Bamboo Set To Tour UK, Ireland and Middle East

Fresh from recording another series of the hugely popular TV show ‘The Voice Kids’, Bamboo will take to the road for a UK & Ireland Tour of several of the world’s most iconic concert venues.

The music icon will play dates at the Usher Hall in Edinburgh (October 16), the Palace Theatre, Manchester (October 18), the Eventim Apollo in Hammersmith, London (October 19) and The Olympia Theatre, Dublin (October 24) as he continues the promotion of his second solo album ‘Bless This Mess’, released in late 2015.

“I can’t wait to play my new material for my fans in the UK and Ireland,” said the former singer who first found fame in the mid-1990s as lead singer of Rivermaya before going on to front his own eponymous band.

“The concerts will feature a lot of my new solo songs as well as many of the classics that prove popular every time we go on an international tour.”

Bamboo’s tour of the UK and Ireland will be produced and promoted by Spicy Lemon, the team behind Kamikazee’s hugely-successful ‘Huling Sayaw’ farewell show at Manila’s SMART Araneta Coliseum in December 2015.

It will be the third time Bamboo and Spicy Lemon have joined forces. The Dubai-based company also staged shows for Bamboo in the UAE in 2013 and 2014 and have drawn up plans for what will be the singer’s most ambitious shows outside of the Philippines.

“The venues we will be playing are among the most famous in the world – I’m looking forward to playing them all,” added Bamboo.

“The greatest bands have all played the Hammersmith Apollo so it’s an honour to be able to perform on a stage that has welcomed some of my favourite artists such as the Beatles, Radiohead and U2.”

For the thousands of Filipinos who now live and work in the UK and Ireland, Bamboo’s autumn tour will also provide an authentic link to the Philippines – a fact not lost on a singer who has reached a new global TV audience thanks to his role as coach and mentor on both ‘The Voice of the Philippines’ and ‘The Voice Kids’.

“The support I get when I play abroad is something else so for one night, through my music, I’m going to bring those guys back home – that’s a promise,” he added. “It’s going to be fun and I’m expecting a lot of energy from the crowd, as well as myself and the band – we really want this to be a family affair with the older generation coming along with their kids.”

As well as the UK and Ireland, Bamboo will also play October shows in Dubai, UAE and the city of Doha in Qatar. Bamboo’s tour of the UK, Ireland and the Middle East is produced and promoted by Spicy Lemon with full venue details and ticket information available from www.spicylemon.rocks.

Tickets for Edinburgh, London and Dublin are on sale now (through the ‘EVENTS’ page), while fans wanting to see Bamboo live in Manchester, Dubai and Doha should check the ‘EVENTS’ section of our website and check our social media platforms for news on when tickets will become available.

BLESS THIS MESS ALBUM

Bamboo Mañalac says “Bless This Mess” to sophomore album,

PolyEast Records and one of the country’s most prominent names of OPM, Bamboo Mañalac announced the release of the sophomore album “Bless This Mess.” The album was officially launched on October 26 at 12 Monkeys Music Hall and Pub in Makati City.

Nearly four years after beginning a solo career with the brilliant 2011 “No Water, No Moon,” Bamboo ease into his second phase with the new album “Bless This Mess” released by PolyEast Records.

Taking subtle risks such as the bluesy but energy-boost kick-off single “Firepower”, Bamboo said the song was written at the time of his 2011 “No water, No Moon” but didn’t think it matched the tone of the other songs in his first solo album.

He added, “So it was shelved and developed and was ready for this new album. I think listeners have to figure out for themselves what the songs means. I wanted folks to feel the music, the kick, then they’ll get the lyric”.

“Firepower” was officially heard on digital platforms like Spotify, iTunes, Deezr, Spinnr, Amazon, Guvera Music as well as local radios all over the country on October 15. PolyEast Records’ YouTube channel also premiered a prelude song “Nothing Like You” which connects to Firepower music video directed by Paolo Valenciano. “In the video, both songs are together because they are meant to be the same thing. If you see the video, you’ll get to interpret how both connect to each other,” Bamboo added.

The album was recorded in Grand Street Recording Studio in Brooklyn, New York and features ten brand new well-crafted compositions. “After the whole experience, I think it was the only place on the planet I could have recorded this album– with all the elements needed and the different characters for each track. It’s the songs that dictate the direction of the album where all just fit. It wasn’t easy but that’s the fun part”.

In a five-month process during his TV stints as coach of The Voice, Bamboo produced and wrote most of the songs winding up a renewed energy pushing different styles as he said, “There’s definitely a shake up– from the quiet feeling of the last album, I wanted this one to be a punch in the face”.

As the album title “Bless This Mess” signifies more than it seems, he explained, “I’ll let folks figure that out but it’s something I’ve whispered to myself before sessions or gigs in past years”.

“I could be wrong with how long the break was and that’s the challenge of why it took so long. There was just so much swimming in my head and this album is part moving forward as well as just fitting another piece to the puzzle — in regards to how my current sets will sound and look like”.

Bamboo Mañalac’s new offering “Bless This Mess” CD will be available on October 30 at all records bars nationwide. Digital tracks can also be downloaded on iTunes, Amazon and Guvera Music. You may also listen to the full album on Spotify.
