#53 Has-Been Concerts At Genting Highlands

Malaysia has always been a veritable ground for foreign artistes looking to build and grow a solid fan base. Regardless of whoever the artist(s) is, rest assured that there will be a tweenybopper, emo teen, diva enthusiast or contemporary pop connoisseur here to welcome their idols with open arms and zero judgement.

However, there remains a niche market in Malaysia that foreign acts have identified and continued to exploit over the years. These artistes are those in the twilight of their careers, seeking a little nostalgia trip as well as a fiscal boost to their ailing royalties and to further fund their retirement plans.

The one place in Malaysia that hosts these memory lane moments is Genting Highlands; otherwise known for being a mountain resort, gambling den of decadence and the only place in Malaysia whose weather doesn't reduce you to a hot, sweaty mess.

Part of the reason why these concerts are held in Genting Highlands is because it's far enough from anyone you know, which spares you the embarrassment should you be caught indulging in corny, dated music performed by geriatric popstars. However, if you are below the age of 30 and are caught in such a compromising situation, just say that you're there to accompany your parent/uncle/auntie who begged you to drive them up the steep, winding mountain and attend the concert. Don't worry, the countless number of senior citizens there will assist in your charade.

But regardless of your age and mortifying taste in music, it's completely understandable and you shouldn't have to apologize. After all, it really is hard to say you're sorry for habits that are hard to break.

I just want to say that's a very clever conclusion.

I WANT TO GO! The tickets are so expensive. =/

Terra Shield said...

Come to think of it, you're absolutely right. Except for that one time when BoyzIIMen were here.

This is my first time commenting, and I've got to say that your observation on the Malaysian way of life is spot on!

Aidan,

I'm sure a true blue fan like yourself would be hard pressed not to catch the reference. Well done!

Terra,

I hate to burst your bubble but Boyz II Men joined the Has-Been Club awhile ago.

Glad to see you popped your comment cherry. Come back soon.

Editor's note: Is it such a surprise that my reflections on Malaysian culture are accurate?

I am Malaysian, am I not?

What to do?? When there are young and sexy, they have to abide with all the stringent rules of covering from top to toe. So let's welcome them when they are old, haggard and un-sexy...I am not sure whether to get the Rihanna tickets just as yet.......

Obefiend,

Sounds promising. They could even turn it into a VH1 special.

Anonymous 3:24 pm,

I hope the authorities don't stop the music.

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I make money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my web site to get additional info.
