AFTER PARTY: Paramore Live in KL @ National Stadium, Bukit Jalil (19/10/2010)

The Story Begins...

The wait is over. After 6 years touring the globe, Paramore finally making a stop on our soil. Expensive tickets? Cry your heart out 'cause 8,000 fans were there and believed the concert was worth more than what they have paid.

Hayley and co put up a quality show to their fans who waited outside the venue as early as 4PM and performed 18 songs from their albums including their famous hits "That's What You Get", "The Only Deception" and "Decode" (ahem... for the Twilight freaks... ahem) with two encores over 2 hours at this long-awaited concert.

In the middle of the show, the band did a short acoustic session of four songs with light bulbs hanging on top and a couch as props. It was so calming when they performed "Misguided Ghost" and left the crowd singing the last few lines before they continue to rock the stage. Dim lights, the sound of acoustics and Hayley's voice that sounded the same like you hear in the CD were just amazing.

Fans wanted more after they left them hanging as soon as they finished performing "The Only Exception". So they did another two songs, "Brick by Boring Brick" and "Misery Business" to wrap the show. Y2K (the opening band) and a fan were invited to the stage for the final song. How lucky that dude was! He got the chance to hold the iconic carrot mic! Confetti, fireworks and one bloody rocking set drenched the crowd in sweats. Thank you, Paramore. Malaysians enjoyed every bit of your concert and we can finally sleep well at night.

The End
