Live in Genting Highlands - Arena of Stars Stadium
Malaysia 16th October 2004
Needless to say, it was a very nice concert and performance. However the sound system engineers played them too loud. Both my ears feel extreme pain around one (1) hour into the concert. After which I have to use my fingers to shut my ears to let it rest between 10 to 20 seconds in order to release the three (3) bones behind the ear drum, which release them from permanent protection mode (saturation) so that I can listen to the high frequencies in more details.

I estimate the sound pressure level exceeded human's threshold, which is around 120dB SPL. The concert was playing well over 130dB SPL. And bass (low frequency) could have reached 140dB SPL. Judging from the vibration at my pants near my leg near & shoe.
