Arthur's Day Concert 2011 @ Speed City KL

Saturday, October 01, 2011

Arthur's Day is a big event that going on every year. This was my first year to join Arthur's Day Concert at Speed City KL, which is just opposite Palace of the Golden Horses Hotel. This year, Taio Cruz was one of the highlight in this Arthur's Day Concert.

Arthur’s Day is celebrated around the world to honour the date Arthur GUINNESS® signed a 9,000 year lease on the St James Gate Brewery in 1759, and whose legacy has brought us the globally celebrated iconic black brew, GUINNESS®.


Arthur’s Day 2011 was an explosive success with more than 20,000 fans in attendance on the 23rd of September 2011.

Since my office just nearby, I was able to reach the place earlier. The queue wasn't too long yet, it was still early.

Media registered. I'm able to entered the venue first and have the opportunity to took some pictures without any crowded.


Took picture with the big Guinness logo.

Pretty models. and there are more.. continue to scroll :p



VIP and media seating area was provided.

Light finger foods and free flow of Guinness was provided for all the media.

Cheers...



The concert was started around 7.30pm with the awesome music played by our famous DJ Skeletor.


A key initiative for the Arthur’s Day celebrations this year was to promote local emerging talent by providing them a platform to showcase their music locally and globally. In line with this, a competition was launched to discover up and coming Malaysian music acts to be part of the Arthur’s Day line-up. 6 talented local bands vied for the opportunity to perform with global and regional artistes in the music industry.

The 2 winners – Dragon Red and Prema Yin, selected based on consumer votes performed to a rocking crowd at the Arthur’s Day concert as they kicked off the celebrations.


Prema Yin who was the first singer who performed on the stage that night.

Did you saw the cute little bear in his pocket? CUTE!!

Although I don't know who are they actually, but I was enjoyed the songs and music.

Our local famous host - Serena C was one of the host for Arthur's Day 2011.

Together with Serena's partners - JJ and Ian from Hitz fm.


This year, as a reward from GUINNESS® Malaysia for a great 252 years, fans and consumers needed to attain these money-can’t-buy exclusive invites to the event. More than 20,000 fans partied the night away at the concert this year.

The handsome brother's - SOLER from Hong Kong. They has performed few English and Chinese songs.

The eldest brother, my friend admire him so much!!

Next was Mizz Nina.

Performance of Mizz Nina was really rocked the house too, together with her dancing with the team.

...and the long awaited singer was the last who performed. Everyone was shout for joy and cheer!! This was  the higher pitch and climax of the night.


The culmination of the 24 hour global celebration here in Kuala Lumpur featured an EPIC live music concert by international music supremo - TAIO CRUZ. Taio’s performance certainly took the crowd to HIGHER grounds with his Dynamite performance. 


“I am delighted to be part of the Arthur’s Day celebrations. Every year since it began in 2009 it’s been an EPIC celebration and this year was no exception. It was awesome to meet and party with my fans here in Malaysia. Malaysia is such an awesome country with awesome people. I had a great time and hope to come back if i get the chance. Thank you GUINNESS® for the opportunity. It was an EPIC experience for me.” said Taio Cruz.

Of cos, you couldn't fully enjoy the concert without awesome friends! If I not mistaken, the dress code/theme for the night was black. So, all of us wore black! Majority of the audiences were wearing black dress code too!








Above are all my beloved friends who enjoyed the concert together with me. Beside that, it was my first time shooting at concert. I would say that, it wasn't easy to take picture of the celebrities/singers especially when they are performing. Anyway, I was glad that I managed to took a few nice shots and share at here. p/s: all the photos were taken with Nikon D90.

To Arthur!!
