AS PART OF TFC’S ‘TOURISTAS GLOBAL TRIP’
Kim Chiu, Xian Lim due on Saipan this May 29
In the tradition of bringing its well-loved content closer to every overseas Filipino viewer, The Filipino Channel makes history anew as it kicks off the “Touristas Global Trip” series with the Saipan leg of the widely followed teleserye “The Story Of Us” featuring Kim Chiu and Xian Lim, happening on May 29 at the Royal Taga Convention Center World Resort Saipan.
ABS-CBN Asia Pacific managing director Ailene Averion says that “The Story Of Us” Saipan is the first of a series of TFC events dubbed “Touristas Global Trip” which will share the entertainment value of ABS-CBN’s most watched shows across the world. “Bringing ‘The Story Of Us’ first to Saipan marks another first in our efforts to bring a total content experience to new markets. We continue to expand our audience in new areas as we hear the needs of our Kapamilyas for world-class Filipino entertainment, guaranteed by a brand that is TFC,” Aversion says. Averion adds, “Kim and Xian, two of this generation’s brightest stars will deliver an unforgettable experience that will make our Kapamilyas feel that we always try to deliver to them a piece of home.”
Labeled as one of the hottest and most enduring Filipino love teams of their time, Kim and Xian dubbed KimXi, will get closer to their fans as they bring the thrill of their tandem to Saipan shores as they share the songs from the teleserye including “Kailangan Kita,” performed for the teleserye by Angeline Quinto.
Kim, also called the “Chinita Princess,” is not only an award-winning actress but also a top-selling performer as well. Kim first came into the entertainment scene via her win at the first Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) Edition as the Grand Winner. Since then, she has consistently made a name for herself from television, movies, even at the music industry. During the “Story of Us” concert on Saipan, she will share her own hits such as “Mr. Right.”
Xian, a multi-talented artist himself, will perform solo of international covers, his own hits such as “Bakit Hindi Ka Crush ng Crush Mo,” and duets with Kim.
The loveteam will first put together by the network in the teleserye “Binondo Girl,” which was one of ABS-CBN’s most widely followed and much-talked about series. After proving their mettle as a team, they have since scored top-rating series and blockbuster movies.
“The Story of Us” is their comeback series after 2012’s top-rating teleserye “Ina, Kapatid, Anak.” Now, the reunion drama is set to create another milestone for both TFC and the love team.
“The Story Of Us Saipan,” will create history also as the first major event in Saipan after a long time, on May 29, 2016 from 7pm to 10:30pm at the Royal Taga Convention Center, World Resort Saipan.
The event is made possible by Philippine Airlines, which also announces the launch of their flights to Saipan on June 15, 2016.
Ticket prices are at $40 (with group photo op with the artist) and $20. For more information, visit facebook.com/TFCGuamAndSaipan.
