rivermaya rocks korea!

I’ve been very busy for the past few weeks, specially during the first week of October since it was the Chuseok (korean thanksgiving) holiday. Anyway, I’d like to inform you guys about an upcoming concert here in Korea. The following info is from one of the concert promoters…

The concert title is RIVERMAYA ROCKS KOREA!

It will be held on December 17, 6 -8 pm at the Jongha Gymnasium, Ulsan City.

Tickets are at 25,000 KRW first come, first serve. For ticket inquiries and reservations, you may call Hermie Albao of the Ulsan Association of Filipinos and beneficiary of the concert at 019-540-2474.

This is the first time that Rivermaya will be performing in Korea and this promises to be a great event since they just won a triple peat at the MTV Awards, MYX Awards and Awit Awards.

There’ll be picture taking and autograph signing after the concert and their CDs and memorabilia shirts will also be up for sale.

Gates open at 4 pm.

I live in Seoul, which is like a 5-hour bus ride to Ulsan but I’ll try to go to the concert. Rivermaya is one of my favorite Pinoy bands eversince I first heard 214 and I definitely adore Rico Blanco, who’s really the heart and soul of Rivermaya (hehe!).

    This is a benefit concert for our kababayans in Ulsan so let’s all go out and support this project!

    Here’s a list of where you could get tickets

  3. The venue for the Rivermaya concert, the Jongha Gymnasium, is very near the Ulsan City Hall and the Gong-Op-Tap Rotory. Will post the map asap.

    Two lucky ticket holders will also have a chance to win a food cart worth P50,000 which could be a small business for their families in the Philippines. We’re also negotiating for “libreng tawag” a Pinas and legal services at the venue during the event day itself but before the Rivermaya performance.

    So, we hope to see you all there!

  5. Iā€™m Rica Custodio, media associate here in the Philippines and I currently have a project that would help our Filipino migrants in Korea, hopefully in the near future. Given this, Iā€™d like to seek your help in checking what Filipino media (TV network or shows, radio program or station, newspapers, magazines, etc.) are available in Korea.
