Bangkok, 16 January, 2014 – The premiere show of ‘Muay Thai Live: The Legend Lives’ has made its debut to VIPs and members of the media on 14 January, 2014 at The Stage, a new theatre at the heart of Asiatique The Riverfront – the largest night entertainment, dining, and shopping complex on the bank of the Chao Phraya River, Bangkok.

Inspired by Thailand’s best-known martial art, the ‘Muay Thai Live: The Legend Lives’ becomes the newest spectacular show in the Thai capital.
