Maroon 5 in Kuala Lumpur

Maroon 5 in Stadium Putra, Kuala Lumpur on April 29th! (Which just ended barely 3 hours ago) Am quite glad I decided to go for the concert, seeing as I can finally cross off an item in my bucket list, as well as spend a night swooning over one of my most favourite bands in the world!

Yes I made this, but I did not bring it down from the car :(

I was in Arena B, the free standing zone behind the VIP seats. Above is the place before it was filled up, below is when (finally) one hour later.

Concert was scheduled to start at 9PM; however I reached the venue and started lining up from 5.30PM onwards! Li May and I ended up lining up until 8PM+ when they decided to open the doors and many late comers cut queue – so unfair! But I didn’t really care as we were really quite front anyway.

We ended up on the second row of the free standing zone – which made the whole concert quite bearable. Can’t imagine those standing really behind, what can they see?

I predicted that they would start with Misery…and they did!

Was quite tired with all the waiting and standing, but am still glad I made the effort to see them. They played some of my favourite songs from the older albums such as The Sun, Wake Up Call and Shiver. (Not to mention the more popular ones like Not Going Home Without You, She Will Be Loved) Couldn’t really believe it when they played Shiver and not many people sang along to it…as though they don’t know it. Pfft, and you call yourself fans?!

Songs from the new album included Stutter, Never Gonna Leave This Bed and Hands All Over.

Much as I like Adam, I found that his pronounciation was a little off – I couldn’t hear much of what he sang or said. Perhaps there was a problem with the mic, or my ears (girls screaming at the top of their lungs right beside your ears won’t help improve your hearing that’s for sure), but I really could not hear his singing most of the time. Unfortunate, as that was the point of the concert. Besides breathing the same air as him that is.

I don’t know what he’s trying to do here, but he’s so cute anyway! So buff! #crazyfangirlmode

And here they are finally saying goodbye after one hour 45 minutes of really good entertainment.

 

Empty stage. Buh bye!

It was an enjoyable concert experience, one that I would only mind going through for a favourite band or artist. But there was a bunch of over enthusiastic girls who were really pushy and spoilt half the concert for me. Some of the people also held lighted lighters which I think was really dangerous as the people were so close together that something could easily catch fire – like a girl’s long hair for example.

Anyway better to forget the bad parts of the concert. At least I’ve survived it, with my hair still intact and not uh burnt!

Here I am with Li May, crazy Maroon 5 fan girls!

I actually painted my nails M-A-R-O-O-N-F-I-V-E (10 fingers!) but they came off at the end of the night before I managed to get a photo of them.

Really would like to see them perform again before they disband, and preferably at a smaller cosier venue.

I predict Maroon 5 overdose for the coming week…

If you needed love, well then ask for love
Could've given love, now I'm taking love
And it's not my fault, cause you both deserve
What's coming now, so don't say a word
