The Launch and Lineup Announcement of Arthur's Day 2013

28 August 2013

I've never had the opportunity to be part of any of the previous Arthur's Day celebrations, so when I heard the launch was going to be held at KL Live, I jumped at the chance to learn first-hand who would be gracing Arthur's stage this year.

Arthur’s Day™ celebrates the founder of GUINNESS®, Arthur Guinness, and his remarkable legacy of goodness through music. This year, we pay homage to his bold character and people like him, those who are ‘more’ than just ordinary; much like the Artists that will be rocking the Arthur’s Day™ stage, our Arthur Guinness Fund recipients and our GUINNESS® drinkers, who choose a GUINNESS® every time.” said Bruce Dallas, Marketing Director of Guinness Anchor Berhad.

With free flow Guinness stout and a buffet line, members of the media + invited guests mingled and enjoyed the live music from local band Morning Glory, while waiting for the most exciting part of the night: The announcement of which international artistes would be coming to Sepang, Malaysia this 27th September to make Arthur's Day the best one yet!
Always have a blast when Joanna and Sam are involved!

So I know you're probably thinking "Enough! No more photos! Just tell who are this years' headliners!!" Well, how about you tell me? Here's a clue:

Superman (It's Not Easy)
100 Years
The Devil In The Wishing Well

I think the first song gave this band away! Who could forget singing along to lyrics such as
I'm more than a bird, I'm more than a plane
I'm more than some pretty face beside a train
And it's not easy to be me

Ladies and gentlemen, get ready for, FIVE FOR FIGHTING!! =D

Which other band would hope that he Gives You Hell? It's no Dirty Little Secret that we would never want to hear Tyson tell us that this is The Last Song

Candles burn, 'cuz the world will always turn
And I'll burn both ends until my fire's out
Lost in the darkness I can still scream out.

Making the Kids In The Street scream out with joy, The All-American Rejects are going to rock your socks off this 27th September 2013!

Last but not least, Brit boy bands seem to taking the world by storm, and when they love their fans even if they can't sing or dance, as long as they can Walk Like Rihanna, well, how could you not want them on Malaysian soil?

I can't even find a place to start
How do I choose between my head and heart?
Till it ceases I'll never know
How do you get up from an All Time Low?

The Wanted, we're gonna be very Glad You Came!

I am SO looking forward to Arthur's Day! Guess KK will have to wait a little longer for my return, cz there's no way I wanna miss this!

With month-long activities leading up to the big day, you're gonna wanna LIKE Guinness Malaysia's facebook page to stay in the loop, or visit to find out how you can score tickets to the event!
