CITY OF SAN FERNANDO -- More than 2,000 music lovers on Friday trooped to the Laus Group Event Centre at the LGC Boulevard, Laus Group Complex, Jose Abad Santos Avenue in the City of San Fernando for a night of classics and revivals with top balladeer Martin Nievera.
"Martin Nievera, Live in Pampanga!" was literally a standing room only concert, with the huge crowd a mix of millennials, the young once and the young at heart.
Nievera, with his quick wit and golden voice, truly captured the hearts of all those he has enchanted with his songs from way back in the 80s and new covers, backed up by his son Robin.
The all-around performer, in his first gig at the LausGroup Event Centre (LGEC), repeatedly expressed awe at the concert venue.
“Oh, this is awesome! This LausGroup Event Centre is really great and I never even knew something like this existed in Pampanga!” he said.
Nievera also thanked DwRW 95.1 FM and Mitsubishi Carworld, for bringing him to Pampanga to perform before a jam-packed crowd.
“Thank you, RW 95.1 FM, the Golden Dove awardee and Mitsubishi Carworld,” he said.
As early as 6:00 pm, Martin Nievera fans trooped to the LausGroup Event Centre, the newest and biggest events venue in Central Luzon.
“It promises to be a good night and indeed, it was. It was all worth it,” said Malen Guiterrez, who motored all the way from Bulacan with his friends.
For his part, Laus Group of Companies Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Levy P. Laus said in a statement: “Seeing and feeling the euphoria of the Centre jam-pack with over 2,000 people and SRO is certainly a big measure of how successful the event was.”
“Bringing joy and pride to our Cabalens, customers and friends added more in that feeling of fulfillment in bringing forth the LGEC to the people of Central Luzon,” he said. (JTD)
