MANILA, Philippines—After the front acts, Psy finally took the stage on Saturday night at SM MOA Arena.

He said, “This is the reason why I’m here in the Philippines” before he performed the internationally famous “Gangnam Style” song-and-dance number.

The crowd, as usual, recorded the performance with their digital cameras, camera phones and tablets.

Psy was asked to repeat the song after the audience asked for more. This time, Psy requested the people to stop recording the performance and just enjoy it.

“Sing, dance and jump like crazy,” he told the crowd.

He did about seven numbers before ending the show.

“Please keep on supporting me,” he said before disappearing from the stage.

Comedians Ai-Ai delas Alas, Wally Bayola and Jose Manalo earlier performed as opening acts.

    Please just stop recording and uploading everything on youtube guys. You paid money to be there, to watch the show live, why spend the whole time recording it for freeloaders to comment and criticize it for the awful, shaky quality on youtube? It’s disrespectful to the performer.. wag tayong bastos. Nakakahiya ano ba, pagbawal nalang mga gadget, cp sa mga concert venue mas ok pa siguro.. kasi, what’s the point of doing it live if everybody can watch it online? Ang bastos.

    you can probably record a minute and a half max, then stop and enjoy the songs. psy was probably seeing a lot of hands with cameras or phones in front of him.
