The Philippines’ ‘Prince of Rock’, Bamboo Manalac, is coming to Qatar this weekend to dazzle thousands of his fans as he takes the stage to perform in concert at Al Arabi Sports Club Stadium on Friday.
Bamboo Manalac is expected to sing some of his greatest hits, including Tatsulok, Hallelujah, Noypi and Kailan, along with songs from his latest album Bless This Mess. Around 5,000 concertgoers are expected to attend Bamboo Live in Doha 2018, which is part of the rockstar’s world tour, according to a report by The Peninsula.
This is not the first time that Bamboo has visited Qatar. As one of the best-loved Filipino artists by Filipino music-lovers in Doha, Bamboo—who is one of the coaches of The Voice Philippines—visited and staged successful shows in 2010, 2014 and 2016.
“This is the first time that a Qatari owned company that concentrates mainly on exhibitions and conferences business would collaborate for a Filipino event and we are just excited to touch base on the Filipino community and put a big concert that is organized in less than a month,” said Jihad Sarieddine, Events Manager of Alrabta Al Arabia.
He added that they are as thrilled as the Filipino community to have Bamboo in his comeback concert in Doha.
“This shows how Camp Kawayan is loved by OFWs especially here in Doha,” added Sarieddine.
“We are overwhelmed with how the “Kababayans” are responding into this event and I am positive that Bamboo will rock the Al Arabi Stadium fourth time in a row,” stated the Qatari Rashid Hamad Al Marri, Chairman of the Alrabta Al Arabia. He also said he plans to bring more Filipino artists here in the future.
The concert will also feature Qatar-based Filipino artists, including Global Tawag ng Tanghalan (Showtime) regional finalist Thea Gosilatar Astley and Qatar Duet To Win It grand champion Janus Pochollo III, in addition to singing nurse balladeer Red Cadorna, Trece Familia, Extreme Level Danz Crew, Moving Colours and Qatar All Star Dancers.
The concert is set to last two hours. Tickets are priced QR 100 (regular), QR 200 (VIP) and QR 300 (VVIP with meet and greet), and can be purchased via Q-Tickets. The gate opens at 4 pm and the concert begins at 7 pm.
