Brian McFadden to treat PH fans to ‘romantic, intimate’ concert
Irish singer Brian McFadden, who rose to fame in the late 1990s as part of the pop boy band Westlife, is set to return to the Philippines next month for a “romantic and intimate” two-night concert.
The 39-year-old recording artist will take the stage at Mediterranean Hall of the Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino on Nov. 16; then at New Frontier Theater in Quezon City on Nov. 17.
Mounted by EKG Productions, the said gigs will be Brian’s first solo outings in the country, following the Manila stop of his “Boyzlife” tour with Boyzone’s Keith Duffy in 2017. (Call 8911-5555 or 0998-9644589.)
After his departure from Westlife in 2004, Brian pursued a solo career and scored his first hit “Real to Me,” which reached No. 1 in Ireland and the United Kingdom. He has since released five studio albums, the latest being “Otis.”
He was based in Australia for a while, where he found success not only as a singer-songwriter, but also as a radio presenter. He was also a judge in the reality talent search, “Australia’s Got Talent.”
Joining Brian in his coming Manila concerts is “Idol Philippines” winner Zephanie Dimaranan. —ALLAN POLICARPIO
