MTV World Stage (VIP area)

MTV World Stage – we were there!

Thanks to MTV Asia, Liz and Orchid got VIP passes to the MTV World Stage at Sunway Lagoon on 31 July 2010. Here’s Orchid’s account of the event.

It was wet, but not so wild at the almost 6-hour long marathon concert. Why not so wild? There were only four acts, namely BUNKFACE, WONDER GIRLS, TOKIO HOTEL and KATY PERRY but the concert ran for six long hours! Due to the rain, there were technical difficulties and it took forever for the crew to set up the stage for each act. They played MTV videos in between the acts, but the intervals just got way too long man. It must have gotten really hot, wet and smelly at the non-VIP area too. Poor concert goers also had to buy expensive mineral water (at RM5 per bottle) and food. Some started queuing to get front and center at noon!

At the VIP and VVIP area, MTV provided free flow of food and drinks so it was at least bearable. They served Korean barbecue chicken sticks (from the Street Cafe), satay, Indonesian fried rice, roti canai (the out of a box kind), soft drinks and dessert. The most useful item provided however, was a cool MTV World Stage plastic poncho that kept most of us dry throughout the rainy evening.

Due to the rain, the giant LCD screen on stage got short-circuited. There wasn’t any LCD display when the Wonder Girls came to do their set! Awww….but they bravely performed and not many noticed the technical hiccup at first. However, they had to do their last song – NOBODY again right at the end, when Katy Perry finished her set – for tv recording purposes I assumed. Energy was low and even the MTV VJs had already left the concert (to go to the after party at a club nearby) by then. The crowd that stayed right up to the end however, got a very warm farewell from the lovely Wonder Girls. Sun the leader promised that they will come back to Malaysia for a full-fledged concert soon. Oh yes please!!!

No DSLR’s allowed, so all pictures taken on my iPhone.

Venue: Sunway Lagoon – as usual, they drained out the wave pool for us to partayyyy!
