Renowned band willi be coming to Malaysia next month

(Kuala Lumpur=Koreanpress) by Ramani Rathir = One of Australia’s most renowned bands, 1927, will be performing for the first time in Malaysia as part of their “Generation-i” tour of South East Asia. The band will be performing in the recently opened Hard Rock Cafe Melaka on April 7, and Hard Rock Cafe Kuala Lumpur on April 8. 2013.

The band comprises of lead singer Erik Weideman, lead guitarist Craig Laird, bassist Simon Shapiro and drummer Damien Cooper. The 23-year-old band first burst onto the scene with their debut album “…ISH”, which sold half a million copies in Australia. The album produced the hit singles, “That’s When I Think of You”, “If I Could”, “You’ll Never Know” and “Compulsory Hero.” it remains one of the highest selling debut albums ever by an Australian band.

Last year, the band hit the music scene hard with the release of their latest album, “Generation-i.” It took three years to launch the album and once again, it showcases their songwriting skills. The album was prepared and compiled by Erik Weideman and other members of the band. Targeted at the older and younger generations, the songs come across as thoughtful and mature.

“We are delighted that a renowned Australian band such as 1927 has chosen Hard Rock Cafe Kuala Lumpur and Melaka to stage their performances. The band has held unbeatable records in Australia’s music industry, and will provide unforgettable moments for Malaysians to experience,” said Nor Esah Abdul Ghani, Marketing Manager of Hard Rock Cafe Kuala Lumpur.

Fans of 1927 will be able to re-acquaint themselves with the band, which was also invited as a special guest on the recent Roxette tour of Australia, playing to over 100,000 people with rave reviews. Their performance in Melaka and Kuala Lumpur will feature a combination of their classical hits together with numbers from their latest release.

1927 will be joining the list of other illustrious bands that have performed in Hard Rock Cafe Kuala Lumpur, two of which were I Am Giant and Go West. It will also
be the first Australian band to perform at the newly opened Hard Rock Cafe Melaka, which is located at the entrance of the Jonker Walk and within the UNESCO World Heritage Site. The 1,372-square-metre property features over 90 memorabilia from Hard Rock’s iconic collection, ranging from a Fender Telecaster guitar played and signed by the legendary Bruce Springsteen, to a jacket worn by Will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas during his solo album promotion of “Songs About Girls” in 2007.
