MANILA -- It's finally happening. 

The TNT Boys, composed of Kiefer Sanchez, Mackie Empuerto and Francis Concepcion, will have their first major concert at the Araneta Coliseum on November 30.

The concert has been billed as "Listen: The Bigshot Concert." 

In an interview with ABS-CBN News on Wednesday, the trio admitted that they feel nervous performing in a big venue like the Big Dome.

"Sobrang kinakabahan kasi Big Dome na po 'yon. Tapos marami pong manonood. Lalo na po kung na-sold out 'yan. Kaya dapat po ay bumili na kayo ng ticket," Empuerto said.

"Marami pa po kaming makakasama at marami pa po kayong makikita na hindi pa po namin ipinapakita na talento po na gagawin namin sa concert namin," he added.

Joining them as guest artists are K Brosas, Jed Madela and their fellow "Your Face Sounds Familiar Kids 2018" performers Chunsa Jung, Esang de Torres, Krystal Brimmer, Noel Comia Jr., Onyok Pineda, Sheena Belarmino and Xia Vigor.
 
"At marami pa pong kanta na kakantahin namin na hindi pa po namin nakakanta ever," Concepcion said.

"Ang makikita niyong TNT Boys ay ibang-iba po hindi kagaya noon, ibang-iba po talaga," Sanchez added.

If given a chance, the trio said they want to perform with their favorite OPM artists in their concert. 

"Ako po si Sarah Geronimo, kasi siya ang Beyonce ng Pilipinas," 
Empuerto said.

"Ako po si Morissette Amon kasi po sobrang idol na idol ko po siya," Sanchez shared.

"Ako po si Ate Bituin Escalante," Concepcion wished.

Just recently, the trio performed for Singapore President Halimah Yacob at the President's Star Charity 2018.

They are also set to join an international singing competition in the United States.

Given their blessings, the TNT Boys are giving back as they donated P50,000 to Bantay Bata 163.

They gave the donation after the press conference for their Araneta concert.

"Kaya po kami nag-donate sa Bantay Bata 163 kasi gusto po naming i-share ang blessings namin sa mga batang kaparehas naming nangangarap," Empuerto said.

Present during the turnover of donation was Bantay Bata Program director Ging Castañeda and ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation, Inc. managing director Susan Afan.

"Maraming salamat sa TNT Boys. Salamat sa inyong donasyon at higit sa lahat ay sa inyong pagiging huwaran sa ating kabataan ngayon," Castañeda said.

"Nagbibigay kayo ng pag-asa para sa mga kabataan na nangangarap na marating ang mas mataas at magandang hinaharap hindi lang para sa kanilang mga sarili, kung hindi para sa kanilang mga magulang. So kayo ang simbolo ngayon ng bagong kabataan." 

Castañeda also revealed that TNT Boys will be recording the theme song of Bantay Bata 163. 

"Ito po ay first time na maririnig sa kanilang concert," Castañeda added.
