Looking forward to live concerts in KL throughout 2022?

Concerts are back and with it Justin Bieber. While the superstar might have broken the Internet when his ‘Justice World Tour’ was resurrected for October 2022, he wouldn’t be the only artist to croon before a live audience in KL this year 2022. Plenty more will be progressively jetting in to entertain Malaysians who have been musically deprived.

‘Lost in Karak’ from 26 till 30 May 2022

The myths of lost souls patrolling the Kuala Lumpur–Karak Expressway in the depth of the night, as well as that of a yellow vehicle piloted by a phantom driver, are purportedly among the country’s most infamous paranormal activities. This May, an immersive pop-up horror experience jointly presented by Pepsi, Hauntu and The Livescape Group will breathe life into the hair-raising tales of the highway bisecting the Titiwangsa Mountains, through a series of compelling storytelling, lifelike characters and terrifying effects. 

Taking place at The Linc 11am-10pm, ‘Lost in Karak’ isn’t for the faint-hearted. But that’s the reason you will be there – you aren’t terrified, are you? Tickets are priced at RM29 per pax before May 1, or RM39 per pax after the promo ends.

Where: The Linc KL. 360, Jln Tun Razak, Taman U Thant, 50400 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur

Le French Film Festival in KL from 9 till 26 June 2022

Over the course of the festival, 21 films will be aired, from tear-jerking drama, to laughter-inducing comedies, to award winners. Apart from films like ‘Aline’ – a hilarious and touching quasi-biopic on legendary crooner Céline Dion – other activities include gastronomic workshops, exclusive exhibitions and eclectic concerts.

Click here for the schedule. Get your movie tickets starting June 2 via the GSC app, website, and e-kiosks at selected GSC cinemas. 

Nigel Ng’s ‘Haiyaa World Tour’ on 17 June 2022 

Thanks to a hilarious yet brutally scathing put down of a fried rice recipe originally aired on BBC, the YouTube comedian turned Internet sensation has been sought out by Michelin-star chefs for peer approval. The August Man Malaysia cover star will return to his homeland to dish out more laughter – this time before a live audience at the KL Convention Centre. 

Adopting the Uncle Roger persona, Nigel has raked up hundreds of millions of views on YouTube. But why watch YouTube when you can be humoured in person?

Tickets range from RM128 to RM228. The show starts at 8pm.
