Boybands were all the rage back in the day and one of our favourite groups was Blue. Last month, the British quartet announced their Asia leg for the “Heart & Soul World Tour” with the first stop being Malaysia. The upcoming concert in KL is also part of their 20th Anniversary celebration so fans can expect a good time with the boyband.
To get the hype going for the show, the vocal group took time off for a press conference via zoom call. Members Duncan James, Simon Webb, and Antony Costa were present during the call to share their fondest memories of Malaysia as well as what fans can expect from the upcoming concert.
Are you excited that one of the most successful boybands in Britain is making their way to our shores next month? Blue is set to take the stage at Plenary Hall, KL Convention Centre on 10th February (Friday) at 8pm. Speaking to the media during the press conference, the “One Love” hitmakers recalled their first time coming to Malaysia.
“The [fan] reception at the airport was one of the things that stood out for me,” said Simon. He described the experience and reception at the airport as unbelievable and thanked the fans for their overwhelming support over the years. The Brit Award winners also shared their fondest memory of visiting Malaysia from their previous concerts. For Duncan James, it was actually getting tattoos.
“Every single time I come to Malaysia, I’ll get a tattoo. So I have quite a number of tattoos from Kuala Lumpur on my body,” said the singer. When asked what tattoo he’ll be getting during his next visit, the 44-year-old said he doesn’t know yet but showed off the last tattoo he got in Malaysia on his left leg.
Other than live vocals (obvs) Blue also teased us with a sneak peek of what else fans can expect from the concert at Plenary Hall. “You can expect a few different routines. We might bring back some old moves here and there,” Simon revealed.
Organised by Hitmansolutions and HappyMoon, tickets for the concerts are still on sale but better be quick as they might be sold out soon! Watch the full video here:
