Tokio Hotel to rock Malaysia
POPULAR German pop rock outfit Tokio Hotel is set to play a Malaysian concert date in May. The band is part of the “Everyone Connect With Tokio Hotel” concert, sponsored by national telco TM, at Central Park Avenue, 1 Utama, Selangor on May 1.
It is the band’s first foray to South East Asia. Formed in 2001, in a town called Magdeburg in Germany, Tokio Hotel’s global reputation has been enhanced by recent chart success and tours in the United States after dominating the European music channels for more than two years now with striking video clips and charged-up pop punk tunes.
The band’s line-up includes flamboyant frontman Bill Kaulitz, his guitarist twin brother Tom, drummer Gustav Schafer and bassist Georg Listing.
The band’s English-language album “Humanoid” has been an international hit since its release last year. It is the band’s second English album after the breakthrough “Scream” in 2007.
Exclusive passes for Tokio Hotel’s concert in Malaysia will be activated by a TM campaign, to be announced soon.
