American rapper Russ Vitale aka Russ is coming to Manila to perform for his Filipino fans for the first time ever in July.

The American singer-rapper is set to perform at the New Frontier Theater in Quezon City on July 27.

Events and concert production companies Random Minds Inc. and Karpos Multimedia made the announcement on social media this morning with a witty reference to Russ’ hits “AINT GOIN BACK” and “What They Want.”

“We ain’t goin back now as @russdiemon finally gives us what we want,” their captions read.

Tickets will go on sale on Thursday at 11am via Ticketnet outlets and its website. Prices, however, have yet to be revealed.

Russ first teased a Manila concert in March. “Philippines imma see you in the summer too,” he wrote on Twitter.

Russ also recently retweeted some performances by Filipinos of his hit “Missin You Crazy.” He was amazed yesterday when he retweeted Twitter user @treenasalazar_ who made a guitar cover of the song.

He said: “Woww! [It was amazing] when you broke it down towards the end.”

He also retweeted a Filipino version of “Missin You Crazy” posted by Twitter user @spaguia.

“Y’all showin so much love thank you,” Russ tweeted with a bunch of Philippine flags.

Apart from “Missin You Crazy,” Russ is also known for other hits such as “LOSIN CONTROL,” “SERIOUS,” and “Do It Myself.”
