HORI7ON set the stage on fire with their passion at their first concert in Manila, and shared a wonderful night with their ever-supportive fans.
In another grand milestone, seven-member all-Filipino global pop group HORI7ON held their first ever concert titled Friend-SHIP [Voyage To Manila] last September 9, and it was full of stellar performances, surprise appearances, emotional moments, and instances that made both the group’s and fans’ night one to remember forever.
“It was a dream come true,” the members said. Vinci, Kim, Kyler, Reyster, Winston, Jeromy, and Marcus gave their all into their first concert. As they made the night their own, they showed a love for music, each other, their identity, and their beloved ANCHORs. Whether you weren’t there or you simply want to relive the night, here are a few highlights from their epic #VoyageToManila!
A KILLER OPENER
These ANCHORs’ reactions say it all! HORI7ON performed the first song in their debut album Friend-Ship as their concert opening. The hip-hop track Meteor was intense and powerful, perfect for setting the stage on fire and an indication of how fun the show was going to be.
HYPED COLLABS WITH GUESTS
One of my most favorite performances from last night. How You Feel is super LSS. Ha-eun is so good – love her now. Our 09z are super unbelievable too. Perfect match indeed.💖✨#HORI7ON_1STCON #HORI7ON_VoyageToManila #VoyageToManila #Friend_SHIP pic.twitter.com/DerWfZHYYo— CHAHlee 🏼💙✨⚓️ (@ChahleeH7ON) September 9, 2023
HORI7ON brought some guest stars to the stage last Saturday! From former Dream Maker alumni, members of boyband TFN, and Lapillus’ Haeun, Voyage to Manila was brimming with talent and friendship—as you can see from Jeromy and Marcus’ fun unit performance with the Lapillus member.
Let’s go HORI7ON! GENTO! GENTO! GENTO!👊🏼✨— CHAHlee 🏼💙✨⚓️ (@ChahleeH7ON) September 10, 2023
HORI7ON look up to SB19 a lot and surprised Anchors with their cover of Gento. Grabeeeeeee 👏🏼#HORI7ON_1STCON #HORI7ON_VoyageToManila #VoyageToManila #Friend_SHIP pic.twitter.com/hpnQ2OpHCf
HORI7ON surprised fans with K-Pop covers like SEVENTEEN’s Super, TXT’s Sugar Rush Ride, and Stray Kids’ S-Class, but they also paid tribute to P-pop boyband SB19 as they performed the hugely popular Gento, to the excitement of both ANCHORs and A’TIN.
FORMER DREAM CHASERS SHOWING THEIR SUPPORT
Former contestants on the reality show that formed HORI7ON showed their support for the band as they danced along to their song Take My Hand, proving a strong bond formed by their unique experience. And FYI, some of these former contestants are now trainees for Asterisk Entertainment’s upcoming P-pop group!
LEADER VINCI TRYING TO ROUND UP HIS MEMBERS
The stress of being the leader is evermore. HORI7ON leader Vinci tried his best to round up his members on stage as they were running all over the place, telling them “enough with this chaos!” Well, we’re glad they’re having fun. Good luck Vinci!
HORI7ON TRYING THEIR BEST FOR THEIR FANS
YALL THEY TRIED THEIR BEST TO MAKE THIS ANCHOR POSE FOR US. I LUV THEM SM pic.twitter.com/fNzGAOUFL7— Wins7onStanZone (@Wins7onZ) September 9, 2023
If you can’t distinguish the shape HORI7ON is trying to make just from those photos, that’s an anchor. The members tried their best to arrange themselves into the logo symbolizing their fandom, and they did pretty well!
ANCHOR’S OCEAN WAVE
The community aspect of concerts is one of the most enjoyable parts of the fandom experience! Doing the wave is such a concert staple, and even if it was their first concert with the boys as well, ANCHORs clearly had a lot of fun.
A SWEET FATHER-SON MOMENT
can someone send this to jiro’s parents? please! this is a father and son moment right here #HORI7ON #호라이즌#HORI7ON_1STCON#Friend_SHIP#VoyageToManila#HORI7ON_JEROMY#JEROMY #호라이즌_제로미 #제로미 pic.twitter.com/epLVKVvJ0p— jin saw txt & hori7on 🎐 (@vincimochi) September 9, 2023
Jeromy throwing confetti towards the audience was already adorable, but him running towards his dad with open arms and that expression and then his dad high-fiving him is incredibly heartwarming. It’s a wonderful indication of love and support in this life-changing moment in the boys’ life.
AN EMOTIONAL GROUP HUG
As Friend-SHIP [Voyage To Manila] marks their first concert, another major turning point in their career, it’s clear how far they’ve come together. A simple hug between members, between friends, between brothers who have gone through a lot, says a lot about what this concert means to them.
HORI7ON’s Salamat is a tribute song to their fans, and performing it at their first concert surrounded by people who love and support them is definitely a moment to remember for their entire career—and if this concert is any indication, it’s going to be a fantastic one.
