US nu metal band Issues to play gig at Bangkok nightclub
Heavy metal music fans will have the chance of seeing cult US band Issues when they stop over in Bangkok next month. The nu metal band will play at the city’s Hollywood Awards Nightclub on the 8 August and are due on stage at 20:00.
Issues hail from Georgia and combine traditional heavy metal with electro, pop, and rhythm and blues to produce a unique sound guaranteed to please even the most discerning of music fans. The set list for the band’s performances usually includes the likes of Blue Wall, Hooligans and Never Lose Your Flames.
Issues are likely to have a few fans in Bangkok as they played at the Mellow Yello club in 2014. The latest Bangkok gig is part of an Asian tour which includes several dates in Japan, South Korea, China and Taiwan. The concert in Bangkok is the only one in Southeast Asia.
Advance tickets are available from Gram Siam Paragon or on the door on the night at the Hollywood Awards. Reaching the club is not difficult as the 12GO ASIA resident travel experts in Bangkok say it is less than 10 minutes on foot from the north exit of Phra Ram 9 MRT Metro Station.
Tourism authorities in Thailand say August was a bumper month for international tourist arrivals. Figures just released show 3.1 million tourists visited in the traditional low-season month and the number was almost 10 per cent higher than for the same month in 2016.
Last Friday saw the maiden voyage of a flight service linking the Malaysian capital city and one of the most popular seaside towns in Vietnam. When AirAsia flight AK2014 took off from Kuala Lumpur it marked the inauguration of the first direct flight connection between Malaysia and Nha Trang.
