This time, we are bringing two young acts, whose music has attracted a strong following among Malaysian youths today."
Loan Cheong, General Manager of Universal Music Malaysia, noted: "Many times, outstation fans have to make their way to the Klang Valley to catch live performances of their favourite artistes. Now, with three locations to choose from, I believe the fans would appreciate our decision of bringing their idols closer to them."
