It was an awesome week for me, last Friday I watched Maroon 5 in concert but the highlight of my week was watching one of my favorite bands of all time, Switchfoot. They last rocked Kuala Lumpur in 2008, I wrote a post on them, you can check em out HERE .
Anyway on May 1, 2011, Labour Day in Kuala Lumpur would be a sweet memory for me as the boys from San Diego, California did not fail to rock the house with their hits such as ‘Dare You to Move, Stars, We Are One Tonight’ and many more. For me the band is always an inspiration as the music they produce is simply amazing. The band’s lead singer, Jon Foreman is an astounding singer and performer. Kuala Lumpur is really blessed to have them again after 3 years. Anyway here are some shots I managed to get from the concert.
The opening band for the concert was Busco or known as Bus Company:
Also this is an excerpt from Wikipedia on Switchfoot :
Switchfoot is an American rock band from San Diego, California. The band’s members are Jon Foreman (lead vocals, guitar), Tim Foreman (bass guitar, backing vocals), Chad Butler (drums, percussion), Jerome Fontamillas (guitar, keyboards, backing vocals), and Drew Shirley (guitar, backing vocals).
They are known for their energetic live shows,where the three guitarists in the line-up often operate simultaneously.
After early successes in the Christian rock scene, Switchfoot first gained mainstream recognition with the inclusion of four of their songs in the 2002 movie A Walk to Remember. This recognition led to their major label debut, The Beautiful Letdown, which was released in 2003. It went on to sell over 2.6 million copies and produced the band’s best-known singles, “Meant to Live” and “Dare You to Move.” Their seventh studio album Hello Hurricane received a Grammy award in 2011 for Best Rock Gospel Album.
According to Jon Foreman, the name “Switchfoot” is a surfing term. “We all love to surf and have been surfing all our lives so to us, the name made sense. To switch your feet means to take a new stance facing the opposite direction. It’s about change and movement, a different way of approaching life and music.”
