The album is a tribute to Jose Rizal and a video was shown before the event at Cubao X last June 28 explaining the ideas and concept behind the album.

Sandwich performed with Dong Abay including Buddy Zabala on keys. Flying Ipis and Gaijin performed a mean set to warm up the crowd.  
Fans and fellow musicians braved the rain and watched Abay perform as he stood on a plinth or stand during the first half of his set. It served to emphasize the title of his new album.
