Last year, MTV World Stage 2010 was held in Sunway Lagoon Surf Beach. This year, MTV WORLD STAGE LIVE IN MALAYSIA 2011 @ i-City, Shah Alam!
MALAYSIAN favourite Pop Shuvit, Korean pop sensation Beast, alternative and rock Billboard chart-toppers Neon Trees and platinum-recording artistes and multiple MTV award-winning 30 Seconds To Mars headlined MTV World Stage Live in Malaysia 2011 last Sunday, entertaining an audience of over 15,000 fans at i-City in Shah Alam!
The parking is RM10 per entry and see the amount of the cars there! Do the maths yourself! If 1000 cars * RM10 = 10k? Making good money there! =)

Thirty Seconds to Mars
30 Seconds to Mars is a rock band from Los Angeles, formed in 1998. Fronted by singer/actor Jared Leto, the band has grown from strengths to strengths and have built a solid reputation for themselves.
To date, 30 Seconds to Mars have released three studio albums – 30 Seconds to Mars (2002); A Beautiful Lie (2005); This Is War (2009) and two extended plays – AOL Sessions Undercover (2007) and To the Edge of the Earth (2008).
Their latest album, This Is War was critically-acclaimed and established the band’s name as a legitimate rock group with the ability to produce catchy hooks with meaningful lyrics. The band has won multiple awards, mostly coming from MTV itself.
Neon Trees is an alternative rock band from Provo, Utah. The band received nationwide exposure in late 2008 when they opened several North American tour dates for the rock band The Killers.
Not long after, the band was signed by Mercury Records and released their first full length album, Habits, in 2010. Their first single “Animal” climbed to #13 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #1 on the Alternative Rock Chart. The song was also performed by the cast of Glee in season two, giving them even more widespread acclaim.
Beast is a boy band from South Korea and is made up of six members, namely Yoon Doo Joon, Jang Hyun Seung, Yong Jun Hyung, Yang Yo Seob, Lee Gi Kwang and Son Dong Woon. The group was originally known as B2ST, an acronym for Boys 2 Search the Top but was later changed to BEAST (Boys of East Standing Tall).
Their journey leading up to their debut was documented by MTV through “MTV B2ST”. BEAST’s first mini-album, Beast Is The B2ST, sold over 20,000 copies in 2009. Since then, they have released four more EP’s and one full length studio album. They have also won various awards and gained popularity all over the world.
Pop Shuvit is Malaysia’s and one of Asia’s premiere Hip Hop Rock act that has won numerous awards in the music scene. They have also worked or performed with acts such as My Chemical Romance, The All American Rejects, The Wu Tang Clan, Zion I, Wes Borland and many more.
Pop Shuvit began making waves in the local music scene in late 2001. Comprising of Moots (vocals), JD (guitars), AJ (bass), Rudy (drums) and UNO (turntables), the band has had 4 successful releases under their belt and has garnered a steady fan base throughout Asia notably in Japan, Thailand and Singapore.

Last Saturday went to MTV World Stage 2010 at Sunway Lagoon Surf Beach for Wonder Girls and Katy Perry. It was an awesome show if minus the rain + the technical problem and delay… Between each of the performances it took about 30 mins and it’s crazy!
Luckily I didn’t bring umbrella coz cannot pass the bouncer. Haha. You will be given 1 cheapskate rain coat but I like the design and if without this rain coat I think I will become wet chicken and fall sick the next day.
The queue to enter MTV World Stage was just too crazy! It queue all the way till Hotel Sun Inns and I was in the queue for more than 30 mins and leg also numb. The queue was just way too long and it could be better if not those slowness of the check point at the entrance.
I was in the Sunway Surf Beach about 8pm and miss the Bunkface performance but I was there for Wonder Girls and Katy Perry only =p
There’s Wonder Girls hardcore fans in Malaysia!

Pop icon Katy Perry is well-known for louder than life performances in her eccentric outfits and of course, infectious pop songs. Katy’s debut album One of The Boys hit the charts and went platinum in the UK, US and Australia, and double platinum in Canada. Over 5 million copies of the album have been sold with many smashing singles including “I Kissed A Girl,” “Hot N Cold,” “Thinking Of You” and “Waking Up In Vegas.”
During the recent MTV Movie Awards 2010, Katy Perry performed her latest single “California Gurls.” Stealing the show, Katy gave California a new theme song and a new sense of cool with her sparkling outfit and heart pumping dance moves. The single “California Gurls” has been No. 1 on Billboard Digital Songs for week of June 12, 2010 and is also now No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100. The song will be featured in her upcoming album Teenage Dream, slated for release on 24 August 2010 (in US and Canada) and 30 August 2010 (for the rest of the world).
Among the awards won by Katy include MTV Europe Music Awards 2008 for Best New Act; and in 2009 the BRIT Awards for International Female Artist, MTV Australian Music Awards for Best New Artist, NRJ Music Awards for International Album Of The Year and MTV VMAJ for Best New Artist In A Video.
Tokio Hotel, the biggest act to come out of Germany in 20 years, has gone a stunning 45x platinum and 65x gold, scored five No. 1 singles and three No. 1 albums. Their rocket to success launched in 2001 when Bill Kaulitz and his twin brother Tom – the band’s hip-hop-tinged guitarist – formed the band along with bassist Georg Listing, and drummer Gustav Schaefer.
In 2005, they released their German debut album Schrei, including their worldwide hit single “Durch den Monsun (Monsoon).” since then they’ve caught on like wild fire and gained the attention of an entire generation. In France, the group’s popularity exploded. They went from playing small club gigs for 500 to performing at the foot of the Eiffel Tower for a crowd of 500,000 screaming fans phonetically belting out the words to Tokio Hotel’s German hits. Soon after they made history by becoming the first German band to score a No. 1 hit on the Israeli radio charts and in 2007, Tokio Hotel received their first MTV Europe Music Award. Over the last few years, the four rock stars won almost anything a group could possibly win in Europe (a total of 36 awards) including two further MTV Europe Music Awards for Best Headliner (2008) and Best Group (2009). Even in the US, Tokio Hotel scored big time! They received an MTV Video Music Award in Los Angeles for Best New Artist (2008) and from South America they took home an incredible four MTV Latin Music Awards in 2008, amongst others in the categories Best International Newcomer and Best Song (Monsoon).
Tokio Hotel’s current album Humanoid – including their hit singles “Automatic” and “World Behind My Wall” – topped the German charts right from day one and entered at No. 2 in the Billboard European Album Charts. To date, Tokio Hotel has sold more than 7 million records worldwide.
Asian pop sensation Wonder Girls are South Korea’s girl group (made up of Sun, Yenny, Yubin, Lim and Sohee) who has become the very first Korean group from Asia to enter Billboard Hot 100 in 30 years. The Wonder Girls were introduced through the channel’s programme called MTV Wonder Girls which was filmed and directed by MTV Korea. Debuted in 2007, the Wonder Girls became very popular with their songs “Tell Me,” “So Hot” and “Nobody.” The infectious hit “Nobody” peaked at No. 76 on the Billboard Hot 100, No. 4 on Billboard Heatseekers Song, and No. 1 on Billboard 2009 Year-End Hot Singles Sales chart, which rose the girls to instant fame. “Nobody” sold over 32,000 albums, was downloaded over 30,000 times on the internet, and has over 13 million views to-date on across popular social media platforms.
With their rising success, Wonder Girls opened the U.S. leg of The Jonas Brothers World Tour last year (along with Honor Society and Jordin Sparks) for over 50 concerts in North America. From June 4 to July 20, 2010, Wonder Girls is having their their own U.S. tour concert called ‘Wonder Girls World Tour’. Their accolades won in 2009 included Artist Of The Year at the Seoul Music Awards, Best Asia Artist Of The Year at MTV Style Gala in China and Group Of The Year at the 6th Annual Korean Music Awards.
Vocalist Sam, bass guitarist Youk and lead guitarist Paan are the young Klang lads who formed Bunkface in 2005. In only a year, they have won two Battle of the Bands organized by ROTTW and University Malaya respectively. Their first song “Silly Lily”was No. 1 on FLY FM’s Campur Chart for an astounding 10 weeks in a row. The new indie rock band stormed on to the local scene when they swept 3 Shout! Awards – Rockstar, Breakout and Ultimate – last year. Bunkface then went on to win Most Popular Group/Duo award at Anugerah Bintang Popular Berita Harian 2009. The band continues to gain accolades in 2010, winning an AVIMA award for Best Rock Vocalist. At the 2010 AIM17 Awards, they picked up Best Rock Song for “Situasi” and the Anugerah Kembara, an award which honors musicians who have taken their music beyond Malaysian shores. This unstoppable group recently released their first full-album Phobia Phoney in March. The local indie band’s most popular songs include “Bunk Anthem,” “Situasi,” “Extravaganza,” “Prom Queen” and “Revolusi.”
