Wowowin fans in the UAE ready to watch show's first worldwide tour

Filipinos in the Middle East are clamouring to see Willie Revillame in the flesh – and the opportunity has finally come through the first worldwide tour of the host’s popular show Wowowin, which will take place at the Abu Dhabi National Theatre on February 17.

Pinoy netizens took to social media to express how it is a dream come true to be given a chance to watch Wowowin outside of their TV screens. In a Facebook comment, Jac Babaran said: “Napakasaya talaga ng programa niyo Sir Willie. Sana makapunta kami ng friend ko [sa Wowowin Worldwide Tour], wish ko lang talaga. Ang saya-saya kasi, sobra… Welcome to Abu Dhabi, Wowowin.”

Hardy Abenoja Merquita, another Facebook user, is very much excited to personally see the well-loved host for the first time. “Kuya Idol, wow na wow… simple lang ang gusto ko, ang makita ka nang personal at mapanood nang live ang show mo… Kahit kailan hindi pa kita nakita sa personal… ito na ‘yung pagkakataon,” he said.

Willie may be known for his generosity, but the appreciation that his supporters feel goes beyond the tons of prizes that he gives away to audience members and home viewers alike.

“Wish ko makita ka [Willie Revillame],” Dolly Bulat-ag wrote on why she holds Willie close to her heart, “Personal idol kita. [Nag-iisa] ka sa mundo natin, ang lawak ng pag-iisip at puso mo, maawain [ka] sa kapwa… diyan ako hanga sa’yo. Love you, Will,” she added.

Noemi Castro Reyes also shared how Willie has helped her cope with homesickness. “Idol na idol kita, Willie. Buhat ng dumating ako [rito] sa Dubai, ikaw lang ang aking libangan. Hanggang ngayon, ikaw pa [rin] ang nakakapagpasaya sa akin dito, sana makita na kita ng personal at ma-hug, Willie… ikaw ang nagpapasaya talaga sa’kin dito, kahit hindi ako lumabas ng bahay e, masaya na ako kapag napapanood kita,” she confessed.

With the Wowowin Worldwide Tour happening this week, Filipinos in the Middle East are looking forward to a great show and to receive a signature Wowowin jacket, if they’re lucky.

Together with OSN, a leading pay-TV carrier in the Middle East, the Wowowin Worldwide Tour in Abu Dhabi is presented by GMA Pinoy TV, GMA Network’s flagship international channel which aims to bring Filipinos abroad closer to home through another unforgettable international event.
