COME Aug 18, staff members of the cream of advertising, media and other related agencies will rummage through their closets for leather jackets, Freddie Mercury wigs and anything else that might be associated with a rock star.
Inspired by the legendary rock band Queen, the Malaysian Advertisers Association (MAA) has chosen ‘We Will Rock You’ as the theme for its upcoming annual ball at the Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur. The Adball, an event that has been held for more than 20 years, brings media owners, advertisers, advertising and public relations agencies, media specialists and supporting industries together.
Adball organising committee chairman Chow Wei Hang said the Adball was a huge party to celebrate the achievements of people in those industries.
“It is going to be a night of fun as we have prepared a variety of entertaining programmes for the attendees whom I expect to show up in their best rock star outfits,” he said.
The highlight of Adball will be the “Battle of the Bands” in which rock bands (comprising staff members of each participating company) face one another in a singing competition, judged by local music artistes.
Local act Deja Voodoo Spells will be providing entertainment throughout the night, performing Queen’s numbers with a special guest artist yet to be revealed.
One hundred tables are available at the Adball; of these, 20 are premiums, priced at RM3,000 each, while the rest are priced at RM2,500 per table.
