Eraserheads announces comeback concert
THE ROCK band Eraserheads has announced that their long-awaited reunion concert, Ang Huling El Bimbo, will be held on Dec. 22 at the SMDC Festival Grounds in Parañaque City. Speculation arose that the band’s members would hold a reunion after front man and vocalist Ely Buendia, drummer Raymund Marasigan, bassist Buddy Zabala, and guitarist Marcus Adoro posted the logo of the band on their respective Instagram accounts on Sept. 17. During the height of their popularity in the 1990s, the Eraserheads released a string of hits including “Ang Huling El Bimbo,” “Magasin,” “Alapaap,” “Fruitcake,” “Ligaya,” and “Pare Ko.” After a decade of making music together, they disbanded in 2002. The band had a reunion concert in 2008 but it was cut short when Mr. Buendia was rushed to the hospital for chest pains. In March 2009, the band held another reunion concert titled The Final Set at the SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds. According to the new concert poster, tickets will go on sale soon.
