MANILA, Philippines -- President Benigno Aquino III and former Chief Justice Renato Corona were only a stone's throw away from each other on Wednesday night when they watched a concert in Quezon City.

Aquino, who was accompanied by Presidential Security Group members, was seen seated at the lower box section inside the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

The president was watching the Manila concert of 70's musical legends America and Kalapana.

Interior and Local Government Secretary Mar Roxas was seated a row behind Aquino.

Also seen in the same venue were Corona and his wife Cristina. The couple were seated in the third row from the stage.

Aquino, during Corona's term as chief justice leading up to his impeachment from the post, was a staunch critic of the former chief magistrate.

They traded barbs in public until Corona was removed from the Supreme Court after a 4-month impeachment trial.
