Benson said that he is happy to be back in the country, and excited to perform for his Filipino fans and supporters.

"I love the Philippines. People are very warm. They've always been good to me, and I'm very happy to be back playing some music for them," Benson said.

Benson also promised that concert goers will have a fun time watching their performance since they are ready to put on a good show.
 
"This time I will be with the great master Al Jarreau and we are gonna put up a show you will not believe," he added.

Jarreau said that he is expecting a wonderful concert.

"We had a beautiful tour so far and I expect it to be more even now," he said.
