As phenomenal P-pop group SB19 celebrates their third anniversary in the business, members Pablo, Josh, Stell, Ken, and Justin gear up for a two-day concert this weekend, November 27 and 28. Although the concert will be held virtually, via the streaming platform KTX.PH, SB19 will be doing the concert from the Araneta Coliseum.

“Super overwhelming and happy po kami na finally it’s happening na, na talagang matutuloy na po kami sa Araneta (Coliseum). Before nga po, parang nangangarap lang din po kami na sana di ba in the future, makapagperform tayo dito sa stage na ‘to,” Josh said.  


He added, “Kasi marami na po kaming napanood na concert sa Araneta (Coliseum) before and isa po kami sa parang ini-aim po namin na kahit ngayon na hindi pa po tayo fully ano, parang (Alert) level 2 pa lang po, di ba? So hindi pa po pwede ‘yung mga live audience. At least po, nandoon pa rin po kami sa stage na ‘yun at virtually mapapanood po nila kami. Sisiguraduhin naman po namin na parang worth it or worth the while ‘yung gagawin po namin na performances at mag-eenjoy po na parang live silang nanonood. Pero siyempre in the future, gusto po namin parang ulitin or ipakita talaga sa mga tao na live na live na po, nasa harap namin.”  

Meanwhile, the group’s “maknae” Justin gave a hint on what fans can expect from their concert.   

“Meron din kaming three new songs na ipeperform dito sa concert na ‘to so we’re very excited and looking forward to it,” he said,  

Pablo, who writes songs for the group, elaborated, “’Yung three new songs po namin, siyempre po, iba iba po ‘yung genre niya. Mayroon ballad. Mayroon naman pong parang gospel type na parang happy happy lang. Tapos ‘yung last one naman po, medyo retro ‘yung datingan. May pagka-‘70s disco vibe, ganyan. 

“Talagang ginawa po namin, especially ‘yung tatlong kanta kasi nga po third year anniversary na po namin. So, we made sure na dito sa Our Zone concert, may makikita silang bago, hindi lang ‘yung mga previous songs na narelease po namin.”  

Having been in the industry for three years now, SB19 was asked on how much they think they have grown through the years.  

Stell said, “As a performer po, feeling ko sobrang nag-grow po talaga kami. Kasi before, sa pagkakaalala ko po, when we prepare something, talagang kailangan namin ng mahabang time. Kailangan namin ng mahabang oras, months talaga ‘yung inaabot para makapagbigay ng pulido at solidong performance. Kasi dati talagang nangangapa pa po kami. Hindi namin alam anong gagawin. Wala pa kaming tunog dati, kung anu-ano lang po ‘yung gagawin namin para may maperform. 

“Pero ngayon, siguro masasabi namin na nahanap na talaga namin ‘yung sound ng SB19. And dahil dun, nag-grow po kami talaga eh. ‘Nung nahanap na po namin ‘yung sarili namin, ‘yung group namin, ‘yung SB19, mas madali na po kaming nakakapagproduce ng something kasi alam na po namin kung ano talaga ‘yung kaya naming ibigay.” 

Dubbed as the SB19 Our Zone 2021: Anniversary Concert, the virtual event will comprise of two shows with different programs, on November 27 and 28, both at 5 pm, Philippine time. 

There are five ticket tiers to choose from, which are all available for purchase at KTX.PH and www.sb19ozone.com.

SB19 is behind chart-topping hits like “Go Up”, “Alab”, “What?”, and “MAPA.” Just recently, they released the official music video for their new song “Bazinga,” which easily garnered more than a million views on YouTube.
