Mayday Parade rocks Manila during their epic comeback concert

American rock band Mayday Parade delighted their fans with a nostalgic and rock-filled show on October 27 at the New Frontier Theatre in Manila. This marked the band’s return to the Philippines after five years.

Mayday Parade kicked off their set with a bang, playing their hit song “Oh Well, Oh Well.”

The Frontman Derek Sanders then expressed his enthusiasm for being back in Manila, saying, “It’s almost been five years since we’ve been here in Manila. That’s far too long if you ask me.”

During their performance, the band treated the audience to a mix of their classic hits and more recent releases. They played songs like “Kids of Summer,” the crowd-favorite “Three Cheers for Five Years,” and a much latest single from 2021, “Kids In Love.” They even brought a piano onto the stage for some of their mellow/soft songs.

In the middle of their set, Derek Sanders took time to open up about his struggles with depression, making it clear that the show held a special significance for the band.

The show concluded with the Mayday Parade’s hit song “Jamie All Over,” featuring a guitar solo by Alex Garcia. The band informed the audience that one of the band members, Brooke Betts, the stage-left guitar player, couldn’t perform with them as he was awaiting the birth of his child.

Mayday Parade assured their Filipino fans that they would be returning soon with new music, leaving the audience with an exciting promise of what’s to come.

The successful “Mayday Parade Live in Manila 2023” concert was made possible by PULP Live World.
