I got an invite to attend a press conference of Globe's upcoming milestone. All I know about it is maybe Globe is sponsoring another show or production but when I got the event I was in for something more. Word is out that Globe Telecom opening its GEN3 store, their world-class Iconic Store at BGC Amphitheater this June 24. Set to be an iconic store, this is designed by Tim Kobe of Eight, Inc. The same designer of the acclaimed Apple store in New York.

As part of the spectacle and entertainment on its opening day, Globe Telecom will also be showcasing the Philippine version of Green Day's American Idiot Musical Production. You'd wonder where there, well the show is going to be outdoors. Truly an ambitious project, but the musical production will be utilizing the glass bridge that will link two Glove store from the opposite sides of the BGC Central Square. This bridge, flanked by two massive LED screens on each side can be converted into a performance space catering to an audience below.
