Looking forward to attending live shows again? For your easy reference, we’ve put together a list of the most important concerts, performances and events in KL to take note of this 2022.

Concerts are back and with it Justin Bieber. While the superstar might have broken the Internet when his ‘Justice World Tour’ was resurrected for October 2022, he won’t be the only artist to croon before a live audience in KL this year. Plenty more will be progressively jetting in to entertain Malaysians who have been musically deprived.

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

Justin Lo’s ‘Fresh Start’ on 30 April 2022

The myths of lost souls patrolling the Kuala Lumpur–Karak Expressway in the depth of the night, as well as that of a yellow vehicle piloted by a phantom driver, are purportedly among the country’s most infamous paranormal activities. This May, an immersive pop-up horror experience jointly presented by Pepsi, Hauntu and The Livescape Group will breathe life into the hair-raising tales of the highway bisecting the Titiwangsa Mountains, through a series of compelling storytelling, lifelike characters and terrifying effects. 

Taking place at The Linc 11am-10pm, ‘Lost in Karak’ isn’t for the faint-hearted. But that’s the reason you will be there – you aren’t terrified, are you? Tickets are priced at RM29 per pax before May 1, or RM39 per pax after the promo ends.

Thanks to a hilarious yet brutally scathing put down of a fried rice recipe originally aired on BBC, the YouTube comedian turned Internet sensation has been sought out by Michelin-star chefs for peer approval. Our March 2021 cover star will return to his homeland to dish out more laughter – this time before a live audience at the KL Convention Centre. 

Adopting the Uncle Roger persona, Nigel has raked up hundreds of millions of views on YouTube. But why watch YouTube when you can be humoured in person?

Tickets range from RM128 to RM228. The show starts at 8pm.

American rock band Boys Like Girls are lending their edge to KL. Originally slated for July 2021, the Asia-Pacific leg of their world tour was pushed to October 2022. They are set to appear in KL a week before Justin Bieber’s tropes. While details including the venue, tickets, etc are scant as of writing, it is expected that they will perform their 2006 eponymous album in its entirety.

Justin Bieber’s ‘Justice World Tour’ on 22 October 2022

Postponed ad infinitum due to the global Covid outbreak and subsequent complications on tour, ‘Justice World Tour’ is finally back on the card 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 the 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.
