“Talagang pinaghandaan ko po ito at pinagkagastusan. This is my first major concert ever at ang gusto kong mangyari ay hindi lamang manood kundi mapasayaw ang lahat ng nasa loob ng Big Dome. I am both excited and nervous but deep inside me ay maligaya ako,” he utters.

An energetic concert performer, Billy has impressed audiences in America and Europe. He has performed in Australia, Belgium, Denmark, England, Finland, France, Germany and Thailand.

He has reserved the best for last which is his hometown, the Philippines. It is a fulfillment of a promise Billy made after seeking fame in the international scene.

It’s Time is directed by Gabriel Hearu who once directed the opening and closing ceremonies of the Olympics. He worked closely with musical director Tats Faustino to make sure that the event will be a dance till-you-drop extravaganza.

We heard that the production cost has escalated to huge proportions. The set alone is something to marvel about. Billy says it is a dazzling sight because it keeps on changing throughout the concert.

By now, you must be familiar with the sight of Billy’s choreographer Maryss who served as one of the judges in the Move dance contest sponsored by GMA7. She has worked with the best artists in the world including Gwen Stefani and Justin Timberlake. The dance moves of Billy in this concert is a must to watch.

No concert is complete without the participation of guest artists and the line-up in Billy’s show include Jay-R, Karylle, Kris Lawrence and the Manouevres.

We told Billy that it would be great if he can ask KC Concepcion to do a song number in the concert. A rare appearance by KC (and possibly a duet with Billy) is wishful thinking but the fact still remains that they look great as a tandem.

The talented Billy is keeping his options open after the concert. “I can extend my stay should an interesting offer comes along. I am Europe-bound for some negotiations with a recording outfit,” he says.

Its Time is produced by White Spectrum with tickets priced at P3,676, P3,150, P2,626, P1,575, P840, and P315.
