After the success of last year’s “100 Hari Acoustic Tour” series, which celebrated Imran Ajmain‘s resolve to quit smoking for good, the man himself is back again with a more upscale showcase, to be held at Playden @ The Arts House this coming 24th and 25th February 2012. Both shows are slated to begin at 8pm on both days, sandwiching an added show at 3pm on the second day. It has been quite awhile since Imran has held a big-scale showcase for fans of his music, the last if my memory has not failed me, was back in February 2008, a good four years ago. I believe this showcase will feature new singles which he will release soon, so those attending will most probably be able to get an advanced preview before radio listeners do.
Like the memorable acoustic tour which was held at Badoque Cafe last July, this showcase will feature Fazley Yaakob (or Dato’ Fazley Yaakob to be more precise), the man who made the song “Asmara Ini” a haunting hit a decade ago. 2011 was surely a memorable year for the man, as his wife gave birth to their third child in September and he was also conferred the title of Dato’ by the Pahang sultanate in December. Local up-and-coming trio, Northbound, completes the line-up. I’ve included one of their Youtube performances below for you to get a feel of their potential. Personally, I’m quite impressed and cannot wait to watch them live. To purchase the tickets to the showcase, you can either get them at Badoque Cafe, Spyke or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
