A week before the end of My Husband's Lover, GMA Network's phenomenal gay-themed primetime series, its cast members mounted a concert dubbed One More Try at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
Dennis Trillo, Tom Rodriguez, and Carla Abellana led the cast members who took part in the two-hour show held last Saturday, October 12.
Before the show started, a humorous warning was flashed on the big screen: "Ang programang ito ay SPG: super pasasalamat ng mga girlash."
To set the mood of the concert, a topless guy came out onstage playing a violin.
Kuh Ledesma, who plays Elaine Soriano in the series, kicked off the show by singing the theme song of MHL, "One More Try," as clips from the series were shown in the big screens.
The three lead stars—Dennis, Tom, and Carla—then addressed the crowd gathered at the Big Dome.
"Ngayong gabi, ipaparamdam ni Lally ang pagmamahal niya para kay Vincent," said Carla, referring to Tom's character who is torn between his wife (played by Carla) and his gay lover, Eric (played by Dennis).
For his part, Tom promised, "I'm sure makaka-relate kayo sa mga songs na kakantahin niya para sa dalawang tao na mahal niya—ang asawa niya na si Lally at lalo na, siyempre, para sa love of his life, Eric."
Dennis faced Tom and asked, "Naku naman, Beh, ngayon pa lang kinikilig na 'ko, paano pa kaya kung nag-duet na tayo?"
"Beh" is the now-famous term of endearment of Vincent and Eric.
Carla then told the audience, "This is our way of saying thank you para sa lahat na nagbuhos ng suporta para sa amin."
After singing an upbeat song, Carla again addressed the audience, "Siguro alam n'yo kung bakit ako na-in love kay Vincent. He's a gentleman, may pinag-aralan, mabait, and most of all, he makes me laugh."
Next, Tom gave his rendition of Bruno Mars's "Just the Way You Are."
After his song, Tom also shared his thoughts about the woman who plays his wife in the series:
"Alam n'yo, hindi naman mahirap mahalin si Lally. Ideal wife siya, pero kahit anong gawin ko, may ibang itinitibok ang puso ko."
