Thanks to @jeffsandhu for posting the updates on Bastille’s tour in SEA, and they were in KL, Singapore and Philippines over the first week of January.  Or else, with the very little promotions nor information available online as well as print, we may have missed their coming to Malaysia.

While speaking to many others, almost all of them never heard of Bastille coming to KL.

Well, organiser, may have its reason or simply not sure how to promote a great band from London.

The band was started by Dan Smith, the lead singer of the band in 2010, a relatively new band, but already gaining the major momentum in UK, US and parts of Asia.

The concert organiser had their very first concert at KL Live, which is a clubbing outlet.  Anyway, the place is not really huge, a rather small town hall like venue to pack, probably 1,000+ Bastille fans.

They did all of their top chart songs, and my personal favorites Bad Blood and Pompeii.

Overall experience has been great, more so, Bastille is introduced by @retnavijayan to me first, followed by our sons, who also Bastille fans.  We did not bring them along, why?  Not because of their bad grades at school, but they are not 18, just yet.

Technicians, or alike, fixing the lighting system, took quite a while, almost towards the last few songs

Anyway, the place or rather where we were at, packed with terrible smokers, drinkers.  Drink responsibly, but smoking, stay away.
