Boyce Avenue back in the Philippines for a series of post-Valentine gigs

Coming from their successful Valentine concert last year, the American rock band tweeted their excitement on their return to the country upon gracing the 'Tonight with Boy Abunda' show in ABS-CBN:

Having an already established fan based in the Philippines, the band's visit is also aligned with its mission to promote its latest single 'Be Somebody' and to prepare its Pinoy fans with the upcoming release of their much anticipated third album entitled 'Road Less Traveled.' Fans trooped to the Araneta Coliseum last Tuesday (February 16) as they were serenaded by the band that went to become an independent after being signed before to a major label namely the Universal Republic.

Aside from the trio, songwriter-musician Savanna Outen and the young Australian band, At Sunset were also at the concert, taking the fans into a night of intense musical indulgence. Aside from the Manila concert, Boyce Avenue is also set to perform in key cities of the country such as Cebu, Cagayan de Oro, Bacolod and Baguio.

Disneyland in the Philippines? Not so soon.

What has been a long standing rumor of the Philippines having its own Disneyland theme park has been shut following the meeting of President Benigno Aquino III and some executive of Disney. The meeting discussed the potential investments that the American multi-national company might enter into. Unfortunately, building another Disneyland theme park was part of the discussion.

It can be noted that there were various sources online that has been spreading the possibility of having a Disneyland theme park to be built at Clark, Pampanga, but as of the moment, the Philippine market isn't that big enough to fuel the existence of another Disneyland in Asia.
