MANILA - Actor Daniel Padilla shared his excitement over his second major concert next month.
The show, billed as "Dos: The Daniel Padilla Birthday Concert," will be held at the Araneta Coliseum on April 30.
"Siyempre may pressure. Ito na naman 'yung kaba nararamdaman ko na naman, concert na naman at panibagong kanta na naman maririnig dito. Ang saya na naman. Pero siyempre lahat ay gagawin natin para mapaganda," Padilla said Thursday during the press conference for his concert.
"Siyempre kumbaga na-experience ko na 'yung una, alam ko na ang dapat at 'di dapat gawin sa Araneta. Ngayon ay inaayos na po namin at pinapaganda namin. Alam na po ang bagsakan at kailan ang pasok, 'yun po ang preparations," he added.
Asked if he could now say that he is a better singer, Padilla said: "Hindi naman po, siguro mas kumapal lang ang mukha ko. Siguro mas kumportable lang po kaysa noong una."
Despite his successful show last year and his upcoming one, Padilla still does not consider himself a concert artist.
"Hindi naman po, hindi ko naman iniisip na concert, concert, kumbaga kabayaran ito sa mga supporters natin. Ito 'yung moment para magkita-kita kaming lahat," he explained.
Joining Padilla in his second concert are singers Rico Blanco and Khalil Ramos, his band Parking 5 and The Reo Brothers, siblings from Tacloban who survived the onslaught of super typhoon Yolanda (international name Haiyan).
Padilla also confirmed that his rumored girlfriend and leading lady, Kathryn Bernardo, will also be part of his show.
"Opo, kakanta po siya," said Padilla, who will turn 19 on April 26.
