987FM DJ Rozz walked out of her own radio show

By spcnet.tv on March 31st, 2010 | Chinese Entertainment, newsfeed

It appears that they have achieved exactly what their boss had set them out to do – “spice up the evening show”. Barely two days into the newly set-up Shan, Rozz & Ris show, and drama unfolded last evening, when Rozz stomped off her own radio show, seemingly furious over her co-host, Ris Low.

It seemed like Ris not only showed up two hours late on her first day [citing the slip-up over military time 1600hrs as 6pm], she also ended her shift two hours earlier on her second day. Too much of a coincidence you think?

The brouhaha, as heard over the airwaves, started off with Rozz talking about “I know people think that I shouldn’t let emotions get in the way of work but I’m just like that” and “I’ve decided to leave the show because at least the angry one is not here.”

Apparently, before she made her sudden exit, Rozz had sounded rather unhappy when she spoke about Ris’s comment to reporters [on her 1st day at work] of her seemingly frostiness toward the ex-beauty queen.

According to Shan, who told his listeners that all efforts to reach Rozz through phonecalls and text messages were unsuccessful. During the “Muttons to Midnight Show” hosted by Justin and Vernon, the radio DJs were also heard discussing about the drama and spoke about Rozz sending a text message to her boss, requesting for a transfer.

Spotted on another 987FM radio DJ, Desiree Lai’s twitter page, she posted: “So Ris left early. Roz was pissed off. She left b4 show ended. Roz wants a transfer. Tom its juz Shan & Ris. Roz nw refuses 2 pick up fone.”

Question remains now, if this is for real or just another publicity stunt. Creative or outrageous – we’ll just have to wait and see. Either way it’s got everyone talking and all the media buzzing did spice up their evening show after all.

Mayday concert relocated to National Stadium Singapore

By spcnet.tv on March 31st, 2010 | Chinese Entertainment, newsfeed

At a press conference held in Beijing a few days ago, the quintet announced a brand-new upcoming concert tour titled as ‘DNA Mayday World Tour [2010 Limited Edition].’ Apart from performing in Asia, the band will also throw the same concert in various states in Australia and America.

A regular fixture in the local concert scene, Taiwanese rock band Mayday started promoting their DNA World Tour concert last May in Hong Kong. Since then, they have thrown close to 30 shows and have hopped to 10 different cities all over the world.

With 90% of tickets sold for the upcoming DNA MAYDAY 2010 World Tour concert [Limited Edition] in Singapore, concert organizers decided to shift the concert venue from the originally-slated Padang Stadium to the National Stadium, a much bigger location.

The decision to relocate Mayday’s April 17 concert to the National Stadium came about due to multiple factors. To constantly up their game and present a more wholesome performance, the perfectionist group had high requests and standards for the stage, lighting and sound effects.

With 90% of tickets sold, the lack of space was the main driving force behind the concert organizers’ decision to move from Padang to the National Stadium. The concert organizers shared that the National Stadium committee was very supportive and gave Mayday the green light in use of their venue.

Rock records have ensured that the concert’s seating arrangements will not be affected by this change. They shared that concertgoers holding onto the original ticket stubs for Mayday’s concert at the Padang Stadium ticket stubs will have no problems entering the National Stadium venue.

For further questions, please call 6286 5066.

Concert details:
Date: April 17, 7,30pm
Location: National Stadium, Singapore
Ticket prices: $88, $118, $138, $168 (Not inclusive of $3 sistic booking fee)
