Martin Nievera and Pops Fernandez will make the love month even more romantic by staging a pre-Valentine concert on February 6, 2009 at the Araneta Coliseum. Titled Missing You, this show will offer old and new things for their fans who have waited patiently for the comeback of the Concert King and Queen.
Although the two have already separated and are now leading their own lives, they want to make this concert all about them—their colorful past, their professional lives, and their two sons.
Martin and Pops used to set the stage on fire during their Penthouse Live! days when the two hosted the said late-night musical variety show. In the concert scene, their tandem onstage would always draw huge crowds.
Now, they're ready to serenade their fans again with a fusion of '80s music and modern songs that will tell the story of their lives."It's a little bit of everything, kasi nagtatanong-tanong rin kami sa iba. Siyempre a lot of people are expecting the '80s, of course, our sounds, some theme songs. We added a little bit of everything, tapos sounds that everybody would be familiar with like popular songs of now, popular songs of before. May concept kasi yung show and hopefully the concept works out because is not that the usual Martin and Pops concert," Pops told PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) last January 20 at the ABS-CBN compound.
She points out that she and Martin have matured a lot since their last concert, which was staged six years ago. "It's really more of the Martin and Pops now. Personally, and of course professionally, we both matured and even if touch on the topics of our lives before, we're both matured enough to smile about it and pwede na kaming mag joke about it."
Since it is their reunion concert, they did not invite any other performers onstage except for their two sons, Robin and Ram. "We figured, ang hirap kasi it's a Martin and Pops concert, tapos may papasok na hindi naman medyo kasali dun sa story," explains Pops. "Baka hindi maging part of the concept, so we figured kami na lang."
