  • EVENTS IN MANILA: August 24-25, 2019
  • Before everyone turns into Christmas mode once September crawls in, another (which is also the final) long weekend is waiting this month in celebration of National Heroes’ Day.

    And to make the most out of it, we made a list of events you can drop by this August 24 to 25!

    EXO Planet #5 in Manila, Day 2 (August 24)

    Originally, the August 24 concert of one of today’s biggest Korean groups, EXO, was their only scheduled tour in the Philippines. But the approximate 15,000 seating capacity of Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City cannot completely cater to the group’s large fanbase, rendering the concert organizer Pulp Live World to add another date, which falls on August 23 (Friday). Unfortunately, tickets for Saturday are sold out; but there are still some available for Friday.
