Rock band The All-American Rejects returns to Kuala Lumpur for Arthur's Day on Sept 27.
THERE are more reasons for music fans to rejoice as the Arthur’s Day celebration returns with three international acts.
Headlining the show, which will be held on Sept 27 at The Welcome Centre in Sepang International Circuit, are American rock band The All-American Rejects, British-Irish boy band The Wanted and singer-songwriter Five For Fighting (yes, there is just one guy).
The All-American Rejects played not one, but two shows in Kuala Lumpur back in August 2009. Lead singer Tyson Ritter and company loved Malaysia so much after performing at the MTV World Stage, that they returned for a full-scale concert in October the same year. The quartet released its fourth studio album Kids In The Street last year.
Pop music sensation The Wanted is also looking forward to its third appearance in Malaysia. Last September, the boys performed a showcase in Sunway Lagoon, Petaling Jaya. Formed in 2009, The Wanted consists of Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuiness, Max George, Nathan Sykes and Tom Parker.
Five For Fighting is the stage name for John Ondrasik. The only solo act to perform at Arthur’s Day this year is famous for the 2001 hit single Superman (It’s Not Easy). Five For Fighting’s current single is What If from his upcoming sixth studio album Bookmarks.
Since 2009, Arthur’s Day is held to pay homage to Irish brewer Arthur Guinness, the founder of the Guinness Company.
Tickets to Arthur’s Day are priced at RM98 (early bird price valid until Aug 31), RM118 (Sept 1 onwards), RM138 (door sale), RM238 (mosh pit) and RM8,000 (cabana lounge).
