A NEW BRAND OF LIVE FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT FROM THE PRODUCERS OF DISNEY ON ICE COMES TO MANILA AND CEBU CITY FOR THE FIRST TIME

Mickey Mouse and his band of friends, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy
will be performing in a music mash-up of mega proportions as Disney Live!
comes to Manila and Cebu City for the first time with its newest stage show
Mickey's Music Festival. Concert goers will hear greatest hits from the
blockbuster movies, Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, and Disney/Pixar's Toy
Story remixed to rock, pop, reggae, hip-hop, jazz and country, among other
jams. Produced by Feld Entertainment, Disney Live! Mickey's Music Festival
brings the biggest concert experience to hit live family entertainment.


"One song can touch millions of people around the world and Disney has been
at the beat of this concept for years by making music a main ingredient of
storytelling,
" said Producer and CEO of Feld Entertainment, Kenneth Feld.
"In Disney Live! Mickey's Music Festival we are celebrating with the Disney
characters to a soundtrack of the latest sounds and chart-topping hits. We
want our guests to walk away with lasting memories and singing these
unforgettable melodies long after they leave the show.
"


Disney Live! Mickey's Music Festival, featuring an all star line-up of more
than 25 Disney characters, begins with audiences watching a
state-of-the-art video projection of the frenzy backstage which spills onto
the stage as Mickey welcomes guests to his concert tour. Soon thereafter,
they will be transported to a new world of hip hop beats, dizzying
acrobatics, flying carpets and magical transformations with Aladdin, Jasmine
and Genie. Underwater is where the crowd will meet up with Ariel, Sebastian
and their nautical pals to groove to the reggae rhythm. And, family and
friends will stomp to the beat as Woody, Buzz and Jessie teach them how to
boogie rodeo-style. Anyone can be a member of the band as giant-sized
balloons fall from the ceiling in one scene and then in the next, Disney
characters are dancing in the aisles.


"We've created an environment where audience members will be able to connect
with the Disney stars,
" said Alana Feld, Producer and Executive Vice
President of Feld Entertainment. "Within each concert moment are elements of
personal interaction and they will be harmonizing, dancing, laughing and
having an outrageously good time with the characters right there in their
city
."
