ANNE CURTIS: CONCERT EMPRESS?
MANILA, JANUARY 12, 2012 (MALAYA) From Box-Office Queen to Concert Empress? Don’t look now, but it seems that Anne Curtis is on her way to bagging a new title.
Tickets to her first major solo concert, "Annebisyosa: No Other Concert," have been selling like hotcakes since they became available less than a month ago. Fans are obviously excited to see their favorite actress-recording artist-TV host-fashion icon conquer the Big Dome on January 28.
They’re in for a spectacular treat. "We are leaving no stone unturned," says concert director Rico Gutierrez. "From the song choices and the choreography of Jeorcelle Dapat to the staging and the costumes, we’re making sure that this will delight Anne’s legions of fans and give them their money’s worth."
Working with the veteran young director on the concert are some of the best in the industry. These include musical director Marvin Querido, who worked closely with Anne in putting together around 20 songs for the show. "There’s a lot of pop music in it that we’re sure everyone will love including most of the songs in Anne’s platinum album," Querido declares. "And we’re also pulling some surprises. In fact, Anne is learning to play an instrument specially for the concert."
Also working closely with Anne are stylists Liz Uy and Pam Quinones. "We’re creating several eye-popping costumes for Anne for the various musical segments in the concert," Liz says. "We have no doubt that the costumes themselves will be talked-about, mainly because Anne is such a fashionista. We’re all very excited for the showcase," Pam added.
Of course, no one is more excited about the concert than the star herself. "I still can’t believe this is happening for real," Anne says. "It’s a dream come true and I’m so excited and anxious and nervous at the same time. This is probably one of the hardest things that I’m ever gonna be doing in my life, but I’m so up for it. I can’t wait to perform in my own concert for all my dear fans. This concert is really my way of thanking them for all their support throughout my 15 years in showbiz. So I, together with my entire concert team, am doing my best to make sure we all have a great time on January 28."
"Annebisyosa: No Other Concert" is produced by Viva Concerts and presented by SMART and Cherry Mobile, with major sponsors Primadona, Century Tuna, GSM Blue, SMDC and Folded & Hung.
