After the success of the Music Museum series, Gary V embarked on the Reenergized 2023 North American tour. The tour began in Suquamish, Washington, passing through renowned venues like Cache Creek Casino Resort in Brooks, California, and Portland, Oregon. The Canadian leg was equally successful.

Gary was also recently lauded with the Gawad Sa Sining at Kultura ng Paglilingkod sa Bayan award by the prestigious Gawad Tanglaw Awards, organized by the Tagapuring Mga Akademik ng Aninong Gumagalaw. Gary thanked the organization in a recorded message. “It means a lot to me. Maraming salamat. Rest assured we will continue to give the best for the people who only deserve the best from us.”

And due to insistent public demand, Gary V: Back at the Museum recently had a repeat that consisted of four sold-out shows, with his 3 November performance marking his 100th solo concert at Music Museum, making him the first and only artist to accomplish this feat. Gary’s son Gab flew in to celebrate the iconic night and jumped in to dance with his father and the Manoeuvres Ignite. 

Gary and his Manila Genesis team are adding two more dates to formally close the series on 30 November and 1 December. For more details, email [email protected] or visit 

Gary is gearing up to cap his 40th with his biggest concert yet that is set to happen at the Mall of Asia Arena in April 2024.
