Following the phenomenal success of the Taiwanese group F4, a new iconic group has been sweeping fans off their feet around Asia.
Fahrenheit, comprising Aaron Yan, Wu Zun, Calvin Chen and Jiro Wang, is currently one of the hottest Chinese acts in the entertainment scene and is known as the ‘super boy band of the new millennium’.
The boys released their self-titled debut album in September 2006, and have been enjoying a roller-coaster ride to stardom ever since, with award-winning albums, highly-rated television drama series, multi-million endorsements and upcoming movies.
They were the first new foreign boy band to win bronze (third placing) for Best Group at the Hong Kong TVB8 Awards and quickly conquered even the non-mainstream Chinese territories such as Indonesia, Thailand, Japan and Korea.
Fahrenheit became the second Taiwanese boy band, after its predecessors F4, to hold a concert in Indonesia with only just one album released. The boys have also held mini concerts in Medan, North Sumatra and in Hong Kong And even fans from as far away as North America and Europe are sitting up and taking notice.
Last year, Fahrenheit held two concerts, one in Hong Kong and the other in Guangzhou and now, they are coming to Malaysia.
Fahrenheit’s Fantasy World Tour Live in Malaysia 2008 is scheduled to kick off on Nov 15, 2008 at Stadium Nasional Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur. Organised by Big Events, a ticket pre-sale event will be held at Sungai Wang Plaza, Kuala Lumpur tomorrow.
Fans who buy tickets within the first three hours (1pm to 3pm) stand the chance to win a 3-day, 2-night trip to Hongkong in a lucky draw.
In addition, there will also be interactive games played on stage with concert tickets and other exciting prizes to be won.
A radio station (988), would also be running contests, whereby prizes include concert tickets and the chance to meet the boys in person as well as a fully-paid trip to Hongkong to watch Fahrenheit’s concert there scheduled for Sept 26 and 27.
Fans attending Fahrenheit’s Malaysian concert, which will showcase their individual talents as well as in a group, can expect to be blown away as fun, fun and more fun are promised by the energetic foursome.
After the Malaysian date, Fahrenheit will commence its tour to Singapore before continuing to China, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, Thailand and Indonesia.
