Two weeks ago on 31st July 2010, MTV World Stage Live In Malaysia is back!
We got our passes courtesy of Nuffnang yay!
We reached Sunway at about 5-ish-6pm and it’s freaking packed already..The queue was pretty long and we managed to slip in at the front row, cutting our queuing time by approximately of at least 1 hour..
When we were about to show the security our passes, the sky started to give us a heavy downpour, really heavy one..
The organiser was pretty smart to provide the party-goers disposable ponchos..So I kept a few just in case..
So we entered with the poncho on and the party was about to begin with Asia’s VJs taking the control of the stage..
Namely VJ Utt (Thai), VJ Juju (China), and 2 more others whom I can’t really remember coz I don’t have cable TV so yeah, I don’t really watch MTV

*The crowd with their ponchos*
The event kickstarted with our very own local pop-rock outfit, Bunkface..
Although some might be bored (people like me ) of their songs and antics but it’s undeniable that Bunkface has got the talent to get the crowd moving and a good warm-up before international acts kick in..
*Bunkface getting energetic*
Another thing getting the crowd moving is because of the songs..Bunkface‘s songs are kinda “household” to any music lover who supports local music..
The crowd started to sing along as their songs are pretty familiar to any Malaysian due to its wide publicity and catchy tune and lyrics..
After Bunkface, the crowd took some rest before the Korean girls group Wonder Girls came on stage with their sexy outfits..
IMHO, they speak pretty good English as compared to many other Korean artistes..
Honestly, I don’t know any of their songs other than “Nobody”, but I was pretty entertained with other songs as well..
They were in their signature “Nobody” golden outfit and the crowd started to clap hands, lift up one of their legs, and pointing the person in front of them, you get the drift..
After the Wonder Girls, the event was going down the drain for a while, no pun intended..
It took slightly more than an hour for Tokio Hotel to perform due to “technical difficulties” and the non-stop rain..
Continue on for more of Tokio Hotel, Katy Perry, and my lenglui date
I would say most people was kinda pissed but didn’t show any sign of fatigue or trying to leave the beach..That’s the Malaysia Boleh spirit!
Then came on Tokio Hotel and I think they performed at least 7 songs and guessed it’s their way to “compensate” the waiting crowd..
Ready or not, they were really good on the stage and it took only seconds for the crowd to re-energize themselves and started to rock the house down, again!
Their set up and visualizations were pretty stunning and I wasn’t surprised with the amount of time they took to prepare for that one act..
But all is happy when Tokio Hotel did an encore before they make way for Katy Perry..
This time it took about 20-30 minutes before Katy Perry took the stage with more stunning stage props..
As usual, it’s all colorful, bright, and cheerful kinda theme..She has put up a great performance too and for the first time, she sang a single, “Peacock” from her newest album, “Teenage Dream”..
She went, “You wanna see my peacock, cock, cock, cock~~”..So I was like okayyy~~~..
Katy Perry had storylined her songs in a way to make it sounded more interesting than just sing it away..
All in all, it was a great concert albeit the technical disruption in-between acts and the best thing was all of the artiste has very good showmanship on the stage..
Most important thing about a concert is whether the singer would do it great on stage like what they did on studio album and all 4 of them made it pretty good..
After that I was freaking tired, from my shoulders to my back and then to the waist and all the way down to the knees and feet..
But I must say it’s quite worth it..On the other hand, hopefully the organisers would learned their lessons and make it better should there be another one in the coming years..

I end it with a photo of my date of the night, Daphne
