Papa Rock Datuk Ramli Sarip gave Allianz Malaysia customers and partners a night to remember when he brought the house down last night at the Allianz Rocks Concert 2018.
Held at Panggung Anniversari, the concert was an exclusive event organised by Allianz Malaysia for its customers and partners.
Local band Ruhh opened the show at 8.45pm and got the crowd amped up with classic rock hits such as Queen’s We Will Rock You and Guns ‘n’ Roses’ November Rain.
The band then played one of Ramli’s classics Kamelia to huge roars from the crowd before the former frontman of Sweet Charity hit the stage himself to finish the song sending the close to 1,800-strong crowd into a frenzy.
“This was truly a night to remember. Seeing this legendary man up on stage, headlining Allianz Rocks Concert 2018 was simply amazing. It was truly a wonderful experience that we got to share with our customers and partners,” said Zakri Khir, Chief Executive Officer of Allianz Malaysia Berhad.
“Ramli inspired a lot of local musicians and this was also the perfect opportunity to give non-mainstream bands such as Ruhh a chance in the spotlight and to share the stage with the legend himself. And who knows, this inspires those in the audience to chase their own rock and roll dreams,” added Zakri.
The 66-year-old Singapore-born rocker went on to belt out eight more of his unforgettable hits including Jikalau Berkasih, Teratai, and Sejuta Wajah.
Ramli who last performed at Panggung Anniversari in the 80’s said: “I appreciate Allianz Malaysia's initiative in returning the glorious moment we had in the 80's to Panggung Anniversari which recalled my memories during the era of Sweet Charity.”
Excited to have played alongside Ramli at the iconic venue, band members of Ruhh added: We hope that everyone enjoyed the show. Big thank you to Allianz Malaysia for bringing us back to the nostalgia of Panggung Anniversari.”
Besides that, concertgoers were also able to participate in a chance to win three signed Allianz Rocks Concert 2018 t-shirts, autographed poster, plus Allianz branded merchandises through an on-ground Facebook contest. The three lucky winners will be announced on 27 November on Allianz Malaysia’s Facebook page at facebook.com/AllianzMalaysia/.
