Make a date with Hoobastank Californian rock band Hoobastank will make a stop in Kuala Lumpur as part of its The Reason Tour 2004. The band currently on tour in the United States is slated to perform at The Bukit Kiara Equestrian Indoor Arena on Aug 15 at 8pm. Hoobastank, comprising Doug Robb, Chris Hesse, Markku Lappalainen and Dan Estrin, recently released its second album The Reason, which went platinum and hit the No.4 spot on the US Billboard Top 200. The event is organised by Absolute Entertainment Sdn Bhd, event organisers of the recent Sarah Brightman concert at Stadium Negara. The band performed here in 2002. Tickets for the concert are priced at RM120 and are available from www.axcess.com.my or 03-7491 9999. Tickets go on sale on July 26. Contributed by Kelvina The Review: Let's put it this way. Hoobastank Rocked Big Time!! We have a new found respect for the group who poured their hearts out to give us a super pumped and energetic show that even left the security guards jumpin along with the crowd. Even the opening acts were that good. The bad? Unsupportive others who didn't show up for a show worth every cent to those who did. You just had to be there. Comparable in quality to Linkin Park and Incubus. Not much of a rock fan myself but definitely will remember the concert! Hoooooooooooobaastank!!! Jump!! Jump!! We want more..
