So after Jennifer Hudson pulled out of the 2014 MTV World Stage Malaysia, it was announced earlier today that Thaitanium now joins the line up!
Thaitanium are SICK! I remember them from the MTV Asia Awards back in 2006 when they performed with Simon Webbe of Blue. I don’t remember much about that performance but the existence of Thaitanium definitely registered in my mind from that point onward.
After a whole lot of teasing, MTV Asia has finally announced earlier today that Jennifer Hudson and B.O.B. are the final 2 artists who joins Yuna and Boys Republic in the line up for the 2014 edition of MTV World Stage Malaysia!
Once again, the 2014 MTV World Stage Malaysia is happening on 16 August 2014, 7.30 pm at Sunway Lagoon.
They’re still giving away passes to the show at worldstage.mtvasia.com. As usual, the passes to the show are FREE so do not pay any money to get your hands on them!
Official event hashtag: #worldstageMY
