Blue Man Group Live in Manila!

The worldwide phenomenal group known as the Blue Man Group is set to bring comedy, theater, rock concert, and a dance party all in one fantastic show in Manila!

Blue Man Group 2016 World Tour has already made its stops in Singapore, Macau, and now, they are bringing their iconic show to Manila, premiering on September 14 to 25 at The Theater at Solaire. In partnership with the Philippines’ #1 mobile brand Globe Telecom, its customers are in for special treats and deals to catch the iconic show. 

The Blue Man name was chosen to evoke the word Human and is all about the colourful celebration of life.

The performance that centered on the curious, innocent, Blue Man character turned out to be a groundbreaking performance that left audiences awed.  To date, they’ve played to over 35 million people across more than 20 countries and even have permanent shows in Las Vegas, New York, Orlando, Boston, Chicago and Berlin.

Other interesting numbers to digest – during one week of performances the Blue Man relies on 32 pounds of Jell-O, 8 boxes of Cap’n Crunch cereal, 96 pieces of white chocolate Toblerone, 240 marshmallows and 40 boxes of Twinkie Lights (don’t worry — each Twinkie has just 130 calories!). Whether eaten or used in the show, that is for you to find out at the Blue Man Group 2016 World Tour now on in Manila until September 25.

The tour also relies on 25 drum heads, 14 cymbals, 24 drumsticks, 50 gallons of paint, 27 bald caps, and 9 cakes of proprietary ‘Blue Man Blue’ coloured makeup specially made for the trio.

The creative collective has become part of the pop culture zeitgeist with a “Megastar World Tour”, a rock concert parody hitting 100 US cities and ten countries, and two million fans. The group boasts five music albums, collaborations on film scores and performances with prestigious orchestras as well.

Despite the absence of spoken dialogue, the Blue Man Group keeps audiences mesmerised during its show with a fully immersive audio-visual experience complete with electrifying music, state-of-the-art technology, an enthralling live band and its signature interactive, audience experiences.

When asked what he considers the group’s best show yet, Stanton says: “Our best show is the one audiences will see right here in Manila. We are continually honing our brand of stagecraft to finding the best expression of that original voice. The show they will see incorporates all we have learned, and represents our most up-to-date show in terms of the character’s unique fresh take on the way we all live today,” he enthuses.

James Reid for Century Tuna
James Reid for Century Tuna
Many have gotten curious and intrigued as to who is that guy that is in one of the huge billboards in EDSA during the past weeks. At last, the hunk with those luscious lips behind the billboard has been finally revealed!




James Reid is Century Tuna's newest celebrity endorser

Why not, right? Century Tuna's latest campaign is all about transformation and metamorphosis. James Reid perfectly embodies the message that the product wants to convey as he has completely transformed himself - private life, career, and physique - from that young, sickly, and reserved guy we've known way back his PBB days. 





Since then, James has achieved numerous citations and recognitions from box-office movies, most-watched TV series, Platinum album, being the other half of the most in-demand loveteam in the country - JaDine, and, soon, the couple's much-awaited teleserye, Till I Met You


With regular gym workout, weightlifting, balanced diet that is consisted of good carbs, no rice, and, of course, Century Tuna, James was able to maintain his gorgeous sculpted body despite his busy schedule. Truly, there is #NoBodyLikeJames Reid's.

#HeartOverHate: Stop Cyberbullying Now!

#HeartOverHate

Many lives have already been affected and destroyed. You surely wouldn't know how it feels until it happens to you. I'm sure you wouldn't want it to happen to any of your loved ones so let's all be sensitive about the feelings of others.

Before you post, always remember to choose #HeartOverHate


These past few weeks, GMA Network has been busy cooking up a campaign that is very relevant and timely in this age of technology. Together with some of the top bloggers in the country and select Kapuso artists, two teams have to come up with a campaign that will promote this year's theme. Dubbed as #HeartOverHate, the advocacy aims to promote anti-cyberbullying.

The group of bloggers and Kapuso stars were divided into two teams: Team Boys and Team Girls. 

Team Boys were comprised of artists Phytos Ramirez, Martin del Rosario, Derrick Monasterio, Ken Chan with bloggers  MJ de Leon, Jerhwin Hernandez, John Bueno, Kristine Roces, and Rochelle Rivera.
