Concert Announcement! Beastie Boys to perform in Malaysia

From The Star (Malaysia):
Make a date with the Beastie Boys

KUALA LUMPUR: The legendary hip-hop act from New York, the Beastie Boys, will be coming to Malaysia for a concert on Feb 22 at the Kiara Equestrian Club here.

Event organiser Pineapple Concerts managing director Razman Razali confirmed that the multi-platinum award-winning group would be performing a week after Valentine's day.

"The Beastie Boys are expected to play for at least 1½ hours," he said yesterday.

Ticket details however will only be released next week.

The Beastie Boys, which was formed in 1979, are a hip-hop group whose rock and punk-influenced rap have made a significant impact on those in and outside the genre.

The band, which consists of Michael Diamond aka Mike D, Adam Yauch aka MCA, and Adam Horowitz aka King Ad Rock, released five albums, all of which went platinum.

The first album, Licensed To Ill, which was released in 1986 and featured the hit song Fight For Your Right, sold nine million copies.

The Boys latest album, To the 5 Boroughs, released in 2005, sold a million copies.
We feel obligated to remind fans that a concert is never official until confirmed by the artist and/or their management. Historically, the Beastie Boys do not confirm their performances until the last minute, so if you are interested in planning to attend this show, please watch this site for updates. We will do our best to pass on ticket information and any other relevant information.
