Returning to the Philippines after six years, British pop band The Vamps put up a fantastic performance for their Filipino fans at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City last Feb 17.

Marking the end of their greatest hits tour in Manila, the group made sure to make the most out of it.

As the lights went dim, The Vamps opened the show with a fan-favorite song, "Last Night," and "Girls on TV." The fans waved lightsticks and banners as they sang along with the band.

"This is going to be a fun night. I can feel it," Bradley mentioned.

He even greeted one of the fans with "Happy Birthday" while walking on stage.

Before performing the next song, Bradley recalled how their Pinoy fans had always been so special when they first staged their concert in the Philippines in 2016.

"The first time that we were here was in 2015 or 2016, and we were blown away by the response. We'd never been here before, and we had just released our first album at that time, and we got to play for your beautiful people, but right now, we are so far away from home, but however every time we come to perform here in the Philippines, you never fail to amaze us," Bradley said.

The concert got more exciting as they sang another greatest hit, "Can We Dance," "All Night," "Wake Up," and "Too Good to Be True." Before singing "Risk it All," Bradley gave his fans a short message for their fans.

"It makes us happy to sing this song, hopefully helping people going through a difficult time. That makes us connect with you guys and hopefully brings us closer," he said.

The band closed the concert with the song "Somebody to You."
