Having held their first ever show in Malaysia last weekend, Japanese band [ALEXANDROS] expressed their hope to hold more shows in the Southeast Asian country in future.

“This is our first time here,” said the four-piece rock band. “We would love to come back for more shows.”

Yoohei Kawakami (vocals, guitar), Hiroyuki Isobe (bass, backing vocals), Masaki Shirai (guitar) and Satoyasu Shomura (drums), who debuted as Champagne but later underwent a band name change in 2014, held their first show in Malaysia at KL Live on Saturday evening.
Prior to them rocking the stage, local act FAZZ opened for the J-rock band, hyping up the crowd with their swinging, burlesque-pop tracks.

FAZZ was the opening act for “[ALEXANDROS] Live in Kuala Lumpur 2018”.

[ALEXANDROS] finally took the stage around 9pm. Despite delayed for about an hour from its scheduled opening time, the band was nevertheless all pumped up to perform for their Malaysian fans and the enthusiastic feeling was reciprocated by the eager crowd.

Frontman Yoohei said that Malaysian fans were lucky. The band usually gets about 30 minutes to 40 minutes to perform their set but that evening, they were allocated more than that (their KL performance lasted for about an hour and a half).

said that the only Malay word he knew was “Boleh!”.

A meet and greet event with the VIP ticket holders were held after the show.
