ONE OK ROCK was in Kuala Lumpur for their live concert show in Malaysia just last night! The concert featuring the Japanese rock band was held at KL LIVE, Jalan Sultan Ismail KL where thousands of fans swarmed the venue to catch the band in action. The concert was totally awesome with ONE OK ROCK bringing the place down with their explosive performances. It was so full of energy where their live show was as good as their soundtracks!
The show started like 10 minutes late around 8.40PM to an adoring crowd cheering. The opening act of the concert Bunkface did not perform due to unforeseen circumstances and fans of ONE OK ROCK were more than happy when that announcement came out. Taka, Toru, Ryota & Tomoya take on the stage shortly after the announcement and rocked pretty hard.
Little did they talk in the first half of the concert show where they just focused purely in presenting their music. Toru and Ryota both were busy running, jumping switching places between left and right side of the stage the whole time. At times, they even stepped out onto the speaker in front of the stage to address the fans and together with Taka, they interacted with the fans pretty frequently.
It’s artiste like this which makes the fans happy especially those who paid more to get a spot closer to the stage. I guessed those fans who were at the first few rows had one good night being up close with their favorite band from Japan – ONE OK ROCK. With more than 8 years performing in front of a crowd, Taka – the lead vocalist of ONE OK ROCK definitely has the star factor within where he commanded the show from the start till the end. He was really good in presenting himself individually and with the vocals he had, the crowd was totally enjoying the show.
One of the best part of the concert happened when the band finally stopped to take a short break plus providing a proper introduction of themselves. With their tight schedule touring around Europe and Asia, I was impressed personally on the amount of Malay words they actually learned and memorized where they pronounced all the words at an accuracy rate of 80%. Apa khabar semua, Malaysia Terbaik, Saya Cinta Malaysia, Malaysia Boleh, Terima Kasih were some of the many words the band mentioned. Yes the band, all four members Taka, Toru, Ryota, Tomoya picked up a few Malay words and surprised the fans with their introduction.
Taka : “Nama saya Taka, pertama kali datang Malaysia, Sangat gembira. Hari ini kita semua bergembira!”
The concert ended around 10.20PM with the band showing their gratitude to the fans and thanked everyone who came and watch the concert. It was a good show at the end of the day, 2 thumbs up for ONE OK ROCK!
