She Rawks!

Yyyyyyyeeeeeeeaaaaaahhhhhhhhh!!! Alicia Keys Rocks y'all!!

It is such a waste for any R&B lover who missed it coz it was filled with energy. Reshmonu got things started by performing for the 1st 1/2 hour. Altimet (of Teh Tarik Crew) was his guest for his Like This Like That song. After that we waited for another 15 minutes before the lady herself took over the stage, with her trademark hat while holding a cane and everybody just went AaAAaaaaaaAaAaaaaaaAaaaaaa!! *clap*clap*clap*

What's an Alicia Keys's concert without a grand piano? She performed about half the show with the piano and the other half showing off her sultry dancing skills which was pretty cool. I remember her singing one song while flirting with the audience by laying on the piano and later played part of the intro to her next song (while still laying on the piano) - get what I mean?

She belted out a mixture of tunes from her 1st album and the lastest one. Can't recall the sequence, but these are some of them:

Karma
Heartburn
A Woman's Worth
How Come You Don't Call Me?
Rock With You
If I Ain't Got You
Never Felt This Way
Buttleflyz
Fallin'
Diary
Goodbye
You Don't Know My Name

There are a few songs that I don't recognize. I remember her singing a cover song about war but I fail to know its title. If anyone knows, please share with me ;)

Getting out of the parking area was like a whole new ball game. Cars were parked on the grass area with only 1 narrow way out. The only way to get out of the place is to wait for owners of cars that were blocking the way to remove them, or just go through the high curb - which didn't seem to be a problem for SUVs and MPVs.

There we saw Malaysians and foreigners working together to help each other get their car over the curb, by instructing them on where to turn and strategically placing bricks to cushion their tires on its way down and to avoid scraping their car. People were standing around to look at other people's attempts and they went wooo everytime someone scraps the bottom of their car or misses the bricks.

We decided not to join the fun and waited till the path was clear. What a way to end the night :D
