Fancy live concerts in KL throughout 2022?
The concerts are back and with them Justin Bieber. Although the superstar may have broken the internet when his ‘Justice World Tour’ was resurrected for October 2022, he wouldn’t be the only artist performing in front of a live audience in KL this year. Many more will gradually arrive to entertain Malays who have been deprived of music.
A list of concerts, comedy and other events in KL confirmed for 2022:
“Fresh Start” by Justin Lo on April 30, 2022

‘Lost in Karak’ May 26-30, 2022
The myths of lost souls patrolling the Kuala Lumpur-Karak highway in the depths of night, as well as that of a yellow vehicle driven by a ghost driver, are allegedly among the country’s most infamous paranormal activities. This month of May, a An immersive pop-up horror experience presented jointly by Pepsi, Hauntu and The Livescape Group will bring the breathtaking tales of the highway through the Titiwangsa Mountains to life, through a series of captivating narratives, realistic characters and terrifying effects.
Taking place at the Linc from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., “Lost in Karak” is not for the faint-hearted. But that’s what you’ll be here for – you’re not terrified, are you? Tickets are priced at RM29 per person before May 1 or RM39 per person after the promotion ends.

Nigel Ng’s ‘Haiyaa World Tour’ on June 17, 2022
Thanks to a hilarious yet brutally scathing take on a fried rice recipe originally aired on the BBC, the YouTube comedian-turned-internet sensation has been sought out by Michelin-starred chefs for the endorsement of his peers. The August Man Malaysia cover star will return to his homeland to bring even more laughs – this time in front of a live audience at the KL Convention Centre.
Adopting the persona of Uncle Roger, Nigel has racked up hundreds of millions of views on YouTube. But why watch YouTube when you can have fun in person?
Tickets range from RM128 to RM228. The show starts at 8 p.m.
