"AS 1" The Repeat Concert - July 16 (Araneta Coliseum)

Fierce Blogs was invited to attend the presscon of AS 1 The Repeat Concert this week.The venue was at Imperial Palace Suite, Tomas Morato, QC. 

The rivalry between Martin Nievera and Gary Valenciano in the entertainment scene has been witnessed for almost 28 years already. From sold out concerts to platinum records, both artists have proven time and time again that they are both worthy of the accolade they are getting. Many may have not noticed, but Martin and Gary are the most influential artists in our country that set the standards on how a male singer should at least be. You may not agree with this statement and can challenge it, but try to observe the musical style and moves of our local contemporary singers nowadays. One way or the other, you will still see "The signature "Martin and Gary moves and styles in their singing. It is still reflective no matter how much they disregard their styles from these 2 icons. 

Friends: Gary and Martin

Fact is, the rivalry between Martin and Gary still does exist! The only difference is... the rivalry has matured along with the artists.

Martin - "The Concert King" (Official Website)
Gary - "Mr. Pure Energy" (Official Website)

Both artists celebrated their 25th year in the industry last year and had the best celebration I could regard as -  Celebrating it together on stage, in front of their millions of followers. Now this is what you call Artistry at it best. There is no best timing I could think of to stage this concert together other than on the 25th year of their career. As individual artists, they have proven their worth and distinct style.They both needed the time to put more mileage to their artistry before they can put up the concert to beat - As 1 Concert.


The global success of "As 1 Concert (performances in the US, Canada, and the Middle East) only deserves to have a repeat to accommodate those who failed to witness this groundbreaking musical.
