CHITO MIRANDA Reminisces About Parokya Ni Edgar's First And Only Major Concert Produced By MYX!
Chito Miranda couldn't help but reminisce about the good old days after seeing the MYXclusive Facebook video of Parokya Ni Edgar’s performance of “Bagsakan” with Gloc-9 and the late Francis Magalona during their 2007 concert Matira Matibay.
On PNE’s official Facebook page, the vocalist shared MYX Philippines’ post and reflected on the band's 15th anniversary show which was held at the Folk Arts Theater. “This was our 1st and only major concert,” wrote Chits who also explained why they rarely do huge shows.
“Gusto ko kasi panatiliing low-profile ang Parokya. Gusto ko ma-maintain yung garage band feel/status ng banda kasi feeling ko mas-"cool", and at the same time, mas mababa ang expectations sa banda na hindi major act 🤘🏻😁...and honestly, ayoko lang din siguro aminin, pero ayoko yung pressure of doing a major concert kasi takot ako na baka walang manood. Eventually, MYX and Universal Records were able to convince us...our only demand was that we'd have total creative control.”
Chito also shared fun facts about the unforgettable gig which had a “street setting”. Did you know that he suffered from sore eyes on the day of the concert?
Another big revelation? The Master Rapper flew all the way from Hong Kong just to be part of the now-historic event!
