D Total Performer Darren Espanto does not see anything wrong with the fact that he is doing a digital concert with ABS-CBN music hub One Music PH just months after his KIA Theater show.
The show called The Other Side of Darren would showcase his unseen musical prowess by taking on a number of songs that he hasn’t done yet. Concert director Alco Guerrero happily revealed that tickets for the show were sold out just two hours after it was released.
Among the songs planned for the concert are Meat Loaf’s “I’d Do Anything for Love” and some classic Filipino songs.
“Noong nakita ‘yung Ate Yeng [Constantino] sabi ko gusto ko rin ma-try sana,” said Darren about his “more intimate” and “more interactive” show that is happening on Sunday, October 30.
“Siguro more relaxed tsaka ‘yun nga, it’s a more intimate venue,” he added.
Director Alco shared that Darren will also have an acoustic segment. Darren’s lone guest is singer Morissette Amon.
While many fans are happy that their idol is staging a new concert just a few months from his last one, there are those who are questioning why he agreed to doing a digital concert when he can fill up bigger venues.
To this, Darren explained, “Eto kasi we thought of it and we wanted to experience something new and we want to try a new outlet for me and ito parang nagpe-perform narin ako sa maraming tao kasi marami rin nanonood around the world for free din.”
The multi-awarded young performer stressed that he has long wanted to be able to perform on a more “chill” venue.
“Kasi after nung KIA I really want to do just like one of those shows na nasa small junction areas lang katulad nito na may kasama lang akong guitarist tapos kumakanta,” he said. “I really want to do more of those shows. So nung dumating itong digital concert na ito and ‘yung opportunity, so tinuloy na namin.”
Instead of looking at the upcoming show as a “demotion,” Darren hopes that some would see it as a new undertaking for him.
