One Night, One Band: Eraserheads Reunion Concert

First time I heard about the rumors of a reunion concert I was so excited. Came out that rumors were true and one of the biggest cigarette company is sponsoring the event (I hate to promote smoking but just to be accurate about my post it is Marlboro).
Tickets back then was free, here is a conversation I had with the person (GP) who told me about the rumored concert:
Me: Hi, where can I get tickets for the Eraserhead reunion concert?
GP: Hi, the tickets are free you just need to sign up at this website, http://marlboro.ph/ – cheers!
Me: But I’m not a smoker
GP: I don’t smoke either but still i sign up for it, as long as your 18 and up you’ll be ok.. just sign up! 😉
I didn’t sign-up at all because I don’t smoke, signing up would mean I am shedding my staunch dislike for smoking and pretend that I am which is not cool. Instead I went backdoor and found the concert organizer to get me in 😀 (sadly, I couldn’t make it to the concert because work duty calls, work SUCK! meh! not really).

Anyway, latest news came up and the concert will no longer be free, all because there was a loud protest about having a cigarette company sponsor the event, ergo a free campaign for smoking, which is no longer allowed in Philippine laws. Cigarette companies are obliged to pay tax etc. for any event or advertisement it will do.

Therefore Marlboro was forced to have a price for the concert. Price is P1,300 for patrons and P800 for general admission. Tickets are available at Ticketworld.

Eraserheads Reunion Concert will be held on August 30, 2008 at the Fort Open Field. Good luck Eheads!

The Eraserheads or E-Heads was a prominent Pinoy rock band of the 1990s, formed by Ely Buendia (Lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Raymund Marasigan (Drums, back-up vocals), Buddy Zabala (Lead guitar, back-up vocals) and Marcus Adoro (Bass guitar, back-up vocals). The band is one of the most successful, critically-acclaimed, and significant bands in the history of Original Pinoy Music,[1] giving them the title “The Beatles of the Philippines.”[1][2] The Eraserheads was also said to open the second wave of band invasion,[3] paving the way for other alternative rock bands[4] such as Rivermaya, The Youth, Teeth, Siakol, Grin Department, Parokya ni Edgar and Yano.

The band released more than several different singles, albums, and EPs that reached number one. This commercial success was most evident in the release of their third album Cutterpillow, which achieved platinum status several times. The Eraserheads is one the best-selling musical acts of all time in the Philippines, paving way for an international career that earned them the “Moon Man” in the MTV Video Music Awards.
