Made up of twin brother frontmen Miguel and Paulo Benjamin along with their seven-piece band, folk-pop collective Ben&Ben have more than a billion online streams, a triple-platinum-selling album, and legions of fans both inside and outside of their native Philippines. This October, the band played their first ever solo arena show outside of their home country, brought to Dubai by The Fridge, much to the delight of a rapturous and adoring Coca-Cola Arena audience.
Speaking to TPiMEA prior to the show, The Fridge’s Founder and Director, Shelley Frost, was clearly just as excited as the thousands of screaming Ben&Ben fans who were pouring into the venue. “It’s a massive night,” she beamed. “Not only is this The Fridge’s first arena show, but it’s also Ben&Ben’s first solo arena show outside of the Philippines and the first time that a Filipino band has headlined Coca-Cola Arena.”
