Genuine emotion, heartbreaking lyrics
Originally written for and first performed by Paolo Valenciano in 2014, “Hanggang Kailan Kita Mahihintay” speaks about a love that is ready for change despite everything, but begs to answer the question of ‘how long.’ The song highlights not only Dancel’s powerful vocals but also showcases his talent in putting genuine, relatable emotions into beautiful, heartbreaking lyrics.
The single is produced by Chino David. David is also the musical director of Dancel’s concert happening on February 29, 2020, Saturday.
As part of Dancel’s celebration of his 20th year in the music industry, the OPM singer will be doing his first-ever major solo concert called “Ebe Dancel with The Manila String Machine.” Tickets were made available on October 30, 2019. The announcement of the show was so well-received by supporters nationwide that it caused the show to sell out in only 12 hours.
“We knew from the beginning that Ebe’s concert was going to be very popular, so my team started to prepare our platform weeks before the tickets went live,” shares Darwin Mariano, Founder and CEO of Ticket2Me, the ticketing partner for the concert. “On the day it did, [though], the support from Ebe’s fans overwhelmed our system – from an average of 35,000-40,000 site requests, we received over 60,000 site requests during the first hour of selling alone. By the time the tickets were sold out later that evening, we had received almost 500,000 site requests!“
“While the majority of the buyers were able to purchase tickets smoothly, there were a few who encountered problems because of the tremendous transaction volume we experienced. Working closely with the organizers, we worked to quickly resolve the issues and offer solutions. This was also an important learning experience for us in Ticket2Me. We are more confident now as a team and a ticketing platform because of this.“
“Ebe Dancel with The Manila String Machine” will take place at Metrotent Convention Center.
