Members of the American rock band Aerosmith have arrived in Manila for their first ever concert in South East Asia.

Lead vocalist Steven Tyler told journalists jostling for pictures: "I can't wait to play, I can't believe you guys."

Aerosmith are performing in Manila on May 8, with tickets costing up to 20,000 pesos (480 US dollars).

The band's show in Indonesia was cancelled, with promoter Ismaya Live citing safety concerns. It was not clear if the decision was connected to an alleged bomb plot targeting Myanmar's embassy in Jakarta.

Aerosmith began their Asia-Pacific tour in April in New Zealand and Australia.

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
