Two of the world’s biggest pop stars are set to perform in Manila this year. Again.

American singer-actress Ariana Grande and English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran, who both headlined successful concerts in the Philippines two years ago, have added Manila as one of the Asian stops on their respective ongoing world tours.

Grande, who played before a full house crowd at the Mall of Asia Arena for her hugely successful “The Honeymoon Tour,” will return to the same venue on August 21 as part of her “Dangerous Woman Tour.” Aside from Manila, other Asian stops of her tour include Tokyo, Singapore and Taipei.

Her Manila performance is made possible through concert promoter MMI Live. She is best known for big hits like “The Way,” “Problem,” “Break Free,” “Bang Bang,” “Love Me Harder,” “Focus,” “Dangerous Woman,” and “Side to Side.”

Sheeran was also a hit among Filipino fans when he first came here to perform also at the MOA Arena in 2015. He is best known for the number 1 hits, “Sing,” “Thinking Out Loud,” and “Shape of You.” He also charted in the U.S. Top 10 with “The A Team,” “You Need Me, I Don’t Need You,” “Lego House,” “Drunk,” “Don’t,” “Bloodstream,” “Castle on the Hill,” and “Galway Girl.”

He will be performing on November 7 at a venue to be announced. Ovation Productions is the promoter of Sheeran’s Manila show.
