While the tickets are already being sold, those who have not been to Sepang to catch this concert will have to take note that the location is about one hours drive from Kuala Lumpur city. There are a few trains from KL Sentral that go there but the service ends after midnight so you might need to plan your journey there and back. A taxi from anywhere in the city to the location will also cost about RM80-100 (US$26-$33) one way and maximum of four people. The journey back will be 50% extra because of the midnight charge.
Unless you are going with friends, it should not be a problem. Otherwise it would be wise to book a room at any of the hotels around KLIA or Sepang. The nearest hotel would be Tune Hotels by the LCCT which is about 10-15 minutes drive from the Sepang International Circuit. To those going for this massive concert, have a wonderful time at the Future Music Festival Asia 2012 in Malaysia.
