RE-Cap / RE-Post of Switchfoot Press Conference

(Blog Update For 1st February 2008 - Press Conference of Switchfoot LIVE in KL)

PETALING JAYA: They were really hungry, they haven't taken their first meal of the day (now @ 5pm in the evening), they just arrived from a long flight down to KLIA, they touched down and came straight to the press conference... WHO ARE THEY???

SWITCHFOOT didn't want to make the members of the media wait for them, they sacrificed all of the above for YOU malaysia!!! The Grammy-nominated band has finally arrived at our world class airport and came for a press conference with the members of the media here in Petaling Jaya this late afternoon.

Switchfoot is only here for a one night only performance at KLCC Convention Center, they might be performing their big hits such as "Meant To Live","Dare You To Move","Only Hope" and "You". With their release of their album "Oh! Gravity" and now turned into an "Independent Band"...they are brought down to Kuala Lumpur by OneArmed Productions (which is run by Weng Ming of LoveMeButch).

All you Pop-rock fans must not MISS THIS!!! The first event of its kind this year with 2 local bands performing on stage; Altered Frequency and LoveMeButch. Tickets are selling fast... get it today (pre-event sale) for RM120 (excluding RM3 Axcess ticket fee) or tomorrow at the door RM140 (exclusing RM3 Axcess ticket fee).

The experience was awesome just now getting to meet witch Switchfoot. It wasn't my first meet with International bands...(i was at the MTV Asia Awards at Singapore interviewing artists there...that was awesome too), Joshua's second time interviewing international bands (his first was Click 5 if i am not mistaken), it was Jon's first as he was helping me taking some photos so that i can post it up on my show web page. Jack wasn't able to join us as he was a bit busy this afternoon... but oh well all in all it was a great PC. This really reminds me of those days back then when Joshua and Jack was still interning at Xfresh when we used to go to all the PC's together and get a whole lot of FREEBIES!!!

Last but not least, was at the press conference this afternoon with Jon (helping me with the photographs) and Joshua who was representing The Sun (Newspaper). So now you know who to look out for tomorrow at the Concert!!! We'll be there to do the coverage for my radio show... look out for us!!! we won't eat you... :P

Aiyoo...what are we doing here la??? Kay-poh...only! Actually... no la, i was there to get infos for my radio show and pictures to be uploaded to my radio show. Joshua was representing TheSun and Jon helping me taking photos!

Switchfoot is a bit like chipsmore cookies... sekejap ada, sekejap takder.. mwahah!!! (now you see, now you don't!!!).

All the band members together with Weng Ming of LoveMeButch.

The PC was organised by 8TV, i used to work there, my colleagues from 8TV invites us to come over...

This guys LOVES to surf, be sure to find them at Sunway Lagoon Surf Pool one of these days...

Malaysian Media has loads of questions to ask... this was by far one of the longest PRESS CONFERENCES i've ever been to (for an international artist).

This guy's t-shirt is so cool!!! "i am lowercase people"... HAHAHAHA...!!! Let's go print one of those!

My friend TL (former colleague from 8TV) is now working for Channel V and was interviewing SWITCHFOOT here!!! Cameraman is Ray, nice meeting u man!

Switchfoot, although they haven't had their first meal of the day... they still stand up and answered to each questions they were asked of today! Kudos to Switchfoot!

Group photo of Switchfoot with Joshua... aikks! Have to get my photo from Jon!!!

One is from Astro, the other from NTV7 - we met in 2003 back at JW Marriott during a press conference, then he was working for NST's Youthquake. Friendship lasts...thx Matthew! See ya tomorrow.

L-R: Ray, Amanda, TL and Me... 3 different companies... 3 different friends - the world is so small, apparently we all know each other! The best thing about working in the media industry.

Amanda and Me... one of my closest friends! She's been busy lately... but hey we catch up!!!

He is a surfer dude... he rawksss!!! Surf pool at Sunway Lagoon here he comes!

Hey Shaz!! Looks like you and the guys had a hell lot of fun! How many of the media showed up, other than the mugshots here? A lot?

PS: Aha! I see some folks in the audience with camera cellphones. Now I see that's allowed, I shall think of an evil of how to take advantage of this. Someday... (hehehehe!)

Hey I know you! You're one of the photographers there at the Switchfoot concert. In fact, I am in the photo of the crowd you've taken. Hint: the front row and not looking at the camera.

Anyways thanks for dropping by my blog :)
