Eraserhead Reunion Concert Full

In July 2008, it was confirmed by the members that they will be reuniting for a one-off concert to be held on August 30, 2008. Ely Buendia did affirm that the reunion will be for a night's performance only, to be sponsored by a multinational tobacco company. Buendia was quoted saying "I'm not doing this for the money but for the E-heads fans who remain loyal". The sponsors are expecting 35,000 attendees with free tickets distributed to online registrants in early August 2008. This highly awaited one-night concert was initially reported to be planned for staging at the Cultural Center of the Philippines open grounds,[26] or alternatively, the Fort Bonifacio open grounds.

Eraserhead Reunion Concert Full

Eraserheads went onstage for their reunion concert on August 30, 2008, at The Fort Open Field, Taguig. The concert, however, was cut short halfway through a planned 30-song setlist as Buendia was rushed to the Makati Medical Hospital after experiencing chest pains. He was reported to be in stable condition. Buddy Zabala had checked on Buendia in his tent right after they went to their planned 20-minute break and saw that he already was on an oxygen mask with paramedics checking his blood pressure. As he left and came back, paramedics were already taking Buendia on an ambulance. Bandmates Zabala, Marasigan and Adoro further said that they had no idea that Buendia was already having difficulty performing. In the spirit of the reunion, Marasigan, Zabala, and Adoro went to Saguijo after the concert and they continued their sets there. Kris Gorra-Dancel, Ebe Dancel, Aia De Leon, and many other OPM artists joined them as well. During the concert, Jazz Nicolas of the Itchyworms and a close friend of the band, also joined the band and played synths, keyboards, and other instruments.[28]

On October 25 episode of Startalk, Buendia said that the reunion concert was supposed to be a "one night only" Eraserheads reunion concert. He also said that there are no talks yet for a continuation of the said concert. However, he stated that he indeed felt "bitin" (literally translated, "not satisfied") with the uncompleted concert and is open to any sequels if it would have the proper production and venue. The other three members of the band, Adoro, Zabala, and Marasigan also expressed similar views in a follow-up interview by Myx and Inquirer.

The band went on stage for their second reunion concert dubbed as The Final Set on March 7, 2009, at the SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds, Pasay were approximately 100,000 people attended the sold-out concert. The concert went ahead despite the recent passing of their guest performer and friend Francis Magalona who died of acute myelogenous leukemia noon of the previous day.

The band continued to perform on sporadic worldwide tours from 2012 to 2014. Eraserheads held another reunion concert in the United States (San Francisco, Los Angeles & New Jersey) and Canada (Toronto) from October 12 to 20, 2012.[34]

In a tweet posted in January 2018, Buendia said: "Some people will never understand that people who don't get along don't work together." The statement was interpreted by Philippine Daily Inquirer and some fans as a response to calls for another reunion concert in the band's home country.[39]

At the December 2022 reunion concert, the band performed 31 songs with participation from guests such as Gary Valenciano and a holographic projection of late rapper Francis Magalona. The three-hour show, which drew a crowd of 75,000, closed with a five-minute long firework display alongside their encore performance of Huling El Bimbo.[45] After the concert, the band teased a 2023 world tour.

Not bad for a show whose ticket pricing was lamented over months ago: The Eraserheads reunion concert was truly worth it. It definitely gave a new meaning to the phrase "save the best for last." - Maddie Castillo, Staff Writer

He also added that he wanted to thank everyone supporting the upcoming Eraserheads concert this December. Adoro asked for continuous support for the Eraserheads reunion, saying "Alay po sa ating lahat ito."

The highly-anticipated Eraserheads "reunion concert" was announced last week, with fans clamouring for Adoro's removal from the lineup. Drummer Raymund Marasigan, vocalist Ely Buendia, and bassist Buddy Zabala have all issued their respective statements ahead of Adoro's post. Zabala, in particular, has emphasised his support for Huaro and Hartha via in interview with Rappler, saying "I sincerely hope all parties start processing what they went through and receive the help they need. They have my support."

The reunion concert is set to be held at the SMDC Festival Grounds in Paranaque City, and will feature the members line-up of Ely, Raymns Marasigan (drummer), Buddy Zabala (bassist), and Marcus Adoro (lead guitarist).

First established in 1989, the band is considered one of the most influential Filipino bands of all time prior to their disbandment in 2002. A reunion concert was first held in 2008, though it had to be cut short after Ely was rushed to the hospital for chest pains. It was resumed the next year.

Many in attendance, including myself, never thought they would see the day when all reunited on stage. The 2008 reunion in Taguig City ended with Ely Buendia being rushed to the hospital. They performed once more in 2009, in Pasay City Mall of Asia, in a concert dubbed as The Final Set.

One thing that all witnessing the performance could agree on was that it was epic spectacle. I was so grateful to see it! Hopefully, the band performs again for the fans in their homeland of the Philippines, as this reunion tour was exclusive to the United States (San Francisco, Los Angeles, Toronto, New York). It would be unfortunate if the majority of fans who propelled The Eraserheads to superstardom didn't have the opportunity to experience this. I'm sure they will get that chance though.

The concert is called Huling El Bimbo, named so after one of their most iconic songs, and will be held at the SMDC Festival Grounds in Paranaque City December 22, or 12.22.22. Considering how the reunion concert is literally three days from Christmas, tickets to the show will make for the perfect Christmas gifts to any Ehead or OPM fan. Tickets go on sale beginning October 5, Wednesday with only 50,000 tickets available. While that may seem a lot, they can go by in a flash. You can purchase the ticket via their website. Aside from performing their timeless hits with an 18-piece orchestra, the band is also expected to feature a hologram of Filipino rap icon Francis Magalona which will serve as a tribute to him. Other musicians from different bands will also be making special appearances throughout the night.

First forming in 1989 after meeting in UP Diliman, the Eraserheads quickly made OPM history as one of the most legendary and influential rock bands the local music industry has ever seen. 2002 marked their official disbandment though they have performed together on occasion. In 2008, they held a reunion concert called The Final Set but was held again in March 2009 after Ely suffered chest pains during the show. The last time all four members shared the stage was for a corporate event back in 2016. 041b061a72
