Sergio Mendes appeared onstage with his band and performed an explosive welcome set. Mendes, a legend at the age of 73, shows no signs of slowing down, as evident in his performance during his one-night concert in Manila last November 15, 2014 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Mariah Carey’s current Australasian tour, “The Elusive Chanteuse Show,” kicked off on a dour note, with pundits and concertgoers alike panning the pop-R&B star for flubbing lyrics, going off-key and bungling high notes during her Japan and Korea stops earlier this month.
Producer, composer, keyboardist and vocalist Sergio Mendes will perform his most popular hits at the Smart Araneta Coliseum on Nov. 15, 8 p.m. His special guest is Joe Pizzulo. “Sergio Mendes and Brasil 2014” tickets are available at TicketNet outlets, ticketnet.com.ph, or call tel. 9115555.

Perhaps the boys—now grown-up men, actually—probably wanted a no-frills performance, explaining the absence of a band and other fancy engineering to back their show up.
