It will be their first concerts in the Philippines since 2019

Danish soft rock band Michael Learns To Rock have announced three new Philippine dates in Manila, Cebu and Davao for their upcoming ‘Back On The Road’ tour. 

Produced by concert promoter Wilbros Live, the trio’s Filipino outing will begin with a performance at Araneta Coliseum in Manila on October 26, followed by a stop at Waterfront Hotel Cebu’s Ballroom on October 28, before concluding at SMX Convention Center in Davao on October 30. The trio are slated to perform their greatest hits in these shows, as per their other Asian concerts.

All shows will feature support from veteran Filipino powerhouse Nina.


Tickets will be made available starting September 3, and can be purchased through TicketNet’s website for the Manila show, and SM Tickets’ website for the Cebu and Davao concerts. Details on ticket prices have yet to be announced.

The concerts will mark Michael Learns To Rock’s first live appearance in the Philippines in three years. Their last Filipino outing took place before the COVID-19 pandemic, with a one-night-only performance in Manila’s The Solaire Theater in 2019.

The group will make multiple stops around Southeast Asia prior to the Philippine concerts.
