International Filipino artist to perform in Kuwait

Filipino recording artist and lead singer of US-based band, ‘The Journey’, Arnel Pineda is set to go on stage at the Qadsia Gym on 15 November at 5pm.  His remarkable voice and striking stage performance has earned Pineda international recognition and fame.

The news of the concert has thrilled Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) in Kuwait, as well as members of foreign communities, who are fans and avid followers of the band ‘The Journey’ since early nineties.

Pineda is expected to sing from a repertoire of ‘Journey’ songs, original compositions and popular hits. Prior to his performance, he will indulge in an hour of raffles and games for the audience, with gifts provided by sponsors and a fifteen-minute dance show from Next Episode Dance Crew.

Pineda is set to arrive by the 13 November, 2019 and a lineup of activities has been laid out, which include courtesy calls to the Philippine Embassy, OWWA and POLO and a very personal performance for the wards of the shelter, meet and greet at the Radisson Blu Hotel, lunch and dinner at two Filipino restaurants and a stroll at the Avenues Mall. He is expected to leave immediately after the concert as Pineda will continue his concert tour in US and Europe.
