Fans of British-born rising pop star Anne-Marie gathered at KL Live on Monday evening to sing and dance their hearts out to her signature upbeat songs. The concert, titled “Anne Marie Live in Malaysia 2019” was organised by Lazada, in partnership with Warner Music Malaysia.
It was announced last May that Anne-Marie will be performing in KL for the very first time; leaving the fans to be very excited and expecting to have tons of fun while enjoying her performance LIVE.
The crowd has gathered as early as 5pm in the evening in front of the KL Live entrance. As
soon as the gate started to open at 8pm, things started to heat up as the crowd started to
make their way in to secure a good position in order to get a better view of their favourite singer performing.
After few moments, Anne-Marie appeared on stage greeting the fans “Apa khabar?”, wearing a black top beneath a bright yellow shirt layered with an oversized jacket with a
pair of black pants and boots. She then kicked off the stage with a powerful performance of “Ciao Adios” and followed with “Cry” and “Alarm”.
Hardcore fans of Anne-Marie went bananas over her energetic performance and started
to sing and dance along with her. Aside from that, the pop singer also showed off her skills in speaking Malay by showing love and gratitude for them with “Terima kasih” (thank you), before proceeding with her next song “Do It Right”, complete with her passionate dancing that drove the fans crazy that night.
Prior to her performance of “Bad Girlfriend” that night, Anne-Marie stated that most of
her songs in her 2018 debut album, “Speak Your Mind”, centers on the theme of bad
relationships. But for her next energetic performance, she took on the role of the “Bad Girlfriend” herself.
And just when we thought Anne-Marie was running out of energy, she took it up another notch by wowing the crowd with “Heavy”. It was heartwarming to witness the pop star waving at every single crowd in the entire room.
The song “Perfect”, which talks about self love and feeling better about oneself, felt personal. After “Perfect”, she dived straight into “Can I Get Your Number”. We were entertained while watching her cheekily interacting with her band members about getting their numbers. “Let Me Live”, a collaboration project between the singer
with Rudimental and Major Lazer and also Nigerian singer Mr Eazi, was another highlight.
So what did she think of our country? The 28-year-old songstress expressed her love for Malaysian food by saying “Saya Suka Makanan Malaysia” (I Love Malaysian Food), while jokingly considered for another stay in the country because of the food.
When “Trigger” came on, she got the crowd to participate by asking them to show
off a gun sign using their hands as if their pulling a trigger, as the lyrics said. She then
showed yet another powerful performance of the song “Don’t Leave Me Alone”, a
collaboration project with French DJ David Guetta.
After a series of powerful and energetic performance, the tempo started to slow down
during the performance of her song “Then”. Her soulful vocals was evident throughout the venue. The number also featured a special guitar riff in the middle of the performance.
The mood started to increase again during the performance of hit songs “Rockabye”
and “2002”. During the beginning of “Rockabye”, fans sang their hearts out to
the first part of the song up until the chorus with no music on. Anne-Marie even joked that the crowd sounded better than her.
Right before her last song, she thanked fans for having her here and even made a promise to the fans that she will return to Malaysia again. Audiences cheered even louder when the singer changed her top a jersey shirt with our very own “Harimau Malaya” printed on it. She then closed the show with one last energetic performance of “FRIENDS”.
