Racing for a Golden Ticket

soldoutEveryone was on the edge of their seats when Aqueous Events Management finally confirmed that they will be producing the first ever solo concert of our Total Performer, Darren Espanto, at The Music Museum on October 4, 2014. Tickets were at 2500.00 for VIP Gold, 2300.00 for VIP Silver, and 2000.00 for Patron. The whole world was excited and all eyes were on Aqueous’ page waiting for announcements.

The Event Organizers were overwhelmed by the influx of phone calls and online reservations last September 11, 2014. False speculations about the concert ticket being sold out circulated, so the management made essential changes to the ticket purchasing process. Aqueous Events Management also made it known to the public that they are the sole authorized ticket vendors.

To observe fairness and to provide equal opportunity to all ticket buyers, Aqueous Events Management, together with the concert producers and the DARRENatics Administrators, decided to stop the ongoing ticket reservations. A one-day ticket selling event was set on September 19, 2014 at the Forum Robinsons at 1:00PM to 6:00PM.

Those who were confirmed of their phone and online reservations were given priority on the selling day. The event management, with their fair judgment also considered those who reserved with special circumstances. Although 15% of the tickets were officially reserved, the voluminous 85% were sold on the said ticket selling date.
ticket salesTyphoon Mario may have unleashed its power in the Metro on the day of the ticketing event, but it did not hinder hundreds of fans from getting what they aimed for. People from all walks of life and generations came to the venue and threw caution to the wind. It was raining cats and dogs but teens, mothers, and fathers were there. The ticket sale was successful despite the threat of the weather and the VIP Gold tickets were sold out

To give way to those who were caught up by Typhoon Mario, Aqueous made arrangements with Robinsons Forum and extended the ticket sale. The second selling date was scheduled on a weekend, September 21, 2014, Sunday. As expected, many supporters, who hailed from the wide stretched area of Luzon, have gotten themselves a ticket with the favorable weather condition at hand. The VIP Silver were sold out and only a few of the Patron tickets were left.

The “Patron Run” was initiated on September 22, 2014 for the remaining Patron tickets to be made available for phone reservations and walk-ins. With a blink of an eye, the tickets were sold out.

It only took two and a half days to sell all 720 tickets. Now that is unbelievable!

Darren may be a newbie in the Philippine Music industry, with barely 2 months exposure since The Voice Kids finale, but this incredibly talented young man has just proven how well loved he is by his fans. There were no some sort of advertisements such as TV, radio, prints, and celebrity endorsements that helped promote the said concert. The sheer fact that the DARRENatics are solid and united with one purpose, was more than enough.

Darren’s first solo concert will surely leave a historical mark in the Philippine concert scene. And every proud DARRENatic would definitely remember the day when they were “Racing for a Golden Ticket!”

    I’m one of the avid fan of Darren. When his concert was announced during Jed’s All Request 2 concert, I was so happy and I will ensure that I’ll watch Darren’s first solo concert. And I was one of the fortunate fan who got the Golden Ticket :-) so exxxcccciiiiitttteeedddd! I love Darren very much. I consider him as my baby brother :-) Anyways,I’m already 36 years old and everyday I browse FB, IG and Tweeter for any update about Darren. He’ll be a BIG star someday :-)

    Congratulations to Darren, I am an OFW from Saudi Arabia. I wish that he will have a concert by December during my vacation and it would be at a bigger venue. Please extend my regards to Darren & all Darrenatics Organizer. Congratulations guys.

  14. fritzie francisco says:

    congrats baby darren! super talented & humble kid w/ a pure heart. God bless u more & more:) we love u baby D!

  15. Rox Rico says:

    Sa dami ng mga singer siya lang talaga nagustuhan at pinakamagaling in my opinion, never pa ako bumili ng album, never pa ako nanuod ng concert, at never din ako naging active ng ganito hanggang dumating si Darren. Grabe ang ganda ng boses, mabait na bata at talagang makikita mo yun kahit isang tingin lang… Kaya naman pinagpapala at tatagal yan sa industriya.. Lagi ka namin susuportahan at mamahalin…we love you ..God bless.

  16. Rochella Mitoni Samson says:

    It was indeed unbelievable. With just 2.5 days, all the tickets were SOLD OUT and in that case there are no any endorsement made through any media. I can say that I am proud to be a DARRENatic. Although i can’t come aince its far from my province, i hope the organizers can provide a DVD copy for us so that we can atleast watch it and i’m sure this will be sold out again. :) in behalf of all the admins of Darrenatics, kuya ian, ate raquel, ate charisse and ate ashley and all others i haven’t mention. Thank u so much for all the efforts u have given for Darren and to all his fans. :)
    Caritas Cristi Urget Nos. :)

  17. Ivy says:

    WOW..in just a span of 2 and a half days..SOLD OUT?No TV and radio ads, no promotional campaigns..just plain social media?with typhoon Mario on selling date?thats how awesome and big Darren’s fandome. ABSCBN must prepare something big for BIG D or else fans will impatiently strike them and flood them with Darrenatics craving for Darrens exposure..haha And ugghhh..Im not able to watch his first concert ,and since the producers and organizers prohibit to take videos, they MUST record it and put it on DVD if not televised..its a MUST!!!! And ohh, its additional income for them too..no matter how expensive it will be..i will surely buy. And now im just waiting for the concert entitled “Big D at the Big Dome”. Goodluck Darren! More blessings to come. Take care of your health. Stay humble kid as you soar high! God Bless you always!

    • Jocelyn Jarin says:

      Darren is indeed destined to be a Huge Star. Hope they come out with a DVD of his solo concert so Darrenatics overseas like me will be able to support and watch him. Rock on Darrenatics!!!!

  29. Vergel Berdan says:

    Wow it only shows that Darren is the biggest star of his generation .with his charisma and charm any individual will be inspired by him. best of luck on your concert Darren

  30. deo says:

    It is a proven fact that a lot of Filipinos love Darren not only because of his talents but also because of his virtues being down to earth and a respectful kid. Although he was born and raised in Calgary, Alberta, Canada he is so humble and never forget to say po and opo which is seldom seen in a Filipino community abroad. Darren shows a quality of a true Filipino ….. and that makes us proud as Filipino-Canadian. Hoping that the next leg of your tour would be Toronto, Canada and rest assured our family here would be supporting Darren. Good luck and God bless. Congratulations!

  31. Mia says:

    Hi All! I am also a big fan of Darren. I am currently working in Dubai and watched Darren since The Voice Kids through TFC. I am so amazed with his talent, positive attitude and undeniably good looks and charm. Ang gwapo at cute nya talaga especially when he smiles. Nakikita ko talaga sa kanya yung pagiging humble and hindi lumalaki ang ulo nya kahit na super sikat na sya among all the big four in TVK.

    I would say I am also a Darrenatics!
