Whilst the Bond journey takes you to many different locations, and featured a number of different Bonds, one thing that has remained constant is the captivating music. The big band under the direction of Sze Wan will be accompanied by a stellar line-up composed of West End heartthrobs David Shannon and Simon Bailey and Malaysia’s very own Salamiah Hassan, Jaclyn Victor and Nikki Palikat. David Shannon has played leading roles in iconic musicals such as The Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables, Sweeney Todd and Miss Saigon. Bailey is known for his West End credits that include We Will Rock You, Les Miserables, The Phantom of the Opera, Romeo and Juliet the Musical. He recently concluded touring The Phantom of the Opera’s 25th Anniversay Concert Tour and I Can’t Sing The X Factor Musical. Imran Ahmad, author of the number 1 Bestseller at Byron Bay Writers’ Festival, The Perfect Gentleman, and a Bond enthusiast himself, will be the concert’s master of ceremony.

I like many kinds of music and I do enjoy performance like JERSEY BOYS LIVE IN MALAYSIA which held in Istana Budaya. Since this is the first James Bond themed concert in Malaysia formed with our own awesome singers paired together with Simon Bailey and David Shannon, I am looking forward for their great performance in November =) Since there will be only FOUR performance, it is best to grab the tickets now by end of the month while the 25% promotion still on ya.
If you love music and James Bond movie, share the love!!
