John Mayer should’ve added an extra date in KL, as part of the Asian leg of his tour.

Fans of the musician must’ve died a little inside when they realised that the musician would not be including KL as a stop. Although Singapore, Jakarta or Bangkok are options, it’s obvious that not all would have the time or finances to travel for John Mayer’s concert.

Needless to say, it’s a common thing to have popular musicians exclude KL as part of their Asian tour.

But these 5 musicians have proven that KL is a worthy stop and we can definitely look forward to a live performance from them some time this year.

Kodaline’s songs have featured in 17 television shows and movies, including Grey’s Anatomy and The Vampire Diaries.

Fans of Westlife would recognise Shane Filan within a heartbeat. After all, he was one of the main vocalists for the boy band. Shane has remained active in his music career, even after the band disbanded in 2012. He will be performing alongside Fazura and Namewee at the upcoming Elmina Lakeside Concert organised by Sime Darby.

When: January 19, 5.30pm

Where: Elmina Valley Central Park

2018 was the year of concert experiences in KL, with acts like OneRepublic, Dua Lipa and Zedd playing shows here. There will certainly be more acts added throughout the year but for now, we can look forward to these 5 concerts.
