Chris Botti to Perform in Manila with Special Guest, Sting!

November 17, 2015

Premier entertainment and tourism destination Resorts World Manila (RWM), in cooperation with Hi Definition Radio Inc, continues its quest to host world-class attractions as it proudly brings you “CHRIS BOTTI Featuring special guest, STING: Up Close and Personal” on March 3, 2016, 8:45PM at the recently opened Marriott Grand Ballroom. This exclusive and limited VIP-seating show marks the first time Chris Botti and Sting will perform in the Philippines together and RWM presents fans with a once in a lifetime opportunity to witness a stellar performance by these two Grammy Award-winning artists by being one of 60 guests to sit at the exclusive “stage seats” just a breath away from the stars.

Since the release of his 2004 critically acclaimed CD When I Fall In Love, Chris Botti has become the largest-selling American instrumental artist. His success has crossed over to audiences usually reserved for pop muisc and his ongoing association with PBS has led to four #1 jazz albums, as well as multiple Gold, Platinum and Grammy Awards. Most recently, his latest album Impressions won the Grammy for Best Pop Instrumental Album at the 2013 55th Grammy Awards. Performing worldwide and selling more than four million albums, he has found a form of creative expression that begins in jazz and expands beyond the limits of any single genre.

“This concert has a unique value proposition,” said Martin Paz, Chief Integrated Marketing Officer, Resorts World Manila. “Unlike other shows with VIP seating that are typically restricted to front row seats, meet-and-greets, or autograph signing sessions, we now take things to a whole new level wherein those in stage seats get to watch the concert on the stage itself and just a breath away from the artists.”

Ticket prices start at Php11,000 for Bronze, Php17,000 for Silver, Php28,000 for Gold, Php34,000 for VIP, Php40,000 for SVIP, and Php60,000 for Stage Seats. As the Marriott Grand Ballroom has a 3,180 seat capacity for this intimate show, which is relatively limited compared to arena concerts, tickets are expected to sell out quickly due to the unique opportunity it presents Botti and Sting fans.

Citi Credit Cards clients may take advantage of a 10% discount on ticket prices to the highly-anticipated concert during the pre-sale running until November 30, 2015. Prepare for a memorable night of world-class jazz and rock music from these iconic artists. Reserve your discounted tickets to “Chris Botti featuring special guest, Sting, Up Close and Personal” at all TicketWorld outlets or through using your valid Citi credit or debit cards.
