All those who watched Playlist: The Best of OPM Friday last week at the Smart Araneta Coliseum was treated to many firsts that might not happen again in the near future.
Featured performers Joey Generoso, Jinky Vidal, Jay Durias, Juris Fernandez, Meds Marfil and Ice Seguerra were together on stage for a show for the very first time.
They ventured into the area of the new Pinoy pop music by performing songs like “Mundo” by IV of Spades, “Buwan” by JK Labajo, “Maybe The Night” by Ben&Ben and “Kung Di Rin Lang Ikaw” by December Avenue.
Also in the program were medleys of songs popularized by their contemporaries like “Alapaap,” “Ang Huling El Bimbo,” “With A Smile,” “Ligaya,” and “Huwag Mo Nang Itanong” by the Eraserheads and “214,” “Hinahanap-hanap Kita,” “Himala,” “Liwanag Sa Dilim,” and “Ulan” by Rivermaya.
Fast-rising singer Janine Tenoso ventured into this territory of extraordinary music talent by presenting her own share of hits for the first time at the Big Dome, like “241,” “Jealous,” “Bulong,” and “Di Na Muli.”
Last but not least, This Band, the group behind the current big selling tunes “Kung Ayaw Mo Na” and “Hindi Na Nga” made a special appearance at the opening of the show.
