This November, local music fans will have the chance to attend GetMusic NU Rock Years and rock the night away as Ely Buendia, Ebe Dancel, Rivermaya, The Itchyworms and Barbie Almalbis perform their smash, iconic hits.
GetMusic NU Rock Years, presented by Smart and organized by MCA Music Inc, will take place on November 25 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
The Sound of a Generation
Remember when you first heard the Eraserheads’ “With A Smile” and cheered-up a buddy of yours? Or how Rivermaya’s “214” or “Torpe” by Hungry Young Poets perfectly encapsulated that feeling of butterflies in your stomach as you braved asking out your high school dream date to prom? We bet you remember how Sugarfree’s bittersweet anthems got you through your first breakup, and how Itchyworms’ brand of wacky-yet-intelligent lyricism got you on your feet later-on.
The home of NU Rock
Call it a generation, an era or a movement… undoubtedly, this was the time when bands were churning-out hit-after-smash-hit, and influencing a new generation of decade-spanning youngsters and music fans.
More notably, this was the period when a seminal radio station – known as NU107FM, or simply, “the home of nu rock” – led the charge and became an institution local music enthusiasts could rally behind.
Far from simply being a nostalgia trip, GetMusic NU Rock Years boasts of an impressive lineup of legends who are not just relevant, but who are still at-it – changing the face and sound of local music. This is the big event everyone’s waiting for… a time to get-together again, relive the years and revisit the “NU Rock” sound.
Tickets, which are now available through Ticketnet Online, are priced at: VIP Seated – P3,200, VIP Standing – P2,500. What’s even more exciting is that fans who buy immediately shall be rewarded with a month-long early bird promo, with top-tier tickets at P2,500 and second-tier tickets at P2,000.
