13 November and 27 November, David Bowie Tribute Night @ No Black Tie, KL

This show is not Johan Sultan & The Moonbeams’ first rodeo. The band has performed the David Bowie Tribute Night for three times now at No Black Tie and The Gaslight KL. Not only that, the band played all the songs in Bowie’s last album, Blackstar, as a farewell to Bowie (who passed away two days after the release of his last masterpiece). This year, they’re back with another tribute night for audiences to relive Bowie’s iconic music. A must-not miss event for Bowie fans to enjoy his best songs.

Ticket price is RM42. For more information, visit here.

19 November, Chamber Concert VIII @ Malaysia Philharmonic Orchestra
