‘Tan­der­struck?’ Coun­try’s iconic singers ready to rock mem­ory lane with con­cert in Cebu

The Philip­pines has had three hit­mak­ers who made the ‘70s ex­tra spe­cial with their mu­sic: Rey Valera, Nonoy Zuñiga and Marco Si­son. The three renowned singers are ready to put up a one-of-a-kind con­cert dubbed “#Tan­der­sLane,“to­gether with Giselle Sanchez, on Jan. 18, 2019 at Water­front Cebu City Ho­tel and Casino.

Sanchez, the only Ce­buana in the group, said #Tan­der­sLane is go­ing to be dif­fer­ent from the usual con­certs. The con­cert will be like a mu­si­cal where it will be telling a story. The plot is still yet to be re­vealed, how­ever, Sanchez said she will be “the thread to patch the three ‘tanders.’” The con­cert was sup­posed to be en­ti­tled “Pri­or­ity Lane,” but ac­cord­ing to Valera, there were a lot of com­pli­ca­tions in the story, so they changed it to “Tan­der­sLane” in­stead. “Tanders” is Filipino slang for “old peo­ple.”

De­spite be­ing “tanders,” the three stars show no signs of slow­ing down. The 64-year-old Valera shared that jok­ing about his age does not of­fend him at all. He said that ag­ing 60 years old and above is not em­bar­rass­ing but rather a thing to be proud of since it means that you are more ex­pe­ri­enced in life.

Con­cert-go­ers can ex­pect orig­i­nal songs from the three. Si­son will belt out some of his clas­sic pieces: “My Love Will See You Through,” “Si Aida, Si Lorna, O Si Fe,” “Al­ways” and “Make Be­lieve.” It will be a con­cert that their fans will surely en­joy as they get to sing-along with their fa­vorite clas­sic songs.

As for me, rice cakes rep­re­sent to­geth­er­ness. As a peo­ple we need to stick to­gether. We need to pro­tect one an­other from any­one who will take ad­van­tage of us.
