The Corrs to hold concerts at Araneta Coliseum on Oct. 22-23

They're back! Irish family band The Corrs is due to perform at the Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City on Oct. 22-23.

"We're heading to the Philippines with two dates at The Araneta Coliseum in Manila this October! Tickets on Sale on Sunday the 19th March - #TheCorrsinMNL2023," The Corrs announced on its official Facebook page on March 8.

"You guessed it right! The Irish music legends, The Corrs, are coming back to Manila to give you two nights of #TheCorrsinMNL2023. Happening at @TheBigDome this October 21-22, 2023," Pulp Live World announced on Twitter.

The Corrs is known for their hits "Runaway," "So Young," "What Can I Do," "All The Love In The World," "Don't Say You Love Me," and more.

The Corrs are a family affair, Andrea (lead vocals), Sharon (violin, piano, vocals), Caroline (drums, piano, vocals) and Jim (guitar, piano, vocals) who have sold over 40 million albums worldwide since their 1995 debut album Forgiven Not Forgotten crashed into the charts and stole our hearts.

An enchanting mix of traditional Celtic music with a pop rock twist, The Corrs have written some of the biggest songs of the last three decades.

This year Talk On Corners, The Corrs’ record-breaking second album turns 25! In the UK charts it’s the fourth biggest record of the 1990s, and 2016 was still listed as the 28th biggest selling album of all Time. Its success – returning to Number 1 six times – brought their 1995 debut Forgiven, Not Forgotten up to Number 2, making them the rare band to achieve that feat. (It was influential too – Ed Sheeran cites the band’s 90s success as the inspiration behind his hit single Galway Girl.)

Reflecting on that period – when the band toured the world incessantly, appearing at awards shows and supporting the likes of U2, the Rolling Stones and Mick Fleetwood – both Caroline and Andrea remark that it’s like looking at different people. “I wouldn’t change a thing,” says Caroline, “but at the same time it didn’t come without its sacrifices.”

Andrea remarks on how critics used to claim that Jim wrote all the songs for his sisters to sing. “That is just sexist, right?!” she says.

“Without a doubt. Jim would never have wanted that. We wrote all our songs together, but that wasn’t expected back then. Now we’re in the time of Adele, Amy Winehouse – people know women are writing the songs. It’s better in that way. There’s not an assumption that the girls are looking pretty while the boys are masterminding.” (With additional information from The Corrs website)
