Brian McKnight, the talented soulful R&B crooner makes his second debut in Kuala Lumpur.
An Evening with Brian McKnight will be staged at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Kuala Lumpur on 9 April 2017 at 8.30pm. The evening’s theme takes its name after McKnight’s latest DVD featuring a live concert experience that was held in Los Angeles and launched in September last year.
The compilation includes Brian’s greatest hits and features three of his latest hits including his current single ‘Everything’.
The live performance in Kuala Lumpur is brought to you by LADS Entertainment and LADS Inc. of the United States, known for its reputation in organising major international shows.
Its Executive Director, Helmi Dato Ilyas said “We are delighted to present a renowned artist like Mcknight back in Kuala Lumpur, whose repertoire and string of hit songs in the international music scene speaks for itself. His songs were practically love anthems for many across the globe, particularly his hit single Back at One back in the 90s”.
He added that this is the start of many more world standard concerts to be held in South East Asia including Malaysia, thus not only creating opportunities for Malaysians and its regional neighbours to anticipate state-of-the art entertainment, but generating a stream of revenue for the country.
