Thousands of BlackBerry customers and music fans thronged to Stadium Malawati, Shah Alam, on 31st December 2012 for the “BlackBerry Music Mania Concert and Carnival” aka #BBMM.
The eight-hour New Year’s Eve concert extravaganza featured a strong line-up of top local bands and performers which included the likes of Hujan, Bunkface, 6ixth Sense, Joe Flizzow, Altimet, Kyoto Protocol, and Sofazr. Oh! Chentaku, Meet Uncle Hussain, Go Gerila!, SonaOne, Ila Damia, and Zamaera completed the stellar rockin’ line-up.
The ever-popular band from Indonesia, Sheila On 7, also performed a 45-minute set, belting out a number of hit songs much to the delight of fans, some whom turned out as early as 1pm.
“We are very excited to be back here in Malaysia for this concert and to be able to welcome the new year with our fans and BlackBerry. Their support throughout the years has been fantastic and we hope we gave them a performance they deserved”, said Akhdiyat Duta Modjo, frontman for the band. And if you haven’t heard, we also snagged an interview with the band mere hours before their epic gig.
