The proof is in the pudding as the adage goes.

In the case of Arthur Nery’s upcoming self-titled concert, the proof lies in the number of tickets sold.

Fans of the “Pagsamo” singer were quick to grab tickets for the July 2 performance to be held at the New Frontier Theatre in Quezon City.

First to go were the SVIP seats.

These were cleaned out in the first two weeks since Viva Live, Inc. announced the show.

Then just last week, tickets for the loge and balcony areas were sold out entirely.

Credit that to Arthur’s ever-growing popularity.

Arthur earned huge notice when his single “Binhi” from his album “Letters Never Sent” became a slow burn hit.

Several others followed in its wake, including “Higa,” and “Life Puzzle.”

More hits followed in “Happy w u,” “Take All The Love,” and his collab-track with Janine Tenoso “Pelikula.”

“Pagsamo” cemented his standing among today’s biggest pop acts.

To date, the track has close to 200 million streams on YouTube and Spotify combined.
