There’s also a press release from the new promoter who’s co-producing the event with Sony-BMG.
RADIOHEAD MEDIA SOLUTIONS, INC. THE NEW PROMOTER OF ERASERHEADS: THE REUNION
Radiohead Media Solutions, Inc. announces the acquisition of the concert rights to the much awaited one-night-only Eraserheads reunion this coming Saturday, 30 August 2008. The Reunion is to be slated at the Bonifacio Global City Open Field.
Tickets are priced at PHP 800 and 1300. For ticket reservation call TicketWorld at 891-9999 or log on to www.ticketworld.com.ph and www.radiohead.ph.
With that, ticket prices are now lowered to 800 pesos (back part) and 1,300 pesos (VIP area) contrary to what was posted earlier at my “Sony-BMG and the Eraserheads Reunion Concert” blog post. Please be reminded that if you’re going to buy it in Ticket World outlets such as NBS and the likes, there will be an additional 3%. Make sure to bring an extra amount with you. 🙂
By the way, as of this writing, I just checked the Ticket World website and they’re having a traffic surge again because there’s already a banner ad regarding the Eraserheads Reunion Concert with a buy tickets button. I tried clicking it and the page is down. 😀 I guess a lot are already trying to buy the tickets online so that all they have to do is to pick up their tickets at the Ticket World outlets.
