Eraserheads Reunion Concert… The Movie, In Theaters!
Yes, yes, I was one of the millions who WAS NOT able to watch the Eraserheads last August 30′s reunion concert because of work and other stuff.. But when I heard that there will be a DVD coming out this December of that event I was sure to heaven that I’m going to buy one!
Now am I going to go out and see this movie?! You bet you ass I will :)
Here’s what I read:
If you were one of the 60,000 fans who, last Aug. 30, braved the traffic and stood at the The Fort Bonifacio Open Field for hours, all for the love of the Eraserheads who were staging their reunion concert, then you should watch the filmed coverage of the event which will be shown in theaters in Metro Manila and Cebu starting Wednesday, Nov. 26. Who knows, the cameras might have caught you and your companions swooning.
Presented by Smart Buddy, Eraserheads Reunion Concert The Movie captures the highlights of the much-awaited event rudely interrupted when vocalist Ely Buendia suffered chest pains and breathing difficulty during the intermission: The state-of-the-art sounds and lights, the magnificent fireworks display, the E-Heads hits performed on a stage that cost P40-million to build and, most important of all, the happy-turned-sad faces of E-Heads fans who reacted to the announcement of the concert being cut short not with disapproval but with quiet prayer.
More than a reunion, the concert healed the rift among the four estranged members, also including Raimund Marasigan, Buddy Zabala and Marcus Adoro. Due to protests against the cigaret company sponsoring it lodged with the Department of Health, the concert almost didn’t happen, but thanks to Francis Lumen’s company and SonyBMG (which is releasing the soundtrack) which saved the day for E-Heads fans.
Asked in a recent interview if they’re going to hold another reunion concert, Ely Buendia said, “It is possible.”
Meanwhile, enjoy the movie.
