    The “Kilabotitos” – Ogie Alcasid and Ian Veneracion – are moving their concert originally slated at the New Frontier Theater in Quezon City on Mar. 20 and 21, because of coronavirus concern.

    Ogie and Ian are known as two of the nicest guys in showbiz – and putting the health of the production people, their audience in consideration is not a surprise.

    Ogie, whose ATeam is the show’s producer, said at the press con last week that tickets to the two-night show are moving quickly.

    Asked what they are doing in light of the COVID-19 scare, Ogie said, “I think the whole world is affected by this thing. I just wanna announce on the show itself, we will be screening people. Just to make sure that everybody’s okay.”

    Ogie and Ian also said they have embraced their “Tito” status.

    “We just hope that we age gracefully that’s all, not to fight age,” said Ian, 45.

    “Kung tito na kayo, tanggapin n’yo na, embrace n’yo na. The sooner you get comfortable, the better,” said Ogie, 52.

    They also mentioned that most of their fans are from the elderly demographic, and they appreciate how they appeal to them. They even planned the repertoire to include “Tito Hits,” including songs of the Beatles.

    Ateam’s “Kilabotitos” will still be pushing through, just at a later date. For details, check out ticketnet.com.ph or call at Ateam (0906-287-8049 and 0917-795-8283).
