It was an awesomely breathtaking night at Arena of Stars at Genting Resort, one of planet Earth's finest resorts on 15 March 2014 as Il Divo gave their usual sterling performance that got everyone's adrenalin pumping!
Of course the cuties did not sing hard rock. heavy metal or trance but oldies-but-goodies songs that everyone, from teenagers to octogenarians know, appreciate and love!
Dato Nancy Yeoh, Malaysia's PR Queen picked me from my palatial Palladium and with Doreen and Diana, drove us to Arena of Stars or rather her chauffeur did since we were busy feeding our faces as the show started at 8 pm.
Dato Nancy Yeoh paid RM 980 for my VIP ticket which made me almost passed out! I thought the best tickets were RM 100---just shows how long it has been since I paid for my own ticket! Actually I cannot remember the time when I actually paid for a concert since it is against my religion Keeism.
Il Divo was formed by Simon Cowell in 2004 under his Syco label, Syco as in 'Psycho'!
Il Divo is an operatic pop vocal group belting out familiar, famous hits from West End musicals in London to New York's Broadway to soulful hits and melodious soul-stirrers...oh well you get my drift!
Well, 2004 is 10 years ago and I was disappointed to see 2 of them have aged badly---Spaniard Carlos Marin looked like their father while Frenchman Sebastian Izambard looked middle aged and not a Justin Bieber! However Swiss tenor Urs Buhler looked sultry, sexy and Spanish while American David Miller is a head taller than the rest and looked like a supermodel, actor and Greek god rolled into one.
We were warned not to take photos and 99% obliged but during the finale, 99% took out their phones and snapped away! I love it as the ushers were outnumbered by the thousands so they gave up since no jail could accommodate so many.
After the one and half hour show, the more highclass, rich and famous guests like me and Dato Nancy Yeoh went to the RM 20,000 membership Genting Club as Il Divo would be there to chill! And they did as the staff of Dato Nancy Yeoh threw a surprise birthday party for her!
