Ang Huling El Bimbo – a musical that features hits of the iconic Filipino rock band Eraserheads – premiered on the theater stage in 2018. It had another run featuring a new cast the following year. A filmed version of the production was then made available for streaming in November 2020.
In September, Eraserheads frontman Ely Buendia tweeted that a band reunion is possible – given that current Vice President Leni Robredo runs for president in the upcoming national elections.
Later on, he stated that the tweet was a “half serious joke” when her presidential bid was announced. Two months later, Buendia proceeded to visit the politician, gifting her a vinyl copy of their debut album ‘Ultraelectromagneticpop!’.
