m under the weather, you give me so much life.”
She added, “Thank you for your love, your sincerity, your sense of humor and overall you-ness. You stay recharging me. I love you with all my heart and appreciate you more than you know. Mahal kita!”
Grande, all-grown up and showing the world how to rise above a tragedy as devastating as the Manchester bombing that happened during her concert, asserted her hold over a sold out concert in spite of the rains Monday night in Manila.
With about 10 dancers joining her, Grande stretched her vocals and dance moves while singing hits One Last Time, Let Me Love You, Bad Decisions, Touch It, Leave Me Lonely, Bang Bang, Love Me Harder, Break Free, Into You, Somewhere Over the Rainbow and Dangerous Woman among many other hits.
Lucky fans were able to watch the concert for free via Smart Music Live and #SmartArianaGrande promos. These Smart subscribers were also able to live the concert day a la Ariana on tour via the Smart Party Bus, pre-concert event.
Smart has brought Sam Mendes, David Guetta, In the Mix and will soon be bringing Ed Sheeran later this year to keep its concert campaign ruling the Manila concert scene.
Only four days separated In the Mix from Ariana’s concert as 5 Seconds of Summer bannered the all-star concert alongside DNCE, Daya, Dua Lipa, Two Door Cinema Club and Zara Larsson last Aug. 17 also at the Arena.
