HE is one of the hottest young male stars in showbiz today, and has achieved a lot of things in his young life. But what is fascinating about him is that he remains true to his core. He remains true to his goodness while being imperfect—which is okay. Who am I talking about? He’s none other than Daniel Padilla.
Daniel has two exciting projects coming up: The House Arrest of Us, a digital comedy program that reunites him with on-screen and off-screen partner Kathryn Bernardo; and Apollo: A Daniel Padilla Digital Experience happening already this Sunday, October 11.
The latter is produced by ABS-CBN’s Star Events and Daniel’s own production house, Johnny Moonlight, and the producers promised that with this event, Daniel will be ready to take his fans to a gig like no other and highlight his exciting evolution as a concert performer throughout the years.
Apollo will be Daniel’s first-ever digital show featuring his musical journey from the time he headlined his first solo concert, Daniel: Live!, in 2013 to his last major gig, D4, held in 2018. The journey will be narrated through some of his music, favorite classics, and today’s hottest hits.
Joining the “Mabagal” singer as special guest is the band Jose Carlito, led by frontman and Daniel’s brother JC Padilla (who really has grown as a musician from his Park 5 days).
What makes Apollo: A Daniel Padilla Digital Experience a special one is the amount of effort that Daniel himself has poured into the project. Daniel had a say from the concept to the repertoire, even the pricing of the tickets (less than P500). He wanted the ticket price to be affordable so that more fans can get to join him virtually because he thinks that this is his way of making people feel better, despite the hardships and negativity brought about by the current pandemic.
In fact, Daniel wants the experience to be a holistic one for his fans—that after the concert, they will have a renewed sense of hope and positivity. That even for awhile, they can forget their problems and just enjoy his concert with the company of other people looking for a respite.
Apollo: A Daniel Padilla Digital Experience is the first of many exclusive virtual gigs Star Events is coming up with to give ABS-CBN fans extraordinary musical experiences online with their favorite performers in place of live events. The concert is part of ABS-CBN’s latest digital entertainment experience offerings for fans after the successful launch of Kapamilya Online Live. It also follows the feat of previous KTX.ph virtual events, such as Hello Stranger: The Finale Fancon, Jed Madela’s New Normal, JaMill’s “Tayo Hanggang Dulo,” and K Brosas’s 20k20.
Tickets for Apollo are available at www.ktx.ph.
Besides Daniel’s concert, another major event for ABS-CBN fans is happening this weekend.
