Singer-songwriter and Malaysian darling, Yuna, who has established a firm footing in the local entertainment scene, since her debut in 2009, has finally announced her much anticipated first ever full-on concert at a press conference late yesterday at Tropicana Golf & Country Resort.
Named the “Yuna Homecoming Concert“, the schedule for the shows are as follows:
- Penang Times Square, 11th November 2012 (Sunday)
- Sarawak Cultural Village, Kuching, 16th November 2012 (Friday)
The concert tour is to draw the curtains down after a successful year where Yuna released her first ever international EP, “Decorate”, and then a self-titled album. She also toured all over the United States after in an effort to introduce herself and her infectious brand of music to the world.
And introduce herself, she did. Seriously, who else gets to perform on Conan like this?:
It’s safe to say that Yuna did more than just introducing herself! Right?
At the press conference, Yuna said that the goal of her homecoming concert is to treat her loyal fans with a full-blown musical experience, particularly those who have shared her wonderful journey as an artist and witnessed her growth from the shy, young woman with an incredibly unique sound to a charismatic singer-songwriter who has been able to take on the world’s largest music markets, the United States.
In her exact words, it’s going to be her time to give back a little something special to her fans. So, let’s go?:
Local artistes Kyoto Protocol and Diandra Arjunaidi will be opening for Yuna in Penang whereas Pearl and Randall and Kaban Ka’au are the opening acts for Yuna in Sarawak.
