 The world-class venue, Mall of Asia Arena finally holds its Grand Launch last June 16, 2012 in a music event called "ICONS at the MALL OF ASIA ARENA."
June 16 is truly historical not only because of the grand launch but also some of the biggest names in the Philippine Music Industry performed in one roof for a night.

Christian Bautista and The Company performed the legendary music of Mr. Jose Mari Chan. I really admire JMC because of his heart-melting songs.Rachel Alejandro, Dulce & Vernie Varga belted Louie Ocampo's songs. Freddie Aguilar performed his phenomenal song "ANAK" which is heard in 56 countries in 26 languages.Next in line's the most applauded & cheered numbers by Richard PoonJuris Fernandez, Piolo Pascual & of course "The Voice", Jed Madela, who sang the songs of the singer-songwriter, Ogie Alcasid. This may sound bias but I think Jed Madela's performance last night's the best among the Icons.

The president of OPM, Ogie Alcasid, whose songs were heard on several teleseryes, shared the stage together with his wife, "The Asia's Songbird", Regine Velasquez a medley of his songs--Hanggang Ngayon, Kailangan Ko'y Ikaw, Pangarap ko ang Ibigin ka & Magpakailan Pa Man.

Bamboo rocked the Arena backed-up with the G-Force. Followed by Pinoy pride/s Arnel Pineda & Lea Salonga. I love Lea's Til I Met You. It actually hit me. Anyways.. Arnel and Lea had a duet. They sang "You" by the classic Basil Valdez. Filling the venue with so much love are Erik Santos, Martin Nievera & the Basil Valdez. Gary Valenciano wasn't able to go at the Arena but he prepared a VTR song for Mr. Henry Sy Sr,. The once-in-a-lifetime concert was hosted by Jim Paredes and Pops Fernandez as well as comic TV personalities PokwangJose Manalo and Wally Bayola.

The MOA Arena has 20, 000 full seating capacity, Corporate Suites, VIP-level services and amenities, and a vast offering of food & merchandise. The Arena also has dedicated parking lots for guests that can carry 2,000 cars at the same time. SM MOA Arena is really changing the game and is posed to become the country's premier entertainment venue.

True to its vision of Changing the Game, Elevating Entertainment, the Mall of Asia Arena will truly be a world-class venue for the Filipino people.
