POST MORTEM: APO of the Philippines

Maaaannn!!!
We had a great time. Everything seemed to cooperate with what was to transpire. We had a crowd to die for, a line-up that worked, musicians that rocked and the vibes semed to make everything magical.

I write this while sleep-deprived, and tired but with a smile on my face. I still retain images of the Big Dome lighted with cellphones everywhere in the audience like points of happy light sending out warm affectionate signals to us on stage.

We were on for 3 hours and 8 minutes!! We thank our audience for the deep appreciation we felt all the way up the stage. It was just amazing. YOU make us feel like we’ve been doing something good all these years.

To everyone-family, friends, acquaintances who asked me for tickets, my apologies for not sending you any. Ticketnet owned all tickets last night and everything we got from them had to be paid for by us. To those who bought and paid, we hopefully gave you a show that was more than your money’s worth!

Peace love and gratitude to everyone, and God who constantly gives us what we need everytime. Till next show! Hopefully, less than 39 years from now.

You should have a DVD special or live CD. It’s for peeps who wasn’t able to watch the show. Not to mention, extra income for you.

hi!

one of the many APO virgin here.. ang dami pala nating virgin! hahaha… APO groupies? Why not?! I’ll say yes to that!

Sir Jim (a.k.a. Mike Enriquez)I don’t know if you remember, I sent a letter with a title “I don’t know” I think two yrs. ago na in the APO site. It was a thrill for me to read your reply, it really helps. Till now I hold those words close to my heart. Thanks!

And finally, I was able to watch an APO concert! It was such a lot of fun! Nagyayabangan kami ng friends ko, saying ” o alam ko p yung song..” but when you sang some kundiman “patay hinidi ko na alam yan.” I want to ask the old man beside me n nga eh..hahaha!Now I wonder how GREAT the 40th concert will be. Sana my orchestra! hahaha!

I forgot, I don’t have a nice shot of the APO during the concert.. PAHINGI ng pics…anyone? Thanks!

Congrats to APO!

Hi Jim!

I just want to congratulate APO for the recently very successful 40th year anniv kick-off concert at Araneta!
Indeed, my sister and I were among the very many “APO virgins”. We enjoyed the concert and went home still smiling and so excited to share how it went sa mom namin.
Ang ganda ng concert nyo and amazing adrenalin coz I was surprised there was no break or intermission number.:-)
I have blocked my calendar when i first learned about this Araneta Concert early this year.

More power to APO Hiking Society!

P.S. Ang cute talaga ni Buboy (“Gary V”, rockstar), very funny man too.:-D
And one more, the “Dong-ding-ding, Doong-doong, Kling-kling”!
