Giving us one-off spectaculars by headlining such festivals as Glastonbury and Sonisphere, we finally get to indulge again with their WorldWired Tour, in support of their latest album Hardwired … To Self-Destruct. The lights went down and the crowd roared […]

The Vamps @ Genting Arena, 19th May, 2017

A love of music starts somewhere. Many of us can attest to that; normally a passion for a certain band or style of music develops in our younger years. Huddled around records, around CD players, around itunes and spotify and youtube, our music tastes begin to shape. As we grow and mature so do our […]

Kings of Leon + Wild Nothing @ Genting Arena, 20th February 2017

Weekday shows are always an interesting moment of music madness. What exactly brings people out on a weekday? What draw are people so pulled by that they leave their routine, stay up way too late, all for a few hours of music? Well, we may not have the answers, but whatever the secret is Kings […]

Slipknot @ Genting Arena, 12th February 2016

It might have only been just over a year since their last visit to the second city – and a few months since they headlined last summer’s Download Festival – but a visit from Slipknot is, and always will be, a big deal, so it’s no surprise to see a packed out arena ready for […]

Motley Crue with Alice Cooper @ Genting Arena, 4th November 2015

Due to ticket issues, unfortunately I missed the beginning of Alice Cooper’s set but having seen him a number of times before I can guarantee it was eventful. The arena is incredibly full to see Cooper do what he does best; macabre vaudeville. An Alice Cooper show includes every aspect of childhood nightmares whether it […]
