After being announced as one of Zsa Zsa Padilla’s special guests for her upcoming concert, Ian Veneracion said he has a busy couple of weeks ahead before he returns to the country. The actor-turned-singer revealed he is excited to be sharing the stage with a Grammy award-winning artist. “I’m leaving for Canada for four to five concerts back-to-back with Patti Austin. So nakaka-pressure kasi feeling ko parang principal mapagalitan ako pag nawala ako sa tono. I’m excited. Pag-uwi ko I’m doing this concert on May 16 and then sana this year madami pang music-related things for me,” he shared during the Totally Zsa Zsa! concert presscon held last April 12 in Pasay City.
Even though he has already staged his own concerts last year, Ian said he has to really level up his performance with a world-class artist. He first met Patti in the country during her concert with Jaya last December. “Excited and talagang pressured ako ngayon (laughs). Parang it’s the real deal. I’m bringing my whole band with me so I’m comfortable kasi I’ve been playing with them for a long time and alam na alam na namin yung vibe ng isa’t isa. So I’m really happy that I’m with my band. Kasi mas matatakot ako kung hindi ko banda yung nandun eh and then parang nangangapa ka lang. It’s a big deal for me,” he admitted.
Watch Ian perform at the Totally Zsa Zsa! concert at the Newport Performing Arts Theater in Resorts World Manila on May 16, Thursday. Tickets are now available at the RWM Box office and TicketWorld outlets.
