Music Man Live Concert 2 May 2009
My ticket! Has become one of collections now. hehe!
The poster displayed outside the stadium.
It was the night that I've been waiting for.
Music Man has been occupying my heart!!!
His concert was AWESOME!
I find no reason if I want to make any compaint about this concert, regardless the bad service of the sux organiser, GALAXY and the RELA/security guards of that night.
I went to this concert with my best friends..
They are leehom's crazy fans too!
I bought RM398 ticket, however it's worth to be spent!!
Luckily that I din dispose it off to others!
We reached Stadium Bukit Jalil around 7.15pm before the concert started at 8 something. It was my second time been there. Same gang same place and same objective. The difference is last time we went there by LRT whereas this time was going by car. Thanks to Yuan Zhen's friend for dropping us there. His name is Jonathan right? If im not mistaken.. He was the driver of that day. Without him, I think we have to wait for long queue during taking LRT towards that stadium.
Li Chuang didnt go with us, she went with her friends. They got free tickets! RM398 as well! How lucky they are..^^
There was a small incident when I queued up in ZONE 398 before entering into the stadium. The RELA checked my bag and asked me to surrender my camera after they discovered my camera in the bag! I was like so shocked and tried to negotiate with them, but failed. I was so unwilling to surrender my camera, firstly, there must be no guarantee whether or not would they take good care of my camera, secondly, if I surrender it, meaning that I wont be able to snap photo during the concert!
I started getting panic but somehow, I insisted not to do so. I challenged them. I put the camera inside one of my friends, Tze Suen's bag and fortunately, she could avoid the suspection of the guards when they checked her bag!! Yeah!
When I entered the stadium, I saw a HUGE CROWD! EXTREMELY HUGE!!
There were over 25,000 audiences surrounding the stadium, waiting for MUSIC MAN, and so I am~! The stage might look simple and plain with dark background but, it was totally a different story when the lightings were on and the concert began. The animation shown on the LCD BIG screen was terrific, together with the lightings and sound system, they made the concert so LIVE! The theme of the concert is talked about super heroes such as batman, superman, spiderman, and of course music man~ therefore the big four screens which acted as the backdrop of the stage full of the cinematic elements, and the graphical animations. What a good and impressive visual effect that I ever seen. NICE!

( I dont think I can take such nice shoots!!!)
These are taken by using my hp,since digital cam is not allowed.
Well, I used digital cam to take this shot quickly when the RELA is not around.
The show began by two local artist Daniel Lee and....an "unknown lady". I only came to my sense when Lee Hom's special friend from Ireland, Bahamut Guitar was being presented in the middle of air where the stage is. NICE GUITAR!! After that, the lights of the whole stadium switched off..indicating that MUSIC MAN was already ready to ROCK and ROLL with us!!!! And at this moment, the 25,000 fans started screaming and yelling!! It was explosive, cool and overwhelming! Yen Shan, Kim Ten and I were starting screaming and our excitements maximize to the fullest!!!

Super VVIP of the night- Bahamut!!
The next thing I know, Leehom is in a short distance where I sit. And, I saw him coming down with his special spaceship and BAHAMUT. Oh-My-God!~ he looked so charming! DAMN CHUN!!! First song to rock up the crowd was 摇滚怎么了. Not bad version! I like it! Actually I couldn't remember the sequence of the songs that he performed at that night, but what I most impressed was his dreamy+sexy+skillful vocal.. I like the way he modified his songs to ROCK and ROll genre such as安全感, 爱得得体，大城小爱..etc. Surprisingly, he sang lots of old songs on that night too! The songs which he seldom perform in public. Moreover, he was superb TALENTED! He can play piano, violin, drum, guitar, bass, rap, dance, and even bit box too! The ultimate aim I came for this concert of his is to witness how good he can be doing his music LIVE; and I'm truly impressed, more than satisfied!! lolxx...
ishh! the kid's head is blocking my visual!
I love the most when he played violin and piano. It felt so romantic when he played the song 'When you wish upon the stars' using his violin. Anyway, I still wish to see him playing JULIA during the concert, but he din. What a waste! Then, the way he played the piano was so energetic! *Applaud!* Not to forget, he's excellent with the drums and guitar too! And, dedicating to this concert, he brought his beloved new specially made guitar to Malaysia, 'BAHAMUT' 巴哈姆特 which costs RM 100K. waoo!
Besides, when Leehom sang 改变自己, he also diversified himself into 4 leehoms. they are Xiao Wang, Xiao Li, Xiao Hong and Wang Lee Hom. Cute isn't?? hahaha! Anyway, just Xiao Li (the drumer) and Wang Leehom are the real leehom, the other two guitarists (Xiao Wang and Xiao Hong) are fake leehom. Another surpise which occurred on that night was, he played magic trick with suddendly dissappered from the box when he went into a big box. Then without 5 seconds, he reappeared in the middle of audience seats!! OMG!! I screamed like hell at that moment as I knew that he will pass by beside me later on. I was like ..so excited and faster go stand by before he walked to my area. It's hard to believe that he passed by in front of me!! I couldnt touch him but my friend could!!! lolx! But I was satisfied as I can see him closely, and he is really tall indeed! I saw his double eyelid..so lovely!!

Anyway, no matter how excited I was, I still had a small frustration on that night too.
Although I could hide my camera and brought it into stadium successfully, yet I failed to take it out and took photos throughout the concert! Due to my seat location, I was warned by the RELA or so called the security guard not to take photos during the concert. I kept being warned by them whenever I handed up my camera. There was a guy somemore wanna grab my cam away, but I refused to let him do so. It made no sense if we were forbided for snapping photos during the concert!!! I purposely borrowed camera from my dad, then I couldnt use it..What the hell!! I really mad of that! I hate them! Well, if they could show out their good attitude and warn us politely, maybe I wont be so angry. I didnt like the way they warn people not to use camera. They used torch light to point at us or even use their fingers too. Such unfriendly treating way, making me more angry and ruined my concert mood! Therefore, to avoid being treated badly from "Barbarians" again, I chose to give up taking photos subsequently. Sighhh... But anyway, I've taken some. =)
Lee Hom never disappoint any one of us, reappearing in his mucisman t-shirt, casual and lengzai as he always is during the encore part. Then the concert was ended at 11pm with the last song -Kiss Goodbye~! Nice and touching!!
A well known guitarist~ Jamie Wilson.
haha! we got the chance to snap photo with this guitarist too!
To be frankly, I damn like this Music Man concert much!! Its worth to see it!!! And I feel glad that I have chance to witness the real leehom! Not only his good looking, but his EVERYTHING!
Effect was superb, live band was amazing, his live performace was awesome, graphic and every other thing else is simply the best I ever seen. I truly enjoy my night. *Thumbs up* Looking forward for his next better production!
Some photos that I took from other sources:
I never know the view from upper seat(RM88) until I seen this.
The crowd started filling up the seats. ( I was sitting at the yellow point there )
