Papa Rock Datuk Ramli Sarip and local band Ruhh put on an unforgettable show at Allianz Rocks in KK at Oceanus Waterfront Mall last night.
Ruhh, made up of talented local musicians with a deep appreciation of classic rock opened the show at 8.25pm and got the crowd amped up with covers of Guns ‘n’ Roses’ November Rain, Deep Purple’s Burn and a Queen medley complete with the stadium anthem We Will Rock You.
Ramli sent the 800-strong crowd into a frenzy when he came on stage. The former frontman of Sweet Charity, well-known for his folk-inspired music and delightfully raspy vocals went on to perform hits such as Sejuta Wajah, Jikalau Berkasih and Kamelia.
Allianz Malaysia Berhad’s Chief Executive Officer Zakri Khir was thrilled to bring to concert over to Kota Kinabalu following the filled-out 1,800 capacity at Allianz Rocks Concert in Kuala Lumpur last November.
“Being in Peninsular Malaysia, very often we are guilty of forgetting our fellow Malaysians in East Malaysia. The first Allianz Rocks was truly a wonderful experience that we got to share with our customers and partners. That is why we are here tonight, to bring this concert to you and to show the people of Sabah a good time. So if the first Allianz Rocks was an appetiser, last night was the main course,” said Zakri.
“After witnessing it again last night, I am sure many will agree that Datuk Ramli’s showmanship is second to none and Ruhh proved they could hang in there with one of the greatest rockers of all time. Thank you Kota Kinabalu for a coming out and rocking it with us,” added Zakri.
Besides that, concertgoers were also able to participate in an on-ground Social Media contest (Facebook and Instagram) for a chance to win Allianz Rocks KK Concert t-shirts, concert poster, and exclusive Allianz-branded merchandises. The 10 lucky winners will be announced on Allianz Malaysia’s Facebook page at facebook.com/AllianzMalaysia/ and Instagram page at instagram.com/allianzmalaysia/ on on 4 March 2019.
