Aside from Swing Out Sister, another favorite of mine is Basia, who sang hits like Promises, Time and Tide, and many others. I also personally like Copernicus and Until You Come Back to Me, which is a remake of the Aretha Franklin classic.
My dream has always been to see Swing Out Sister and Basia perform in one concert. And truth be told, they almost did! A producer had intended to book them for one show early this decade. But from what I understand and recall, it did not push push through because of the security concerns in the country during those times.
Well, SOS did come to the Philippines last year. And now, Basia, too, is coming!
Mark your calendars! Basia’s Manila concert is on October 21 (Wedensday) at 8:30 p.m. at the Araneta Colliseum . Tickets available at Ticketnet. I CAN’T WAIT!
will there be a mall tour for Basia? like meet and greet.. i want to meet her too, like corrine drewery of swing out sister.
Basia performed at the Folk Arts Theater for two nights back in October 1990. I caught the first night and she was just amazing. I hope to catch her again next week.
