Talk about luck! Eat Bulaga Dabarkads Maine Mendoza will be leaving for Los Angeles, California this weekend to watch her favorite band Coldplay perform live!
The news was confirmed by TAPE President/CEO and Maine's manager Tony Tuviera, also known as "Mr. T," in an interview with entertainment columnist Ricky Lo for Philippine Star.
Coldplay—composed of Chris Martin, Jonny Buckland, Guy Berryman, Will Champion, and Phil Harvey—is currently on the third leg of its A Head Full of Dreams tour in the United States.
According to Mr. T, Maine wanted to watch Coldplay's concert in Europe while they were shooting for her film Imagine You And Me with Alden Richards in Italy.
However, the plan didn't push through because of time constraints. Alden won't be joining Maine on her trip this weekend.
Mr. T also clarified that Maine's U.S. trip is not a "bonus" after the success of their movie but rather, a fulfillment of a promise.
During their stay in Italy, Mr. T promised to her that she will be able to watch the band perform live.
Mr. T told Ricky, "I told Maine that on Coldplay's next concert, I will make sure that she could watch it." The talent manger added, "I promised to pay for her airfare."
Meanwhile, Coldplay is expected to perform in Manila next year. The dates for their Asian tour is yet to be revealed but the band is expected to perform in the Philippines this 2017.
Here's more good news: Filipinos will be able to watch Coldplay's L.A. concert this weekend.
This Sunday, August 21 (Manila time), Globe subscribers can watch the Los Angeles leg of the band's concert tour at Rose Bowl Stadium.
MMI Live, in partnership with Globe, will livestream the concert from 12 noon onwards through this site: www.youtube.com/globeph.
