Wearing fatigue jacket, Elly finally came out on the stage and greeted the crowd while Raimund, Buddy and Marcus headed to their spots. All excitedly shouted to welcome them and some shouted like a respite for the long wait. Without further ado, the Eraserheads played their first song; suddenly all the troubles I experienced in the concert fade away.
It’s my first time to watch them live and I wanted to make the most out of it. So when I heard some people complaining (on the area where I am) to those who stood up to jived with the music as they cannot see the stage, I sneaked in to Platinum Standing area.
It felt nostalgic remembering their music during the 90s. Eraserheads is known as the most influential band in OPM history and I certainly believe so. I describe their music as ‘Ligaw 90’s’. Who wouldn’t remember ‘Pare Ko’, ‘Toyang’ and ‘Ang Huling El Bimbo’? My cousin ate Camille and her husband didn’t miss the chance to watch the concert as well. it the first concert of her baby in her womb.
The crowd became livelier as E-heads play all-time favorite songs like ‘Magasin’, ‘Overdrive’ and ‘Ligaya’. I was hoping for them to play ‘Para sa Masa’ as well but they didn’t. The concert was a great stress reliever that I went home feeling good. Elly said they’re going to come back in SG, bukas!
