Ely Buendia now in stable condition

Ely Buendia is now in stable condition and fans of the legendary Eraserheads frontman can now heave a collective sigh of relief.

"He's ok. Please don't worry," assured Pupil co-manager Day Cabuhat to PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) in a short text message sent today, August 31. Buendia was rushed to the Makati Medical Center last night, August 30, after reportedly experiencing chest pains while in the middle of the Eraserheads' 20-minute break during the band's highly anticipated reunion concert held at the Fort Bonifacio Global City open field in Taguig City.

Before the break, the phenomenal ‘90s band played 15 of some of their most memorable songs straight out, with Buendia—sporting a pair of dark shades almost throughout the show—characteristically delivering only a few remarks to the crowd. The band's first set consisted of some notable singles like "Alapaap," "Ligaya," "With A Smile," "Fruitcake," "Toyang" to some unreleased singles like "Hey, Jay," "Shake Yer Head," and "Kama Supra."

The Eraserheads finished their first set with the poignant "Lightyears" taken from the quartet's concept 1996 Christmas album, Fruitcake. The band was supposed to play 30 songs, covering a bulk of their entire catalogue.
