It’s been a long time coming but there was no doubt fans were beyond thrilled when news broke that former Disney star and current pop music darling, Selena Gomez, would finally be making her way to Malaysia for her first ever solo concert at Stadium Melawati on 25 July.
The doll-faced superstar made a name for herself on Disney’s Wizards of Waverley Place before debuting into the mainstream music scene as Selena and the Scene, releasing three albums and spawning the catchy hits Naturally, A Year Without Rain and Love You Like A Love Song.
Adored for her girl-next-door image and soft, sultry vocals, the young singer surprised everyone when she left her label to pursue an edgier, more mature sound in her first solo project. Released in 2013, the Stars Dance record introduced Selena to a larger fan base, and had everyone grooving to the addictive EDM flavoured singles which quickly became favourites at dance clubs worldwide.
Although she was scheduled to make her appearance in Malaysia that year for the Stars Dance tour, the concert was eventually cancelled due to personal reasons. Fast forward one year, and the even edgier Revival album is released, debuting at the number one spot on the US Billboard Chart. Her steamy video for lead single Good For You proved that she had successfully transitioned from Disney tween queen to global pop icon.
Promising dazzling entertainment filled with elaborate costume changes, creative set designs and plenty of back-up dancers, the concert will be set on an extended stage and feature songs from the latest record, as well as updated versions of old hits.
We doubt you will be able to keep your ‘hands to yourself’ as you cheer on this stunning pop star, so don’t miss out Selenators!
