And the rumors have officially began…

While there have been whispers here and there of the inclusion of Manila in the Southeast Asia leg of Madonna‘s Rebel Heart Tour, an Inquirer article ‘sorta’ confirms the rumor:

Promoters are said to be deciding soon whether SM Mall of Asia (MOA) Arena or the Philippine Arena would be the best venue for the impending concert of pop goddess Madonna early next year, at least two sources told the Inquirer.

If it’s MOA Arena—whose capacity for concerts is about 12,000—the concert might be held for two successive nights, just like the Lady Gaga gigs in 2012.

The Philippine Arena could be a better choice, considering its 55,000 capacity. But traffic going in and out of the venue is a serious matter that needs immediate fixing.

In any case, either MOA or Philippine Arena would be no problem for longtime fans of the “Queen of Pop,” who is revered for her constant reinvention of her music and image.

Fingers crossed… 🙂
