The Magical MiGstory Tour
Being in the final three for ROCKSTAR:INXS is really not where the road started for MiG, but just the continuation of a career that started in Sydney, Australia. Having been in many bands throughout high school, MiG (aka Miguel Ayesa) started his professional performing career as an actor in a pilot for the TV series MISSION:TOP SECRET. His next job was to play 'Ritchie Valens' in BUDDY... THE BUDDY HOLLY STORY which took him not only all around Australia but to London where he performed at THE ROYAL VARIETY PERFORMANCE for Queen Elizabeth 2 and Prince Phillip, as well as entertaining Princess Diana and her two very young boy Princes. MiG continued a string of roles on many stage shows and tours, but it was when he moved back to London that things really started to take off. After a short stint in RENT, MiG was chosen to play 'Galileo Figaro' in Queen's WE WILL ROCK YOU. However his talents caught the attention of the casting agent for a new CBS TV show that was looking for a new frontman for Aussie super group INXS. MiG was flown to Los Angeles where he fought it out with the other finalists to make it to the final, where he came in third in the world-wide competition. MiG was quickly signed by Decca/Universal Music Group and his self-titled debut CD was released in the USA, Canada, Australia, Philippines and New Zealand in 2007. In the final months of 2007 MiG returned to the stage as 'Galileo Figaro' in the International Tour of WE WILL ROCK YOU, successfully completing runs in New Zealand, Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong, finishing in Bangkok with his debut CD being released in those respective countries. In 2008 MiG appeared in HANDEL'S MESSIAH ROCKS, which was released on CD/DVD fall of 2009, as well as airing as a PBS-TV special across the USA. In 2009 MiG launched the 'call to arms' global campaign UNITED AS ONE, helping raise awareness and desperately needed funds to the people of the Philippines affected by Typhoon Ondoy, and consequently by following typhoons that continue to cause devastating floods. In January 2010 MiG made his Broadway debut in BURN THE FLOOR, as well as in the months thereafter touring with the show to Australia, Japan, Korea, Canada, and USA. In September 2010, MiG opened the 1st National Tour of ROCK OF AGES, as the legendary rocker 'Stacee Jaxx'. March 2011 MiG returned to Broadway to reprise his role in ROCK OF AGES for the show's reopening at the Helen Hayes Theatre. December 2011 MiG returned to London to reprise his role in THRILLER LIVE. In May 2012 MiG returned to the Philippines to reprise his role as 'Stacee Jaxx' in a completely sold out new production of ROCK OF AGES. February 2013 MiG reprised his role as 'Galileo Figaro' for the 2013 WE WILL ROCK YOU 10th ANNIVERSARY WORLD ARENA TOUR, successfully completing runs in Finland, Denmark, UK, Ireland, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Czech Republic, Turkey, Bulgaria, and Croatia. June 2013 MiG returned to the Philippines for ROCK OF AGES, the 'repeat run' and also in October 2014 for a third season. 2014 also saw MiG take the QUEEN SYMPHONIC SPECTACULAR to Australia, which included totally sold out concerts at the Sydney Opera House, and after playing 'Rooster' in ANNIE in New Zealand in June of 2014, MiG announced the launch of his new TV travel reality show FIL IT UP. Co-hosted with Sophie Sumner, this show aired in January 2015. In conjunction with this, MiG released the new video for 'UNITED AS ONE'. MiG returned to the West End in November 2014 for THRILLER LIVE, which then toured Australia and New Zealand December 2014. In late 2015, MiG starred alongside Jo Ampil in the first international production of THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY for Atlantis Productions in Manila. 2016 has seen MiG team up with THE TENORS OF ROCK as well as starring in his own solo show, making the rounds of ships all around the world. MiG is also in the process of working on new material for an upcoming album. MiG's latest album, 'MORE THAN EVER' is a culmination of years of determination and heralds the coming of age of this recording artist. Welcome to this new generation MiG Official site.

Postcard From The Edge
2 December 2016 Hello December! And greetings from the VOYAGER OF THE SEAS somewhere in the South Pacific Ocean. We had a brief stopover in my hometown of Sydney, Australia, and we experienced the most breathtaking sail away at sunset as we cruised out of this spectacular city. I wish we could have stayed longer, but the sunset views made leaving all worth it. I'm happy to announce that 'FILL MY CUP' is now available on Spotify! Click here to hear it now. MAGIC 89.9, K LITE 103.5 and JAM 88.3 are still accepting requests for the song which will translate into donations to the St. Rita Orphanage. I hope you can support the song and give the kids at St. Rita's a joyous Christmas this year! I'm also happy to announce that THE MUSIC OF QUEEN will be also heading to Hamer Hall in Melbourne on 21 January, 2017. Check out the TOUR page for all the details. It's all QUEEN right now as we are about to perform ROCK RHAPSODY tonight on this majestic ship. The VOYAGER is definitely going to rock tonight...I think we need a bigger boat!
23 November 2016 It’s been a very busy time since my last diary entry. I have been around the world several times over, and have been involved with many interesting projects. I was so thrilled to perform with the amazing Nicole Asensio for Shangri-la Plaza’s 25th Anniversary Celebrations, and the awesome Trinidad Band. I hope we get a chance to work together again…in fact I know we will. I am particularly proud of my association with FWD Life, with their ‘FILL MY CUP’ campaign. Now that it’s released officially, it is exclusively played on MAGIC 89.9, K LITE 103.5 and JAM 88.3. Here is the best part, for every request these stations get to play the song ‘FILL MY CUP’, P50 will be given to the wonderful kids at St. Rita Orphanage in Manila. If this is not a great way to fill your cup, I don’t know what is! Anyways, I’m at the airport again, heading back to Sydney, then tomorrow to Fiji where I will join the awesome ship VOYAGER OF THE SEAS to sing some QUEEN songs with some kick-ass singers as we sail around the South Pacific Islands. Ahhhh life…
30 September, 2016 Greetings from Okinawa, Japan. I'm just about to board the VOYAGER OF THE SEAS tomorrow and that will be my last leg of my solo show on the high seas for a little while. It's been an amazing experience this year, working on so many ships in so many ways, visiting so many countries, meeting so many wonderful people. I have had the opportunity to get creative and work on projects that I have been neglecting. One that I am proud to announce is the final episode of my WWRY World Arena Tour video blog. I started it in 2013, and the 19th and final episode is done and up!! Check it out here!
2 August, 2016 Yesterday was a momentous day as I started a new venture in co-operation with FWD Insurance, Philippines. This dynamic company has inspired me and commissioned me to write their theme song, and I am so excited with the way it is turning out. I do hope you stay tuned as things develop. Look out for it soon. I will keep you posted as we go along. It was so great to get together with my guys Junjun Regalado, JunjunJimenez Perez, Ardie de Guzman, along with Marvin Querido and Angelo (Angie) Rozul at OnQ Music Studios. This is going to be an amazing project…I hope you can join me!!
