Ely Buendia is now okay ^_^

My hero Ely Buendia is resting at a local hospital ^_^. He's okay now!

Articles from local news says Ely Buendia is now okay. Thank God!

“He had a slight attack because of stress due to the recent passing of his mother (Lisette Buendia), and their sound check which lasted till 3 a.m. today (Saturday),” said MTV Philippines and Radiohead director for marketing Ronald Esguerra “But we have received word that Ely is now in stable condition.”

My hero Ely Buendia suffered a heart attack on January 7, 2007 and had already undergone surgery.The concert, which was staged at the Fort Bonifacio Global City open field in Taguig, started at around 8:15 p.m. and paused for a break at around 9:30 p.m. The Eraserheads opened their much-awaited reunion concert with “Alapaap” and “Ligaya,” complete with fireworks display that bested even WWE!.After waiting at the open field for an hour since the intermission hoping for further developments, loyal fans of the band calmly left the concert area after being treated to a thrilling first set.I was touched by the fact that the fans did not clamour for the concert's continuance but understood that Ely has to be safe.

MTV Philippines’ Esguerra said that while he is hoping for a second Eraserheads reunion concert, there is still no word on whether another one would be staged.
“We have received no word of a Part Two but we also hope there will be one,” he said.

Here's there setlist btw!

hey jay
kama supra
huwag kang matakot
with a smile
shake yer head
huawag mo ng itanong
light years


poorman's grave
trip to jerusalem
back to me
maselang bahaghari
maling akala
para sa masa
pare ko
huling el bimbo

Even if they did not finish the second set just knowing this and the memories that came along with it is just amazing!

Note: Ely Buendia is all things omnipotent for this blogger.
Thank you to everyone who like me made their own prayers for his safety.
