International sensation TNT Boys have added another history-making feat to their long list of accolades as they now hold the record of being the youngest artists to headline a sold-out concert, not only at the Araneta Coliseum but in the whole country, with their successful “Listen: The Big Shot Concert.”
Thousands of Filipino and foreign fans filled up the Big Dome as they witnessed the powerhouse performances of Mackie Empuerto, Keifer Sanchez, and Francis Concepcion, who all thanked their fans for their unwavering love and support in their concert last November 30.
With their signature high notes and hair-raising vocals, the TNT Boys opened the night with a performance of “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going.” The trio, overcome with emotions, also teared up during their performance of “Flashlight,” one of their most applauded of the night, while the crowd lit up the venue with glow sticks and mobile phones.
Unkabogable star and “Fantastica” lead star Vice Ganda also brought laughter to the crowd and expressed how proud he was of the three boys, whom he considers his sons. “Tawag ng Tanghalan” hurado K Brosas also joined the fun by dressing up as Jessie J, singing “Price Tag,” and cracking jokes.
Jed Madela offered a world-class performance with the TNT Boys as they sang popular and well-loved classics. Meanwhile, “TNT” grand champions Janine Berdin, Jhon Clyd Talili, and Noven Belleza proved their vocal prowess in their powerful rendition of “We are the Champions.”
The trio’s friends from “Your Face Sounds Familiar Kids” Xia Vigor, Onyok Pineda, Esang De Torres, Sheena Belarmino, Noel Comia Jr., Chunsa Jung, and Krystal Brimner were also present to impersonate popular music icons.
The program ended with the TNT Boys’ all-out performance of “Listen,” which drew loud cheers and screams from fans.
“Listen: The Big Shot Concert” did not just draw crowds at the Big Dome, as thousands of ABS-CBN TVplus subscribers watched their concert live right at the comfort of their homes via the digital TV service’s KBO feature.
Officially formed as a trio after their viral vocal showdown in the late night talk show “Gandang Gabi Vice” last year, the TNT Boys have since impressed viewers here and abroad and earned awards. They recently received the Royal Cub award from the entertainment blog Lionheartv for consistently making headlines and their trending performances. They were also named the Pop Child Performer of the Year at the PPOP Awards for Young Artists 2018, which honored outstanding young artists who have made a mark on Philippine pop culture, music, and performing arts.
The boys are also regulars in “ASAP Natin ‘To,” where they give stellar vocal performances every week alongside the country’s finest singers. In time for the holidays, the TNT Boys are also releasing a Christmas album titled “TNT Boys Christmastime” under TNT Records where they give a modern twist to some of the most known Christmas song classics.
Fans are also up for more surprise as the boys are joining an international talent competition in the US, which will air soon.
