From child actor to action star to award-winning heartthrob and now a legitimate concert performer, Ian Veneracion performed a 2-night concert at the Music Museum billed as “Ian In Color.”
Ian highlighted his colorful life through his own brand of music, sang mostly easy listening to slow rock songs. He shared playing music has always been a huge part of his life.
His musical influences include Sting, U2, Eric Clapton, The Eagles, Peter Frampton, and Fra Lippo Lippi to name a few. His repertoire includes “Everybody Wants to Rule the World,” Ain’t No Sunshine,” “Baby I Love Your Way,” “Englishman in New York,” “Wild World,” “Wonderful Tonight,” “Best of My Love, “Change the World,” and “Light and Shade” among others. The audience becomes romantically entangled with Ian all throughout the show.
He scored even higher marks when he collaborated with his guests during the concert. Ian surrounds melodic with swirling emotions. His audience chooses to embrace these amazing performances magnificently making them more inviting to sing.
- Ian In Color is the testament that Daniel Padilla and Ian look and sound good together on stage! Fans are instantly impressed with their duet of one of Sting’s biggest hit, “Englishman in New York.” Present from the audience then is Kathryn Bernardo, the other half of the love team KathNiel.
- The highly-anticipated duet with singing royalties Ogie Alcasid and Regine Velasquez-Alcasid is an excellent feat. Hats off to the man of the hour as he pulls off a memorable collaboration.
- And speaking of sparks, it’s hard not to feel kilig when “Shallow” played on the concert stage with Ian’s ‘A Love to Last’ co-star screen actors, Bea Alonzo. It’s when everyone in the audience is shown hungry for love during the said duet.
- “I’m Gonna Make You Love Me” duet with Divine Diva Zsa Zsa Padilla sends out so much outpouring love. The song is just too perfect for a crowd to sing-along.
He also sang “When the Nights are Longer” with his daughter, Dids Veneracion.
Overall, Ian in Color is quite memorable. I’ve seen Ian once during his concert guesting and I’m totally impressed by how he handles musical instruments. Ian has had a wonderful journey in life and in showbiz that got him to where he is now. I also appreciate his being playful and funny during the show. His songs seamlessly integrate his love for music and it’s awesome to be introduced to Ian’s refreshing style and creative melody.
