Wassup Malaysia!! MIYAVI (Takamasa Ishihara) was amazing, Malaysian fans were definitely lucky to have him performing in Mega Star Arena with Kuala Lumpur being the first stop of MIYAVI Slap The World Tour 2014. MIYAVI the Samurai Guitarist showcased his skills with the guitar as his ultimate weapon and rocked the night beyond my expectations.
From the way he mess around with his guitar, he made it seems like it was super easy playing it, super awesome. It was so cool to watch him performing live and fans who couldn’t make it for the show definitely have no idea what they just missed.
Before the concert, fans were seen lining up at the venue from 10am and there were even fans coming from neighboring countries such as Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore & the Philippines.
MIYAVI Slap The World Tour 2014 Concert LIVE in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia which was held at Mega Star Arena started at around 8.15PM with Bunkface performing as the opening act. A few tracks later, MIYAVI finally made it up on stage with the cheers from the crowd.
He definitely know how to please the fans where he first appeared a banner created, drawn and signed by fans, with
Malaysia’s flag on it as well, so nice of him!
The first track MIYAVI performed was DAY 1 followed by STRONG and CHASE IT. With the addictive beats + tunes of his songs, he further captured everyone’s attention with his slap style guitar techniques and I was personally in awe watching the way he perform up on stage. Not only he’s good at it, he was having fun! The whole concert was fun-filled and full of energetic performances by MIYAVI.
The drummer with the stage name Bobo was amazing as well. MIYAVI was leading the show and Bobo was further enhancing it with the drums. Fans were seen cheering for MIYAVI as well as Bobo. Putting aside Bobo’s funny appearance, they were superb performing together as they both have this great chemistry between them.
Not sure about you but for me, I have this admiration towards Japanese acts where I think they really excel in delivering world class acts when it comes to live performances. The same applies to MIYAVI’s show at Mega Star Arena and I personally enjoyed the whole concert with 2 hours full of awesome music. The first show of MIYAVI Slap The World Tour 2014 held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia was definitely a good one, thumbs up!
