‘Iconic’ concert of the year

By Clay Moreno

If there’s an adjective better than grand then that would be the best word to describe Sharon Cuneta and Regine Velasquez’s two-night Iconic concert. The two music superstars shared the stage together on Friday and Saturday to the delight of thousands of screaming fans who flocked to the Araneta Coliseum in Cubao, Quezon City.

 Sharon Cuneta and Regine Velasquez share the stage together for a full-length concert for the first time.
It’s the first time that Sharon and Regine performed a full-length concert together. 

For Sharon, who is celebrating her 40th year in the business, her concert partner is the best singer on the local music scene. She was all praises to Regine all throughout the concert.

Ang boses mo, abot kay San Pedro. Ako kay Venus lang,” Sharon told Regine, who obviously tried to blend and adjust her voice during their duet. 

The two opened the show with the classic “Bituing Walang Ningning,” and rendered a few of their hits in succession, with gaps to talk to the crowd and to express their mutual admiration for each other.

Some of the songs they performed were “You Are My Song,” “Ikaw,” “Dear Heart,” “Mr. DJ,” “Dadalhin,” and “Kailangan Ko’y Ikaw.” 

The duo closed the show with ‘80s dance hits medley “Breakout,” “Get Into the Groove,” “I Wanna Dance With Somebody,” “Gloria,” “Enough is Enough” and “I’m So Excited.”

With its magnificent stage embellished with hundreds of led lights, Iconic was the best local concert we’ve seen this year. Fans could only be thankful for Sharon and Regine for delivering a superb performance dishing out songs mostly from their own catalog.
