Following his first visit to Manila in May for a clothing brand endorsement, Joe Jonas will be joined by the other two thirds of the popular Disney-grown musical act, Kevin and Nick, to his second visit to the country.

The American boy band's Manila concert will see the real-life brothers' reunion as an act after a three-year absence from the music scene. According to the Philippine Daily Inquirer, the Jonas Brothers will perform on October 19 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

J.Lo in Manila

After expressing her excitement over a possible visit to Manila in May, Latin singer Jennifer Lopez will finally set foot in the Philippines for the first time for a one-night concert.

The Philippine Star reported that the former "Idol" judge, also known as J.Lo, has been confirmed to stage the Manila stop of her "J.Lo Dance Again World Tour" at the SM Mall Of Asia Arena on November 26.

Rock bands, Morrison

Also confirmed to visit Manila in the last quarter of the year are rock bands The Fray, Creed, and English singer-songwriter James Morrison.

Morrison will perform at the Smart Araneta Coliseum on October 9 as part of his world tour titled "The Awakening." He is known for the hits "You Give Me Something" and "Broken Strings."

The Fray will perform live at the same venue on November 10, while Creed will hold a show the night after.

Creed, an American rock band, is known for the hits "My Sacrifice" and "With Arms Wide Open," while The Fray is behind the songs "How to Save a Life" and "You Found Me."

Cinderella, Buzz Lightyear

The Big Dome will also serve as the venue where Disney characters Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse will "scout" for new talents among its kiddie audience.

In "Disney's Live! Mickey's Rockin Road Show," children will "[discover] friends like Tigger and the 'Toy Story' cast and Cinderella, and the second part they will come together and perform," according to Kerry Silson, who plays the character of Buzz Lightyear.

Billed as a "fun-filled road trip" that doubles as a talent search, "Rockin Road Show" will run from September 5 to 15 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
