Miyavi Live In Kuala Lumpur 2012

Asahi (Japan’s No. 1 Beer) is proud to present larger than life Japanese rock musician Miyavi live exclusively at The Stage in Avenue K, Kuala Lumpur, at 8.00pm, on Wednesday 25th July 2012.

Known as the samurai guitarist, he has a flair for playing the electric guitar with just his fingers, instead of with a conventional pick, and he is achieving worldwide appeal for his original, one of a kind slap style. Through his three successful world tour, this visual kei artiste already conquered 30 countries across North and South America, Europe, Asia, and Australia, with over 150 shows.

He converged all the genres of rock, punk, hip hop, and dance, into his most recent album released in late 2010 - the innovative “What’s My Name?”, in which all the songs are composed only with guitar and drums. One year after that, Miyavi conceptualised a collaboration project with established ‘samurai’ artistes across all genres on the “Samurai Session World Series”, which saw its first release “Strong” - featuring Japanese hip hop artiste Kreva.

A distinguished and bona fide rock star in his home country, Miyavi also has a legion of loyal and dedicated following worldwide amongst the Japanese rock fans circle. “I realise that I have so many fans outside of Japan, and I really want to visit them and perform at many places overseas,” shared the maestro.

Organised by entertainment company A-Creations, the concert is supported by JETRO (Japan External Trade Organisation), endorsed by the Embassy of Japan, supported by Pavilion’s Tokyo Street (Partner).

ABOUT MIYAVIBorn in Osaka, Japan, Miyavi moved to Tokyo with just his guitar on hand after quitting high school at the young age of 17. Soon after, he found success with indie rock band Dué le Quartz as their guitarist Miyabi. He eventually pursued a solo career and re-invented himself as Miyavi, and he was also part of the Japanese rock group S.K.I.N.

Miyavi now wears the many caps of being a guitarist, singer, song writer, arranger, record producer, actor, as well as dancer. More recently, he gained recognition amongst his peers after producing music for television commercials such as Uniqlo, Toshiba, and Nissan Motors. Besides that, his many song collaborations notably include Tomoyasu Hotei, Maki Nomiya, Studio Apartment, Yoko Kanno, Anna Tsuchiya, and Good Charlotte.
