The Village People’s image and reputation has created very prominent significance in pop culture across the globe. Images of an American native, police officer, a construction worker, soldier, big biker, and cowboy seemed pretty bizarre at first but it sure became a hit among its fans through the past 35 years. And the fact that The Village People made history not just with how unique they look that’s exceptionally theirs, they had made waves through their disco-themed songs.

The Village People had loads of chart bursting hits such as “Go West”, “In The Navy”, “Milkshake”, “I am What I am,” “Can’t Stop The Music”, and “YMCA” among many others. They were the biggest item in the 70’s era until the mid parts of the 80’s. The Village People’s looks and costumes had been imitated and spoofed a lot and even if their careers had somehow mellowed down, their Greatest Hits and Best Of compilations are still raking in sales, not to mention their hit songs still enjoy the airplay in several radio stations around the world. They have also been awarded with a star on the Hollywood Walk of fame in 2008—an honor they truly deserved.

 And even if in 1995, they’ve lost an original group member who passed away, The Village People are still solid and intact throughout these years. The big news is that the group will be in town this coming November 17, 2012 and will be performing LIVE at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City for a ONE-NIGHT ONLY concert in Manila! Yes, it’s a once in a lifetime chance to relive all the memories and go back in time with your favorite The Village People disco hits and party the night away.
