8 Exciting live concerts in KL to look forward to in 2022

Concert season has returned

Live concerts are coming back to KL in full swing and we can't wait—mark your calendars for these upcoming shows

After two years of staying confined in the safety of our homes amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, outdoor activities and gatherings are now back at full blast along with live concerts and we have never been more excited!

Following the lockdown restrictions, many shows were forced to be postponed or cancelled which left many fans waiting in anticipation for the next big announcement only to be let down with another cancellation. Music was strictly enjoyed at home through our handy devices and while it was fun, let’s be honest—it’s nowhere as exhilarating as live concerts.

Well, wait no longer because the good news is that our favourite artists are just as thrilled as we are to get back out into the world! From Justin Bieber’s Justice Tour to Undercurrent at REXKL, mark your calendars for these upcoming concerts because we guarantee that you will not want to miss out!
