Live & Loud: Turn on the Pop

Live & Loud was absolutely fabulous. We were there from 4.30pm till about 2am. By the time it finished, our feet were numb and our backs were suffering from the onset of rigor mortis.

The highlights of the concert were Mr. Bombastic himself, Shaggy and Whitney Houston. Shaggy was such an amazing performer, he worked the crowd so good, I’ve never screamed so much in my entire life. Also, I believe he could have single-handedly led the biggest mass bird flipping in Malaysia. Serious shit.

Unfortunately, we were not allowed to take pictures of Whitney. Even the media was prohibited from doing so. It’s quite a disappointment that I couldn’t capture any image of her (I was standing so close to the security it was impossible to sneak even one) but damn…I saw Whitney Houston live whey!

Local acts at Live & Loud.
The local acts comprising among others, Anuar Zain, Noryn Aziz, Jacqueline Victor and a few others. Hit and miss, great talents but the song selection were a bit too slow, we got bored after a while. This picture was taken during the final song and you can see Remy (formerly from Innuendo) has joined them. He’s the guy that made Live & Loud happen.

Last but not least, to rejuvenate myself after standing, jumping, waving and screaming for more than 9 hours…
