Elton John live in Genting Malaysia is for sure one concert not to miss. It will be the biggest show for 2011 and I too hope to catch it. Hope to see you there Luis.

If you can get tickets, do not miss this show. Elton doesn't tour much anymore and is one of the Greats. To bad I will miss this by a couple of months. Hope ya'll over there enjoy!

JIPP said...

Glad that he's finally making his way over to Malaysia although there is already a buzz going on opposing to this concert. Music is music. I can't never understand these ppl.

David Jr said...

KevHawley - Yes, totally agree with your comment. This is a very rare chance for Malaysians to catch one of greatest singers in the world performing here.

JIPP - There will always be some opposition which will be against any international act here in Malaysia. When Beyonce was supposed to perform here, the same thing happened.

Hopefully, there will be no discourse from any group. This will be a once in a lifetime event to see Elton John. I have tried for years in the States. But tickets go in minutes, despite the cost. This concert is truly a West meets East. But, maybe that is why some still resist.

I wonder if Elton read your blog before arriving in Malaysia?

I hope this guy don't say something offensive to Malaysian. He did that to Taiwanese (google it).
