Vice Ganda is prepared just in case Pusuan Mo Si Vice Ganda becomes controversial again, just like a previous concert. "Kung mamali, e, ganon talaga. Hindi naman tayo perfect. Aaminin ang pagkakamali at hihingi ng patawad, di ba?"



After a year of being absent from the concert scene, Vice Ganda returns onstage this February 14 for his concert titled Pusuan Mo Si Vice Ganda sa Araneta.

The comedian happily announced this during the January 26 grand media launch at ABS-CBN's 9501 Restaurant, which was attended by PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and other reporters.

When asked why he decided to hold a Valentine concert at the Araneta Coliseum, the 40-year-old TV host explained, "Kasi, last year, hindi ako nagconcert. Noong nilatag yung schedule, natanggal yung concert."

For this reason, Vice's manager, Deo Endrinal, suggested that he should prioritize a concert in early 2017.

Vice recalled his manager telling him, "'Dapat may concert kaagad, hindi pwedeng masyadong matagal dahil hindi ka nakapagconcert last year. Dapat first quarter of 2017, dapat may concert ka na.'

"So nakalatag na talaga yung February 14, nakabook na yung Araneta."

As for his guests, child star Awra Briguela had to be first on the list.

According to Vice, it was Awra who insisted that he should perform in the concert.

He narrated, "Si Awra hinamon ako, hindi ko naman siya matanggihan dahil aawayin daw niya ako pag hindi ko siya sinama.

"Siya mismo ang nakikipagmeeting sa aking production, dahil may nasearch na siya sa Youtube na gusto niyang gawin at gusto daw niya showdown kami.

"Sabi ko, 'Back-to-back concert ba natin ito? Ba't parang ang dami mong gustong gawin?'

"At nakakatawa, gusto daw niya sa simula pa lang lalabas na daw siya, sabi niya, 'Ayoko ng masyadong matagal kasi baka antukin ako.' Kaya gusto niya, first guest siya."

Daniel Padilla, Maja Salvador, Kris Lawrence, Michael Pangilinan, and Daryl Ong are also expected to perform at Vice Ganda's concert.

The comedian quipped, "Makakatulong sila sa pagbibihis ko! Ang hirap magbihis pag walang guest!"

"I WANT TO GO BACK TO BASICS." In 2014, Vice found himself in hot water with the public after he made a "gang rape" joke in his concert at the expense of GMA News executive Jessica Soho.

For this reason, Vice reduced his use of comedy-bar jokes in his 2015 concert.

Instead, he focused on offering performances that channeled concert divas such as Madonna and Katy Perry, among others.

For this 2017 concert, Vice plans go back to his roots.

He said candidly, "Matabil 'to, kasi yung huling concert ko mabait, as requested by the management.

"Kasi sabi ng management, tapos ka na doon sa mga very comedy bar. Gusto namin, production yung mala-Madonna.

"Kaya yun ang ginawa ko nung huling concert na ang laki-laki ng ginastos namin kasi puro prod na malala. Nabigay ko na yun.

"I want to go back to basics, gusto ko yung walanghiyaan, patabilan ng bunganga, barubalan."

The comedian gave a warning to those who will watch his concert: "Kaya nga nireremind ko yung mga manunood, SSSSPG talaga 'to."

SSSSPG is a fictional classification—a play on the classifications given by the MTRCB, or Movie Television and Radio Classification Board—which indicates that the show will require extremely Strong Parental Guidance. 

Vice continued, "Ang dami ko kasing trip na hindi ko pwedeng gawin sa telebisyon, sa pelikula, na pwede kong gawin sa live dahil handa naman yung audience ko dun, e.

"Nakalakihan nila yun, e, na ginagawa ko. Alam nila, yun ang ginagawa ko."

Vice Ganda admitted that he misses doing stand-up comedies in his concerts.

He said, "Actually, namiss ko nga yun kaya parang gusto ko uling gawin yun.

"Kasi alam mo, ang mga tao, napaka-double standard, sobra.

"Noong mga panahong ginawa ko yun, 'Naku, dapat hindi mo ginawa yun kasi ganito.'

"Noong hindi ko na yun ginawa, sinabi nila, 'Ba't wala yung ganun? Hindi tuloy masyadong exciting.'

"Kaya itong mga tao, hindi mo talaga maintindihan. Basta ako, gagawin ko lang yung ano sa panlasa ko.

"Ganun pa rin naman, e, I trust my taste, my judgment.

"Kung mamali, e, gano'n talaga. Hindi naman tayo perfect. Aaminin ang pagkakamali at hihingi ng patawad, di ba?

"Pero ganun pa rin, kung ano yung sa pakiwari ko sa panlasa ko, e, makakapagpatawa ng audience ko, kasi kilala ko yung audience ko, e.

"Alam ko kung paano ko sila papatawanin.

"Pag hindi nila nagustuhan yung narinig nila, ibig sabihin, hindi sila yung audience ko, pumunta lang talaga sila."
