Icelandic Singer-Songwriter Laufey to Perform in Manila as Part of Asia-Australia Tour

Icelandic singer-songwriter Laufey is set to perform in Manila, Philippines on September 2, 2023 at the SM MOA Arena as part of her 'Bewitched: The Goddess Tour ' in Asia and Australia. The tour, scheduled to run from August 17, 2024, to September 13, 2024, will feature performances in various countries including China, Japan, Thailand, Taiwan, Malaysia, Singapore, and Australia.

Laufey has risen to prominence on the global stage in recent years, releasing her debut album 'Everything I Know About Love' in 2022 and her third album 'Bewitched' in 2023, which earned her a Grammy Award for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album. The singer is currently undertaking the first tour leg across North America to support the album, which is scheduled to wrap up on August 7, 2024, before she begins the newly announced Asia and Australia tour.

This will be Laufey's first arena headliner performance in the Philippines. Prior to the Manila show, Laufey will perform in several other Asian cities, including Tokyo, Osaka, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong, and Taipei. She will also visit Singapore in early September and have three shows in Australia.

Laufey previously visited the Philippines in 2023 for her first-ever Asia tour, and she will be returning to the country on May 28-29 to perform with the Manila Philharmonic Orchestra at the PICC Plenary Hall. Laufey started as a finalist in the 2014 season of Iceland's Got Talent and recently won her first Grammy for Best Traditional Pop Vocal for her album 'Enchanted'.

Why this matters: Laufey's upcoming performance in Manila is a significant event for music enthusiasts in the Philippines and across Asia. Her unique blend of modern love and nostalgic 50's jazz has attracted a growing international fan base, and her Asia-Australia tour is expected to further solidify her status as a rising star in the music industry.

Presale tickets for the Australia leg of the tour will be available from April 24, 2024, while general tickets will go on sale from April 26, 2024. Laufey is known for her ability to captivate a crowd and is changing the way her generation engages with classical music. Tickets and tour information are available through Frontier Touring.
