Perf De Castro Reacts After Not Being Included in the Promotion for Rivermaya’s Reunion Concert

Here’s the reaction of Perf De Castro after he was not “included” in the promo for Rivermaya’s reunion

PERF DE CASTRO – An original member of the OPM band Rivermaya turned to social media to share his reaction after not being included in the promotion for the band’s reunion concert.

Recently, Live Nation Philippines announced that the band’s original members, comprised of Bamboo Mañalac, Rico Blanco, Mark Escueta, and Nathan Azarcon, would reunite for a one-night concert on February 17, 2024, at the SMDC Festival Grounds.

The fans were thrilled by the reunion. However, it was noticeable that Perfecto “Perf” de Castro, the band’s guitarist, was “missing” from their promotional photo. Perf, an original member of Rivermaya, responded after not being included in the promotional materials for the upcoming reunion concert. “Wala sa picture, e di wala,” he wrote.

Netizens expressed their disappointment and concern regarding Perf’s exclusion from the promotional materials for the reunion concert. One netizen highlighted the belief that the reunion wouldn’t feel complete without Perfecto performing a guitar solo. Another netizen expressed a similar sentiment, emphasizing the importance of having all original members present on stage for the reunion and suggested that since the reunion concert is set for February, there might still be an opportunity to rectify the situation and ensure the presence of all the original members during the performance.

Perf was part of the band when they produced Rivermaya’s popular songs like ‘Ulan,’ ‘214,’ and ‘Awit ng Kabataan.’ However, the band underwent changes with Perf departing in 1995, Bamboo in 1998, and Rico in 2007, leading to various alterations in its lineup.

Despite these transitions, the band has persisted with Mark and Nathan as the sole remaining original members. Rivermaya is recognized for its chart-topping songs, including “You’ll Be Safe Here,” “Elesi,” “Kisapmata,” and “Liwanag sa Dilim,” among others.

Meanwhile, tickets will be available for purchase starting November 17 at 3 pm via the SM Tickets website and outlets nationwide. The concert will offer various ticket categories – P 2,550 for BRONZE, P 6,550 for SILVER, P 11,750 for GOLD, and P 14,750 for VIP. It’s an all-standing show, and ticket prices include SM ticketing charges, subject to change without prior notice.
