Its that time of the year again! When the chorus of “To Arthur!” will be heard on the streets. Last year 15,000 people rocked to the thumping, trademark tunes of multi-platinum band, the Black Eyed Peas. This year promises a pumped up, hip-hop, rock and R&B energized concert with back-to-back electrifying performances!
Last Tuesday, 17 Aug, I was invited to a Media Launch (as a blogger) where the acts for Arthur’s Day 2010 was revealed! The event was held in @Live in Sunway Pyramid, a newly opened club. Took this pic of the goodie bag when i got home, they gave a glass and a keychain. Cute touch with the glass kan?
The night started off with pints of Guinness. I liked the fact that they had both from the tap and in the bottle cause I know picky drinkers who actually prefer one over the other. After a couple of glasses, Serena C and Adam Carruthers came on stage to kick off the night. (pic credit to The Jessicat)
Soon after, Mark Jenner, The Marketing Director of Guinness Anchor Marketing Sdn Bhd, came on stage to amp up the atmosphere and finally announce who the main artiste is. It was none other than, TIMBALAND!!! The super-producer has created hits for top artists such as Aaliyah, Missy Elliot, Destiny’s Child, Ludacris, Jay-Z and many others. He has also successfully collaborated with numerous music icons such as Madonna, Leona Lewis, Katy Perry, Keri Hilson, 50 cent, etc.
