Dream come true: Eraserheads reunion concert Aug 30, 08

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)

Waaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhh!!!!!1!!!!1!!1!!!!!!!!!1 O.M.F.G!!!!!!111!1!!!1!!1!!11

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!!!!

  1. o ano riaps

    are you still alive..

    we are all praying for ely's recovery

    makunsensia k nmn oi,, makisam k smin

    after mong magboycott mag-isa

    i just hope now you realized na before you say anything else

    think of it first hundred times..

    patawa ka kasi.

    makagawa k lng nobela

    kung anu ano binitawan mong bad words..

    shame on you riaps

    shame on you…….

  2. well riaps.

    the concert pushed through and was fantastic… although bitin, but understandable because of ely's condition.

    so did you have fun all by yourself in your room boycotting it?

    hahahaha! we all feel sorry for you.

  3. sobra ka nmn riaps

    bkit nmn pati eheads ei i-boycott mo

    and besides.. philip morris was pressured by Dept of Health,

    coz its a sort of advertisement n din

    ei dba nga. any cigarette can n longer make a public advertisement.

    and kahit hndi k nmn

    nanunod, ei sold out p din ang ticket/concert

    cguro ikaw ang bad vives

    kaya inatake c ely..

    i-boycott mong mukha mo!!

    kainiz k.

  4. i don't believe that marlboro is totally out of the picture as the reports have mentioned. they got the publicity that they wanted. they will surely be present at the event in one way or another.

  5. when i first heard about this concert from a friend, i went on the internet immediately to check the specifics out. i too am one of those avid fans of the band that got super excited when i found out about the reunion concert. i love the eraserheads! i read some blogs saying that the concert will be free to those who will register on the marlboro website. as i went on to research on the event a little more, i found out that there are already people arguing about its authenticity. in short, this event that was spread by word-of-mouth (obviously by no less than marlboro/philip morris) and no other formal announcements were made about its specifics (even the venue was withheld until the last minute), caused so much hoopla on the internet. a dream come true to a sponsor that seeks to get attention from its target audience without having to advertise, since they can't. then a few days ago we all found out that it is actually NOT a free concert. a big joke, if you ask me. after gaining momentum they announce that you actually have to pay for the concert. it is actually a small price to pay to see one of the greatest OPM bands come together after years of hiatus but all this manipulation, honestly, is just a bunch of crap!

    i suggest that we all BOYCOTT MARLBORO, BOYCOTT THE CONCERT. if we allow this to go on, what will happen next? i love the eraserheads too but these big sponsors/advertisers are playing as puppet masters and making a mockery of the fans. they should learn to respect us. no more run-arounds. get the facts straight first before announcing it to the public. BOYCOTT THE CONCERT!!!!
