meeting place


The Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC). Not to be confused with the Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC- the official name of the Twin Towers.) The irony is that both are within walking distance of each other. So, if you're in a taxi and tell the cabby you need to get to KLCC, you better make clear which you're heading to. The convention centre is now a year old. When it first opened last year, it did so without the Certificates of Fitness approved. Rushed opened to recover the money spent. I remember doing a show there then. While we were rehearsing, one of the hooks of the 1-ton lighting truss above us cracked. Scary. I did another show there last weekend and all is good now. It's an impressive place but with most Malaysian buildings, the plans weren't carefully thought out. This is a convention centre with parking bays for only 600+ cars and only has one road leading to it's entrance.

Like minitebera, would love to see your show someday :)

Is KLCC (Twin tower) fully 100% occupied? do we need another building for this?

Well the building is pretty even it the logistics getting there are not! Here in San Diego, I feel that way about transportation in general - What were they thinking?!

Just one road, eh? If it's crowded, I'm sure I'd prefer to walk to the place. And, yes Ed. I'd love to see your show as well! Will you play in Jakarta sometime? hehe..
