Over the years, local band Aegis has impressed an ineffaceable mark in our hearts as their classic heart-wrenching and relatable hits became the anthem of our lives, or our LSS to them is just incurable.
Although it’s been a long time since they released these unforgettable records, those have remained popular until now. As Pinoy karaoke sessions would not be complete without belting out one of their hits or two, Aegis songs are top picked pieces in singing contests, and the musical stage play Rak of Aegis that’s inspired by their music is currently on its sixth run.
And to celebrate their undisputed two decades in the music industry, ABS-CBN Events and Live Artists Production Inc. are mounting the band’s 20-year anniversary concert at the Araneta Coliseum billed “Aegis: 2oble Dekada Ang Soundtrack ng Buhay Mo”, this coming July 13, Friday.
Directed by Frank Lloyd Mamaril, the one-night spectacle will be also graced by special guests, namely Regine Velasquez-Alcasid, Karla Estrada, Anne Curtis, Jett Pangan, Jericho Rosales, TNT Boys, and Vice Ganda.
The iconic seven-piece band, composed of sisters Juliet, Mercy, and Kris Sunot on vocals, Rey Abenoja on guitar, Stella Pabico on keyboard, Rowena Pinpin on bass, and Vilma Goloviogo on drums, promised the attendees that they are going to perform their all-time favorite classics and covers.
Advising you to memorize their popular songs as a way of gearing up for an evening filled with music and memories would be useless because presumably, most of us could sing these without looking at the lyrics,right?
Basang-Basa sa Ulan
Mahal Na Mahal Kita
Sayang Na Sayang
Bakit? (Tanong Ko Sa ‘Yo)
