Eraserheads 2022 concert increases capacity to bring more fans together

More tickets are now available for more fans to watch the Huling El Bimbo – Eraserheads Reunion Concert 2022 after producers expanded the capacity for each section and created an additional General Admission section. The highly anticipated concert is set to happen on December 22, 2022 at the SMDC Festival Grounds in Parañaque City.

The millions of fans that followed the group over its three-decade run immediately snapped up the 50,000 tickets that were made available last October. Believing that it will be the last reunion of the iconic 90’s band, fans clamored for more tickets or additional concert dates.

“Heeding the call of the fans, the producers and the members of the band agreed to increase the capacity of the concert venue in order for more fans to watch them live. This is not just a regular concert, but a shared experience of the millions of fans and generations that grew up listening to their music,” Francis Lumen, producer of the concert, said.

The concert promises to highlight the Eraserheads that the fans loved over the years as well as showcase them in a different light with new arrangements of their greatest hits accompanied by an 18-piece orchestra. The band will also pay tribute to its honorary fifth member, the late Francis Magalona, by performing with him on stage through the magic of hologram.

The Huling El Bimbo – Eraserheads Reunion Concert 2022 will be the first reunion concert of the Eraserheads after their last public performance in 2009. At the speed of fans purchasing tickets, those who plan to watch the concert better grab their tickets while they still can. Tickets are available at all SM Tickets outlets and online.

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.

Head In The Clouds Music and Arts Festival offers plenty of bang for the buck

Announced by 88rising and Live MNL last August, the Head In The Clouds Music & Arts Festival is presented by Globe with GCash as major sponsor and will take place on Friday, December 9 and Saturday, December 10, 2022 at SM Festival Grounds Parañaque City.


The festival will feature a stellar lineup of world class headliners including Joji, Jackson Wang, NIKI, Rich Brian, eaJ, and YOASOBI. The festival will also include live performances from BIBI, MANILA GREY, Warren Hue, Ylona Garcia, GUAPDAD 4000, ATARASHII GAKKO!, MILLI, Zack Tabudlo and many more. Special guest is ​​Grammy-winning hitmaker and electronic producer ZEDD.


For a two-day general admission pass of P12,888, fans will gain access to these artists (over 20 scheduled performers) who will take to the stage and play for 45 to 55 minutes each. That roughly translates to about 18 hours of premium experience over the course of two days.


Those who opt to buy the VIP pass at P15,888 willl get plenty of value for money to watch and enjoy every performance: early entry via their dedicated VIP entry lanes to access the main stage and second stage, designated VIP restrooms, additional shade and seating areas, access to exclusive food & beverage vendors and select festival merchandise for purchase.


And because Head In The Clouds is much more than a music festival, fans will also be treated to specially-curated food as well as immersive and Instagram-worthy installations that should keep them engaged in between performances.


The Head In The Clouds experience, of course, is much more fun when enjoyed in the company of close friends, siblings and relatives. As a year-ender barkada get-together, it really doesn’t get any better than this. Tickets now on sale, passes can be purchased HERE.


Since its widely-acclaimed debut in the US back in 2018, 88rising’s Head In The Clouds festival has emerged as one of the most anticipated annual events for fans of both music and the arts. The festival is unique in the sense that it specifically specializes on Asian music and culture from all around the around. No surprise it was eventually hailed as the “Asian Coachella.”


Every staging of Head In The Clouds, has in fact, received unanimous praise. In 2018, the very first HITC festival was hailed by The Bull’s Eye as “an unforgettable experience…one of the best musical events” of the year. Reviewing in 2019, the Los Angeles Times High School Insider noted that “the festival, which isn’t just about music, more garnered 25,000 people — more than double the amount” of the previous year.
In 2021, a year after the Covid-19 pandemic broke out, Uproxx hailed Head In The Clouds as “Los Angeles’ next great music festival while just recently, Concert Updater said the festival, “simply lived up to the hype.” “Everything from the music, the food, the crowd, and the overall experience was absolute perfection,” the site further posted in its review of the festival that took place at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California last August.


Filipino fans will now get the chance to experience what everyone else in the US was raving about. This year, Head In The Clouds is expanding its horizons and taking all its euphoria to Southeast Asia with two separate dates in Jakarta and Manila happening this December.

Ben&Ben’s First Major Concert Moved to December 18 at the SMDC Festival Grounds

The highly-anticipated first major concert by award-winning collective Ben&Ben that was postponed last September 3 due to poor weather has been rescheduled for Sunday, December 18 at the SMDC Festival Grounds (in front of the Solaire Resort & Casino Manila). 
 
In a statement released through Ovation Productions, the producer of the concert, Ben&Ben apologized to the fans who were eagerly anticipating the show that was originally supposed to be a send-off for Ben&Ben as they embarked on their first ever North American tour that is slated for this September to October 2022.
 
“We want to extend our gratitude to those who showed and lined up outside CCP Open Grounds last September 3 despite the inclement weather conditions. We also want to thank the rest of the ticket buyers for their patience and understanding,” said the band. 
  
“We are delighted to announce that the Ben&Ben Send-Off Concert will now be held on December 18 at SMDC Festival Grounds.”
 
Ovation Productions and Ben&Ben also released guidelines for those who purchased tickets.
 
Option A: Carry forward your existing tickets as they will be honored. Previously purchased tickets are still valid for the new date with no further action required. 
 
Option B: Request for a full refund. Ticket holders who are unable to make the new date will be allowed a refund from the period of September 12-30, 2022. Emails will be sent to ticket holders notifying them of how to apply for the refund from 12 Sep 2022 onwards.
 
Fans may contact Ovation Hotline numbers at (+63 969 632 7948) or email support@ovation.ph for further inquiries. 
 


The December 18 concert will be helmed by Ben&Ben creative director Karen dela Fuente, who will be working with director Paolo Valenciano as well as Pat Tiu of Bad Student and Big Bulb team. Shakira Villa-Symes will once more serve as lighting director. 
 
Prior to the departure for their North American Tour, Ben&Ben recently released their latest non-album single, “The Ones We Once Loved” which according to the band’s co-vocalist and guitarist Miguel Guico, “is a song about closure and the courage to admit when a love isn’t meant to be.”
 
The collective also did a video collaboration with Indonesian singer-songwriter Pamungkas for a re-imagination of Ben&Ben’s “Paninindigan Kita” into an English song, “Stand By You” last August. 
 
Ben&Ben is made up of twin brothers Miguel and Paolo Guico on acoustic guitars and vocals, Poch Barretto on guitar, Keifer Cabugao on violin, Andrew de Pano and Toni Muñoz on percussion, Pat Lasaten on keyboards, Agnes Reroma on bass, and Jam Villanueva on drums.
 
The nine-piece collective has endeared itself to their legion of fans for their heartfelt songs, solid musicianship and their electric live performances, and their dedicated fan engagement. Their repertoire of songs sings of love, peace, friendship, and positivity.
 
Ovation Productions’ Ben&Ben Send-Off Concert is sponsored by Angkas and Smart in cooperation with Pru-Life UK and TapGo TV as its major media partner.
