The KL stop for the Search Di Awan Biru tour was held at the Mon’t Kiara Equestrian Park on the 1st August 2009. Anti-ISA gathering/protests/march was also held at the same day at Kuala Lumpur (together with roadblocks at all major roads entering the city). The Search tour was sponsored by Celcom. Well, if you have noticed, Celcom has been sponsoring/organising a lot of music related events lately, from Indonesian band concerts, to local music gigs like the UOX Play series of gigs. Keep it up!
Massive jams started from 1pm at all roads and highways entering the city. You had to be stuck along with the rest even if you just wanted to turn out and an exit not entering the city. A lot of people who wanted to go to the Search concert got stuck at the jams at one road or another.
Kudos to those who made it there (parking was another issue which I shall highlight later towards the end of this article). There was already a large crowd at the entrance of the venue at 3pm. The event started at approximately 4pm with Pesawat (there was a slight adjustment to the band scheduling) gracing the stage first.
The final leg of the Konsert Penghargaan Search will be held at the Mon’t Kiara Equestrian Park on the 1st of August 2009. Even the line up of opening bands are superb with Zip Zieller, Pesawat, REVENGE and Republic of Brickfields opening for Search. Ah, more REVENGE sweetness!
The schedule for the event will be:
5.40pm: Zip Zieller
6.30pm: Republic of Brickfields
It looks like each opening band will have more than 30 minutes of show time, and heck, Search will have at least 2 hours for themselves!
The 2009 My Stereo Rocks was also held at Zouk, similar to the 2008 one. The exciting thing about this one is that one of their official partners were RTM and that REVENGE will be performing their last and final set during the event before they go into a rest (well, according to their MySpace, but heck, they will be performing at SEARCH‘s final leg of their tour at Mont Kiara this August 1st).
When we arrived, Nadia’s Picture Show was already performing with the crowd already warmed up and enjoying the tunes. Crowd turnup was really good, with the venue nearly full and with more people trickling in.
Do check out this video clip and take note of the blazing solo at approximately 3:05
I just bought a copy of their EP and will do a brief write up on it shortly. It’s called Legends of Rock ‘n Roll and is priced at RM15. You can get it at the RiceCooker shop at The Annexe, Central Market.
Here are some of the extra pictures of REVENGE which I took during Rock The World 8 which was held at 20th December 2008. Don’t forget to check out their MySpace page at http://www.myspace.com/revengers
