Everyone was excited about the rumor: Eraserheads Reunion. Finally!
And then weeks later, rumor was that the Eraserheads Reunion was canceled. Due to pressures from the anti-smoking campaign led by the Department of Health, the organizer Philip Morris backed out from producing the show. For all Eraserheads fans out there, just like moi, this was an ultimate letdown.
But it’s now pushing through!!! This time with a different producer. Eheads drummer Raymund Marasigan himself made the announcement: The Eraserheads are “most definitely” pushing through with the reunion show. On schedule. At the right venue.

subject: [subsandwich] eraserheads aug 30 08 confirmed
after 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 it’s 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 don’t 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. i’m just the drummer.
btw. i just got home from the last rehearsal. the band is cooking. we will see you all on the 30th.
