Eraserheads Reunion Concert in Cinemas
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 countryÆs 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 shown in movie theaters starting Nov. 26 simultaneously nationwide.
Eraserheads is again about to make history as the only OPM band to immortalize their performance on the big screen, a feat never before achieved by any local band or artist. The soundtrack of the film, brought to us by Sony BMG Music Entertainment, is already available at all record outlets nationwide.
ôEraserheads Reunion Concert: The Movieö is guaranteed to relive the glorious moments of Aug. 30, starting with the countdown to signal the beginning of the show, until it was unexpectedly cut short due to ElyÆs failing health. The band failed to come back on stage after the 15-minute intermission preceding the first set after Ely was rushed to the hospital for extreme chest pains.
It will be remembered that Ely was under a lot of pressure at the time of the concertÆs staging. His Mom Lizette Buendia passed away two days before the show.
The crowdÆs extraordinary display of understanding and support to the band was also caught on video. No one displayed any violent reaction, which was common to rock concerts the world over, but instead, the crowd offered prayers, and respectful applause when the showÆs cancellation was announced.
But given all that transpired, ôEraserheads: Reunion Concertö boasts of outstanding production value. The state-of-the-art sounds, lights, and stage. The audience that night were so thrilled to find themselves drowned out by the outstanding display of lights and fireworks. It was truly a magnificent event, to say the least.
All these, plus the thousands of adoring fans caught on camera, will be relived all over again in ôEraserheads: The Reunion Concertö on the big screen starting Nov. 26 at your favorite movie houses. DonÆt fail to catch it!
