Long Live The Queen: Break Free Rocked Kuala Lumpur

They came, they conquered, and I was there to witness the electrifying magic of the CONCERT OF THE CHAMPIONS – LONG LIVE THE QUEEN, which took place on the 20th of September at Kuala Lumpur’s Zepp Hall. Milestone Production brought this unforgettable four-night musical extravaganza to our city.

Long Live The Queen An Epic Show

For those who have been longing for the legendary rock band Queen and their timeless tunes, this four-night spectacle delivered by four exceptionally talented Italian musicians was a dream come true. Giuseppe Malinconico, the lead vocalist of Break Free, had the daunting task of stepping into some mighty big shoes, and he unquestionably rose to the occasion that night. Giuseppe, not only a gifted singer but also a proficient pianist, beautifully rendered Queen’s iconic masterpiece and my particular favourite, “Bohemian Rhapsody,” (amongst others) on the piano. The other three members of the band were equally remarkable, with the drummer igniting the crowd with his infectious energy.

Zepp Kuala Lumpur was packed to the brim with fans eager to bask in the magnetic allure of this iconic band. Break Free treated us all to a mesmerizing performance of Queen’s timeless classics, including “We Will Rock You,” “We Are the Champions,” “Under Pressure,” “Radio Gaga,” “I Want to Break Free,” “Killer Queen,” “A Kind of Magic,” “Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Somebody to Love,” and many more. In total, they belted out 18 unforgettable songs that had the audience on their feet.

Ohh I’m in the crowd. Spot me if you can!

The four-night music celebration, which ran from the 20th to the 23rd of September, commenced with a spectacular Royal Charity Premiere benefiting the Yayasan Tunku Naquiyuddin (YTN-Foundation). Yang Amat Mulia Tunku Naquiyuddin ibni Tuanku Ja’afar, the Chairman of the Board of Trustees, hosted this star-studded premiere night, graced by Malaysia’s most illustrious personalities. On a sad note, Y.A.M. Tunku Naquiyuddin spoke of his late mother and dedicated the show to her, the late Tunku Ampuan Najihah who passed away last 8th September at the age of 100. He said, since the show was in memory of Queen, the band, then it would also be fitting to dedicate the show to his late mother who was also a Queen of Malaysia.

(Note: Allahyarhamah Tunku Ampuan Najihah was Malaysia’s 10th Queen, from 26 April 1994 – 25 April 1999)

YTN, established in 1996, has been a beacon of educational assistance, contributing over RM5,000,000 to the cause. Their successful Piers project, aimed at enhancing English education in rural schools, has touched numerous lives, and they’ve also extended their support to homes and institutions. The RM360,000 raised during this event will be channeled into an education fund to nurture the brightest young leaders of Malaysia’s future.

The energy in the air was contagious throughout the night. We sang and danced along. The concert-goers were not only treated to sensational music but also had the chance to participate in thrilling lucky draws and lucky dips, adding an extra layer of excitement to this already unforgettable evening.

The last show will be on Saturday, 23rd September. For those who are looking for a fun night out with a date or friends, you can buy tickets to CONCERT OF THE CHAMPIONS – LONG LIVE THE QUEEN via Ticketcharge.
