MTV World Stage Malaysia 2015 , one of the biggest Southeast Asian music nights of the year, was punctuated with amazing MTV moments for fans. The stellar line-up of performers Jason Derulo, Carly Rae Jepsen, Apink, SEKAI NO OWARI and Malaysia’s #MostWanted local act, Stacy, delivered explosive performances to a live audience of nearly 20,000 fans gathered at Surf Beach, Sunway Lagoon on Saturday night, 12 September 2015.
Recorded live for global telecast, the one-night only outdoor event, which is in its seventh year, brings multi-genre talents from around the world onto a single stage. The event hashtag #worldstagemy top trended in Malaysia and trended in Singapore, with an estimate of over 100 million social impressions within a day (Sysomos).
Kicking off the performance with “ANTI-HERO,” SEKAI NO OWARI made their MTV World Stage debut to thousands of fans, excited to see them perform for the first time in Southeast Asia. The Japanese band’s third track, “Death Disco”, was both a musical and visual sensation for fans, with mesmerizing 3D laser orbs lighting the stage in tandem to the band’s unique musical expression. Last night, SEKAI NO OWARI transported fans to another world with an ethereal rendition of “SOS”. For “Dragon Night”, the last song of their five-track set, the band upped the ante with its pianist playing an accordion and adding a banjo to their unique instrumental mix.
