8 live-stream shows and 30 talented local entertainers! If you’ve missed watching live performances, #LiveKatRumah is a twice-a-week virtual concert series where Malaysians can enjoy a concert at the comfort of their own homes.
The platform showcases some of Malaysia’s talented performers ranging from R&B, Pop, Soul, Hip Hop, Jazz and Rock singers and bands, to even comedians and magicians. These 8 concerts are taking place over the span of 5 weeks – from 22nd December 2020 till 21st January 2021.
The shows’ headliners include Abubakarxli, The Frankie Sixes, Russell Curtis, Born Heroes Band, Kavin Jay, Dasha Logan, Nadir and more. Fans can also look out for special appearances from our local music icons including Joe Flizzow and the WVC Malaysian Jazz Ensemble.
This initiative was brought together by Grab alongside local household brands like KFC Malaysia, myNEWS and Tropicana to support our local performers and artistes, seeing as how many have experienced significant losses to their livelihoods. As reported by Malaysia’s Cultural Economy Development Agency (CENDANA), 93% of arts and culture practitioners were affected by the pandemic.
“The inspiration behind the #LiveKatRumah came from hearing about the struggle of friends who are in the performing arts industry during the MCO. As a Malaysian homegrown platform, we have been so focused in delivering food and daily essentials to our customers conveniently and safely while helping our merchants thrive. And now, we are excited to partner with our friends at KFC Malaysia, myNEWS and Tropicana to focus our support towards the performing entertainers. Together with our partners, we want to keep their talent alive by delivering quality live music and performances from our local entertainers straight into the homes of Malaysians,” said Cheryl Goh, Vice President of Marketing, Grab.

Update (31st December):
Following the feedback from our local entertainers and Malaysians about the first two #LiveKatRumah shows, Grab – together with the partners; KFC Malaysia, MyNEWS, and Tropicana – are excited to announce that the live virtual concerts will now be open to the public for FREE. This is to enable more Malaysians at home to enjoy the variety of performances they wouldn’t normally have the chance to enjoy and appreciate the amazing talents overflowing in Malaysia.
The remaining shows that will begin on the 6th of January 2021 will now be streamed live as per originally scheduled on the Grab Malaysia Facebook page.
