    Back To The Sixties With The Definitive Rat Pack

    The Definitive Rat Pack was a show that was set to impress. On a cool Tuesday night, the Grand Ballroom of One Farrer Hotel & Spa was buzzing with the hum of excited concertgoers, eager to have their fill of the iconic trio that is Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Sammy Davies Junior. Starring Stephen Triffitt, Mark Adams and George Daniel Long, they put up a show that was at once wistful as it was nostalgic, with a lively repertoire that brought the audience back to the romance, jolliness and charisma of the sixties. Ushered into the ballroom, one was…

    Concert Review: PVRIS Made Singaporeans Happy and Fortunate Souls

    Playing for the very first time in Singapore and at an intimate setting at Hard Rock Cafe at Cuscaden, I didn’t think I was ready for a night full of surprises and pure blithe. Upon receiving my complimentary choice of Cola as I entered the concert venue, I was glad that arriving 30 minutes before the expected starting time did not obstruct my view of the stage. By the time PVRIS came on stage, the crowd was expectantly raring to go with screams of exhilaration; comprised of teenagers and young adults, it is hardly surprising of the demographics of PVRIS’…

    As one of the most highly anticipated annual music festivals held in Singapore, it was plain to see that Ultra Music Festival 2018 remained an eminence on the music scene last weekend.

Upon entering the festival grounds at Bayfront Avenue,…

  • Concert Review: Kehlani Served Us Sweet, Sexy, and Savage All At Once

    Kehlani made her highly-anticipated Singapore debut last Wednesday on 23 May for the very first time. Organised by LAMC Productions, the concert was held at [email protected], which is an indoor venue that was air-conditioned and made for a perfect stomping ground to contain the excitement exuded from every single attendee. The crowd consisted mostly of millennials and young adults, who seemed to be mostly between 15 to 25 years of age, with some of them who are just slightly older than that. As was heard through the grapevine (that was the crowd), some had stood in line since 10 in…

  • Fall Out Boy Concert Review: It Was Manic, Indeed

    I’ve never been much of a concert-goer. The crowds, the screaming, the long queues, all that put me off from the moshing experience. But when my friend asked if I wanted to attend the Fall Out Boy Mania Tour concert, how could I refuse? This year’s venue was [email protected], a modest indoor event hall in the heart of Jurong East, and although it’s not as picturesque as Fort Canning for their previous Save Rock & Roll Tour here almost 5 years ago, the energy presented by Fall Out Boy themselves erupted from the stage and dominated the evening. A 30-second…

  • The Chainsmokers Dazzle With A Visual Feast & Homage To Their Past

    Pyrotechnics? Check. Confetti storms? Check. Smoke effects? Check. A’ight, The Chainsmokers’ set is ready to roll. The Chainsmokers, consisting of Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart, were responsible for chart-topping pop hits such as Closer, Don’t Let Me Down, and Paris. But how would it feel like to be at the moshpit and watch them perform live? I was not expecting my night to turn out… something just like this. The duo played a private event at the Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre on March 28th, and boy, were their audience in for a visual treat. Mastercards Singapore did…

    James Blunt Hits The Stage With Nostalgic Hits & Self-Deprecating Humour At The Afterlove Asia Tour 2018

    “I know you’ve got seats and you’re gonna treat this like you’re in a cinema, but you are going to find out later that the seats are for your handbags,” the 44-year-old English singer assured confidently as he addressed the 7,000-strong crowd last Friday, 23 March.
