In their latest stage extravaganza, the whole gang—Stevie, Casey, Tim and newest member Dayen—will take you on a fantastical journey filled with magic, music and laughs. Come on, where’s that cute, excitable kid inside you?

Friday 14th–Sunday 16th September
UK's second biggest newly manufactured boy band—after One Direction—never ceases to make headlines of the "oh no, they didn't" kind. They've called Christina Aguilera "rude" and "a total [rhymes with beach]" for ignoring them backstage after their appearance on The Voice. They've implied that Britney Spears is boring and claimed that her bouncer made them face a wall as she walked by. And they recently proclaimed their new single, I Found You, to be not as "stereotypical" as any song by One Direction. Love them or hate them, they've certainly caught everyone's attention. Their first Malaysian concert will be supported by Click Five frontman Kyle Patrick. Click here to meet them in person!
