Free head-shaving at Duterte-Cayetano concert
MANILA, Philippines – Supporters of Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte and Senator Alan Peter Cayetano can have their heads shaved for free at a concert to be held in Taguig on Sunday, November 29.
“Mad for Change: Tunog ng Pagbabago” will be held along Chateau Road, McKinley West in Fort Bonifacio from 5 pm to 9 pm. Entrance is free.
Head-shaving has become a form of declaring support for Duterte ever since his eldest daughter, Sara, shaved her head during the week of candidacy filing. This is seen as an expression of full support for her father's decision on the presidency.
Since then, Davao City councilors and other supporters have shaved their heads.
There will be barbers at the concert venue for those who wish to go bald, said organizers.
“Libreng pakalbo” (free head-shaving) is only one of other activities lined up during the concert. Participants can also have t-shirts printed for free. Organizers only request that they bring their own shirt.
Artists set to perform include Jimmy Bondoc, Luke Mejares, Paolo Santos, Thor, and Kris Angelica.
According to Cayetano’s staff, both Duterte and Cayetano are expected to make an appearance.
The concert was initially another event to convince Duterte to run for president. Artists were set to perform a song specially composed for the Davao mayor.
But on November 21, Duterte announced his intention to join the presidential race.
Duterte, however, is yet to finalize his presidential bid by filing his Certificate of Candidacy and accepting the nomination of a political party to be their substitute presidential candidate. – Rappler.com
