Asia’s Multimedia Star Alden Richards not only made his fans’ hearts flutter but also made history with the first-ever virtual reality concert in the Philippines via the highly successful “Alden’s Reality: The Virtual Reality Concert.”
Held in three timeslots last December 8 and 9, GMA Network’s sold-out show enabled Alden’s supporters from all over the globe to celebrate with him as the Kapuso actor marked his 10th anniversary in the entertainment industry.
And unlike usual online concerts, “Alden’s Reality” gave them a taste of what the future of concert shows would be. It combined cutting-edge technology and performances to produce a full-length concert and immersive interaction with their idol right from the comforts of their homes.
A virtual date like no other, the show begins with Alden waking up in his house and inviting his “date”—the concertgoer—to join him as he navigated Alden’s Reality. He then set the mood up by dancing to catchy songs popularized by some of the world’s most loved boybands. Joining him were his friends Rodjun and Rayver Cruz.
Alden then went on to answer questions just like he was having a one-on-one conversation with his “date,” sharing his innermost thoughts and reminiscing about his ups and downs in the past.
From his heartfelt rendition of “God Gave Me You” to performing his latest single “Goin’ Crazy” and dancing to the beat of BTS’ “Dynamite”—Alden only showed how he has grown as a performer on stage.
“Alden’s Reality” also saw Alden looking back on his career as an actor and thanking all his former leading ladies. In this segment, OPM band December Avenue joined Alden on stage.
Alden’s fans and friends further showed their support to the Kapuso actor as they shared their experience online. The hashtag “AldensReality” became the top trending topic on Twitter Philippines.
Alden’s latest single under GMA Music and FlipMusic Productions, “Goin’ Crazy” also topped iTunes Philippines and is currently included in Apple Music’s “Absolute OPM Playlist.”
