LONDON - The Eraserheads toured London on a vintage bus with their families and friends before their concert on Friday night.

They dropped by Abbey Road, a place associated with their idols, The Beatles.

The Eraserheads didn't miss the opportunity to have a photo of them crossing the road, similar to an iconic Beatles album cover.

Before this, Ely Buendia, Raimund Marasigan, Marcus Adoro, and Buddy Zabala spent time with their fans, many of whom are overseas Filipino workers.

"When you say Philippine music, hindi pwedeng lumampas ang statement without mentioning the Eraserheads," said a fan.

The Eraserheads, whose popularity peaked in the 90's, disbanded in 2002 but had reunion concerts recently like the ones in Singapore and Dubai last year.

The band assured their fans in London of a great performance.

"We had one very long rehearsal and we prepared a lot of new stuff that we missed playing live," said Buendia.

"What keeps everybody together and what keeps us playing is the music. It's the same music that you all know. It's probably the same music that you will hear tomorrow night," added Zabala.

The concert will be held on Friday night at the Eventim Apollo Theatre, one of London's major entertainment venues that can accommodate up to 5,000 people.
