A1 fell in love with the Philippines upon their very first visit, now four years since their last appearance, A1 are heading back for their “Here We Come-Back!” Tour, a two-night show scheduled for Manila and Cebu, dedicated for their loyal Pinoy fans, who always remained in close contact with the band via their social media accounts.
A1, the British-Norwegian band, consists of Ben Adams, Mark Read and Christian Ingebrigtsen and had their first breakthrough in the UK in 1999 with a collection of hit singles taken from their debut album.
They went on to have many international Top 10 and number 1 hits including Caught in The Middle, Same Old Brand New You, their cover of the A-Ha classic Take On Me, Everytime, Like a Rose and Heaven by Your Side, to name only a few.
A1 also achieved massive success in the UK, Europe and across Asia, including a Brit Award for 'Best British Breakthrough Act' in 2001 and with 5 studio albums and a greatest hits, they have totted up over 10 million record sales worldwide.
Originally a quartet, A1 enjoyed considerable success from late 90’s to early 2000s that they decided to get together seven years after their split to compete in the competition to represent Norway for “2010 Eurovision Song Contest” with Don’t Wanna Lose You Again.
In February 2012, A1 performed with Blue and Jeff Timmons of 98 Degrees in “The Greatest Hits Tour,” which took them to Singapore, Philippines and Indonesia. They loved their two-week stay and charity work here that they held a benefit show in November for the underprivileged kids of Cebu.
The following year, A1 appeared in the TV documentary The Big Reunion along with Blue, Five, Damage, 3T, 911, Girl Thing and 5th Story and went on a UK tour. The boys also worked on their album and released “Waiting for Daylight” and “Rediscovered” in UK last June 2015. Their comeback concert this year will kick off on October 22 in Singapore.
