The upcoming concert of Filipino rock icons, the Eraserheads, will be their last in the Philippines as confirmed by the producers.
“This will be the last reunion of the group that’s why we want to give the fans one last epic show,” Francis Lumen, one of the producers of the concert and president of WEU, said. Diane Ventura, one of the co-producers of the concert and manager of lead vocalist Ely Buendia, confirmed saying “this is indeed the last reunion.”
The show was aptly dubbed as Huling El Bimbo, signaling that it is the group’s finalperformance. The tickets sold out after four days from its initial release, moving the producers to expand the capacity of the venue to accommodate more concert goers.
Lead vocalist Ely Buendia said that the Huling El Bimbo isn’t like any other previous reunion concerts.
“Mounting an Eraserhead’s show is no easy feat. But this is no ordinary show, it’s their last and final act in the Philippines that’s why we are making sure it’s a show that would etch in the memories of all us fans, me included,” Paolo Valenciano, concert director, shared. “Watch out for the drone show and a hologram of the late Francis M., ” Valenciano added. The reunion concert is Eraserheads’ gift to fans as they kick-off the Christmas spirit before the yuletide celebrations.
The show will be complemented by the wonders of an 18-piece orchestra. Mel Villena, the musical director of the show, said that “the concert promises an unforgettable musical experience of Eraserheads.”
The Huling El Bimbo - Eraserheads Reunion Concert 2022 is a production by WEU Event Management Services, Ant Savvy Creatives and Entertainment Inc., DVent Productions and Myriad Entertainment Corporation. The event is presented by SMART,
Coke Studio, PLDT, Angkas, and Maya. This concert is co-presented by SM Supermalls, and in participation with San Miguel Corporation and Okada Manila. Tickets are available at SM Tickets outlets and online.
Ben&Ben are capping off a year of record-breaking achievements and monumental milestones by performing in front of their hometown Manila fans! The nine-piece act has just announced the Homecoming Concert, a one night live music extravaganza happening on Sunday December 18, 2022 at the SMDC Festival Grounds.
This event will not only mark the band’s return to Manila, but it will also be their biggest concert yet. Ben&Ben promises to show gratitude to the fans who have supported their music journey since day one.
“To match that sense of gratitude, we wanted to mount our largest show yet, with our longest set, most ambitious performance ideas, and simply the best of what we’ve made through the years,” the chart-topping Filipino group shares in a statement. “We are most excited about bringing this show, finally, to our Liwanag, because it had definitely been a long journey with a lot of hard work to get here.”
Conceptually, Ben&Ben’s Homecoming Concert 2022 is centered around the feeling of home: as a place, idea, or person of comfort, or as a reassuring gesture of security and intimacy. According to the “Paninindigan Kita” hitmakers, the outdoor music show is also about coming home to each other and being home to each other.
“We’ve always likened how each piece of music we make is a little gift that our listeners have allowed into their lives, and how they have likewise felt the comfort of home through our songs, so it’s in that give and take and sharing of the feeling of home that we ultimately want to highlight for this show.”
The Homecoming Concert will also feature guest performances from artists such as: Filipina KZ Tandingan, Zild, Juan Karlos, and more. Tickets to Ben&Ben’s Homecoming Concert 2022 can be purchased via ovationtickets.com and ticketnet.com.ph.
