ERASERHEADS TO PERFORM IN FINAL REUNION IN THE PHILIPPINES

The upcoming concert of Filipino rock icons, the Eraserheads, will be their last in the Philippines as confirmed by the producers.

“This will be the last reunion of the group that’s why we want to give the fans one last epic show,” Francis Lumen, one of the producers of the concert and president of WEU, said.

This was confirmed by Diane Ventura, one of the co-producers of the concert and manager of lead vocalist Ely Buendia. “This is definitely the last reunion of the Eraserheads in the Philippines,” Ventura said.

The show was aptly dubbed as Huling El Bimbo, signaling that it is indeed the group’s final performance. Two weeks after the initial release of tickets, producers expanded the capacity to accommodate more concert goers.

Lead vocalist Ely Buendia said that the Huling El Bimbo isn’t like any other previous reunion concerts. “Because we love our fans, we want to give them something different here. It’s the beginning of a new chapter in our lives and we also want them to have a special memory of Eraserheads as we move forward,” Buendia said.

The concert promises an unforgettable experience of Eraserheads including an 18-piece orchestra, a drone show and a hologram of the late Francis M. The reunion concert is Eraserheads’ gift to fans as they kick-off the Christmas spirit before the yuletide celebrations.

The Huling El Bimbo – Eraserheads Reunion Concert 2022 is a production by WEU Event Management Services, Ant Savvy Creatives and Entertainment Inc., DVent Productions and Myriad Entertainment Corporation. The event is presented by SMART, Coke Studio, PLDT, Angkas, and Maya. This concert is co-presented by SM Supermalls, and in participation with San Miguel Corporation and Okada Manila.

Concert Round-up: See You Again Soon, Super Junior (Postponed #SS9inManila)

Words by: Ava Sumortin
Photos by: Seth Valenzuela

Filipino ELFs have been waiting for August 6 for a long time. After almost three years, Super Junior was supposed to bring their Super Junior World Tour – Super Show 9 to Manila. However, due to unfortunate circumstances, the K-pop group has postponed their show and instead held a meet-and-greet with fans.


SuJu’s Siwon and Eunhyuk were not able to fly to Manila. Siwon tested positive for COVID-19, and late last night, the group announced that Eunhyuk’s father passed away.


The arena, a sea of sapphire blue lightsticks, was somber at first. ELFs also put black ribbons on their lightsticks. Kring Kim, event host, welcomed everyone and talked to the crowd before SuJu graced the stage.


Each member connected with the crowd with their speeches. Even though they were grieving and emotional, they asked for the fans’ understanding. ELFs chanted “kwenchana” (tr: It’s okay) in return. They promised to return with Siwon and Eunhyuk next time.


Leeteuk said their concert is a show that gives ELFs hope. He then announced that tonight’s Super Show is not canceled. It’s just postponed. “You just bought the tickets early,” Leeteuk said.


Super Junior sang three ballads as a gift to their fans: My Wish, Callin’, and 같이 걸을까 (More Days with You).
After their set, leader Leeteuk addressed the crowd and thanked the ELFs, who have supported them and walked with them for almost 18 years.


Super Junior World Tour – Super Show 9: Road in Manila was supposed to be the group’s sixth concert in the Philippines. Filipino ELFs, hold on to those tickets because a new date will be announced, and those tickets will be honored. According to PULP Live World, more information regarding the new show will be released soon.

Coming next month: The Hammingtons fly to Manila for first fanmeeting

This July is a good time for a family bonding activity as South Korea’s cutest trio is coming to Manila!

For the first time, Sam, William, and Bentley are coming to meet Filipino fans at The Hammingtons in Juanderland: Fanmeeting in Manila. The event is scheduled to take place on July 17, 2022, Sunday, 3 PM at the New Frontier Theater.

The South Korean stars rose to fame in 2016 when they joined the roster for “The Return of Superman,” a reality show featuring celebrity dads and their children. Initially, it was only Sam and William (now five years old) who appeared on the show. Bentley (now four years old) joined a year later after he was born.

The three quickly became fan favorites and eventually brought home the prestigious “Grand Prize” (locally known as “Daesang”) at the 2018 KBS Entertainment Awards along with the other cast.

Earlier this year, the family decided to step down from the show to pursue other opportunities. One of which is “Wilbengers: Suspicious Camping Commotion,” an animated superhero film starring William and Bentley, together with their dad. The family also recently launched their new variety show titled “The Hammingtons’ Dream Closet” which airs on the ENA channel.

Outside of mainstream media, the boys are busy with their very own Youtube channel, “THE WILLBEN SHOW,” which has now amassed more than 350,000 subscribers.

Despite their packed schedule, The Hammingtons are excited to come to Manila.

“This is an amazing opportunity and we are so looking forward to meeting our fans. The last few years have been really difficult due to restrictions but finally being able to have the chance to meet some of our international fans is so exciting,” shared Sam Hammington, the family patriarch.

Sam is a New Zealander-Australian comedian who gained stardom in the South Korean reality television show “Real Men.” In 2013, he won the “Best Male Newcomer” award for his amazing performance on the show.

With only a few weeks until the fanmeet, Sam shared how the Hammingtons have begun preparation.

“We are not trying to overly prepare as we want to have an authentic experience while we are there. However, we have been trying to learn some Tagalog but it is not as easy as we thought it would be.”

Sam also shared that they’re eager to try some of the delicious food recommended by the fans; most notably, “chocolate rice” or champorado in Tagalog.

When asked how the kids reacted to the news, the 44-year-old star candidly answered, “To be honest, I have told them but I don’t think they quite comprehend where we are going. They are excited to go on an airplane to another country. But when we get there I am sure they will be excited.”

As a parting message to fans, Sam had this to say: “First and foremost, thank you for supporting us in everything we do. We appreciate you all, and without you, we wouldn’t be able to do what we do. This is our opportunity to thank you in person and hope to meet as many of our fans as possible.”

The Hammingtons’ fanmeeting in Manila is just one of the many Asian stops lined up for the family. With WILD Group now managing their international activities, fans can look forward to seeing more of the trio in-person and on various media platforms across Southeast Asia.

Tickets will be available this Saturday via TicketNet online. Prices for the fanmeet range from PHP2, 850 (Balcony) to PHP6, 500 (MVP). The Hammingtons in Juanderland: Fanmeeting in Manila is presented by CDM Entertainment.
