Maroon 5 Live Concert @ Bukit Jalil Putra Indoor Stadium, Kuala Lumpur

Managed to grab a pair of Maroon 5 live concert tickets at at Bukit Jalil Putra Indoor Stadium thanks to Maxis..

Went to the concert with Daphne on 29th April 2011, equipped only with a normal PnS camera, here I present some photos and video of Maroon 5..


*The queue was pretty massive*

I was pretty surprise with the crowd turnout because the queues were pretty long! Glad it didn’t took too long for us to enter the stadium..

There was no opening for Maroon 5 but it’s all fine because it started around 9.30pm, about 30-minutes later from its proposed 9pm as written on the tickets..

The crowd was very supportive and all, ranging from young to old and all kinds of people..

Well I couldn’t really remember much which song they started with but I was amazed with the amount of singles they had..

For I, who have never listened to any of their full track albums, I pretty much know at least 70% of their songs during the concert..

Which at the same time shows that they have quite a number of singles being played on the airwaves..

Moreover, most of the tune and rhythm of their songs are quite identical so it’s quite surprising that they actually have so many singles being played around all this while..

It all sounded familiar, I know the lyrics, but I don’t know the name of the songs..I know it’s pretty weird but that’s what happens when almost every song has almost identical tune..

Nonetheless, their songs are very nice, what’s more for a live concert..I think it’s almost a sold-out concert coz most of the seats in the stadium were pretty much all filled..

Most of the songs were their famous tracks such as “Misery”, “She Will Be Loved”, “Harder To Breathe”, “Won’t Go Home Without You”, and “Wake Up Call”, just to name a few..

Look out for a video I’ve recorded..It’s at the end of this blog post..

Asian Music Festival and Artistes Autograph Session @ MIECC

The Asian Music Festival is just around the corner and have you bought your ticket yet?

I would say this is the most anticipated music festival so far happening in Malaysia where 25 strong artistes will be performing live for a straight 10-hour long event!

The Asian Music Festival (AMF), proudly presented by Tiger and organized by Galaxy, is happening on 30th April 2011 at Mines International Exhibition Convention Centre (MIECC) from 2pm til 12-midnight!

Before the event starts at 2pm, there will be autograph session at 12-noon for artistes Jing Chang, Lollipop F, Derrick Ho, and Kevin Lin..

Those who purchase on site any imported album of any of the mentioned singers are entitled to redeem an official AMF poster and get exclusive autograph signing from the 4 artistes..

That’s not all..At 1pm, Korean artiste Se7en will hold a handshake session at the main entrance of MIECC, and again those who purchase their album will get to participate in a lucky draw to take photo with Se7en on stage!

The tickets are priced at RM128 and RM248 for Rock Zone..

I would say it’s DEFINITELY worth the money because you get to have 10-hour long performance featuring famous artistes including Edison Chen (HK), FAMA (HK), 24 Herbs (HK), Paul Wong of Beyond (HK), Sam Lee (HK), Tiger Huang (Taiwan), Jing Chang (Taiwan), Se7en (Korea), and Bibi (China) from the northern countries..

From our region we have Namcha (Thailand), Olivia Ong (Singapore), A-Do (Singapore), our very own Suki, dayDream, Manhand, Rosevelt, and Jess Lee, just to name a few..

A little bit of photos here where I’d attended the press conference for the local artistes at The Tavern, GAB..

The official launch of Asian Music Festival kickstarted when the big screen is touched and clips and shots of artistes is being announced..

Part of the Malaysian artistes including Manhand, Suki, Jess Lee, and dayDream who will be performing at the Asian Music Festival alongside international acts like FAMA, 24 Herbs, Edison Chen, Se7en, and Olivia Ong, etc..

Let’s cheers for the event!


*Suki, winner of One In A Million*

I bet most people who saw Suki won the singing competition would love to see how she has grown up as a singer in terms of her songs and singing style..

Paramore Live In Kuala Lumpur @ National Stadium Bukit Jalil, Malaysia

On 19th October 2010, I got a pair of tickets for Paramore Live In Kuala Lumpur at National Stadium Bukit Jalil and it’s all thanks to Tune Talk and Nuffnang for the Rock Zone tickets..

Most of all, want to thank Ginny for passing me her pair of tickets and it’s the second time in this year already! She gave me her Stereophonics “This Feeling” Live Gig at KL Live tickets too! :D Now everyone go give her some hits :P

Okay back to the topic..I’ve never really been a fan of Paramore, having only listened to 3 songs on the radio..

But being a rock fan me (or whoever it is), I wouldn’t say no to free tickets! Thanks again Ginny..My treat next time :D


*L>R – Yours truly, Daphne, Derryk, Lisan, Joshua*

Bumped into Lisan and Derryk while staring at the long queue for the numbered seats..


*Long queue*

Lucky for Rock Zone revelers, the entrance is on the other side and we didn’t have to queue at all! Also thanks to Michelle for passing the tickets to me :D

By the way, all photos with my watermark and Youtube videos are all snapped and recorded using Blackberry Torch 9800..

Sorry for the bad quality as I’m still trying to explore its functions and was trying to get the best out of it..


*Crowd at 7.30pm*

We were treated with local acts for the opening, Y2K, their songs are pretty unique I would say, a combo of Slipknot and Paramore style..Yeah, you tell me..

Paramore went on stage at about 8.30pm and they were readied to rock!

Their opening set, “Ignorance” was energy-filled and I started to get into the mood already..

Like I said I wasn’t a true fan of Paramore bu I must say, their opening set has had got me into them and was asking for more from them..I just smirked as a sign to agree to myself..

Hayley Williams the lead vocalist, was very energetic throughout the whole concert..She was running to the left and to the right of the stage without sounding exhausted on the mic!

You want more I know..Just continue to read on with 3 more videos waiting for you :D

Adam Lambert Glam Nation Tour Malaysia 2010 @ Bukit Jalil Putra Indoor Stadium

On 14th October 2010, I joined the gang to the Adam Lambert Glam Nation Tour Malaysia 2010, thanks to Sony Music and Marctensia, not to forget brought to you by DiGi Live..

When I reach Bukit Jalil, the traffic flow was kinda smooth but the crowd in and out of the Putra Indoor Stadium was overwhelming..

A news article reported there were 10,000 people attended the Glam Nation Tour..

Well first we were treated with Jay Sean’s “Down”, sung by Iqwal..


*Iqwal*

His singing was quite good and great on his feet movements..He did a bit of moonwalking ;) Not bad for a new guy..


*Dennis Lau the violinist and Daniel Lee the Idol*

Then, my uni senior Dennis Lau came on stage with his violin and Malaysian Idol Season 2 winner Daniel Lee, a combo for Bon Jovi’s “It’s My Life”..

At about 9pm, the lights in the stadium were off and there was Adam Lambert standing up on the stage all glammed..

Adam Lambert started off with “Voodoo”, “For Your Entertainment”, “Rabbit Hole”, and “Ring of Fire”..

Then he continued with “Fever”, “Sleepwalker”, and an acoustic version of “What Do You Want From Me”..

At this point of time I feel that Glambert is toning down his performance just a slight tad bit but his energetic aura still rocked the stage nevertheless..

A friend told me he saw an interview with Adam Lambert on E! News on Astro, saying he toned down his performance as a way to respect the Malaysian government or something like that..Kudos to that!

More details on the set list, more photos, and of course a video from the concert after the jump! *jumps* :P

By the way, photos credit to Sony Music..

Adam Lambert Glam Nation Tour Malaysia 2010 Is Here!

Adam Lambert, the runner-up in American Idol Season 8, second best to Kris Allen, is coming to Kuala Lumpur for his Adam Lambert Glam Nation Tour Malaysia 2010 concert!

As for personal preference, I enjoy Adam Lambert’s vibrant and energetic performance more than Kris Allen’s steady yet mesmerizing performance..

Glad that I’m going for both, already went for Kris Allen’s showcase and now to Adam Lambert’s..Too bad I had to give Kelly Clarkson’s a miss :(

adam lambert glam nation tour malaysia sony music*Adam Lambert Glam Nation Tour Malaysia 2010*

As much as he’s always being known as, Glambert it is, I’m expecting something flashy and rock-styled from him, like we’ve seen in the American Idols..

The concert is happening on 14th October 2010 at Putra Indoor Stadium Bukit Jalil, brought to you Live by DiGi, and jointly organized by Marctensia and Sony Music..

The ticket prices range from RM103 to RM253 for numbered seats and RM193 (Rock Zone) and RM298 (The Pitt) for free standing..

Well I’ll be there in the Rock Zone as it’s closer to the stage and I want to rock it on with my friends! Very much feel like mosh pits now :P

If you buy from those ticket outlets, probably you can consider buying Adam Lambert’s For Your Entertainment – Tour Edition album too!


*Adam Lambert’s For Your Enterntainment – Tour Edition*

By purchasing the Tour Edition album you will get a 10% off on the concert ticket OR get a 10% off on the album when you purchase the concert ticket, get the drift? :)
