Onor said that the talk for Anton’s big show started in 2018, but they can’t find a perfect venue and dates until Anton’s surprise appearance on Vice Ganda and Regine Valentine’s concert became viral and hit in social media where she sings Shine, a hit song of Regine, that’s inspired him to call it SHINE XXAD or 22 representing the career years of Anton in the industry.
“Aside sa mga regine songs syempre, gumawa kami ng ibang repertoire na Anton Diva, you will see the difference side of Anton. Para makita nila na etu si Anton Diva throughout the years, yung journey nya kailangan makita ng mga millennials ngayon.” Onor said during our interview
For Anton that who will turn 42 years old this coming June, people will not dismay to watch her first ever major solo concert, a lot of collaborative numbers are being added In the show to make it very worthwhile, with no exceptions of Regine’s hit songs.

“Hindi na mahihiwalay yun, sa repertoire whenever I do shows, I go out of town, sa mga probinsya, sa ibang bansa, yun ang ini-expect nila na makanta ko ang mga songs ni Songbird, biruin nyo naman san kayo makakakita ng bakla, hindi naman ako operada, I really cannot deny the fact na forlife na, na si Anton ay Regine na.” Anton said.
For the Director of the show, Peter Serrano is all praises to Anton for doing the said concert, he was able to follow Anton’s career and he believe he can do more, he didn’t disclose some details of the concert because it is a surprise for all on the night of June 15.
“Our singers before tell stories, di lang sila basta kumakanta, they tell stories, yun yung wala sa mga concert artists na bata ngayon, just like Anton nung una ko syang narinig I can sense something in him na wala yung karamihan, and that is, she just doesn’t sing, she tell stories, mararamdadaman mo eh if the singer is doing that, because they sing from the heart, they sing from the soul, and Anton has that. I’m so honored to direct this show.” Serrano shares.
