It’s July 19 and the earthquake prediction slated for July 18 did not come true (as if I was surprised). It’s good news as we will still be able to witness a rumored reunion concert by one of the Philippines’ best band. The Eraserheads Reunion Concert is said to be slated on August 30, 2008 at the CCP Open Grounds. Though GMANews has indeed confirmed that the reunion will indeed happen on the said date and place.
The band composed of Ely Buendia, Buddy Zabala, Marcus Adoro, and Raimund Marasigan will play full 45 minutes on August 30. For those E-heads fans who have been clamoring for the band to reunite after they disbanded on 2002 should not let this opportunity pass. I for one is an E-heads fan and I would love to watch this event only if it will be staged in Cebu.
The reunion concert rumor has been going on for a long time ever since the band disbanded in 2002. Some sources have claimed that the reunion is happening because a big amount is involved (an estimated P2.5 million to P10 million apiece) for them to play 1 45-minute set, though Ely (the band’s front man) claimed that the reunion was pressed to the undying clamor and support by the fans and not because of the money.
It remains to be seen though if the band will be reuniting for good. They have had sold-put tribute albums and concerts and fans clamoring for their reunion, and if they will indeed reunite for good, expect the following of old and new Eraserheads fans just hibernating somewhere listening to old tracks of the band.
For the betterment of everybody, here’s a wiki link describing who The EraserHeads are.
