Why ELY BUENDIA "Hates" 'Ang Huling El Bimbo: The Musical'

MYX Philippines

Posted at July 30, 2018

The much-talked-about musical Ang Huling El Bimbo which features the music of Eraserheads has officially started its run!

Having drawn positive reactions from critics and audience alike, we asked the frontman of the most iconic 90s OPM band himself as to what he has to say about the staging of their classic hits after the gala night last Thursday, July 26. 

Apparently, he hates it - but in the most positive way, that is. 

“I hate it. Pina-iyak ako eh. No, but seriously I think it’s a testament to the creative ability of the performers, the writers, the staff - everyone. From the lighting, sets, to the music - spot on. I was on the edge of my seat basically not just storywise but also kung paano kaya nila gagamitin ‘tong song na ‘to. It was really, really a very fun experience,” he said in a MYXclusive interview. 

Ely Buendia also assured those who will come and watch the show that they will surely have a great time all throughout whether or not they are fans of Eraserheads. 

Produced by Full House Production, Ang Huling El Bimbo: The Musical runs until September 2 at the Newport Performing Arts Theater. For tickets, just go to or at the RWM Box Office.
