The country’s two most popular heartthrobs, Piolo Pascual and Sam Milby, will grace the free concert dubbed the The Dream Concert Tour 2007, featuring the winners of Pinoy Dream Academy (PDA) competition, on March 1 at the Shinjuku Bunka Center in Tokyo.

 

The musical extravaganza will jumpstart ABS-CBN’s latest market offering, TFCko or video-on-demand, via broadband internet in Japan. TFCko is the latest innovation from ABS-CBN Global that allows you to view TFC programs through the same technology that delivers internet service at home.

Included among the performers to this concert are the country’s youngest crop of vocal entertainers: Yeng Constantino, the PDA Grand Star Dreamer, Irish Fullerton, Ronnie Liang, Chad Peralta, Jay-R Siaboc and Panky Trinidad. The six are the top contenders among twenty finalists who were cloistered for four months as scholars inside the Academy to train as multimedia performers.

Similar in format to the Big Brother, where Filipino-American Sam Milby was discovered in 2005, PDA is the Philippine version of Netherland’s Star Academy aired by the TV station Endemol.

Better known for his dramatic roles in a string of soap operas and in the blockbuster Milan, Piolo Pascual has also shown musical flair as a member of the all-male band Hunks and later on as a solo balladeer. He has even filled Araneta Coliseum to the hilt in a solo concert in 2004.

ABS-CBN is launching its broadcast content via broadband, a high-speed internet connection, which is becoming the norm in web usage all over the world.

The gates will open at 6:30 PM and admission will be on a first-come first-served basis.
