The Eraserheads reunite to play their well-loved songs at a PLDT and Smart event called 'A New Day'

MANILA, Philippines – This Eraserheads “reunion” isn’t their first since they broke up in 2002. But it’s always a big deal when Ely Buendia, Buddy Zabala, Marcus Adoro, and Raimund Marasigan get together and perform as the Eraserheads.

On Monday, June 13, the former band reunited to perform for the crowd at “A New Day,” a PLDT and Smart event at the Makati Shangri-La. The telecommunications companies unveiled their new logos there.

“We’re definitely getting too old for this sh-t,” said frontman Ely Buendia at one point, as the crowd asked for one more song.

After more insistence from the crowd, Ely gave in: “Hindi, hindi (no, no), you’re not old, we’re not old,” he said, before playing the first strains of “With a Smile.”





The Eraserheads played more of their classics that night, too, including “Ang Huling El Bimbo” and “Superproxy.”

The group previously had a one-off, full-length reunion concert in August 2008 at the Bonifacio Global City open field. That was cut short, however, as Ely was rushed to the hospital. The continuation of this previous concert, dubbed “The Final Set,” was held in March 2009.

They released a two-track CD with the September 2014 issue of Esquire Philippines, which included the songs, “Sabado” and “1995.” –
