Say what you want about Anne Curtis’ singing t talent (or apparent lack of it), but when it comes to production numbers, and how she engages with her audiences, only a handful of local artists can match Ms Curtis performance levels. That is why her Anne Kapal Forbidden concert tour has been setting new records wherever she performs.
Last August our Kapampangans experienced first hand the Anne Curtis concert experience as she brought her Forbidden concert at Casino Filipino Angeles–and as many predicted, it broke all previous attendance records and revenues records of Angeles leading entertainment destination.
“Thanks to Anne Curtis ‘ Annekapal concert last August 20, we recorded P13 million in revenues compared to our daily average of just P8.4million, revealed Casino Filipino-Angeles Branch Manager Redentor Rivera. ”
Rivera adds customer attendance also grew by 16.08 percent in August compared to the same month last year from 76,000 to more than 88,000, thanks to the interest of Anne’s upcoming concert.
“August was really a record-breaking month for us,” he added thanks to the publicity generated by the visit of Anne, he added.”
The concert was staged in time for the launch of Casino Filipino-Angeles’ new tagline “We Never Stop.” “True to that slogan, we promise that the entertainment and fun never stops once you enter the doors of our Casino.”
“It was definitely worth the investment, now the other branches of Casino Filipino are following our example and are also planning to have similar events, he added.
Building on that momentum, Rivera announced its star~studded shows beginning October 2015.
Among the country’s top celebrity performers who will be spotted at the Angeles casino branch are “It’s Showtime” host Vice Ganda (November 14), singer-song writer Iose Mari Chan (for the VIP Night on November 20), and the country’s undisputed concert king Martin Nievera (December 29).
According to Nievera, he is proud to have been chosen as one of the Filipino artists who will perform in Casino Filipino. “After years of performing in some of the major casino resorts all over Las Vegas and the world, it’s about time I perform here at home,” he excitedly said.
Since it will be his first time to hold a show in Casino Filipino, Nievera vows to “squeeze in as many of my 33 years of music as I can in one show. It’s an honor to be added to Casino Filipino’s already very prestigious line-up of performers,” he added.
Besides Nievera, Vice Ganda and Jose Marie Chan, CF Angeles will also feature the MYMP Band on October 14, actress-comedienne K. Brosas (with a live band) on October 17, Luke Mejares on October 23, and KZ Tandingan on October 28.
In November, among the featured celebrity performers are The Company (November 4), Ivy Violan (November 11), Liezl Garcia (November 13), Vina Morales (November 18), Frenchie Dy (November 25) and Willie Nepomuceno (November 28).
Aldub fans in Pampanga and northern Philippines will have one of the best Christmas gifts from CF Angeles come December 2, as Alden Richards, the “Pambansang Bae” holds a show at the branch together with former Sexbomb dancer Rochelle Pangilinan.
Comedians Le Chazz and AJ Tamiza will also bring the house down on December 16 with their unique brand of comedy while Randy Santiago will serenade casino patrons on December 23. Jose Manalo and Wally Bayola, along with a live band, will also entertain the Angeles casino guests on December 11 while Erik Santos is slated to hold another exciting show in the branch on December 26.
Rivera shared that quality entertainment shows greatly contributed to CF Angeles’ gaming operations revenue. “Entertainment is a very effective marketing tool. Like Las Vegas, they are also focused on entertainment. That’s the trend. We saw how effective it was so we did it here.”
Through celebrity shows, CF Angeles was able to develop new markets, Rivera explained. “After watching the shows, some guests would go to the gaming area to play. And they come back after experiencing the fun and the thrill of winning. Lately, we observed that there are many new faces especially in the Slot Machine area,”
Celebrity shows, said Rivera, not only benefit the casino but also the whole province of Pampanga. “We became a provider of quality entertainment to the locals and guests. Even residents from Nueva Ecija, Bulacan and other nearby provinces in Central and Northern Luzon come to watch our shows here,” Rivera said.
Because of all these great shows, the CF-Angeles GM says they now plan to improve their sound system and renovate their main concert venue “Gagawin naming maganda talaga ang Casino Filipino Angeles. We will never stop creating quality entertainment and we will never stop providing our customers with wonderful experiences,” Rivera concluded.
