After much bullcrap we had to put up with from that cancer stick-manufacturing company that was supposedly putting one of Manila’s biggest bands back together for a reunion gig, we get an update regarding tickets, a new team behind it and new direction for the concert.

Last Friday, word spread all over Plurkville that the most anticipated Eraserheads one-night only reunion gig was cancelled. This after the Department of Health refused to issue a permit. And many a plurker/E-heads fan began getting belligerent regarding the matter, and you really can’t blame us.

Then yesterday, everything went 360 on us and the concert was again back on track, thanks to MTV  Philippines who took over where our cancer stick-manufacturing friends took us nowhere before entirely disengaging.

Here’s the e-mail statement from E-heads drummer Raymund Marasigan sent to the Sandwich mailing list that same day —

dear everybodyafter much ado. the eraserheads concert is most definitely pushing through.

philip morris and its brands have pulled out from the concert. but another company is taking over the production. the turn over started
yesterday and they have already started work on the site in the fort. so you can check.

there are good news and bad news.

unfortunately its no longer free. all the long winded registration procedures in the red nation site is now void.

the good news is that the age limit is now 12 years old (for safety reasons)and tickets will be sold so you dont have to wait for confirmation and what not.

the official announcement and ticketing details will come out in major newspapers and on the radio on tuesday.

these are the only details i know for now so no need to email me. im just the drummer.

This got everybody’s pulse pumping like some drunk, horny fucktard walking around Quezon Ave in search of anything with a pussy that would let them hump for their wallet crumbs. Forget that it’s no longer free because honestly, we don’t fucking care! As long as we get to watch the band again.

And if that wasn’t enough, Oddyssey Live, a site also doing an E-heads concert watch (a well-informed, well-connected and constantly updated one with a cool countdown widget, unlike what this disshelved, ill-equipped blog and my schedule can muster to accomplish. Kudos to them!), has posted an update less than an hour ago which the site keeper has disseminated along various other mailing lists.

Here it is, fanboy. Read, rejoice and start worrying where’d you’d get the cash fast!

A couple of minutes ago i got a message saying information that made me jump out of my seat!  It said that MTV Philippines has taken over the show of the Eraserheads reunion concert and that ticket prices have been changed to P800 and P1300!  Immediately i made the call to MTV to find out if these reports were true…indeed they are!!!

It has officially been confirmed that the Eraserheads One Night only Reunion concert has been taken over by MTV Philippines!  After Marlboro pulled out, it seems like MTV took on the responsibility of doing the show and giving the fans what they want!!!  Not only that, but ticket prices are also now at P800 and P1300.  Tickets will be sold at ticketworld starting august 28 and you can call them for inquiries at 891-9999.

I know im the first one to release this info and many of you may not believe me but this news comes directly from MTV’s head honcho!  Believe it or not!!!
