DigiMusic Live was postponed due to Tyson (the vocalist) having an accident but The All-American Rejects did come back to perform after Tyson recovered and they were well rewarded for it.
The event was supposed to be held at Central Park Avenue, 1 Utama but the postponement caused the event to be relocated to the car park of the Bukit Jalil stadium instead. Both venues were good locations for this event but I reckon the Bukit Jalil had the upper hand of being just next to the LRT station (which had extended its operating hours to 12:30am that night).
Approximately 10,000 fans packed the venue that night, some coming even as early as 12 in the afternoon to book the front row location. There was a long snaking line from the entrance of the fenced up crowd area at about 6pm. If you were hungry, you could get some food from the stalls outside, or even inside, as there was a Pizza Hut stall inside.
The DiGi Music LIVE Concert that has been postponed due to The All-American Rejects‘ lead singer’s accident will be happening this coming weekend, 31st October 2009 at the Car Park A of the Bukit Jalil Outdoor Stadium (same venue as the other Bukit Jalil gigs).
Of course, The All American Rejects will be the headlining act, but our local boys, Disagree, Pop Shuvit and One Buck Short will be the opening bands on that day. Show will start at 6pm onwards, expected to end around 10pm, just in time to catch the LRT home before it stops operating.
How to attend? Well, this is a free event, but you will need tickets. You can head over to the DiGi Music Unlimited counters at GSC 1 Utama, TGV escalator at Sunway Pyramid, or at the Lifestyle Avenue at Sungei Wang Plaza.
Customers who have collected their free concert tickets for the October 10th event do not need to exchange them for new ones.

Catch Part 1 and Part 2 as well.
More hardcore action for the night as Restraint continued the event. I don’t know whether there was a circle pit going as requested by the vocalist, but I was sure of constant moshing during Restraint’s set. The stage lighting was fully turned on and I could snap brighter and more vivid pictures to fully reflect the mood of the event.
Do check out Part 1 (http://www.lifeinkl.com/2008/10/24/kami-the-concert-part-1/) of the KAMI The Concert event coverage if you have missed it. This is part 2 and the final part, part 3 will be out real soon.
Helmy, one of the emcees, who lost his voice later in the night.
Kugiran Malaya took stage right after Koffin Kanser. Nas-T (Abu from the KAMI TV series and movie) was on stage, manning the DJ decks. They were also promoting the ‘Super Sunday’ t-shirts, featuring 2 lightning slashes, in pink and blue.
The time has come again. This year, it’s a 4 person fight between Pop Shuvit, Faizal Tahir, Nicholas Teo and Dato’ Siti Nurhaliza. Well, it looks like all the big hitters from the Malaysian music 642-813 industry are up against each other. The event is going to be held at the Arena of Stars in Genting but only invited guests are allowed to enter. No tickets to be purchased.
Personally, I would go for Pop Shuvit considering they are the real underdogs here. They managed to build a name for themselves by working real hard and touring abroad. They have made it to Japan where they even outsold other international acts
