Even though our conversation went on for less than 15 minutes, it was clear that these four young men from Germany who call themselves Tokio Hotel are very excited about their performance at the MTV World Stage Live in Malaysia 2010 at Surf Beach @ Sunway Lagoon this coming 31 July.
During our brief conversation, the group that consists of Gustav Schäfer, Tom and Bill Kaulitz and Georg Listing were repeatedly expressing their happiness that their second trip to Malaysia will definitely be different and much more special for their fans.
“It’s going to be a large-scale performance and different from the previous one. Since we are still quite new to the international stage, we are so grateful to MTV World Stage for giving us the chance to perform at this event.”
“What’s more interesting is that MTV World Stage 2010 will be held in Malaysia and that indirectly gives us the opportunity to meet with the fans who appreciate our music,” said the band’s lead singer Bill Kaulitz.
Moving on to their performance on the night of the concert, Bill states that his band will surely put on a show that is prestigious enough for such a monumental event.
Set to deliver their popular hits such as Pain of Love, Human Connect To Human, World Behind My Wall, Noise and Automatic, this band, which was formed in 2005, is expected to come forth with an arrangement and musical composition that is promised to be bigger and fresher, as well as using their own crew and performance production besides a special gimmick on the night of the concert.
“What can we say? The performance that night will be extraordinary and will exceed expectations. Besides a set list that is bigger and more energetic, we will also collaborate with our own crew and stage production for our special performance gimmick.”
“Maybe on that night, we will try to enthrall the audience with a fireworks display apart from songs that will definitely entertain. We can’t reveal anything else – the fans just have to come and see for themselves the difference that we’ll perform,” said Bill, who was touched by the sheer response from fans during their maiden visit here last May.
In August 2009, MTV World Stage which was organised for the first time in Malaysia managed to pull in close to 15,000 fans at Sunway Lagoon to watch The All-American Rejects, Kasabian, Pixie Lott, Hoobastank, Boys Like Girls, Raygun and Estranged.
For this year, apart from Tokio Hotel, MTV World Stage 2010 is expected to be more earth-shattering with the presence of US pop sweetheart Katy Perry, Korean band Wonder Girls and local indie band Bunkface. MTV World Stage Live in Malaysia 2010 is happening this 31 July, starting at 6PM, at Surf Beach @ Sunway Lagoon.
