Back for more: Brian McKnight returns to Malaysia for a concert

The R&B star is set to thrill fans in Kuala Lumpur next month at the PWTC. 

American R&B star Brian McKnight is no stranger to music fans in Malaysia. He makes a long-awaited to these shores with a concert at Putra World Trade Centre in Kuala Lumpur on May 9.

McKnight, 44, was last in Malaysia in April 2000. If you’re a fan of 1990s R&B then McKnight is the man for the slow jams and party starters.

The New York-raised star’s most famous songs include, Anytime, Back At One, Still, and One Last Cry, which will be in the setlist on this tour stop.

As one of the most consistent and versatile adult contemporary R&B artists, McKnight tours regularly throughout the year.

He has sold over 20 million records worldwide. In addition to being a singer, songwriter, and producer, plus a multi-instrumentalist McKnight is perhaps most recognised for his strong falsetto range. Widely regarded as one of the strongest talents in the adult urban contemporary R&B genre, his career can be traced back through 12 studio albums. 

He signed to Motown in 1998 and proved his pedigree with the hit album Back At One in 1999. His recent albums More Than Words, Just Me, Evolution Of A Man and Ten have cast the man in a more creative and mature soul singer light. 

McKnight recently released a career-spanning compilation Greatest Hits, which will be the main focus of this Kuala Lumpur tour stop.

McKnight’s show at Putra World Trade Centre in Kuala Lumpur on May 9 starts at 8.30pm Tickets range from RM150 to RM1,250. More details at
