ASTRO SUARA KAMI 2011 CONCERT

I was invited to the Suara Kami Concert and jumped upon the chance to catch international acts like Nelly (Hot In Herre, Dilemma and Just A Dream), Rania (popular k-pop group) and local groups like Altimet, DJ Fuzz and gang, old school "goreng" guitar rockers, Yuna, Faizal Tahir and others.




A carnival-like atmosphere around the stadium commenced at 12pm while the actual concert began approximately 8.30pm.

Highlights from the Press Conference
Before the actual concert, there was a Press Conference with some international artistes and local acts organized by Astro at a leading 5 star hotel. I was privileged to be one of the attendees and managed to get some up close and personal pictures and videos of them. And I managed to get a firm handshake from Nelly as well!

I managed to get the autographs from Rania and a sampler single (Dr FeelGood) which was written and produced by Teddy Riley.



At the Suara Kami Concert 2011
Despite the drizzle and close to heavy rain, people still throng in droves to Stadium Merdeka for this massive concert featuring international acts like Rania, Hins Cheung, Naresh Iyer, Chinmayi and headlined with Nelly. Local acts included Hujan, Yuna, Pop Shuvit, Faizal Tahir, Stacy, Altimet, DJ Fuzz and gang, Psycho Unit, old school rocker (Joe of Wings, Kid Search, Hillary Ang, Man Kidal), Azlan and the Typewriter) and local dance crews Ruffneckz and Soul Krazy. What a lineup!

It was televised "live" on TV9 and this is first time a spiderweb camera was used.



Jin of Hitz.fm and Jehan Miskin entertained the crowd before and intermittently during the concert.




The official emcees for the show: Aznil Nawawi, Reneetha Veeraya, Ean and Hui Min.





Soul Krazy dancing off with Ruffneckz.

Moots of Pop Shuvit and his group rocking the crowd wild!







Halfway through the show, a surprise visit from our dear Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and his wife, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor delighted the whole stadium. Our PM was so sporting he whipped out his Iphone and recorded the crowd in attendance!
THANK YOU, Prime Minister and wife for attending!



Yuna entertained with "Gadis Semasa".










Popular Canto pop singer from Hong Kong, Hins Cheung rendering 2 songs, "My Way" and "Deadline".

Stacy having a light moment before launching to a medley to dance hits - "Casanova" and "Jahat".









Rock legends (Man Kidal, Joe Wings, Kid Search and Hillary Ang) with Lan Typewriter giving us a medley of Pawana, Seruan and Sejati).











Rania performing in gold glitter and tantalizing moves. They sang their most popular "Dr Feelgood" followed by "Masquerade" and "Stand Up 4 Love".












The highlight of the evening was Nelly, no doubt. He came on with his posse, belting out "Party People" mixed with "Hot In Herre", followed by "Dilemma" and his recent hit "Just A Dream". The crowd went wild!

The show was good, apparently Ean was shadowed by Aznil, I believe Aznil was dominating the emceeing part. Reneetha was like electroshocking all the time, high tone all the time for no reason. All together, I would rate 5/10 for the crew and show.
