I recognize the fact that the tickets for the Eraserheads Final Set are quite expensive for some so I decided to compile some of the contests (that I know of) that can make you score some tickets for free. So if there are other contests that I was not able to post here, feel free to comment so that we could share the information to everyone else.
Being one of the major sponsors of this event, they have ways on how to get tickets for free. One can do this by texting EHEADS to 234 so that you can get their Eheads ringtone of the day. By doing this everyday, you can have the chance to win VIP Tickets (worth Php 5,000 each) and have a ‘meet and greet’ session with the Eraserheads. Now isn’t that cool? This is the only contest/promo that will give away VIP tickets. Of course you have to have a whole lotta Smart and Talk n Text Load in your mobile phones. Everyday, Smart will be giving away 5 Gen Ad tickets. This promo is valid only until March 1. For more official information about the concert and also some articles about the Eheads, log on to www.eheadscountdown.com. ** Updated 25/02/09
Aside from Smart, MTV Philippines is also one of the major sponsors. For this contest, you would have to have an MTV account. You can do that by registering at www.mtvphil.com and then when you already have the account, go the promo page (click here). Answer the very simple question “What is the title of the Eraserheads Concert?” . No coaching needed, you already know it! Deadline for this contest is March 4.
SAN MIGUEL SARAP MAGBABAD SUMMER PAINOM KICK OFF PARTY
San Miguel will be raffling off 2500 tickets to the people who will be attending the Kick Off Parties that will happen simultaneously at Baypark View (Roxas Boulevard) and Taal Vista (Tagaytay). The gigs will happen on the night before the Eheads concert itself, March 6.
If you’re an alcoholic, take advantage of it! Just buy shots or bottles of Jagermeister from their participating branches and you can get VIP tickets. Here is the list of the participating outlets:
Antakya Bar & Grill
Off the grill QC
Coco Mangas Laguna
For any inquiries call or text : Ged 0928-9734440 or 0917-5243756
This is one of the easiest contests ever, you just have to answer the question “What is your favorite Eraserheads song and why?” and then send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. They will be getting 5 winners (2 tickets per winner).
This radio station has been playing Eheads songs for the past weeks and for you to be able to get some tickets (I know for sure that this is the bronze tickets worth Php 300.00 each) is to call immediately once you hear an Eraserheads song being played on air. The DJ does not need to introduce it, you just need to be alert and grab the nearest phone. I think the number you have to dial is 6366 1075 (i’ll verify it, promise). They will be giving 4 tickets (bronze tickets) for every winner.
They also have an ongoing contest by calling in to their station and by answering some questions about Smart Buddy Rewards. Most likely the DJs will be giving the queue on when to call so again, be alert for this one. They’ll also be giving away bronze tickets.
I also heard in NU 107 that Coca Cola will be giving away Silver A tickets (worth Php 3000) to the first 100 individuals who will queue on the concert venue (on March 7) itself. All you have to do it wear the Buhay Coke Smile Shirt (available at Bench outlets). Line starts at 5 pm sharp. ** Updated 25/02/09)
**updated 25/02/09: According to an Eheads mailing lister mark_wellgrin (thanks for this one), he saw a promo at an SM Mall. You can avail a bronze ticket (worth Php 300) for only Php 155 when you buy a Smart Sim Card (worth Php 40) and get a load worth Php 115. This promo is available at SM Megamall and SM North Edsa. Most likely, you can buy the sim card through customer service.
Well, if everything else fails, you can approach the people who are connected to these sponsors (or the Eheads themselves). Try your luck with them. If not, you can also solicit money from different friends so that you can come up with enough money to buy the ticket that you want.
