Cebu is in for one incredible rock show. PULP Live World and Skesh Entertainment are excited to bring Boston favorites BOYS LIKE GIRLS to play their first Philippine show in a decade! BOYS LIKE GIRLS LIVE IN CEBU is happening on September 15, 2020 at the Sky Hall Seaside Cebu.
It will be a show that’s sure to trigger nostalgia with Martin Johnson (vocals/guitar), Paul DiGiovanni (guitar), John Keefe (drums), and Morgan Dorr (bass) playing their iconic debut album front to back. Released back in 2006, the self-titled Boys Like Girls carried songs that served as the soundtrack to the coming of age of a distinct generation of pop-punk/pop rock fans. It was an album that allowed the band to break through the music scene, with hits like “Hero/Heroine,” “The Great Escape,” and “Thunder” spending weeks on Billboard charts.
As iconic as the band was at the time just for this album alone, this debut release was soon followed in 2009 by Love Drunk, with more anthems for fans to sing along to like the title track “Love Drunk,” “She’s Got A Boyfriend Now,” “Heart Heart Heartbreak,” and “Two Is Better Than One” featuring Taylor Swift.
It comes as no surprise that, in the latter part of 2019 following years of inactivity, fans were ecstatic upon hearing the news that Boys Like Girls would be hitting the road on their first headlining tour in ten years, officially announcing five dates in Australia slated for April 2020. This exciting news followed years of inactivity, with the band’s third and most recent album Crazy World (“Be Your Everything,” Life of the Party,” “The First Time”) coming out way back in 2012.
Boys Like Girls had a short tour in 2016 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of their debut album and are now looking to make an extension of that celebration by setting their sights outside of the US, in other corners of the world that they missed to include. Before they head over to Australia for their first tour in a decade, the band is stopping by Asia for their first shows in years.
It may have been over a decade since Boys Like Girls first took over our local radio stations and music channels, but these are songs that resonate with their fans to this day. It’s exciting that Boys Like Girls are back, but it’s even more exciting that PULP Live World has set the stage in Cebu for the band’s first show together in so long. That said, fans in Cebu are going to be among the first Boys Like Girls fans to welcome the band back in the scene!
