In conjunction with 50 years of independence and Visit Malaysia Year 2007 the Malaysian Armed Forces (MAF) in collaboration with the Ministry of Tourism will co-host the KL International Tattoo Show. This tattoo will be an evening performance of military band music and cultural acts from across the world. The event will be held at the Merdeka Stadium, the birth place of our nation's independence.

Merdeka Stadium was initially erected for Malaysia's declaration of independence on 31 August 1957. It was here on 31 August, 1957 that power was transferred from the British Empire to the newly independent Malayan government. The stadium is an important part of Malaysia's history and in February 2003, Merdeka Stadium was named a national heritage building.

The KL International Tattoo Show 2007 will run on 3 consecutive evenings, commencing from 7 September 2007. The evening will showcase military bands from Jordan, Brunei, France, India, United States, the Republic of the Philippines, the Republic of Singapore, the Kingdom of Thailand, Korea, the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, pipes and drums from the United Kingdom and a Maori cultural group from New Zealand.

The military band from the Malaysian Armed Forces and Royal Malaysian Police, the 'Wira Kris' from the Royal Malaysian Army, the silent drill from the Royal Malaysian Navy and the rhythmic gymnastics from the Royal Malaysian Air Force will be leading the performances on the three nights. The highlight of the show will be a Grand Finale by the massed bands of all participants combining to perform a specially arranged musical score with a synchronised fireworks display which should make it a night to remember
