KL Gig Guide, Here Are All The Live Concerts Happening In The Malaysian Capital

Looking forward to attending live shows again?

Well, for your easy reference, we’ve put together a list of the most important concerts (Justin Bieber included) happening next door in KL to take note of this 2022. If you’re looking to get a taste of music on your next trip over the border, here’s what you may want to consider.

Concerts are back and with it Justin Bieber, who’s slated to perform in KL in October 2022 for his ‘Justice World Tour’. The latter might not materialise after all though, as the singer revealed over the weekend that he has been diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt Syndrome, a neurological condition that has caused half of his face to be paralysed. He has cancelled his upcoming shows in Toronto, Washington DC and New York so he can focus on recovering and regaining movement in his facial muscles. The fate of his KL gig remains unknown for now, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed that he’ll be completely well by then.

The superstar isn’t the only artist expected to croon before a live audience in KL this year. Plenty more will be progressively jetting in to entertain fans who have been musically deprived.

Read on and add these dates for the most highly anticipated concerts, shows and events to your 2022 calendars.

Postponed ad infinitum due to the global Covid outbreak and subsequent complications on tour — and has now hit a new snag with Justin Bieber’s recent Ramsay Hunt syndrome diagnosis — the ‘Justice World Tour’ will hopefully be finally back on the cards for Beliebers in Malaysia. Justin Bieber is known for successive chart-topping numbers ever since he burst onto the scene as an adolescent with the infectious ‘Baby’.

His versatile talent has taken him from dance pop to ballads and even Christmas specials. The set list will include ‘Where Are U Now’, ‘What Do You Mean?’, among others.

If you’re clamouring for a ticket to Justin Bieber’s 2022 show — one of the most highly awaited concerts in KL — we wish you luck. They have long been sold out. The concert is held at the National Stadium.
