Salamat Manila! Mahal Ko Kayo
Aloha Archies! Let’s start off your Saturday with not one, but five lead pics! Why? Because WE CAN! This Manila tour has blessed us with an embarrassment of riches in the form of fan pics & vids – so let’s enjoy the wealth and celebrate an over-the-top-amazing concert tour!
Before the ArchuBlues start hitting us too hard, there’s still plenty to enjoy about this wonderful Manila Tour. It was billed as a single concert, but in reality it was a week-long celebration of David’s return to the Phils after six long years.
Packed with TV appearances, interviews and fan functions, our ArchuCups truly runneth over! Here’s a roundup of items that didn’t make it into the earlier posts – cause we don’t want to miss a thing!
Since every single fan in the Philippines owns a hi-def magic camera, we have been blessed with an abundance of concert footage from fans in the front row to those whose vantage point gave them an overhead view of the stage. Here’s a sampling of what’s out there, though there are far too many vids to post here – check You Tube, Twitter, IG and FB for threads chock-full of amazing vids! Grab a drink and some snacks, cause it’s going to be awhile!
I love this vid from Mykapalaran that captured the reunion of David and Kari with the cast of Nandito Ako. It has the long anticipated hug between David and Jasmine as they meet again after six years!

The set list featured 18 songs (19 if you count the mashup as 2 songs) consisting of 5 new songs from Postcards in the Sky, 7 older “fan favorites”, 3 covers and 4 OPM songs. We’re going to share a sampling of the vids available across social media, so please feel free to check out fan You Tube, twitter and IG accounts for more!
All these vids show that the Phils fans know all the words to every single song! And when David forgets some words for a moment, the fans assist him by singing along!

It’s amazing what can be accomplished with a guitarist, a pianist, a music track and amazing lighting! It’s a full blown concert experience!

Promo & Buzz
Would love to know how this adventure for Spanish food turned out – was David recognized? Was he mobbed? Did Kari have to save him? Did Brady get any Jollibee chicken? Inquiring minds want to know!

Sellersville Fan Lunch Update
Sellersville is up next! October 25th the Leo/Postcards Tour starts back up in the USA, and there’s an update for the fan lunch:
Well that’s a wrap for Manila Memories – it’s been a wild and crazy week full of fun and good times for the Pinoy fans! Philippines you did the fandom proud and David was so happy he was actually glowing! The bar has been raised! So when David returns to the USA to continue his tour, Archies need to show up and REPRESENT!
Start learning the words to all the songs on Postcards in the Sky, because when David holds out that mic to the audience, we all want to sing along!
Question: Were Jasmine and David rocking twin denim jackets?
Every fangirl’s dream….
