“Why Don’t We” singer Austin Mahone, 23, is returning to the Philippines soon. He will perform in a one-night-only show for his Filipino fans follows a series of sold-out concerts in Madrid, Spain; Osaka and Yokohama, Japan; and Guangzhou and Shanghai, China.
Mahone will have a concert at the New Frontier Theater in Quezon City, Metro Manila, Philippines on October 22, 2019. His first world concert tour “Austin Mahone: Live On Tour” kicked off on July 25, 2014 in San Antonio, Texas, United States and ended in April 30, 2016 in Parañaque, Metro Manila.
Born in San Antonio, Texas, United States on April 4, 1996, Mahone attended Lady Bird Johnson High School in San Antonio. He is of English, French, German and Slovak descent.
In June 2010, Mahone started posting YouTube videos of himself performing covers of songs by Justin Bieber, Bruno Mars and Jason Mraz, among others. The viral content created an impact significant enough to land him a high-profile deal with Cash Money Records, the label home of Drake and Lil Wayne.
Subsequently, Mahone released his first single “11:11,” followed by “Say Somethin” and “Say You’re Just a Friend.” This unblemished hit streak lead him to debut on the road as the opening act for Taylor Swift’s “Red Tour” and headline a series of major shows for MTV’s Artist To Watch.
Mahone’s first EP “The Secret” soared to number on the Billboard 200, along with crowd favorites “All I Ever Need” and “Mmm Yeah” featuring Pitbull, which reached number 2 on the iTunes Chart and Top 20 on the Billboard Pop Songs Chart. His immediate rise to pop stardom earned him a number of accolades, including an MTV Video Music Award, MTV Europe Music Award, iHeartRadio Music Award, Radio Disney Music Award, Teen Choice Award, and Young Hollywood Award.
The Texan singer-songwriter has amassed a solid online following over 30 million followers strong across all social media platforms. In 2016, his solo music took a sudden turn from groovy teen pop towards romantic, ’90s pop-infused R&B, seeing him in recent collaboration with Grammy-nominated musicians, namely Hardwell, Flo Rida, Chris Brown, 2 Chainz and Pitbull.
Now all grown up, Mahone now has a loyal fan base he has built over the years. There are more complex stories to be told, thus supplying his reinvention era with boundless sonic potential.
On February 4, 2019, Mahone signed on to Elektra Records. He released a new single written by Charlie Puth titled “Why Don’t We,” which easily accumulated more than 7 million streams on Spotify.
On June 19, 2019, Mahone released a fresh summer anthem “Dancing With Nobody” produced by Ian Kirkpatrick and written by Sam Martin and Lindy Robbins. Mahone said he wanted the song to be “a fun, upbeat song that will make everyone feel that they just can’t help but get up and dance.”
“Dancing With Nobody” has since racked up over 3 million Spotify streams shaping 2019 to be the biggest year of his career. Mahone’s other hits include “What About Love,” “Creatures of the Night,” “Send It” featuring Rich Homie Quan, “Shadow,” “Lady” featuring Pitbull and “Say Hi,” among others.
Mahone’s upcoming concert in the Philippines is titled “Austin Mahone Live in Manila 2019.” It is presented by Ovation Productions, which is on its 40th year promoting the biggest names in live entertainment, in cooperation with TAP Edge: The Home of Live Action Sports.
