DUBAI, April 4, 2022 - Gigi De Lana and The Gigi Vibes - undeniably the hottest Filipino band on tour right now - are proving to be quite the chameleon performers: in the month of March, they had four concerts that took them from the widest stage in the Philippines at Resorts World Manila's Newport Performing Arts Theatre, to the open-air festival Jubilee Stage of Dubai Expo 2020, to the august halls of Abu Dhabi's National Theatre, and lastly, to the Bahrain Conference Center of Crowne Plaza Bahrain in the heart of Manama's diplomatic area, close to embassies and the World Trade Centre, where they wrapped up triumphantly the first phase of their international Domination tour. 


Before diverse crowds and audience sizes, Gigi De Lana and The Gigi Vibes transformed themselves to exactly what the live viewers wanted, surprising and delighting them with unexpected sights and sounds, so that no single show was duplicated.  Each one stood out as unique and as a scrumptious treat for the senses.       
To close out the month of March, De Lana and her band sold out again another stop of her tour which was in Manama, the capital of Bahrain.  For this concert, even fans from nearby countries trooped to the island kingdom to catch the spectacle and energy of a Gigi De Lana and The Gigi Vibes show.

"We came from Saudi Arabia just to see this show. We've been planning for it.  Actually,  we came twice: first to buy the tickets, then to see the show. We watch their videos on YouTube. My wife turned me to it. And this is really a great show. The outfits... the realism of it with a live band... it was truly lovely," said John Comeaux.   

 "Napakaganda po ng concert ni Gigi De Lana. I find her very charming at napakagaling na singer pala po talaga. Thank you, Gigi and the Gigi Vibes for bringing your music to Bahrain (Gigi De Lana's concert is amazing. I find her very charming and she's really an excellent singer)," said Gem Reyes.

We are very happy na nadala natin dito si Gigi de Lana at Gigi Vibes band with Sam Concepcion. Sold out po ang ating crowd dito sa Crowne Plaza. Marami po sa ating mga kababayan ang hindi nakapasok... dahil punong-puno na po ang venue. (We are very happy to have brought Gigi De Lana and The Gigi Vibes band with Sam Concepcion here in Bahrain. It was a sold-out concert. A lot of our countrymen were not able to enter anymore as the venue has reached full capacity),” said TFC Middle East concert partner, head organizer Filipino Club Bahrain President Ric Advincula, in an interview with Leslie Garduque of TFC News Bahrain.  

Also, in an interview with TFC News Bahrain, the Philippine Embassy in Bahrain's Charge d’ Affaires Maria Paz Cortes exclaimed: “Sobrang awesome! Nakaka-speechless. Ang galing po niya! You have brought so much joy to our kababayans here in Bahrain so maraming salamat po sa inyong lahat and congratulations on a very successful and sold-out concert (It was awesome! It rendered me speechless. She's great! You have brought so much joy to our countrymen here in Bahrain, so thank you very much to all of you and congratulations on a very successful and sold-out concert)!"
De Lana and her band left no stone unturned in entertaining the audience.  The group showed their breadth of musical influences (and tastes) with exciting numbers that spanned the genres of classic and alternative rock, inspirational music, her biggest YouTube hits, "Gigi-fied" versions of classic OPM and original songs from her first eponymously titled album.


And.... that's a wrap for the triumphant Middle East leg of the Domination Tour of Gigi De Lana and The Gigi Vibes, shown here with guest Sam Concepcion at the Bahrain Conference Center of Crowne Plaza Bahrain. 
"We at ABS-CBN TFC are so grateful to the fans and our partners that we closed 2021 with the successful 1MX Music Festival in Dubai and wrapped up the first quarter of 2022 with this victorious Domination tour of Gigi De Lana and The Gigi Vibes here in the Middle East," said ABS-CBN Global Head of Events and Managing Director for Europe, Middle East and North Africa Joseph A. Garcia. "The consistent success of our live events is a testament that Filipino artists are destined to dominate the world stage. We look forward to a very promising events season in 2022."
