  • Canada truly embraces diversity and two of its world-renowned leaders emphasized this as they ushered in 2017.

    On the eve of the beginning of the of the 150th anniversary of Canada – also known as the sesquicentennial anniversary of Canadian Confederation – no less than Queen Elizabeth II, the Queen of United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and Canada, praised the nation for having “earned a reputation as a welcoming, respectful and compassionate country.”  The Queen encouraged everybody “to continue to embody the values of equality, freedom and inclusion” and “to remind the world of the importance of protecting those values and of passing them on to future generations.”

    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau echoed the same sentiments and sent a powerful statement to the nation: “Together, I know we will continue to build the diverse and prosperous country that we are all so proud to call home.”

    Today, in a country where one out of 5 people is foreign born, almost a million Filipinos call Canada their new home even as they continue to honor their Filipino roots and heritage.

    It is in this spirit and context thatABS-CBN’s TFC Live is bringing its most successful touring Filipino concert that showcases the best of Filipino talent and entertainment.

    Come July 29, 2017, Saturday, at the storied Ricoh Coliseum -– a venue where a vast range of musical icons from Jimi Hendrix to Pitbull have performed – “ASAP Live in Toronto” promises to be the biggest and grandest Filipino event to celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary.

    There are great expectations for“ASAP Live in Toronto” as its reputation precedes it. “ASAP” is the longest running, most successful weekend variety show that airs live on Philippine television.  It is produced by ABS-CBN, the world’s largest Filipino-owned media and entertainment network.  In 2012, “ASAP turned into an international giant touring live event when it brought about 40 stars to Singapore’s MAX Pavilion EXPO.  Since then, “ASAP Live” has travelled to Dubai Festival City, Los Angeles Sports Arena, London’s The SSE Arena, Wembley, and New York’s Barclays Center, selling out back-to-back concerts in those venues.

    Yes, that’s right: back-to-back concerts in one night.  Part of the unique and tremendous value of an “ASAP Live” show is that ticket holders get to see not one, but TWO world-class concerts in one show because both concerts become two full episodes that will be aired exclusively by ABS-CBN in the Philippines and on TFC worldwide.So, yes, get ready to be part of “ASAP Live” on television!

    And for the first time ever, on the same day of the concert, ABS-CBN TFC Live will include a Filipino-Canadian Marketplace, that will unveil export quality Filipino products, delightful Filipino food and unique interactive activities for the entire family.  This expo allows ticket buyers to enjoy a full day of interesting offerings prior to the main concert.

    Everyone is also encouraged to download the TFC Live App for a full experience that allows ticket buyers to see and navigate through the complete breadth of activities that include contests, games, freebies and exciting prizes.  They can also connect with fellow attendees by using the handy networking features of the app.
