The mid-1990’s saw the birth of his most iconic persona as Fatboy Slim, churning out hits such as “Praise You,” “Weapon of Choice,” “The Rockafeller Skank,” and “Wonderful Night”.
His April 12 show will start at 10:30PM kicking off with a special first act—and it’s bound to be one for the books at Southeast Asia’s largest, first-of-its-kind, state-of-the-art indoor beach club and night club!
