There were fans who came from as far as Kulim, Singapore and also Chennai who attended the concert and made it a big success.
The main concert organizer, Pitch Perfect, had the brilliant concept to reminisce the good old days of bringing in these legendary bands. Return of the Legends concert marked the first live concert of Malaysian Indian local artists since the lifting of the pandemic. The director of Pitch Perfect, Mogethen Gowrisan, said that it would be a good start to host a concert outside of the capital city, and that it should begin from the southern end of Peninsular Malaysia as many concerts were hosted in the country’s capital city.
Yogi B & Natchatra are one of the first Tamil Hip-hop bands recognized worldwide that has also rapped in Kollywood movies. Lock Up, is another Malaysian Indian band that has won multiple awards and recognition. Kashmir Stone and band are Malaysia’s mid-90’s remarkable Tamil rock band that grasps many different ethnicities with their music and instruments.

A day prior to the performance, Pitch Perfect made an official announcement on their social media that there will be an additional surprise for the concert goers. The organizer revealed and decided to bring in another big time Malaysian Indian legend, Darkkey Nagaraja and Elan. These two legends stunned the crowd with their most celebrated songs as the opening act of the concert.
