‘Jadine’ on rising up and moving forward

Before 2017 ended, Filipinos were faced with yet another “battle” — not with religion or politics, not with drugs - but those with inner demons that lead to emotional crises, as news broke out of the death of actress Nadine Lustre's teen brother.
The reality of depression among the youth came to the fore as celebrities shared in Lustre's grief and voiced out their views on the raging issue.
For Nadine, love is the answer — with love comes patience and caring, which is sometimes what we need to keep going.
This may partly be the reson she enters 2018 with renewed zest. Facing the media together, Nadine and James Reid, her long-time screen partner and real-life boyfriend, talked about their upcoming second major concert, "Revolution: The Jadine Concert," on February 9 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in the Araneta Center in Quezon City.
Many remember that Jadine, as these two are collectively referred to, headlined the record-breaking "Jadine In Love" show that was also held at the Big Dome in 2016. The concert celebrating the soaring ratings of their TV series On The Wings Of Love sold out in only one week and became the occasion when James made the admission that he and Nadine are indeed in love.
The Jadine relationship remains solid and it is this love for each other that will highlight this new show produced by VIVA Live. This time, James reveals, the focus will be on their artistry, their own music, rather than a TV show.
James and Nadine are set to bring to "Revolution" (which contains the word "love spelled in reverse, Nadine points out) the fierce, grittier style that has evolved from their early recordings three years ago.
Watch them perform their hits, "Bahala Na" and "Para-Paraan" along with the hot new sounds like "Cool Down" and "IL2LU" that they have created. Among the highlights, says information provided by Viva, will be select songs from James's current album, Palm Dreams. Fans, it also promised, are in for "some upbeat production numbers" and those much-awaited "romantic moments." A few are wondering if another "big revelation" could come up during the show, which heightens the thrill factor for sure.
Nadine directs most of the videos that will be shown during the concert. She exhibits her prowess in video directing through the show's teaser, which may already be viewed online.

Action-packed 2018
James is eager to show the results of all his hard work last year creating and releasing his album, Palm Dreams. The chart-topping work not just showcases James's growth as a singer, it also marks his songwriting and producing debut under his own music label, Careless Music Manila. The label has also produced one track in Nadine's upcoming as-yet untitled new album.
James and Nadine will take "Revolution" on the road in the summer with a provincial tour in April and a series of shows in the United States in May.
The box-office stars will also be flying to London in mid-January to shoot scenes for their upcoming new movie, Never Not Love You. A contemporary romance-drama about love among millennials, the highly-anticipated movie marks Jadine's reunion project with their On The Wings of Love director Tonet Jadaone. It's the trio's first big screen outing together and Jadine's first since 2016's blockbuster This Time.
Never Not Love You will be followed by at least two more movie projects this year. James will co-star with superstar Sarah G in the big comedy The Granny (20 Again), a local adaptation of one of the biggest Asian movie hits in recent years. He is also set to start shooting the big action-fantasy epic Pedro Penduko later this year.
Nadine will also branch out on her own with not just one, but two movies that will further showcase her versatility — the light romance-comedy Ulan from the writer-director of Camp Sawi, Irene Villamor, and the thriller The Nurse from the acclaimed director of Die Beautiful, Jun Lana.
James and Nadine are also set to return to primetime television on ABS-CBN with a new teleserye. To be directed by acclaimed director Dan Villegas, the as yet-unfitted soap is scheduled to start taping in the second quarter of the year.
Meantime, "Revolution" is coming, so hold on top your seats!
Presented by Manulife, Champion and Hot Shots, "Revolution: The Jadine Concert" will have as guest performers Sarah Geronimo, Sam Conception, Kiana Valenciano, Bret Jackson and Vice Ganda. Director is Paul Basinillo. Dance director is Teacher Georcelle. Musical director is Jay Agustin.
Tickets to the "Revolution: The Jadine Concert" are priced at P4770 (VIP); P3,710 (Patron); P2,968 (Box Premium); P2,120 (Box Regular); and P1,272 (Upper Box).
