Unconfirmed Update: I heard this from a radio station while on a jeepney ride home, entrance for the E-heads reunion concert is supposedly free as long as you present 20 packs of cigarettes(?) The sponsor is Philip Morris.
I don’t smoke and I’m against smoking so I hope this rumor is not true, otherwise, I’d be forced to collect 20 packs of cigarettes from friends who do smoke. Bummer, IMO.
Somebody punch me quick! I still could not believe this news story from the Philippine Star website, in which Ricky Lo writes:
Flash: Eraserheads reunite!
Sunday, July 13, 2008
Yes, it’s confirmed: The Eraserheads are reuniting after many years of being apart, not for good but only for one show slated for Aug. 30 at the CCP Open Grounds.
According to the STAR source, all the original members (photo) are performing — Ely Buendia, Buddy Zabala, Marcus Adoro and Raimund Marasigan.
This piece of good news should make the Eraserheads fans very happy.
Said to be the ‘greatest Pinoy band,’ the Eraserheads will sing all their hit songs, including Alapaap, Toyang and Ang Huling El Bimbo. (source)
I am definitely going to watch this reunion concert by the Eraserheads! Other E-heads fans and Pinoy Rock music lovers would certainly go nuts over it as well. Not much details have been given but I’ll be keeping a close eye on entertainment news sites, forums and blogs for more information about this “dream come true” musical event for me.
2008 has just become more awesome! First it’s RedHorse’s Muziklaban 10 and now this reunion concert by the Eraserheads. It is simply asteeeg!!!!
