Last April 28, adoring K-pop fans of EXO trooped to the Arena for the Elyxion concert, the 4th installment of the superstar group’s world tour. The multi-awarded K-pop band brought the Arena down with a show complete with laser beams, a stylish bar, and light effects that matched their songs perfectly. With fans like EXO-Ls, the show took a mesmerizing turn as the audience made an ocean of silver with their light sticks moving to the beat of the band.

May 1 saw the return of Harry Styles to the Philippines with his first solo tour after his last concert with One Direction in 2015. Harry did not disappoint as he serenaded his loyal fans with a powerful and moving performance.

“I only have one job here, and that is to entertain all of you,” said Styles as he shook the Arena with his signature hits “Sign of the Times” and “Only Angel” from his self-titled album.

A day after Harry Style’s show, the Arena was again filled with eager fans for another world-renowned performer, the incomparable Bruno Mars.

The concert kicked-off witha bang, as award-winning dance crew Jabawockeez took to the stage, and segued to Bruno Mars and his band, the Hooligans. The Grammy Award-winning artist brought the whole venue to its feet as Bruno Mars started off with his chart-topping hits “Finesse” and “24K Magic”.
