His four timeless songs, You Know I Love You (“Tu sais je t’aime”), Umi, Pulanglah, and Anugerah Dari Kegalagan, will enable audiences instantly grasp the significance of this remarkable musician.
At initially, Dato’ Sheikh Abdullah’s branding or commercial name was “Shake.” Together with the well-known actor Bruce Lee, he was the first Asian artist to achieve fame in France, Europe and French-speaking countries, including Canada, to singing in French in 1976.
He recorded his debut song in Malay in 1983, and afterwards adopted the stage name “Dato’ Shake”.
Dato’ Shake gained fame as a well-known international artist based in Paris and was awarded the Chevalier des Arts et Lettre (Knight of the Order of Arts, Letters, and Merits) by the French government for his contribution to promoting the French language and culture throughout Asia.
As his gift to bring Malaysia to the eye of the world through his career in the music industry, His Majesty the Sultan of Johor (Malaysia), the late Sultan Ismail Ibni Almarhum Sultan Ibrahim Al Masyhur bestowed the title of Dato’ on Shake in 1979. Dato’ Shake is a very special person, and his presence has had a high impact on the music industry.
InTour Live Events is pleased to host the Dato’ Shake Zepp KL Concert on 16 December 2023, in recognition of the many souls in Malaysia that want for a melodic voice and to witness this performer of the highest calibre on the international stage.
The spectacular chronological exploration of his musical career will be shown at this evening.
The best songs from his musical career will all be performed, including his well-known and unforgettable Malay and French tunes, which are perennially popular both in Malaysia and abroad.
The Dato’ Shake Zepp KL Concert, according to InTour Live Events, is an event for fans to go back in time with Dato’ Shake’s classics that have been popular since the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s.
Of course, the most recent works—such as Chameleon (2012)—will be a feast for the ears and available to be heard live on December 16, 2023, at a concert put on by InTour Live Events.
Dato’ Shake is a remarkably unique artist. He is unquestionably talented, but more significantly, he is also adaptable. There is no doubting that he is a naturally brilliant man who sings well in Malay, English, and French; he comes close to the term “fusion.” Through his Malay ballads, pop songs, and new world rock songs, fans will experience the nostalgia of the old world. From 1988, when he relocated to Hollywood, California, to 2011, new songs were recorded.
“We are therefore thrilled to host the Dato’ Shake Zepp KL Concert because fans will not only be able to leave with nostalgia through his Malay songs but will also be fascinated by the pop and rock genres in French and English that make him a renowned entertainer.
Furthermore, we at InTour Live Events and iMe Entertainment Group are hopeful that the Dato’ Shake Zepp KL Concert will allay fans’ craving for the adored legend. Fans will see a top-notch performance by the renowned Parisian musicians who have supported Dato’ Shake consistently throughout his career,” said Bonor Seen, Managing Director of InTour Live Events.
Dato’ Shake has been planning his dream trip back to his beloved homeland, Malaysia, to meet his fans here since 2020.
The plan, which was postponed because of the pandemic, will, however, soon come to pass when InTour Live Events and iMe Entertainment Group suggest that the legend, who now calls Paris, France home, hold a concert.
Yes, the concert with the musical concept is a magical moment for Dato’ Shake with his stage charismatic costume, especially his amazing vocals. This is from Dato’ Shake’s message to his fans.
“The promise will be kept for the fans who still love me. In 2020, I plan to do a big tour all over Malaysia and Asia! Unfortunately, the pandemic ruined everyone’s plans, including mine! We entertainers decided to move forward with the help and love of God and the people. We look forward to seeing you soon at Zepp KL! I will return to Malaysia for the Dato’ Shake Zepp KL Concert on 16 December 2023. See you all later! I can’t wait to perform at Zepp KL because there are many good reviews about Zepp as one of the best stages,” he said excitedly.
He will perform his original songs in three languages, namely French, English, and Malay, to recreate the musical journey of his career from 1976 to 2023 and revive the musical nostalgia of the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s as well as the present.
On 16 December 2023, at 8.30 p.m., this international artist will perform for fans at the Dato’ Shake Zepp KL performance for 90 minutes. Prices for concerts range from RM358.
