Davao City Councilor Al-Ryan Alejandre, a fan of the band which had Buendia as its lead vocalist, was disappointed with the turnout of the event.
In a phone interview Monday, the councilor said that he’s from the generation where Buendia’s fame was at a topnotch. Adding that he already purchased a ticket early on. “I already had my tickets, VIP to say the least, in December last year.
That’s how eager I was to secure a seat and him (Ely Buendia) just telling that he lost his voice because he had a gig the other night is unfair sa mga nagbayad,” he said.
As early as November 20, 2017, concert organizer Bace Production posted a video teaser on the March 10, 2018 concert in its Facebook page.http://www.sunstar.com.ph/davao/local-news/2018/03/13/ely-buendias-concert-irked-dabawenyos-593339
