APO Hiking Society Live in GenSan Concert!

Right on the heels of the smash hit concert of the Air Supply in General Santos City, comes a couple of events meant to end 2009 with a bang!

One of them is from a group which has withstood the test of time and is Bariles‘ personal favorite, having followed their career since he was in highschool.  He has not seen them perform live yet and that is why he is very much excited for their concert billed as “APO Hiking Society Live in GenSan!

A project of McDale Productions, the same team who gave GenSan the riotous comedy concert, POOH-K Laugh-Out-Loud with Pooh and Kaye Brosas, the “APO Hiking Society Live in GenSan” will happen on November 21, 2009 at the General Santos Gym, Barangay Lagao, which incidentally is the biggest gymnasium in Mindanao, with a capacity of 8,000 people!

APO Hiking Society‘s music has been reintroduced to the younger generation about 3-4 years ago with the revival of their songs by the country’s top bands and performers.  Songs which became famous during the 70s and 80s like Ewan, Nakapagtataka, Dobidoo, Yakap sa Dilim, Awit ng Barkada, Paano and many more, were given new treatment and once more, became bigger hits.  The APO’s songs and music are truly timeless!

For the APO Hiking Society Live in GenSan, expect most of these songs to be sung their own way that they were performed for the past four decades but backed up by the latest concert enhancements available today.  These plus their witty and funny takes on current political and national scenes infused into their acts will surely make the APO experience worthwhile for every general.

Ticket prices to the APO Hiking Society Live in GenSan are P250 (Silver); P500 (Gold); and, P1000 (Platinum).

    Wow, sunod2x na jud ang mga major concerts diri sa atoa. We can see them live, especially this APO Hiking Society na I think from all walks of life knows or heard their songs already. And their ticket price is quite affordable and reasonable. I’m pretty sure this will be a sure hit.

    Spanning over 3 decades of singing and producing OPM smash hits, the APO has been immortalized by Filipinos because of the lyrics of their songs and the socio-political causes that they were fighting for since EDSA One. Their songs have really touched countless lives, including mine.

  12. elmerceq says:

    By the way my favorite APO songs are Ewan, Nasaan Na Ba ang Barkada and First Love Never Dies.
