MANILA, Philippines – A promotional video of an Aerosmith concert in Manila sent netizens abuzz on Tuesday, with most of them looking forward to seeing rock icon Steven Tyler and the rest of his band.

The video was uploaded on YouTube by concert organizer Pulp Live World, which announced that the concert will be held at the SM Mall of Asia Arena on May 8.

Several Filipinos took to Twitter to express their excitement over the said concert.

“So Aerosmith is coming to Manila. Amazing. Beautiful,” said blogger Professional Heckler.

“Wow sana 15 years ago,” senatorial candidate Sonny Angara replied to the humor blogger.

“OMG!!! AEROSMITH!!!” said former ABS-CBN host Kat de Castro.

“Be still, my heart!!!” said Aika Robredo, daughter of the late Interior and Local Government Secretary Jesse Robredo.

Pulp Live World said tickets to the Aerosmith concert will be on sale on SM Tickets starting Friday, March 8.

But the band’s official website, AeroForceOne, has yet to add Manila to its tour date for the next couple of months. The American rock band is set to perform in New Zealand on April 24 and 28; in Australia on May 1 and 4; and in Indonesia on May 11.
