GEORGE TOWN: The 1Malaysia Welfare Club has sold over 55,000 tickets for a charity concert featuring international artistes at the Han Chiang High School (HCHS) field.

Businessman Low Taek Jho, also known as Jho Low, said the club had collected RM3.98mil from ticket sales and donations from corporate and individual donors as of noon yesterday.

He said they were hopeful of achieving their RM5mil target set earlier.

“I hope everyone will enjoy themselves tomorrow. Each artiste is expected to perform three or four songs,” he said at a press conference after a site inspection of the HCHS field yesterday.

Also present was 1Malaysia Pen­ang Welfare Club president Geh Choh Hun.

It was earlier reported that the concert, organised by the club, would see Redfoo of LMFAO, Swizz Beatz, Busta Rhymes and Ludacris in action, along with Hong Kong superstars Leon Lai, Alan Tham, Hacken Lee, George Lam, Gigi Leung and Grasshopper.

Other featured artistes include Ning Baizura, Eric Moo, Suchitra, Taiwanese Angela Chang and Berlin-based Compressorhead Robot Band.

Low said the gates would be ope­ned at 3.30pm tomorrow, adding that the concert would kick off with performances by local artistes at 5pm.

Meanwhile, he rubbished allegations that the organiser would “pass off” details from photocopied MyKad for others to vote in the polls.

“Asking the public to produce their photocopied MyKad in ex­c­hange for tickets was to prevent unscrupulous parties from bulk buying and ‘black marketing’ later.

“Besides, we are bound by the Personal Data and Protection Act 2010 to ensure the secrecy of any personal data collected,” he said.

The concert’s system and sound engineer Anthony Chow said the audience would get to see robots performing on that day, the first of its kind in the world.

He added that the stage was configured in such a way that the audience could get “close” to the artistes.

Low Taek Jho, aka Jho Low, sponsoring those artists and the 1Malaysia Penang International Charity Drive event?? Hmm but he denied it.

What’s the purpose of this 1Malaysia Penang International Charity Drive? Where will be the fund channel to? Or rather will the donation enough to cover the event or who will be paying for the total expenses?

Are you going for the 1Malaysia Penang International Charity Drive? Update me! :)
