LIVE NEWS: Remember Nizam – A Celebration in Music

Nizam

Pioneering musician. Award-winning filmmaker. All-round loveable guy. The local music, movie and creative scenes were devastated when, on 14 June, influential DIY figure, Abdul Nizam Hamid, unexpectedly passed away from liver, lung and pancreatic cancer. Nizam, as his friends called him, was only 50. Bonded in grief, his friends have come together to organise a special tribute concert and fund- raising commemoration to this singular, inspiring and dearly missed man.

On 22nd July it is the turn of The Sam Willows to expand the boundaries of what a Singapore-English pop act can achieve by playing at The Coliseum, Resort World Sentosa – a venue that can hold 5,000 people, although record label Sony Music expects about 3,000 fans to attend that night.
