With fans looking forward to watching local folk pop band Ben&Ben perform live before they leave for their US and Canada concert tour later this month, many were disappointed after their send-off concert was cancelled last September 3 due to bad weather conditions caused by typhoon Hinnamnor. On September 8, the band announced the new date for their concert in Manila which is now happening on December 16, Friday.

In a previous interview with PUSH, Ben&Ben shared just how serious they are when it comes to making music that makes a difference in this world.

“There is definitely an important sense of responsibility with the messages we include in our songs. We always try our best to make sure our music not only uplifts our listeners, but also accompanies them in the difficult things we all go through every day. For us, as much as our platform is a big responsibility, it is also such a privilege to have this kind of impact on the lives of our listeners,” they shared. 

Ben&Ben are scheduled to perform on September 24 in Vermont Hollywood in Los Angeles, October 1 at the McEwann Ballroom in Calgary, Canada, October 14 at the North Shore Center for the Performing Arts in Chicago, and at the Lisner Auditorium in Washington D.C. on October 15. The band has announced that they will also be performing in Edmonton, Vancouver, and Toronto for the Canada leg of their North America Tour.
