Leaked Eraserheads Reunion Concert song list with videos
Ironically the all the Eheads concert I have been into were never finished, one in Dredd before and many other provincial stints, either a riot or gang war will happen but this time Ely's over stressed heart....
Below are accounts by one of my fellow countryman who experienced the power of the Eraserheads. She made a wonderful post and you can find more on it on her multiply page and her blog too.
We were all supposed to dance the Huling El Bimbo with a fantastic fireworks display. It was going to be the perfect song to end a perfect concert.
I know because my sister said so. She was one of the band's PAs (guess which one!) and was there during the production meetings. On Sunday morning, as we gathered for our family lunch, she told us what was supposed to go down during the Eheads concert.

The first set went exactly as planned, except of course for Ely's collapse. To refresh your memory, these are the songs we heard:
4. Hey Jay
8. Kama Supra
10. Wag Kang Matakot
12. With A Smile
13. Shake Yer Head
14. Wag Mo Nang Itanong
During the second set, the band was to sing ten more songs, in this order:
2. Poor Man's Grave
4. Trip to Jerusalem
5. Back To Me
6. walang Nagbago
7. Maling Akala
When Magasin was to be played, the screen behind them would have montages of various news and magazine clippings of them. It would flash alternately with shots of the band and audience until the song reached the coda where Ely sings "...ay centerfold ka naaaa...woo hoo-hoo, haaa-haaa" part of the song. Then there would be fire works and a fountain of sparks, going on til the last note of the song. Then the hydraulic stage would be lowered and the band would make a "fake ending".
The lights would then go out.
My sister said the band would wait til the crowd chanted "more". "It would take two beers' worth of chanting "more" she said. Then in the darkness, a very dramatic keyboard solo would be heard, and it would be the opening chords of Para Sa Masa.
The hydraulic stage would rise again and there they would be.
After Para Sa Masa, they'd switch into Overdrive. With the crowed pumped within an inch of insanity they were to hit us with Pare Ko. And then we would slow down and reminisce with Minsan.
Finally, they would perform Huling El Bimbo. Again, after the last refrain, at the coda (la la la laaa...) the grand fireworks display would go off, fountains of light surrounding the stage. The next la-la-la parts would see fireworks from behind the general admissions section, and as the song ended there would be a burst of confetti all over the audience.
Then the hydraulic stage would be lowered for the final exit.
Those were the plans for the Ultraelectromagnetic night. It may not have happened as planned but at least we knew they were going to give us a show we would never forget!
We asked my sister if the band knew about all these plans and she said they did. In fact they were so excited about all the gimmicks and couldn't wait to party with the audience. "Nag-usap pa nga sila kung may mga kailangang saluhin na kanta just in case (di na kaya ni Ely)," she said. "And Ely said, hindi, Kakanta ako!"
I'm putting out an order to the Universe that we all get to watch the second set!
For a very brief time in 2002, after Ely Buendia left the Eraserheads, the band continued on with Kris Gorra as Ely's replacement. After the reunion concert was cut short due to unforeseen and sad circumstances, the remaining members decided to debrief and talk Saguijo. Everyone was in high spirts info came out that Ely was well and good, and maybe as an act of celebration (or simply because nabitin sila sa concert), they decided to jam when there was no one left. The result is one of the most heartfelt and inspiring performances i've ever seen in my life. You'll have to forgive me singing out loud at one point. I couldn't help it.
