Air Supply to return to Manila this December

By NICK GARCIA Published Oct 14, 2022 11:42 am

Australian rock duo Air Supply, whose songs are a staple in Pinoy karaoke and "tito" playlists, will hold a back-to-back concert in Manila on Dec. 15 and 16 at the Newport Performing Arts Theater in Pasay City.

"You don’t have to wait forever, because they are coming back to Manila!" Newport World Resorts said in its official website. "[R]elive the songs that have become our soundtracks to love, heartbreak, and everything in between."

The Philippine visit of Air Supply, consisting of Russell Hitchcock and Graham Russell, is part of its The Lost in Love Experience world tour, which began this October.

Ticket prices at Ticketworld are as follows:

  • Platinum – P11,000
  • Seating VIP – P10,000
  • VIP – P9,000
  • Gold – P7,500
  • Silver – P5,000
  • Bronze – P2,500

Ticketworld said only fully vaccinated guests aged 7 and up will be allowed inside the theater.

Many netizens expressed their love for Air Supply in the post of Philippine Concerts—a million-follower Facebook page that shares upcoming concerts in the country.

"Fav. Their songs never get old," one user said.

Other users also remembered their parents who love Air Supply. "Kung naabutan 'to ni tatay, dalhin ko sya dito hehe."

Another commenter, meanwhile, jokingly asked why there's no mosh pit, an area in front of the concert stage where there's a typically wild crowd. It's an apparent reference to the Eraserheads' sold-out reunion concert, which has mosh pit access worth P17,000.

Founded in 1975, Air Supply is known for their hits Lost in Love, All Out of Love, Making Love Out Of Nothing At All, Even the Nights are Better, and Two Less Lonely People in the World.

Air Supply was inducted into the Australian Recording Industry Association's Hall of Fame in 2013.

Since the '80s, Air Supply has visited the Philippines over 20 times already.

In 2018, Graham said they're "really happy" to be in the country, noting that they have "so many fans" here.

"That’s why we keep coming back," he said, adding how "incredible" Filipino singers are. He described them as "probably the best in the world."
