After their last concert in 2020, American cover band Boyce Avenue returns to the Philippines to serenade their fans this upcoming Valentine's week.

Known for their cover songs on YouTube, Boyce Avenue consists of three brothers named Alejandro, Fabian, and Daniel Manzano.

The band has garnered over 4.8 billion YouTube views and over 13.2 million subscribers, making their channel one of the most popular in the world.

And considering the Philippines as their second home, the band is even more excited to perform for the 11th time since their first concert in 2009.

During their exclusive Zoom with the press last Wednesday, lead vocals Alejandro shared what makes their Filipino fans special.

"For us, I think the passion for music. There's a deeper level that seems to be interwoven into the Filipino culture is to be romantic culture, and that's just a big part of what we've always loved to do. Whenever we perform live, the crowd always sings passionately here in the Philippines, especially on the love songs," Alejandro said.

The band will perform at the Araneta Coliseum on Feb. 11; Cebu at the Waterfront Hotel Ballroom, Feb. 12; and at the SMX Convention Center in Davao on Feb. 14.

Playing three different shows in the Philippines, they are also looking forward to some activities in Cebu and Davao.

"One of the most exciting about this tour is that we're not only going to play in Manila, but we're also playing in Cebu and Davao, so we will be traveling a lot, but we would also like to try some of the foods on those places," Daniel mentioned.

Boyce Avenue will be joined by OPM hitmakers Adie, Nobita, and The Juans during their Manila leg tour.
