After the sold out of One Thousand Million Smiles in 2016, The Actors Studio Seni Teater Rakyat will be bringing back the musical tribute for a limited run from 26th to 28th October 2017 to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the legendary singer’s passing.
The success of last year’s tribute show is a testament of Sudirman’s talent and his endearing legacy. It was a great reminder why he is fondly referred to as the People’s Singer as fans from all over the country flocked to klpac, many of whom have faithfully followed his career and attended his concerts including his winning performance at the Asian Music Awards in London which cemented his place as Asia’s No. 1 Performer as well as the infamous Chow Kit road concert which brought KL to a standstill with its 100,000-strong crowd.
Like before, the tribute will feature singers from all walks of life including Malaysian Idol finalist Nikki Palikat and winner of ntv7’s Audition reality TV show, Tria Aziz. Other singers include, Amir Hazril Harith, Ian Chow, Ryonn Leong and Joel Wong.
Reminiscent of the extravagant musical shows in the 80’s, the singers will be backed by a full orchestra under the baton of Lee Kok Leong as well as a five-piece band led by Loh Ui Li as they perform Sudirman’s greatest hits such as Balik Kampung, Salam Terakhir, Hujan, Chow Kit Road and, of course, One Thousand Million Smiles.
Like the man himself, One Thousand Million Smiles will be a toe-tapping showstopper from start to finish.
