At the Eraserheads Reunion Concert

Here’s a run down of what transpired at the “Eraserheads: The Reunion” – the official name of the event.

  • Picci and I arrived at the venue, The Fort Open Field, around 4pm.
  • We immediately went to VIP area to check our names.
  • 1st security stop: Security guards checked our belongings.
  • We went to the “VIP Scanning” area to register.
  • Upon registration, the usher put a green paper-sticker type of band on our wrist that served as our “VIP pass.”
  • We decided to check the VIP area at the right side of venue).
  • 2nd security stop: Security personnel in yellow shirt conducted a full-body frisk.
  • 3rd security stop: Usher checks our VIP wrist bands for signs of tampering. Usher warned us that damaged / tampered VIP wrist bands will not be honored.
  • 4th security stop: Another security personnel in yellow shirt conducted a full-body frisk.
  • We walked toward the stage. About 50-100 people are already standing by.
  • We stayed near the barricade that divides the VIP section to the SVIP. Surprisingly, we’re just about 20 meters away from the stage. Not bad! Not bad at all!!!
  • Picci and I decided to eat at T.G.I. Friday’s and watched the Ateneo – NU game (Round 2 of UAAP 71) with some of the Ateneo Hecklers. Ateneo won 83-58.
  • We went back to the VIP section around 6pm.
  • We were asked to enter thru the left side of the VIP; making as walk a whole block.
  • We went thru the 4 layers of tight security before finally entering the VIP section on the left side.
  • Asked the security personnel to allow as to transfer to the right side, since our friend, Jorem, was on that side.
  • We were reunited with Jorem. VIP area was already packed.
  • A few minutes past 8pm, the 10-minute countdown started. It was the longest 10 minutes of my life!
  • Finally, Buddy, Markus, Raimund and Ely! Six (6) long years I’ve waited!
