ALDEN Richards enjoyed the company of Kapuso in Sydney, Australia as the Pambansang Bae kick-started GMA Pinoy TV’s series of international events for 2018. Fans of the Kapuso heartthrob from the United Kingdom, United States, and New Zealand flew to Australia for a chance to personally meet and take photos with their idol.
The show, “Alden Richards Live in Sydney,” was held Jan. 20 at the Evan Theatre in Panthers Penrith with comedian Betong Sumaya adding fun.
In the lead-up to the event, Alden and Betong had the chance to meet fellow Pinoys during their press conference and courtesy visit to the Philippine Consulate General. During their free time, the two Kapuso stars had the opportunity to explore Sydney and see famous landmarks such as the Bondi Beach, Mrs. Macquarie’s Chair, Darling Harbour, and the iconic Sydney Opera House. The pair also attended Sunday service.
Betong, a mainstay in the long-running gag show “Bubble Gang,” opened the night with a medley of OPM songs and funny anecdotes of his experience in Australia.
The successful “Alden Richards Live in Sydney” was organized by Memory Bliss Productions with the exclusive media sponsorship of GMA’s flagship international channel, GMA Pinoy TV. Lyca TV is one of GMA Pinoy TV’s carriers in Australia.
