To the delight of their fans, Chinese-South Korean boy band Exo returned in Manila for “Exo Planet #3-The EXO’rDIUm” held in Smart Araneta Coliseum.
Hailed by Dazed Digital as “the world’s biggest boy band”, they performed on the first day of the 2-day concert with hits like “MAMA”, “Overdose”, “Wolf” and “Call Me Baby”. The group also showed their killer moves as they danced to the beats of their recent tracks like “Monster” and “Lucky One”.
Some of PH EXO-Ls (EXO’s fandom name) were a bit disappointed when they learned that Lay will not make it to the Manila concerts. The Chinese member missed the Manila leg of the tour due to prior commitments. Still, the coliseum was glowing as the fans tirelessly waved their fandom light sticks to show their support for the eight performers present. PH EXO-Ls sang along to every song.
Here’s a 60-second video of the show’s highlights:
The effort were very much appreciated by the group — all of them expressed their desire to come back to the Philippines. Chanyeol even showed his admiration to the country by saying “Mabuhay!”, while some of the members sang Yeng Constantino’s Hawak Kamay that earned a lot of wild screams from the audience.
