Just earlier today, it was confirmed that Grande will be trotting back to Manila this August to reconnect with her Filipino fans. The performer is scheduled to hold a concert at the Mall of Asia Arena this coming August 21, promoter Music Management International has revealed.

The Manila leg is part of Grande’s "Dangerous Woman" worldwide tour that will be kicked off this month. Aside from Asian cities, the “Side to Side” singer is also set to perform in selected destinations in Europe, Latin America, and Australia in the next four months.

Aside from Grande, another returning act in the country this year is Sheeran. The British musician who has catapulted into stardom with his hit “Thinking Out Loud” is said to be performing for his Filipino followers on November 7 as part of his third world tour dubbed as "÷ Tour." However, the venue and other specifics of the event have yet to be disclosed and fans are advised to check back on his website for further details. The news that the 26-year-old is coming back to Manila came just a day before Grande’s separate concert was confirmed.

Grande was just in the Philippines to perform almost two years ago, in 2015 while she was doing her "The Honeymoon" Tour. Meanwhile, Sheeran’s second time in the country follows his sold out first concert in Manila which was also held in 2015.

Grande’s and Sheeran's upcoming concerts solidify Manila’s stance as being one of the top musical destinations in Southeast Asia with various acts flocking the country to connect with their Filipino fans. Last month, iconic rock band Coldplay held their very first gig in Manila at the Mall of Asia Concert grounds which was flocked by countless supporters.
