After a long four year hiatus, Daniel Caesar made his heavily anticipated return to the Philippines for his SUPERPOWERS WORLD TOUR on July 19. The one night special, which went down at the Manila World Trade Center, also appropriately featured local singer Jason Dhakal setting the tone as an opening act. After the “Body & Soul” & "Manila" artist warmed up the crowd, the sold out audience waited in excitement for the Toronto native crooner’s entrance.
Daniel Caesar fittingly began his set with “Ocho Rios,” the lead off track from his most recently released album “NEVER ENOUGH.” His hour-long set ran through crowd favorites from his latest project like: “Do You Like Me?” and “Let Me Go” — but no songs received better fan-fare than “Valentina” and “Always.” In addition to performing his newer material, Caesar went deep in his catalog to perform classic records like: “Streetcar,” “Japanese Denim,” “CYANIDE,” and more.
Perhaps the concert’s two highlights were “Best Part,” which included a proposal in the audience mid-song. Daniel Caesar also came back from for an encore and closed out his set with a show-stopping crowd assisted rendition of “Get You.” During the show, he promised to come back to the Philippines soon and we can’t wait for new music and his return here!
