The Eraserheads will reunite for the second time on March 7 to settle unfinished business following the abrupt finish of their highly successful reunion concert last August 30, 2008 in Taguig.
In a phone interview with QTV's news program News on Q, Diane Ventura, Eraserheads frontman Ely Buendia's partner and manager, confirmed that the phenomenal ‘90s local rock act will regroup anew in a concert dubbed as the Final Set. The venue and other details have yet to be revealed. MTV Philippines is reportedly handling production duties for the reunion sequel.
"To the fans, I know I'm speaking for the whole band when I say that they're looking forward to seeing you on March 7. Part of history. See you there," Diane said in a short message.
ONE LAST HURRAY. Composed of Ely, Buddy Zabala, Marcus Ador, and Raimund Marasigan, the Eraserheads broke up in 2002 due to creative differences. The band's musical legacy grew exponentially since the falling out until the four decided to stage a one-night reunion concert last year.
Ely unfortunately experienced chest pains and reportedly collapsed backstage after completing the band's first set of 15 songs. The band was supposed to dish out 30 songs chronicling the bulk of the quartet's entire catalog.
The upcoming concert will serve as the continuation of the previous event where thousands of fans gathered at the Bonifacio Global City Open Field to witness the rock spectacle.
As the title suggests and as the band stated last year, the reunion concert is a gift to the fans for their tireless support long after the Eraserheads ceased to exist as one creative unit. More importantly, the band members hope that the concert would finally render closure to the entire Eraserheads saga.
