Eraserheads reunion concert - Sad news after the 1st set

Yes it is true, I know that everyone of you saw the breaking news that Ely Buendia was rushed to the hospital after 15 songs. And then during the 20 minute break, members of the band, event organizers and Ely's sister showed up on stage and annouced to us that Ely was rushed to the hospital due to his bad condition we noticed during his performance, he becomes emotional on some part of the song, and I know he is crying during the song "Light years", which he lost his balance after removing the guitar and to rest after the 1st set. Then we didn't expected that the condition was worst.

then the organizers apologizes to us, and declares that the concert will end on the 1st set.
and hope that we understand on the situation. Then everyone got in a moment of silence, praying for Ely's health. then we are asked to leave the venue and now the concert ended.'

everyone was sad and we no longer can't do anything but leave.

will post video of that announcement later.

here are some photos of the concert while ago.

more to come tomorrow.

we are here in krispy kreme in boni high, and using RG's asus eeepc and krispy kreme wifi

on the other note

The Line
The ticket line at NBS Megamall had reached the 3rd floor of the mall, many ticket buyers fall in line just to buy tickets, some people noticed that the service of getting the ticket is so slow, I know it will be slow, because they need to print the ticket and check if they have stocks. Heard also yesterday that they needed to re-stock the tickets and it got ran out after a hundred of people who bought it yesterday. From 20 people in line in the morning, up to a hundred in the evening, multiply it and thats number of people coming for the concert tonight.

The Dawn
I was so stupid to go home early last night, but its okay because I'm already dead tired and needed to rest. Marc and my sister Misyel texted me and said that they got in touch with Buddy Zabala, bassist for the Eraserheads, and me forgot that Buddy will be there at the 4th Backdoor Ventures Arts and Music festival for the The Dawn band, and then there.. they had a photo with Buddy and said to each other "see you tomorrow". you can see the Dawn's photo last night here

read her blog here

and also before I end my blog post. check out the video below shared to us by crosspoint who just posted this link in luiskatigbak's multiply, which I read that he just watched a warm up practice of the Eheads last night.

Eraserheads reunion concert 2008 - I got spoiled for the concert program

I just heard that there is still a possibility that the concert can be postponed or cancelled, due to that the event is still tomorrow and still more time to pull out the event, I just talk to some people and the security is super tight, because there are some protesters will be there outside the event, I think they are the tobacco-DOH ek ek protesters, I dont know what's the name of their group.

I just wish that everyone will be safe, and wait! there's a big line now in NBS Megamall, many people are in line buying the concert tickets, will provide photos later , as my photographer is there to take pictures in Megamall.

Eraserheads reunion concert 2008 - preview venue of the concert ground in Global City

We just went to Global City open grounds for a short preview of the venue of the Eraserheads 2008 concert and It was awesome to see the whole concert grounds. It looks like a giant space port and we all the lights hanging on top, wires and also LED lights at the back of the stage, looks like that we are expecting a big special effects for the concert, and I'm very excited now for Saturday.

Here's my video blog at the concert ground.

as you can see, there are 16 entrances for concert goers, and it includes the general admission, patron and VIP entrances, the VIP entrance is located infront of the side of the stage, while others are located on the far side of the stage.

The place is big! and we just inspected the area, and saw some cool spot where you can take photos even that you are outside of the venue. The concert stage is really like a space port and the one lacking in the stage design is Mazinger Z or Mekanda Robot standing beside it hahahahah.

might go there again this morning to shoot it in the day time, I went there with my friends Marc and RG just to take a photo of it and see it at night time, We went there on the wrong timing, because the organizers just left and we like to talk to them if we can get a media pass hahahaha...

here are some of my photos in my album at ( link will be posted later)

Eraserheads reunion concert 2008 - Ely Buendia's mom died of cardiac arrest this morning

I just read this in the Eheads mailing list, and everyone are already praying for Ely's mom, to Ely and his family. Many people are suggesting to postpone the concert for Saturday, but now theres a big discussion in the mailing list that what will be the next step for Ely.

condolence to Ely and to his family.

also, Jim Ayson's email post is now being forwarded to all bloggers via sent by comments and private messages, I too received it 5 times already, and here's Jim's post

Hi guys - I got a message from Sancho saying Ely’s mom died this morning - went into a cardiac arrest after surgery. The guy is in grief so prayers, condolences for the man might be in order to give him strength and solace. Those of you who have lost parents know what I mean.


Web comics : The Sith TV - R2D2 vs. Wolverine

check out my impromptu photo web comics featuring Mcdonalds Happy Meal of Star Wars Clone Wars. You may click the link below and scroll down to read the caption of the photos as a web comics. I just created this web comics with out a script, and just rely on the photos I took, the toy has 8 designs and the half of it is composed of Star Wars characters like Yoda, R2D2, Anakin and Darth Vader, other 4 is composed of vehicles and ships like the gunner and other space craft from Star Wars. The character toys are like bubble heads in super deformed forms, they are like keychains that has a string on top of it and you can open then and the body acts like a coin purse compartment. Really cute, so I grabbed two characters and maybe another two characters later.


Darth Vader: Welcome to the Sith TV!

R2D2 : we wooo we woo weeeee
