the global series that brings a live concert feel right into the living of over 550 million households is coming to Malaysia again with the hottest international and local artistes! This is the 3rd year running that Xpax is bringing you MTV World Stage. In the past 2 years, MTV World Stage has given nothing but pure entertainment pleasure with the top acts coming to perform on Malaysian soil.
This year, Xpax is excited to bring Malaysians closer together through the SMS based social network, Kolony, and the MTV World Stage is going to be a great way to kick off this exciting new way of staying connected.
We had it last year about 10,000 fans were wowed by the stellar line-up, which included pop princess, Katy Perry; the wonderful Korean girl group, Wonder Girls; the outrageous glam rock band, Tokio Hotel; and our very own Bunkface. The crowd was alive with excitement and despite the rain during last year’s event, the heat of the event can be felt by the thousands of enthusiastic fans.
I had missed the last year one, so for 2011 is MUST! for me to go *POTP!* I just love the month of July... World Stage - Bangkok - Marathon... Awesome!
MTV World Stage Live in Malaysia 2011™ will kick it up a notch and bring fans an awesome experience they won’t soon forget. Happening at a hot, new location – i-City, Shah Alam – MTV World Stage Live in Malaysia 2011™ is one music event you won’t want to miss!
For this year’s edition, MTV World Stage Live in Malaysia will be bringing international rock outfit, Thirty Seconds to Mars; new international sensation, Neon Trees; Korean pop group, Beast; and Malaysia’s very own groundbreaking act, Pop Shuvit.
Thirty Seconds to Mars
30 Seconds to Mars is a rock band from Los Angeles, formed in 1998. Fronted by singer/actor Jared Leto, the band has grown from strengths to strengths and have built a solid reputation for themselves.
To date, 30 Seconds to Mars have released three studio albums – 30 Seconds to Mars (2002); A Beautiful Lie (2005); This Is War (2009) and two extended plays – AOL Sessions Undercover (2007) and To the Edge of the Earth (2008).
Their latest album, This Is War was critically-acclaimed and established the band’s name as a legitimate rock group with the ability to produce catchy hooks with meaningful lyrics. The band has won multiple awards, mostly coming from MTV itself.
One of my favorite music band, check out their vid!
Neon Trees is an alternative rock band from Provo, Utah. The band received nationwide exposure in late 2008 when they opened several North American tour dates for the rock band The Killers. Not long after, the band was signed by Mercury Records and released their first full length album, Habits, in 2010. Their first single "Animal" climbed to #13 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #1 on the Alternative Rock Chart. The song was also performed by the cast of Glee in season two, giving them even more widespread acclaim.
Beast is a boy band from South Korea and is made up of six members, namely Yoon Doo Joon, Jang Hyun Seung, Yong Jun Hyung, Yang Yo Seob, Lee Gi Kwang and Son Dong Woon. The group was originally known as B2ST, an acronym for Boys 2 Search the Top but was later changed to BEAST (Boys of East Standing Tall). Their journey leading up to their debut was documented by MTV through “MTV B2ST”. BEAST’s first mini-album, Beast Is The B2ST, sold over 20,000 copies in 2009. Since then, they have released four more EP’s and one full length studio album. They have also won various awards and gained popularity all over the world.
One of the famous K-POP band! Phewwitt! I bet my friend Steve will like this very much! Die hard K-POP fans! ahaha!
