It’s A ‘Fine Time’ for the Eraserheads’ Huling El Bimbo World Tour 2024

A refreshed concert experience awaits fans of the legendary OPM band in the continuation of their epic series of shows

In case you missed it, Ely Buendia, Raymund Marasigan, Buddy Zabala, and Marcus Adoro of the iconic Filipino band Eraserheads are off to take over the world once again! 



After their record-breaking reunion concert on December 22, 2022, the quartet went on to headline highly successful shows in their US-Canada Tour 2023, with stops in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Vancouver, Winnipeg, Edmonton, and Toronto between May and June 2023.


This year, new dates and locations were recently announced for the continuation of the Huling El Bimbo World Tour—and here are seven things Eraserheads fans from all parts of the globe can look forward to in the next couple of months!




1. A show in Asia, the Middle East, and more US cities have been added to the tour. The tour will kick off this coming July, with the following dates and venues:


July 6 Hawaii Convention Center in Honolulu, Hawaii

July 12 The Warfield in San Francisco, California

July 13 Peacock Theater in Los Angeles, California

July 19 Pechanga Resort Casino in Temecula, California

July 21 Great Canadian Casino Resort in Toronto, Canada

November 23 The Arena @ Expo in Singapore, promoted by ABS-CBN Global Asia Pacific; and

December 8 Dubai Exhibition Center in Dubai, UAE, promoted by ABS-CBN Global Middle East




2. An improved setlist.

“We’re working on a new set, a slightly different set from last year,” Raymund says. “We’re adding a lot of deep cuts, and some songs that we haven’t played in the previous tours—some songs we’ve never played, ever, live in our careers,” Raymund says. Ely adds, “The songs are 80% decided by fans, 15% decided by family and friends, 5% decided by the band. If we were to choose 100% of the setlist, baka wala nang pumunta sa gigs dahil we’d be [playing] super deep cuts and mga obscure EHeads songs.”




3. An Eraserheads film.

Combo on the Run is currently in the last stages of post-production in Los Angeles,” director Maria Diane Ventura shares. “We’re thrilled to announce that we are dropping the official trailer at one of the biggest and most exciting conventions in the world in San Diego, California.” The band is equally excited, with Raymund revealing to ABS-CBN News that they are also looking forward to viewing the film in full. “It’s going to be a surprise for all of us,” he says.



4. A new official merch site is now live!

Great news for super fans of Eraserheads—along with the announcement of new legs in the Huling El Bimbo World Tour, the band also has a new website where you can purchase official merchandise that will be available to fans worldwide. Shop official Eraserheads merch here.




5. An Eraserheads official YouTube Channel.

The Huling El Bimbo Concert is a gift that keeps on giving. When you feel like reminiscing your live experience, wherever you watched the show from, this new channel will house exclusive clips from rehearsals, shows, and other activities to give fans an insider’s look into the lives of Ely, Raymund, Buddy, and Marcus. 




6. An absolutely memorable time with your favorite band!

“We’ve always liked to keep it light,” says Buddy of their shows. “We love to perform our old and new songs, and we just ask the fans to keep an open mind and open ears. So when we do perform the songs, the experience, the fun we’re having onstage, we hope it translates to you. We hope you love our music the way we love it.”



7. A homecoming show, perhaps?

Asked what’s in store for the Huling El Bimbo series of shows, Ely jests, “It’s never going to end. We love what we’re doing, we’ll keep doing it.” When MJ Felipe of ABS-CBN News presses the band for plans of bringing the tour back to Manila, Ely answers, “Of course, any time we can play here—home is always [somewhere] we want to [play].”



With a packed schedule from July until December, the quartet is set to continue bringing OPM greatness to Filipinos and fans abroad. To that, Buddy says, “Thank you for the opportunity to have us play in your part of the world. It’s not a small deal, it’s kind of big dahil not a lot of bands get this chance. So when we get invited to play our songs in your city, it’s a great joy so we’ll keep doing it if you want us to keep doing it.”
