Meowwwww...here pussy, pussy, pussycat dolls!

I started going for concerts when I started working. You know the drill. Make your own money then you can spend on whatever you want sorta thing. My first concert was Bon Jovi’s (though I don’t think I paid for this. Think FAMA paid for my ticket. Hehehe). Aaahhh…those were the days. Back then, Bon Jovi was a kewl band! They had really great songs and I had a huge crush on Jon Bon Jovi.

So anyway, I was on lying on my bed last night, wide awake at 1.30 a.m., humming to the song “Fix You” by Coldplay when I decided to rummage through stuff I had kept over the years particularly concert ticket stubs. I think I have been to more than 10 concerts in my lifetime and the best one so far is of course Coldplay. Second on the list would be Sting. He’s such a hottie even though he’s ancient. LOL!



Think Alanis came to Malaysia in 1999. I thoroughtly enjoyed her concert. Whatever you may say about Alanis (she looked like a horse), I think she's a brilliant songwriter and a good singer. Plus she was engaged to Ryan Reynolds. Enuff said!! Her 1st album was so full of angst! If you ever break up with a guy and you wanna get your spirit up then you should listen to "You Oughta Know". And who could forget "Ironic"? That song defines how one look at life. The lyrics, "It's meeting the man of my dreams and then meeting his beautiful wife". Who hasn't been there?? And another favourite song of mine is "Hand Over Feet". From this song I learned what "Best Friend with Benefits" really means.



Aaahhh Jewel...sweet adorable angelic Jewel. She also came to Malaysia for a concert in 1999. She mesmerized us with songs like "You Were Meant For Me" and "Foolish Games". When she strummed her guitar while she singing "Pieces of You" which incidently contained some errmmm rather not so politically-correct words like "faggot", she actually apologised and said that she didnt mean to offend anyone by singing that song. The lady has got class.


Who can ever forget Hoobastank's hit song "The Reason"? Plus the lead vocallist Doug Rob is kinda cute too! Heheh...



Another great band. INCUBUS. Came to Malaysia in 2005. Brandon Boyd is hot without his shirt on. HOT I tell you! Love the "Morning View" album!



Another show which I enjoyed myself immensely. The Riverdance. They were here in 2005. Love the dances, the songs, the costumes! I love Celtic music.


Aaaaahhhh Sting...Mr. Gordon Sumner. Mr. "you-can-sting-me-anytime" Sumner. My favourite song is "Fields of Gold". Love the part when he sang, "I never made promises lightly...And there have been some that I've broken...But I swear in the days still left...We'll walk in the fields of gold". My friend, Mrs. Jacque has a huge crush on Sting and I dont blame her. He is in fact no. 2 (no. 1 was her husb...awww...) on the list of men she would die for.

Sebenarnyer, konsert ni best tengok if pegi ramai2 with friends. I mean no point shouting, "I LOVE YOU CHRIS MARTIN!" or "I LOVE YOU STING!" alone. Cam bodo jer jerit sorang2.

I am sooooooooo looking forward to see Pussycat Dolls in concert at Sunway Lagoon this 26th July and INXS (only because of JD Fortune) on 16th Aug.
Before I die (drama skit), I would like to see these ppl in concert :-
  • U2
  • Madonna
  • Boyz II Men (though I think it's highly unlikely)
  • Il Divo (for obvious reasons...hehehe)
  • Destiny's Child (Also highly unlikely since they've broken up)

    WHO WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE IN CONCERT? Don't say William Hung!!!

princesswaffzonkle said...

it wasnt cool going to a concert with screaming 12 year old girls and their moms as chaperones.

Angel Eyes said...

I went to Hoobastank concert, but missed Mariah Carey and Sting. Uwaaa.. rasa nak nangis jer.. but tak dapat cuti camana kan?

Yup, i would lurrrve to see Madonna in concert... and U2 please!

thewailer said...

all I know, there will be more than 10 concerts/gigs ramping up near future hehehe nice walk down the memory lane, this entry :)

pugly said...

I went ot the Incubus concert, and thought it was okay lah, could be much better, their act in 2002's Lollapalooza was much better, and was dead disappointed that Brandon didn't take his shirt off!

I wish Coldplay had performed here instead of boring ol' Singapore, so that's part of my wish-list. I'd love to see Red Hot Chilli Peppers in action here on Malaysian soil, too - now that they've come out with a new album :-)

Keropok said...

thewailer - I should hope so..But what if they bring artistes like Engelbert Humperdink or Milli Vanilli to Msia? Ack!

Pugly - Ure right!! I was dissapointed too! Tht man has got nice abs. Hehehe..yeah I wished RHCP would come to Msia too!

keropok - U bet i will..now must learn their dance moves. Anybody got their vcds? :p

Leen Ash Burn said...

Oof, I is too late but nak jugak mencelah bedah. Watched erm, Metallica, Def Leppard (in the same year so pekak menjadik2 lepas tu), Alanis, Linkin Park, Force of Nature (3 men strong Boyz to Men were FAR SUPERIOR than our local Ruffedge and VE, kasihan mereka) and uh, Akademi Fantasia kakaka. Contemplating for INXS but Russell Peters going to have a show in Singapura also. Argh tension. OMG how can I forget this, I've also been to NKOTB and KRU concerts *shame*. And was in Hyde Park also when found out that RHCP was playing kat sana, so stood outside the area and listened and watched from the big screen.

Was crushed when Suede and Cranberries cancelled their dates (KL and UK respectively) :(.

Who I'd like to see is RHCP (up close lah), GnR now that someone's mentioned it, U2, especially if dia buat kat luar ala Where the Streets have no name and seriously do not mind if Alanis the muka kuda and Linkin Park plays again.

Cosmic_GurL said...

uglybutadorable - Oklah, it's true Raihan is still the best nasyid group. I pefer them to Rabbani :)

Leen - Alaaa...AF pun nak kira ke? Hehehe...Errmm..sorry ek nak tanya soalan yang tak brp bijak..who is Russell Peters again? :p
