A lot of Filipinos would surely say that the 1990s is one of the most nostalgic decades of their lives, from TV shows and series, fashion trends and, most notably, music that captured hearts and the very essence of being alive in that era.
This is why La Verdad Events Management (LVEM), the international partner of Wish 107.5 in bringing great music and performances across the globe, is giving concert-goers and music lovers of the ‘90s in the UAE, particularly Dubai, the most memorable musical treat before the year ends through “’90s Upload,” which will bring together the most popular ‘90s OPM bands vocalists like Lei Bautista of Prettier Than Pink, Wency Cornejo of Afterimage,Naldy Padilla of Orient Pearl, Glenn Jacinto of Teeth, and Cooky Chua of Color It Red in one eargasmic event.
“From ‘Morissette Is Made’ wherein we targeted the millennial audiences, in this ‘‘90s Upload’, we would like to see our Titos and Titas, plus so-called ‘Batang ‘90s’, to give them a great treat of rock concert,” Mel Lingat, Head of Production and Promotion of LVEM, said in an interview.
“We invited those frontmen sa mga favorite rock bands nila during ‘90s and we promised to give them nostalgia. So I hope everyone will come and see the concert,” he added.
The excitement is on
Overseas Filipino workers in the Middle East for sure are happy and are looking forward to relive their memories of the ‘90s. After all, it is them who very much deserve to be entertained with their favorite bands’ great musical offerings.
