The two-time Oscar winner will perform a concert at Stadium Merdeka on April 26.

"I haven't performed in Malaysia for quite a while now and I remember my experience for the Unity of Light Concert in 2003 fondly," he said during a press conference at the Double Tree Hilton Hotel on Wednesday.
Rahman said that he tailored his concerts based on the response of the fans.
"Their reaction and the vibe we receive during each concert make it special," he said, adding that he was humbled by the extraordinary fan base he had in Malaysia.
