It is going to be an evening of music, laughter, and nostalgia. That’s how the mood will be on August 27, 2016 as the OPM (Original Pilipino Music) luminaries of the '70s and '80s grace the stage of The Theatre at Solaire in an evening of enduring songs that will surely strike a chord in a concert dubbed as The OPM Legends – The Reunion concert.
The one-night only event will feature Rey Valera, Rico J Puno, Hajji Alejandro, and Marco Sison--the voices that serenaded many love-inspired, hopeless romantics from days not so long ago, and whose songs ruled the airwaves and top charts with their timeless hits.
“This is one of a kind show we all want to look forward to,” said Audie Gemora, Solaire Resort and Casino’s Director for Entertainment. “It’s a perfect balance of beautiful music and fun antics this bunch is widely known for. An evening of total entertainment.”
Unbeknownst to those who may not have been born in that era, "Maging Sino Ka Man," "Tayong Dalawa," and "Kahit Maputi Na Ang Buhok Ko" are just three of the popular hits by legendary singer and songwriter, Rey Valera. His strings of songs have now been musical inspirations and title to several television drama series.
Marco Sison’s “My Love Will See You Through”, “Make Believe”, and “Si Aida, Si Lorna, at Si Fe” have repeatedly made their course in videoke bars and have remained a popular choice.
Before many local singing matinee idols, it was Hajji Alejandro who melted the hearts of many Filipina teenagers with his hits like “Nakapagtataka”, “Kay Ganda Ng Ating Musika”, and “Panakip Butas.” Hajji’s charm on stage earned him the title “kilabot ng mga kolehiyala” of the '70s.
On the other hand, with his signature punch lines and jokes, Rico J Puno is one act you should not miss. Rico’s “Lupa”,“Macho Gwapito”, and “May Bukas Pa” are still considered a favorite these days with the latter made into a theme song of a popular local television soap opera of the same title.
“The concert will surely be a trip down memory lane that will equally appeal to all generations”, said Gemora.
Two years since its launch in 2014, The Theatre at Solaire continues to flourish in the industry that is now building a whole new level of interest especially from international producers.
“Somehow, somewhere there will always be a Filipino talent in every act – be that on stage or off stage. With the most recent Les Miserables, we have seen three Filipinas playing major roles in that sensational production. The Theatre at Solaire continues to be a catalyst in supporting our world class Filipino talents and we are serious in that way”, said Gemora.
“We have so much lined up for the Filipino audience. The Entertainment City is getting livelier and we are making sure that Solaire Resort & Casino is at the forefront of world class performances and shows,” he added.
The OPM Legends – The Reunion Concert is set on August 27, 2016, Saturday, at 8PM, at The Theatre at Solaire. Visit www.ticketworld.com.ph for tickets.
