The New Year’s Eve dinner-and-dance party featuring superstar Anita Sarawak at JW Marriott Hotel Kuala Lumpur has been cancelled.
Its public relations officer, Azimy Wan Ahmad, said the "Anita — Laid Bare" event to usher in the New Year had to be called off as most of Anita’s fans would be out of town to celebrate Hari Raya Haji, which also falls on Dec 31.
"Many fans have been calling the hotel asking for the show to be postponed because they are either overseas vacationing or back in their hometowns celebrating Hari Raya Haji," he said.
However, he said, Anita would still perform at Starhill Gallery’s Shook! for the 2007 countdown party."Initially, Anita was to perform a 90-minute show at the hotel’s Mayang Sari Grand Ballroom before joining other revellers at the 2007 countdown party at Shook!"
As the dinner show was now scrapped, he said Anita would be doing only the one at Shook!, where she would sing three songs to welcome the New Year.
Anita could not be reached for comments as she is in Genting Highlands preparing for the "Four Asian Divas — Christmas Concert" to be held at the Genting International Showroom and Arena of Stars.
At the show, Anita will be sharing the stage with three Hong Kong divas, namely Francis Yip, Maria Cordero and Elisa Chan
