AlDub Fans To Fill Up World’s Largest Indoor Arena on Oct. 24
Manila, Philippines—AlDub (short for Alden Richards and Maine “Yaya Dub” Mendoza) love team fans, born out of GMA Network’s long-running TV show “Eat Bulaga’s” phenomenal “Juan For All, All for Juan: Kalye Serye” segment, are poised to fill up the 55,000-seat indoor arena, Philippine Arena, this Saturday, October 24, for a grand fans day dubbed “Sa Tamang Panahon.”
The Philippine Arena, designed by Populous, an American global architectural firm specializing in sports arenas and convention centers, is seated on a 99,200 square meters of land at Ciudad de Victoria, a 140-hectare township development in Bocaue and Santa Maria, Bulacan.
The arena resembles more of an ancient Greek amphitheater than that of a standard arena, where the main stage is in the middle. Similar to typical amphitheaters, audience members are also seated on semi-circular multi-decked rows of seats or bleachers. The arena is about 15 stories high.
On last Saturday’s episode of the AlDub “Kalye Serye,” a soap opera-musical parody, which premiered last July, Lola Nidora, Yaya Dub’s conservative grandmother played by Wally Bayola in drag, gave permission to Alden, played by Richards, to finally see in person Yaya Dub, played by Mendoza, with no more strict terms and conditions unlike in previous episodes—thus, the big celebration awaiting AlDub fans at Philippine Arena on Saturday.
According to Lola Nidora, the grand fans day will benefit the AlDub library project, where 100 percent of the ticket sales from the event will be donated to at least three elementary schools.
