KUALA LUMPUR: After three near sold-out editions, the popular Golden Oldies show makes a timely return with Cabaret Series: Yesterday Once More 4 at KLPAC’s Pentas 2 here from Feb 8 to 12.
Expect to hear some of the most-loved classics by a selection of the greatest crooners and soul singers of all time, such as Joni Mitchell, Louis Armstrong, Shirley Bassey, Nat King Cole, Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin and the King of Roll, Elvis Presley.
“After truncating the programme of the earlier editions due to Covid-19 restrictions, Yesterday Once More 4 is finally reverting to its full 90-minute programme which means more good songs and more good times for our fans.
“While the previous instalments focused on artistes popular in the 40s to the 60s, this time around we will be showcasing more names from the late 70s,” said the show’s co-director Ian Chow in a recent statement.
“Yesterday Once More 4 welcomes back singers like Joel Wong, Omar Ali, Phraveen Arikiah and Rachel Liu but we are also showcasing two new vocalists Angie Cheah and Kirthana Kuhendran, gems we uncovered from open auditions which is part of our commitment to be on the lookout for fresh faces and new blood.
“It will certainly add an interesting twist to our upcoming edition,” he said.
Sharing the director’s seat is Omar Ali who is also performing and the vocalists will be backed by a four-member live band featuring keyboardist and music director Jacqueline Teng, lead guitarist Jeremy James Kong, bassist Dishon Lau and percussionist Alex Lee.
For one-night only on Feb 11, KLPAC is offering a special Valentine’s Day package with a full evening’s programme planned out for you and your date.
