“Thank you to all who have expressed support for this concert. Your immediate response was most encouraging.

Hello everyone. Due to the current situation regarding CoViD19, we have decided to postpone the concert PURE ENERGY 2020 to a later date this year. Thank you to all who have expressed support for this concert. Your immediate response was most encouraging. Our team received so many requests to purchase tickets and offers to sponsor the show, but the health and wellbeing of all our fans, our guests, our artists, musicians, dancers, and the production crew are my main priority. It pains us to make this difficult decision, but new learnings about this new virus call for us to be vigilant and sensitive, careful and prayerful. Once our new concert dates are set I will make sure to get the word out to everyone. I look forward to seeing all of you when we all finally come together for PURE ENERGY...One More Time 2020. Meantime, to my fans abroad in Canada and the USA, I will proceed with my concert tour dates in your cities as previously announced. God bless, protect, and keep us all safe.🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼

“It pains us to make this difficult decision, but new learnings about this new virus call for us to be vigilant and sensitive, careful and prayerful,” he added.

Billed as Gary’s final major concert, “Pure Energy” was scheduled on April 18-19 at the Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City.

The “Sana Maulit Muli” hitmaker has yet to announce the new schedule of the concert, but stated that it will take place “on a later date this year.”

Gary, however, will proceed with his concert tour in US and Canada on its original dates.
