ENTERTAINMENT: Pacquiao to have his first concert in September and it’s FREE


Looks like Manny Pacquiao is adding another achievement under his belt – he will be having his first solo concert at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City on September 1.

The champion boxer/senator announced about this huge musical event during a press conference held at a hotel in Makati City. “This is a wonderful opportunity to share with my fans my passion for music. That’s the problem – I love music but music doesn’t love me. But I keep on going,” he said.

“My fans don’t have to pay for anything,” he added. More information on how to score free tickets will be announced later.

Pacquiao is not new in the music scene. He has already released several songs in the past. This upcoming concert marks his return into the music world.

“Actually, I already stopped singing 8-9 years ago. So I consider this as a comeback,” he said.

Pacquiao will be joined by several undisclosed artists in his concert according to his business manager, Arnold Vegafria.

Vegafria also mentioned that it is possible other Asian stars will join the Pambansang Kamao in his concert. Moreover, he said that it might be broadcasted in other Asian countries.

“I need to have duets because it’s difficult to sing many songs alone,” Pacquiao added.

The upcoming concert is produced by Global Crypto Offering Exchange (GCOX) and in partnership with ALV Events International. Apparently, the event will also serve as the platform where they will launch the PAC Token, a personalized token which will transform the popularity of Pacman into crypto tokens which are quantifiable and exchangeable.

Millions of fans will now be able to get closer to Pacquiao by having access to this fan-celebrity platform powered by GCOX, said Sir Dr. Jeffrey Lin, CEO GCOX.

“While Senator Manny is busy serving his people, we hope to help him reach out to his fans and engage them regularly. By having this PAC Tokens, they become a privileged group who will have the opportunities to connect with him on a whole new level,” said Lin.

“Through this robust ecosystem, I will be able to help my fans save money while promoting good value products and driving merchants who support me. Everybody wins in this ecosystem. This is my opportunity to give back to the community that has made me who I am today,” Pacquiao said.

Fans will be able to download a new fan-celebrity edutainment mobile application this September to connect directly with their favorite celebrities, including Pacman himself.

GCOX is the world’s first platform of its kind where celebrities and brands are able to capitalize on blockchain technology.
