AlDub to Host Biggest Event Ever This Saturday

leave a comment »

A few days ago, Kalyeserye of Eat Bulaga noontime show announced a special show of AlDub at the Philippine Arena. Labeled as “AlDub – Sa Tamang Panahon,” it is no rival to competing “It’s Showtime” which only booked the 16,500-seat Smart Araneta Coliseum for the latter’s anniversary show last month. By yesterday, social media netizens has been swarming with pleas of getting tickets above regular ticket prices, a sign that the AlDub show is about to have a sold out event.

AlDub at the 55,000-seating Philippine Arena event is expected to overtake Katy Perry’s Prismatic World Tour concert which sold more than 30,000 tickets a few months ago. In fact, many are expecting it will also exceed the 43,000-plus attendance of the premier film showing of the biography of Felix Manalo, Iglesia Ni Cristo’s (INC) founder. The Philippine Arena is owned by INC.

AlDub is the love team that stars in variety show Eat Bulaga’s Kalyeserye edition. The AlDub label pertains to two people – Alden Richards and Yaya Dub (real name Maine Mendoza, who is the Dubsmash queen of the Philippines and an actress by her own right). The parody started in the noontime show’s segment “Juan for All, All for Juan,” together with three other male actors portraying grandmothers – Wally Bayola as Lola Nidora, Paolo Ballesteros as Lola Tidora, and Jose Manalo as Lola Tinidora.

The milestone of the AlDub phenomenon of the Kalyeserye soap opera garnered a whooping 25.6 million tweets in one day for the hashtag #AlDubEBforLove, one over the 12.1 million tweets in a day for the hashtag #ALDUBMostAwaitedDate.

Ticket prices for the “AlDub – Sa Tamang Panahon” show are P1,200, P600, P300 and P150. However, we believe it’s already sold out as of yesterday.
