FANS of Indonesian rock band Ungu mark your calendars.
The popular 90s band will be back in Kuala Lumpur after five years to perform their hit songs “Demi Waktu”, “Tercipta Untukku”, “Kekasih Gelapku” and many more。 Ungu’s last visit to Malaysia was in 2017 and they’re slated to return for a live concert on Nov 19 in conjunction with the band’s 26th anniversary.
Organised by Star Planet, Ungu’s 26th Anniversary Live in Malaysia will take place at Menara PGRM’s STAR Convention and Exhibition Centre in KL. Tickets will officially go on sale via ticket2u.com.my on Aug 30 (from 12pm) with a 10% early bird discount on the first 500 tickets sold. Tickets are priced at RM188, RM238, RM328, RM388, RM458 and RM598 (subject to a RM4 ticket fee). All VVIP ticket purchasers will receive an autographed poster and an opportunity to take group photos with the artists.
Founded in 1996, Ungu comprises lead vocalist Pasha, guitarists Enda and Oncy, bassist Makki and drummer Rowman. In 2005, Ungu’s album “Melayang” was a huge success, gaining them tremendous popularity in Indonesia and across Asia. In 2015, Ungu released their seventh studio album “Mozaik”, which sold more than 200,000 copies and won a platinum recording award.
Later in the same year, lead vocalist Pasha was elected as the deputy mayor of Palu in Central Sulawesi. Enda and Oncy took over as vocalists and the band remained somewhat active. Pasha finally reunited with the band members after his office term ended in 2018 and he proclaimed the return of Ungu.
Fans are certainly looking forward to the band’s long-awaited new album, which is believed to be in the works.
