April 04 2011

KUALA LUMPUR, 4 APRIL 2011 – Malaysia's legendary rock band, WINGS, has decided to extend its performance at Istana Budaya for one more night exclusively for Harley-Davidson Kuala Lumpur and the NAZA Group of Companies.

'Konsert Wings Opera Hidup' was originally slated from 29th April 2011 till 1st May 2011, will now be extended for another night.

Dato' SM Zulkifli SM Amin, the Group Chief Operating Officer of the NAZA Group of Companies said it was only fitting that WINGS received the support from Harley-Davidson Kuala Lumpur as the band portrays the essence of the brand.

"WINGS has been synonymous with Harley-Davidson and the band had been responsible for introducing a new culture to Malaysians 25 years ago. Now, it is only fitting that Harley-Davidson supported this one-off concert at best we can," he said.

Themed 'Harley-Davidson Nite', this special show on 2nd May 2011 will be held exclusively for all Harley-Davidson owners and clients as well as for selected customers and guests of the NAZA Group of Companies.

This is the first time a rock band has been allowed to perform at Istana Budaya and the concert will highlight the group's involvement in the local music scene for the past 25 years and will feature an orchestral treatment of the band's hits, backed by 43 members of the National Symphony Orchestra and a 16-member choir.

WINGS frontman Ahmad Azhar Othman, better known as Awie, said it was an honour for local rockers to be granted the spotlight on such a prestigious stage.

"We are also thankful to Harley-Davidson Kuala Lumpur and the NAZA Group of Companies for supporting our showcase as they have done before. The concert for Harley-Davidson will be special for us as we have always been fans of the iconic American superbike," said Awie.

Besides Awie, Joe, Eddie and Black, the concert will also feature former band members, including Mel, Mus and Jojet.

Besides sponsoring the concert, Harley Davidson will also be displaying their superbikes at Istana Budaya. NAZA will also be organising a carnival at Laman Beringin throughout the concert duration. In addition, Ducati, Vespa and Chevrolet brands will be displayed at Laman Beringin from 30th April to 2nd May.
