EXO shows off their "Power" at sold-out concert in Malaysia

 Performing to a sold-out one-night only show in Malaysia last Saturday was popular South Korean idol group, EXO.

Local EXO-Ls as well as from other countries such as Indonesia, Singapore and Korea flocked Bukit Jalil's Axiata Arena since morning for the K-pop band's concert, "EXO PLANET #4 The ElyXiOn in Kuala Lumpur".

The 10,000-strong crowd brandished their lightsticks once they'd entered the indoor stadium and started chanting the band's name as they waited for the concert to begin.

EXO did not keep their fans waiting long, at just a little after 5, lights flooded the stage and they opened the show with "The Eve", followed by songs from their 2017 album ("The War: The Power of Music"), "Forever" and "Ko Ko Bop".

"Growl" and a dance battle between Xiumin and Baekhyun were performed next. For the latter, the remaining members disappeared off stage to prepare for their next stage.

Complicated is probably one of the words that could be used for their stage setting that followed Kai's solo performance ("I See You"). Impressive is another.

While the VCR continued playing on the big screens, showing EXO as they searched for their 'paradise' (the name of the concert, ElyXiOn, is derived from Elysium, which carries the meaning 'an ideal space habitat of perfect happiness where only the chosen ones are granted entry'), the setup onstage slowly started taking form.

Once the stage was brightly lit again, EXO was now performing in a bar.

From "Call Me Baby" to Suho's solo "Playboy" performance, the band sang and danced to a total of 10 songs in the beautiful bar setting. The tables, chairs and even countertop were seamlessly incorporated into their choreography, each serving as an extra elevated stage for the band to dance on.

Aside from providing a multi-tier stage, the setting also allowed the members to sit down at the tables or counter and take a breather in some of the performances they were not part of. When EXO-CBX performed "Ka-Ching!", only Chen, Baekhyun and Xiumin took center stage while the others rested behind them. It was also the prefect background for D.O. and Chanyeol's "For Life" performance, as it looked as though the members were enjoying a relaxing night out at a swanky bar as they listened to Chanyeol play the piano and D.O. smoothly serenade the crowd with the English version of the song.
