Pitted against each other for almost a decade now as the Philippines’ foremost belters — with unbelievable lung power unmatched by any of their contemporaries — who can easily fill major venues from the Araneta Coliseum to the concert halls of Atlantic City’s casino resorts and California’s grandiose theaters, Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez and Asia’s Nightingale Lani Misalucha will finally settle their professional rivalry in an ultimate face-off that can be billed as the “concert of the decade.”
Aptly called The Main Event, the duel of the two topnotch divas will be staged at the Newark Symphony Hall in Newark, New Jersey, on Sept. 20, with Christopher de Leon as special guest. This East Coast performance is produced by Calla Lily Entertainment Productions, the same group behind the highly-successful Wowowee show at Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall recently.
Before the show reaches New York-New Jersey shores, The Main Event will have two West Coast performances, on Sept. 6 at Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Los Angeles and on Sept. 13 at Nob Hill Masonic Center in San Francisco. Both California shows are produced by StarMedia Entertainment, and will have Martin as guest performer. Next stop is Arie Crown Theater in Chicago on Sept. 19.
After the New Jersey leg on Sept. 20, the show will head to Toronto, at Canada’s Roy Thomson Hall, on Sept. 21.
All shows will be directed by Lorrie Ilustre.
