YouTube personalities Sam Tsui and Kurt Schneider is set to serenade Malaysian fans in Kuala Lumpur.
The YouTube stars will perform in Kuala Lumpur for the first time on June 21.
Fans of Internet sensations Sam Tsui and Kurt Schneider are used to watching them perform on smartphones, laptops and computers via YouTube.
Come June 21, however, fans will get the chance to watch them perform in person!
As part of their Asia Tour, the boys are expected to entertain 2,000 fans at KL Live in Kuala Lumpur for the first time in a one-night-only event organised by Livescape Asia.
Chinese-American Tsui is known for his renditions of the day’s popular music on YouTube, amassing some 1.3 million subscribers on his channel on the video sharing site.
His cover of Nelly’s Just A Dream with fellow web star Christina Grimmie garnered over 80 million views while his latest video, a mashup between Frozen’s Let It Go and Passenger’s Let Her Go, captured 12 million views.
Meanwhile, Pennsylvania-native Schneider (who lived just a street away from Tsui, actually) is responsible for directing and editing many of Tsui’s videos, including those mind-bending one-man choir videos (remember that Michael Jackson medley one?), besides being a singer and songwriter himself.
His YouTube channel, KurtHugoSchneider, boasts of four million subscribers and 25 million monthly views.
Tickets to The Sam Tsui And Kurt Schneider Asia Tour, priced at RM88 and RM128, are available online via galactix.asia/samandkurt and at four Rock Corner outlets in the Klang Valley (Subang Parade, The Curve, 1Utama Shopping Centre and The Gardens Mall).
