Free Six Eraserheads Concert 2009 Info and Tips

Posted on March 2, 2009  in Blog Experiences

Yahoooo! 5 days to go!!!
In the tradition of my Free Six Video and my six tagalog love quotes posts I am posting some Free Six Info and Tips for the Eraserheads Concert 2009.

1. Here is the Eraserheads concert layout on Mall of Asia Grounds. I found this cool eheads site called eheadscountdown.com so I’m giving them some link love.

2. If you are going to the concert and you’re bringing your ride, I suggest you park on the SM Department Store side and NOT on the SM Hypermart side. But if you want to exercise by walking a long long way , then park anywhere 🙂

If you still don’t have tickets for the concert, here are some deals I recently researched:
3. Enervon is giving away some tickets. They dubbed it as “Mas Happy Raffle Promo” you just need to buy some Enervon products from their booth and they are raffling out some tickets at the end of the day.
enervon-eheads-03022009

4. Mysandbox is giving away tickets. Honestly I don’t know this mysandbox site, their about page says:

Sandbox is a portal that brings content and services you love on the web all in one place.
In Sandbox, you can create a profile and update your status for your friends to see. You can upload and view photos and videos, write a blog or join a forum discussion. You can send and receive email and download music, games and various other content.

I saw some of their ads via blogbank (sorry I’m not an publisher/affiliate, but I love to try it out in the future) so this is worth a try. More details here

5. Smart is giving away concert tickets too. Read details here.

So Mcdonald’s, San Miguel Beer, then Enervon, Mysandbox and Smart. Hehehe, so many sponsors 🙂

And the last one…
6. Still desperate to have some Eraserheads tickets? Try betting on Philippine Lotto.
You still have Super Lotto 6/49 draw on Tuesday and Thursday plus the Mega Lotto 6/45 on Wednesday. I reserve the Friday for you:

  • to get your winnings in the PCSO office
  • and go to Ticketworld to buy the tickets

Hope you enjoy my post 🙂

San Miguel Beer = Free Eraserheads Concert Tickets?

Posted on February 26, 2009  in Blog Experiences

A good friend of mine forwarded an email containing some unconfirmed gig. Header is San Miguel Pale Pilsen Sarap Magbabad Freeze The Summer (SMB Summer campaign). It bannered the photos of Bamboo, Chito of Parokya ni Edgar and Ely of Eraserheads.
The text read: 3 Bands. Only 1 Legendary Beer.

san_miguel_ad_email

I do not know if this is true.

But it seems San Miguel Beer is brewing up a concert featuring Bamboo and Parokya one day before the Eraserheads Concert 2009. March 6, Venue is Baypark View in Roxas Blvd. And they are GIVING AWAY Eraserheads Concert 2009 tickets. 2000 tickets FREE. Wow!

So in addition to Mcdonald’s, we now have San Miguel Beer as a mini-sponsor too 🙂

I am not sure if I can handle two concerts in two nights! But party people out there, my advise is: Go! Go! Go!

Special thanks to my good (looking) friend RJ for the heads up 🙂
I will be updating this post as soon as I have new info.

March 7 is Fine Fine Time

Posted on February 18, 2009  in Personal Experiences

Still don’t know what will happen on March 7? Read my Eraserheads Concert 2009 post. 16 days to go 🙂

Since the special day is near, I would like to post one of my favorite eheads song:

Fine Time
Eraserheads

Chorus:
I hope we could spend more time together
A few hours is better than never
If we could only make it longer
A whole day would be fine (4x)

I think it’s time to clean your car
I’m not home if someone calls
We could go out for a day
We could sing some songs we hate
Why not swim in someone’s pool
Jump a crane 12 storeys high
Have a picnic in my room
Sit outside and watch the moon

(chorus)

We could drive in to the malls
Or stay home and watch TV
I don’t care if we don’t have lunch
Just as long as we have iced tea
I could take you to a film
Hunt for books and magazines
Is that new song out on sale
I think that dress is kinda pale

(chorus)

There are times when we disagree
My heart sings to the sea
I’m always anxious when we kiss on me
Please don’t tire of understanding me

Being with you makes me feel so safe
I don’t care if we go out of town
I don’t care if we sleep all day
Basta’t kayakap ka ay okey

(chorus)

A whole week would be fine
A whole month would be fine
A whole year would be fine
A decade would fine
A century would be fine

Fine, fine time (4x)

Forever would be fine

Song is dedicated to Raven of course (She’s my date on that special day).

Kitakits 🙂

Mcdonald’s sponsors Eraserheads Reunion Concert in March 2009?

Posted on January 29, 2009  in Blog Experiences

I don’t watch TV that often, but when I do and I like the commercial, it really sticks into my head. And this one is my LCS (last commercial syndrome): Mcdonald’s “First Love” Featuring Eheads Ang Huling El Bimbo:

My housemates say that this was on the TV some weeks ago,
which makes me think that the timing coincides with the announcement of Eraserheads Reunion Concert Part 2 The Final Set.

So is Mcdonald’s one of the major sponsors of the Reunion Concert Part 2? Ok maybe a minor sponsor? Or maybe they will own exclusive rights of selling burgers in the SM Mall of Asia grounds concert venue on March 7, 2009 🙂 . I remember seeing Mcdo crew members selling burgers at the Fort venue during the 1st concert. So this is just my wild guess okay??? If you know some insider details on this deal, put some comments here or send me a note via my contact page. 🙂

GOLD = 3000 Pesos

I don’t know if I myself can afford the VIP tickets. I’m saving up for 2 tickets (one for me and one for Raven) so most probably we will get the gold one. Don’t worry, I will scan it and post it here at menardconnect as soon as I have it :-p

Again special thanks to Marhgil for the buzz 🙂

What are you waiting for? Punta na sa Tindahan ni Aleng Nena para bumili ng … tickets. 🙂

Updates (01.19.2008)

Its confirmed and final 🙂 MTV-Philippines Press conference for the March 7, 2009 Eraserheads Reunion Concert (Part 2) was held this afternoon at Italianni’s restaurant on Bonifacio High Street in Taguig. Venue is set: SM Mall of Asia.

Ely, Marcus, Raimund and Buddy took turns in answering questions from the media and they reiterated that this 2nd Reunion concert will be totally different (and not just a continuation of the August 30, 2008 concert). Ely confirmed that his health is in good condition. The band members estimated that they will be playing around 20+ songs.

Inquirer’s Showbiz and Style have the complete video at their SITE and I just captured the image above. Sorry I cannot embed the video in my blog because I think its in different format (VDO?). Kindly check it out at their site (Its the 3rd video from the gallery as of writing this post).

There’s also a video in youtube but the quality is not yet good and the author will repost. I will embed it here as soon as author posted his updated video.

Updates (01.12.2008)

Diane Ventura (Ely Buendia’s manager) had a phone interview with News on Q (QTV) and confirmed the Eheads Reunion Part 2 concert on March 7. She said Ely was given official go signal by his doctors.

Quoting GMANews.TV report:

“To the fans, I know I’m speaking for the whole band when I say that they’re looking forward to seeing you on March 7. See you there,” Ventura said in a phone interview aired on “News on Q.”

Ventura said the concert would be held to give Eraserheads fans closure.

🙂

I’m so excited!!!

Early this morning I was busy posting about the Eheads Reunion Concert DVD and this news seems to be information overload. And now…

The Eraserheads Reunion Concert Part 2 is now a reality special thanks to MTV and Smart. Dubbed as the “Final Set” it is slated on March 7, 2009. Venue is still in the works. Philstar’s Supreme posted this:

It’s confirmed. The Eraserheads concert “The Final Set” is set.

Save the date: March 7, 2009. The concert is produced by MTV and Smart with the venue yet to be announced.

For now, it’s a tossup between The Fort and SM Mall of Asia grounds.

They’re just about to sign the contract and will have their press conference on January 19.

For the part 2 tickets, sorry no info yet. I’ll post details here as soon as I have them. For now, I’ll settle with playing the Eheads Reunion CD over and over again 🙂

Again special thanks to Marhgil Macuha for the buzz.

Eraserheads Reunion Concert DVD to be released January 31

Posted on January 10, 2009  in Blog Experiences

Wow! The Eraserheads Reunion Concert DVD will be out on January 31, 2009.

Sony BMG Music Entertainment Philippines announced this on their website:

It shall go down local music history as that singular moment where four estranged band members – Ely Buendia, Raimund Marasigan, Buddy Zabala and Marcus Adoro – came together for one spectacular reunion – 08.30.08. One band. One great show. One night only.

The historic performance of the country’s biggest band in the 90s that drew in more than 50,000 people at The Fort Bonifacio Open Field on Aug. 30, 2008, will be immortalized in one DVD – plus bonus features of behind-the-scene footages, rehearsals, etc.

I hope it will include the early morning rehearsals (Sembreak) as well as the funny “Group Hug” cheers of the crowd.

I will definitely grab this DVD for my viewing pleasure and collection and will blog it FTW! Remember my Eheads Reunion Concert CD post?

And my million peso question of the day: Will there be an Eraserheads Reunion Concert Part 2 in 2009???

Special thanks to Marhgil and Azrael for the buzz.

Eraserheads Reunion Concert CD Review

Posted on December 4, 2008  in Reviews

I finally got hold of the Eraserheads Reunion Concert CD today. Raven and I bought it from Odyssey for PHP 305. The cd is manufactured and distributed by Sony BMG. I’m listening to the CD as I write this blog entry and I’m sweetly reliving the Reunion concert moment again 🙂

eraserheads reunion CD

eraserheads reunion CD

The CD quality is great!!! Definitely its not similar to previously posted videos in youtube wherein the sound quality is kinda basag na. It includes my personal favorites: Sembreak, Alapaap, Hey Jay, Kamasupra, and Kaliwete. It also captures some of the funny quotes from the Band (The last 10 seconds countdown, the good night greetings of Ely after the first song, The Merry Christmas greets before the Fruitcake etc). I am just wondering why it did not capture the “Group Hug” chants of the crowd 🙂

Edit: Between tracks 9 and 10, you hear the group hug chants.

Inside cover part 1

Inside cover part 1

Complete Tracklist below:

  • 01 Alapaap
  • 02 Ligaya
  • 03 Sembreak
  • 04 Hey, Jay
  • 05 Harana
  • 06 Fruitcake
  • 07 Toyang
  • 08 Kamasupra
  • 09 Kailan
  • 10 Huwag Kang Matakot
  • 11 Kaliwete
  • 12 With A Smile
  • 13 Shake Yer Head
  • 14 Huwag Mo Nang Itanong
  • 15 Lightyears

cd cover part 2

I may be out of the loop in the music industry nowadays but its worthy to note that inside the CD case is a small leaflet that contains the download instructions for videos, mp3 and ringback tones for mobile phones. Each download ranges from PHP15 to PHP50 (wow nice biz for SonyBMG and the telcos :-p). It also contains the YouTube/SonyBMG PH URL (which I will try to visit later tonight)

To all the Eraserheads fans out there, grab your copy now (in case you haven’t yet). 300+ bucks for 15 songs, its worth it.

And whats in it for me and Raven? Well… we are waiting for the Part 2.
