ALDEN RICHARDS is so excited with two events happening on December 8. 

First, his new single “Goin’ Crazy” will be officially launched (but you can pre-order it on iTunes starting December 1). 

Then, it’s also your special date with him for his 10th anniversary concert, “Alden’s Reality”, someting unique as it combines cutting-edge technology with first rate performances to do a concert where fans can interact online with their idol.

“It’s been a really long journey,” says Alden. “Nagulat ako I reached 10 years in the industry without noticing it, kasi I don’t really count my days of stay here as I just love my job so much. 

"My heart feels full whenever I make people happy with the things that I do in the industry—acting man or singing, dancing, hosting. Mahirap gawin itong state-of-the-art concert ko, sobrang nakakapagod, but I welcome the challenge to fully entertain the audience.”

Alden will take concertgoers to a journey from heartfelt songs to adrenaline-filled dance numbers. A surprise treat also awaits his fans. 

Shot on 360-degrees, concertgoers not only have access to front-row view, but they can see it from mall angles, for a total and immersive experience from the very comforts of their own home.

“Ayoko lang masayang yung chance for me to celebrate my 10 years in showbiz because of what’s happening right now because of the  pandemic. 

"Kasi celebrating my 10th year happens only once in a lifetime, so I’m just really happy that I have good people behind me to make sure this concert will truly be unforgettable for all those who’ll watch it.”

You can buy your tickets for the concert by logging on to www.gmanetwork.com/synergy. 

Philippine buyers are also given a special VIP package option at Php 1,200 which includes one (1) general admission ticket plus one (1) exclusive VR device to Alden’s Reality show. 

This special VR device takes the concertgoer to another level of enjoying the show which is set to begin streaming online at 9 pm on December 8 (Philippine time). 

‘Alden’s Reality’ (AR) is directed by Paolo Valenciano, produced by Synergy: A GMA Collaboration. It’s also GMA Network’s treat to loyal Kapuso viewers as the country’s leading broadcast company marks its 70th anniversary. 

Alden also wants to remind Kapuso viewers that they’ll usher in the Christmas season in “All Out Sundays” this weekend with Paskong Pinoy. 

Alden leads the GMA Yuletide Barkada of Julie Anne San Jose, Rayver Cruz, Gabbi Garcia, Christian Bautista, Mark Bautista, Rita Daniela, Ken Chan, Miguel Tanfelix, Migo Adecer, Jeremiah Tiangco, Kim De Leon, Lexi Gonzales, 

plus Shayne Sava and Glaiza De Castro in an early Noche Buena treat, as they perform your all-time favorite OPM Christmas hits!  Alden will also lead an acoustic jamming session with the ladies of AOS; Julie Anne, Gabbi and Glaiza!

At his zoom presscon, Alden is asked if he’s still willing to be paired with former ka-love team Maine Mendoza in a new project. 

“Why not? Both Maine and I are looking forward to that, para mapagbigyan yung Aldub fans namin na humihiling na magtambal kami uli in a movie or a TV series. 

"I just hope they’ll give us a more mature project para maiba naman sa nagawa na namin before.”
