Jack Jones concert set at the KIA Theatre on December 29 and 30

Celebrate the Yuletide season with music icon Jack Jones who is set to hold a two-night concert at the KIA Theatre (formerly New Frontier Theater), Araneta Center, on December 29 & 30, 8:00 in the evening.

Produced by ManCo Productions, Inc. and Royale Chimes Concerts and Events Inc., the show is entitled Jack Jones Sings Songs From The Heart”. This is Jack’s last concert in 2015 and he is excited to be doing it in the Philippines, a country very close to his heart.

“It is always a pleasure performing to the Filipino audience because of their love for music. There’s a lot of great singers as well so it’s like one sing-along party whenever I’m on stage trying to listen to them. I’m looking forward to this show because this is the first time I will be spending Christmas season, and almost New Year, in the Philippines. I heard that Filipinos are one of the best in celebrating this time of the year,” says the great singer.

And yes, Jack will perform his signature songs plus well-loved covers and tracks from his recently-released CD called Seriously Frank, an album which celebrates and pays tribute to what would have been the 100th birthday of THE Frank Sinatra.

Adding excitement to the show is special guest Jose Mari Chan. When Jack learned that his friend Jose Mari will be appearing in the show, he immediately called him and both agreed to do a very special production number. This will surely become one of the highlights of the show.

Another guest who will definitely light up the stage is Asia’s Got Talent second-runner up Gerphil Flores. For those who were not able to watch her in the said talent show, Gerphil’s most applauded performance is her rendition of the Jack Jones classic The Impossible Dream. Expect Gerphil, dubbed as Asia’s Golden Girl, to bring the house down with her operatic style of singing that even got the attention of famous composer David Foster who is one of the judges in Asia’s Got Talent.

Jack’s disarming smile, effortlessly engaging wit and vocal style stands alone, making him one of the greatest singers of all-time. Jack Jones is the very definition of a complete and total entertainer. The New York Times raves, “he is arguably the most technically accomplished male pop singer…”. Frank Sinatra even once said, “Jack Jones is one of the major singers of our time.”

Jack’s commitment to his art has earned him two Grammy’s for Best Pop Male Vocal Performance with his singles “Lollipops and Roses” by Anthony Velona and Bacharach/David’s “Wives and Lovers”. His release, Jack Jones Paints A Tribute To Tony Bennett, was nominated for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Performance. He was also nominated for “The Impossible Dream” and his recording of “Wives and Lovers” was nominated for Record of the Year. His hit records include “The Race Is On”, “Lady”, “Call Me Irresponsible”, “Love Boat”, “What I Did For Love”, to name a few. In April 1989, he was honored with his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

With over 50 recorded albums (17 of them charting Billboard’s Top 20) and consistently sold-out world tours, Jack Jones continues to charm audiences with his wit, sensitivity and vocal power.

“Bring the whole family to the show. We’ll make this an unforgettable Yuletide celebration. Let’s all have a great time,” the Total Entertainer says.
