Coco Martin overwhelmed by jampacked mall tour in Naga City


I'm currently here in Naga City for the Peñafrancia Festival 2009 and yesterday afternoon, I had a chance to finally see Coco Martin in person during his solo mall show at the Liberty Commercial Center or LCC Mall.

When I arrived at the venue, I was so surprised to see how large the crowd was.

The small venue was jampacked with fans and super siksikan sila.

One spectator commented that they should have chosen a much larger venue for the venue.

Well, maybe they never imagined that Coco Martin, who plays Ramon in "Tayong Dalawa", is so popular now and a large number of fans will flock to the mall.

I think it was his first ever solo mall show.

Kahit ako, I was shocked with the very warm welcome by the Bicolanos to Coco Martin.

Nakapakaswerte ko sa pwesto ko because tyempo namang pagdating ni Coco Martin escorted by more or less 10 LCC guards and he really walked in front of me.

I was surprised na mas matangkad at mas maputi pa pala ako sa kanya. The scars on his face caused by the shooting mishap on the set of "Tayong Dalawa" are slightly visible, but he's such a gwapo talaga, especially when he smiles and makes some "kindat".

Before the show started, nagkaroon ng konting problema.

Nagtutulakan ang mga tao at super worried ang LCC Management for a possible stampede. They even warned that they will not start the show unless they behave well.

Kawawa 'yung mga maliliit na bata na isinama pa ng kanilang mga magulang just to see Coco Martin.

At last, the show has started. Coco went out from the backstage and super tilian ang fans.

Coco was obviously overwhelmed by the attendance and kept on saying thanks to the fans.

He rendered three songs for the audience, one of which is the song "Tayong Dalawa".

It seems like Coco has been used to doing mall tours and mukhang start pa lang 'to ng mas malalaking mall shows para sa kanya.

Because of that show in Naga City, Coco was unable to attend the 32nd Gawad Urian scheduled later in the evening where he won Best Supporting Actor for the movie "Jay".

Bago ang nasabing Naga City mall show, Coco was in Cebu with Kim Chiu, Gerald Anderson and Jake Cuenca for their "Tayong Dalawa" Grand Fans Day.

Si Gerald naman ay kasama sa Kapamilya Peñafrancia Caravan with Melissa Ricks and Matt Evans tomorrow at the Naga City Plasa Quezon.

Other Kapamilya stars who graced the Peñafrancia fiesta in the previous days were Gabby Concepcion, Jason Abalos, Jed Madela, Mark Bautista, Rachelle Ann Go, Yeng Constantino, Jay-R Siaboc and Empress Schuck.

Scheduled today at SM City Naga are the Gigger Boys members AJ Perez, Dino Imperial and Chris Gutierrez at bukas naman ay sina Kristine Hermosa, Kathleen Hermosa and Justin Cuyugan.

Stay tuned! May chika ako about John Lapus, who had a "controversial" show at another mall in Naga City.
