- Vice Ganda wants to make up for his canceled performance during the thanksgiving party of President Duterte
- He was forced to cancel his performance because of heavy rains and power outage
- He revealed he’s planning to hold a free concert in Davao City
MANILA, Philippines – To make up for his canceled performance at the “DU31: One Love, One Nation Thanksgiving Party” of President Rodrigo Duterte last June 4 in Davao City’s Crocodile Park, comedian-TV host Vice Ganda is planning to hold a free concert in Davao City.
According to an article published by ABS-CBN News, the ‘It’s Showtime’ host said in an interview with Gretchen Fulido: “They’re planning for a big concert in Davao. Free siya para doon sa mga gusto sanang mapanuod ako pero hindi natuloy. (It’s going to be free for all those who wanted to watch my performance, which was canceled.)”
Heavy rains and a power outage forced Vice to cancel his performance at President Duterte’s victory party.
He took to social media to express his disappointment.
He wrote on his Twitter account: “Nakakiyak! Di man nakapagperform dhil sumabog ang kuryente ok lang. Sapat na saking nagkita kita tayo, nagkawayan at nagkamayan.”
[This is tearful. I wasn’t able to perform because of a power outage, but it’s okay. It’s enough for me that we saw one another, waved and shook hands.]
He also tweeted a photo of himself waving at the crowd and captioned his post: “I love you Davao! #Du31”.
Although he did not endorse the incoming president during the campaign period, Vice Ganda was happy that Duterte emerged as the winner among the five presidential candidates.
The two of them had a very good interaction when the tough-talking politician appeared on his Sunday late-night talk show “Gandang Gabi Vice” last year.
After President Duterte took his oath as the country’s new president, Vice once again expressed his support.
According to an article published by Philippine Entertainment Portal (PEP), he urged the people to embrace the change brought about by the new administration.
