Organised by WGW Entertainment and supported by Malaysia Major Events (MME), a division of Malaysia Convention and Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB), a bureau under the Ministry of Tourism and Culture, OneRepublic Live in Malaysia 2018 is set to illuminate Stadium Merdeka on 25 April. Tickets go on sale 23 February through TicketCharge platforms.
Their headlining show will feature new offerings from the latest album, which was number three in the US charts upon release, as well as notable hits from their discography.
Singles from the latest album, "No Vacancy” and "Rich Love" boosted the band’s monthly listenership on digital streaming platforms from 13 million to 21 million.
OneRepublic is made up of frontman Ryan Tedder, guitarist Zach Filkins, guitarist Drew Brown, drummer Eddie Fisher and bassist and cellist Brent Kutzle. This will be the quintet’s first show in Malaysia after nearly half a decade; they last played here in 2013.
The band, formed in 2002, rose to fame on the social media platform MySpace before signing to a label and releasing a string of hits like “Apologize”, “Stop and Stare”, “Counting Stars”, “Secrets” and “If I Lose Myself”, in becoming one of the most successful and popular bands of the decade.
Throughout their music journey, they have won a number of music awards and landed many nominations, including Grammy Awards, American Music Awards and Billboard Music Awards.
