My brother, Karl, and I were really interested in watching this since we've seen them being interviewed at The Ryzza Mae show and Aquino & Abunda Tonight. Though we seldom agree, Karl and I love each other. Most of the time we get into each other's hair, but I'm glad we both like the group called TRES MARIAS.
Even if we wanted to watch it, we did not dare buy tickets because the concert's date was the 4th of September, my parents 49th Church Wedding Anniversary(their 50th Civil wedding anniversary is on the 19th of November this year). Never in my wildest dreams did I think dad would be interested in watching this type of concert on their special day. Hmm. He did initiate(sorta, kinda) watching RAMA HARI(but insisted on watching Karylle and Christian B's version only)a day before his birthday, but more often than not, even if he ends up liking it, I am the one who invites my folks, like in the case of BITUING WALANG NINGNING-THE MUSICAL and MUSIKAL(last year's anniversary treat).
I was quite amazed that last Thursday morning, which is practically yesterday morning because it's just the wee hours of the morning, as dad was reading THE PHILIPPINE DAILY INQUIRER, he announced: Let's watch TRES MARIAS!
I gladly accompanied him to the nearest Ticket World outlet(NBS, ATC). There were 252 seats left, the best ones were taken, the sides(I'm sure) and the Balcony(I think) were sold out so we got five(5) orchestra center tickets. Dad and mom had senior citizen discounts so we still got the five tickets at a good price altogether. Besides, compared to those foreign acts people are dying to see, even selling their souls perhaps, PhP3,000.00 is not bad for Orchestra Center seats, even if it's still steep for the people who hardly have anything to eat.
