Thirty-three years in the music industry, and Gary Valenciano, or simply Gary V, is not slowing down.

The award-winning performer, known for his stage presence and high-octane moves, electrified Central Luzon’s premier events destination, the LausGroup Event Centre yesterday, in an all-out concert entitled “Gary V. at the Event Centre”.

Gary V., dubbed as Mr. Pure Energy, wowed hundreds of audiences as he performed several of his originals and renditions of soulful ballads and groovy hits from the 80s, 90s, and 2000s.

The year-end exclusive concert is a tribute to the Laus Group’s loyal customers.

The 52-year old music superstar noted that he is amazed by the world-class venue and appreciates its edge among other stages he has performed before.

“This is the first time I have seen and step foot on this stage. And to tell you the truth, I am really amazed and impressed by how grand it is. I’ll promote this and tell everyone that this is the best venue here in the region. I thank the Laus Group of Companies and Mr. Levy Laus for allowing me to share my passion and perform songs that does not only move the body but also move the heart and the soul of the audience,” he said.

Supposedly, the concert is set to run for only one and a half hour, but due to insistent public demand, it lasted for more than two hours.

He performed his well-known inspirational hits like “I Will Be Here” and “Warrior is a Child”, as well as his timeless Tagalog songs like “Hataw na”, “Babalik Ka Rin”, and “Wag ka ng Umiyak”.

As an artist fuelled by reinvention, Gary V. constantly interacted with fans and engaged with them by allowing them to take selfies and videos of him while performing and roaming around the concert venue.

The seasoned singer-songwriter also shared the stage alongside his singer-dancer son Gab Valenciano, and roster of new talents like Abby Asistio, Kat Velarde, and Monique Lualhati. Also with him is his band headed by musical director and arranger Mon Faustino.

Laus Group of Companies Chairman and CEO Levy P. Laus said that the jam-packed music and dance celebration is the company’s way to show its gratitude and appreciation to all of its patrons.

“We can say that you have never really seen a real show until you witness Gary V. live in a concert. By inviting him, we show our customers that we truly want to give them nothing but the best. It’s our way of saying thank you for their continuous support and trust with our products and services,” he said.

“Previously, we have invited several top-rated performers like Richard Poon and Vina Morales here at the LausGroup Event Centre. Now we have witnessed Gary V. here on the same stage and we can say that we have leveled up. This concert is a big step forward in proving that the venue is indeed capable of staging big events like concerts and entertainment productions,” he added.

For his part, Jaime Mercado, a long-time client of the Laus Group of Companies, noted that he enjoyed the show very well, together with this family.

“I believe we can all agree that Mr. Gary V’s performance tonight was really exceptional. We really had a great time. The Laus Group of Companies sure knows how to end the year right and we thank them for this,” he said.
