NEW YORK – “Beyond the Stars,” a two-hour concert extravaganza to entertain audiences in New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, will be held beginning August 6 in celebration of Star Magic’s 30th anniversary. The brightest upcoming teen celebrities will perform for the global audience in this long-awaited U.S. tour, which marks TFC Live events’ return this August with back-to-back-to-back shows.
“After two years of global uncertainty and we have endured, now it’s time to celebrate,” Star Magic head Lauren Dyogi said during the North America media conference that launched “Beyond the Stars.” Dyogi added the Star Magic U.S. tour is their way of reconnecting with the Filipino community in North America and thanking them for their unwavering support.” “Beyond the Stars” is a testament to the tenacity and creativity displayed by the artists to remain relevant and to continue to hone their craft, even during the lockdown.
The shows also allow audiences to get up close and witness the talent of the younger and newer ABS-CBN artists in person since they have only seen their performances on the screen and digitally. Star Magic’s newest stars will have the chance to share the stage with longtime idols in front of U.S. audiences.
Headliners include fresh singer-songwriters Angela Ken, Janine Berdin, Lian Kyla, Sab, and Gigi De Lana; the hottest love teams of Belle Mariano and Donny Pangilinan – also known as DonBelle, and Alexa Ilacad and KD Estrada – often referred to with the portmanteau KDLex; all-around performers AC Bonifacio, Andrea Brillantes, Charlie Dizon, Kyle Echarri, Maris Racal, Maymay Entrata, Edward Barber; comedian Eric Nicolas; and fan favorites Zanjoe Marudo, Carlo Aquino, and Kim Chiu.
With an incredible line-up of 20 artists, there will be something for everyone at each of the “Beyond the Stars” shows.
Seasoned performer, Kim Chiu, who has been with Star Magic since 2006, affirms the joy of the group: “Hindi naman naluluma yung feeling namin to perform in front of our kababayans kase it always feels like home pag nagpeperform kami diyan. (It doesn’t get old performing for our fellowmen because it always feels like home.)
