FAST-rising synth-pop artist and producer Lauv, who recently sold out the Manila leg of his 2019 Asia Tour, has officially announced that due to incredible demand, a new Upper Box section with limited seats will be added to his much anticipated live concert on May 20 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum. This will be Lauv’s third and biggest show in the Philippines to date, following a mall tour series back in 2017 and a music festival performance in 2018.
Produced by AEG Presents and Ovation Productions, general on-sale for the newly opened Upper Box section started March 25, while few more tickets to the previously announced Cebu show on May 20 at Waterfront Hotel Cebu City are still available.
In January, Lauv surprised fans with the release of brand new single “i’m so tired” with Troye Sivan. The instant hit has now over115 million streams on Spotify, soared up the Billboard Hot 100 Chart within a week of its release, and quickly rose to Top 13 on the UK Singles Chart, becoming Lauv’s first-ever Top 15 single in the United Kingdom. Other top recent Lauv collaborations include Julia Michaels for “There’s No Way,” DJ Snake for “A Different Way,” and Travis Mills for “Question.”
This past summer, Lauv performed his breakthrough hit, “I Like Me Better,” on the “Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon,” as well as the 2018 Teen Choice Awards and 2018 MTV Video Music Awards. The single reached the Top 10 of Top 40 US radio, and top 10 airplay hits around the globe including Australia, Germany, New Zealand and more. A major highlight of 2018 was the launch of his compilation album, “I met you when I was 18.” Since its release, “I Like Me Better” has gained more than 653 million Spotify streams and skyrocketed to be a certified six times platinum single globally. The song has spent a total of 13 weeks at number one on Billboard’s Emerging Artists Chart, and it has gone double platinum in the US, triple platinum in Australia, and platinum in other multiple markets. Lauv has now surpassed well over two billion cumulative streams worldwide as he continues to write and produce polished, power pop.
The 2019 Asia Tour even gets better as four-time Juno Awards 2019 nominee and pop iconoclast bülow joins Lauv as special guest on his two major shows in the Philippines. The German-born singer has previously released Damaged Vol. 1 and Damaged Vol. 2—each instantly resonating with critics and fans alike.
