According to the STAR source, all the original members (photo) are performing — Ely Buendia, Buddy Zabala, Marcus Adoro and Raimund Marasigan.
This piece of good news should make the Eraserheads fans very happy.
Said to be the ‘greatest Pinoy band,’ the Eraserheads will sing all their hit songs, including Alapaap, Toyang and Ang Huling El Bimbo.
So much water, so to speak, has flowed under the bridge since the band broke up years ago.
Ely, who survived a heart attack two years ago, has formed two bands, The Mongols (which didn’t last long) and Pupil (still playing).
‘It took one big company to bring the former band members together,’ said the source who is keeping the company’s identity ‘confidential’ for the time being.
Really now, don’t the Eraserheads fans wish that the band would stay together not just for a one-night-only concert but for good...for old time’s sake?— Ricky Lo

ERASERHEADS REUNION CONCERT!”How to get tickets?
Ok it is confirmed that one of the greatest Pinoy bands will reunite for one night only on August 30 at the CCP grounds.
Now the question is where do we get tickets for the Eraserheads Reunion Concert? It says in the Eraserheads mailing list that Marlboro is sponsoring the said concert and the tickets are free to download. So what you do is go to the Marlboro website and sign-up to be included on their “red list”. You need to be 18 years old and older to register. You will also be asked to submit a scanned image of your valid ID (i.e. drivers license, passport, etc.) as proof of your age. Once you’re on the red list, then all you have to do is wait.
