After a sold-out run in The Theatre at Solaire Resort in October, Becoming Ice: The 35th Anniversary Concert will do an encore at the Pacific Grand Ballroom, Waterfront Cebu Hotel and Casino in Cebu City on February 18.

Fire and Ice Media and Productions announced the versatile performer’s milestone concert repeat fresh from the heels of its wins and nominations at this year’s Aliw Awards, where the concert bagged the Best Stage Direction for a Concert plum for Ice Seguerra and Best Musical Direction for Ivan Lee Espinosa.

The event marked the multi-platinum artist’s return after a 10-year hiatus from doing major solo concerts.

Its success has inspired its repeat in other venues across the country, beginning with the Queen City of the South, Cebu City. Other venues will be announced soon.

Becoming Ice sings the songs of Seguerra’s stellar career from child actor to singer-composer, to director — the soundtrack of his journey, which also became a part of the soundtrack of many Filipinos’ lives, including the phenomenal hits Pagdating ng Panahon and Anong Nangyari sa Ating Dalawa.

His 35-year career in the movies and music, and now also in media production, has cemented his name as a pop culture reference and icon transcending age groups.

Seguerra shares, “I’m very excited to go to Cebu because the last time I did a major concert was in 2014 pa. It was back-to-back with Jake Zyrus. I love the Cebuanos kasi sobrang appreciative sila for good music. Pero discerning sila kaya medyo nakakakaba din. Becoming Ice is very personal to me because it’s really like a documentary of my years in the business but with live concert elements… kakaiba talaga.

“For the concert in Cebu, may mga mababago ng konti sa show. It’s gonna be a different experience from the one I did in Manila. Mas localized sya. I will be performing with Cebuano musicians and artists.”

Fire and Ice Media and Productions, led together by actress and film advocate Liza Dino-Seguerra and Ice, will be producing the concert and promises to take the audience to an immersive experience of music and memories, and an intimate peek at Seguerra’s life from his beginnings as a child star playing in more than 60 films and television shows, his new path in music, embracing his identity and finding love.

Becoming Ice concert series is brought to you by Fire and Ice Media and Production in cooperation with Nathan Studios and in partnership with Katinko.

The event is also sponsored by Waterfront Cebu, Unilab, and Globe and supported by Sunstar Cebu, 93.9 iFM, 97.9 Love Radio, and magic 92.3 Cebu as media partners.

Tickets are available at SM Tickets Online.
