Regine Velasquez opens Viva concert series at Skydome

It’s definite: Ogie Alcasid will be one of the groomsmen at the wedding of his ex-wife Michelle van Eimeren to her Australian fiancé Mark Morrow sometime in November later this year. The ex-couple’s daughter Leila and Sarah will surely be the flower girls. Yes, Ogie’s beloved Regine Velasquez is also attending the wedding where she will sing a song (not sure yet what) during the ceremony which is expected to be emotional. Michelle, who has two daughters by Ogie, Leila and Sarah, is a cry baby.

But before that wedding in Australia, what Regine (who is mum on when and where she and Ogie will have their own) is preparing for is the opening of the Viva Concerts & Events series with Most Requested as the kick-off show, a two-night event slated at the Skydome in SM North EDSA for Aug. 1 and 8.

The series marks Regine’s return to the Viva fold. Vic del Rosario, chief executive officer of Viva Communications, Inc., is elated over the fact that Regine is headlining a Viva event.

“Regine is a Viva star,” Boss Vic told Funfare. “She started her recording career with us right after she won Hamon sa Kampeon in the ’80s. It was also at Viva where she made her successful movies. We are very happy that she is getting the series off to a big start.”

It must be recalled that Regine starred in such Viva blockbusters as Kailangan Ko’y Ikaw, Wanted Perfect Mother and Hanggang Ngayon. She hosted the talent search Star For A Night for Viva TV; and also had hits like On The Wings Of Love, I Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing, Ikaw, You Are My Song and many others for Viva Records. These hits and her recent recordings will make up her repertoire for the Skydome shows, drawn up based on the requests she constantly receives from fans during her live performances.

The show will also feature upcoming artist Eva Cariño who was discovered by Regine a few months ago. The two were constant rivals when they were kids trying to make it via amateur contests.

“At that time,” Regine was quoted as saying, “I won over Eva only once.” Which means that the Skydome audience will witness a “rematch” between the two birit queens.

The Skydome at SM North EDSA is the newest happening place for concerts in Metro Manila. Most Requested will be followed by Back2Back featuring True Faith and South Border on July 31 and Aug. 7 along with Basil Valdez, Joey Albert, the ‘70s Superband, Rachelle Ann Go, Jed Madela and others.

(Note: Tickets to Most Requested are available at all SM Ticketnet outlets, priced at P2,625 for gold seats and P1,260 for silver. Call 911-5555 or VCEI at 687-6181 locals 627 and 620 for inquiries.)
