WAS IT ALL A DREAM WITH NORAH JONES? 

Treading on partially wet grounds for my first concert-going experience at the west side of Singapore, The Star Performing Arts Centre served as a blooming fresh outlet for events of sorts. Despite the grandeur of the new environs, it was let down somewhat by the spectacle of snaking (really year of the snake, isn’t it?) queue lines at the ticketing counter .

JOE BONAMASSA – LIVE IN SINGAPORE [REVIEW]

When I was young(er), “guitar hero” did not refer to a (dumb) video game where you push buttons on a fake guitar but to a guitarist who captured your imagination with his wizardry on his chosen instrument. My guitar heroes would have to include the likes of Pete Townshend, Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Neil Young and #1 man, Dave Gilmour. Sadly, those heady days are long gone.

JAMES BLUNT – LIVE IN SINGAPORE

(Press release)

Singapore, 17 June 2011:     English singer and songwriter James Blunt will play at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on 11th August.  After two albums, two world tours and 18 million records sold, the award winning artist is back on tour to support his third album Some Kind of Trouble. He last performed in Singapore in 2008.

Blunt, 37, is a former British cavalry captain who served under NATO in Kosovo in 1999, commanding a tank battalion. His music made him famous in 2005, when his debut album Back to Bedlam produced the hit singles ‘Goodbye My Lover’ and ‘You’re Beautiful’. Blunt’s follow-up, All the Lost Souls in 2007 continued his success with songs like ‘1973’ and ‘Same Mistake’.

He has received numerous awards and accolades including two Brit Awards, two World Music Awards, two MTV Video Music Awards, an MTV European Music Award and five Grammy nominations.

Blunt’s previous efforts were more melancholic, having written the materials alone on acoustic guitar. With his new album, Some Kind Of Trouble released in 2010, Blunt recorded with an electric guitar and collaborated with other musicians, which reflects the upbeat and rocking new sounds.

“The second album was quite introverted. It was about perception. But these new songs are not about fame and celebrity – they’re about reality,” Blunt says. “I’ve been hanging out with my friends, writing songs about the world we live in, and where we want to go.”

Despite the serious and sensitive image he is portrayed, Blunt is known to bring an energetic concert with his quality musicianship. He will keep fans rapt until the lights go out. As much as he is passionate about making new music, for Blunt, the ultimate joy comes from performing and sharing them with an audience.

“Put the album out and get me on tour,” he says. “We’re going to have the time of our lives playing these songs.”

SUEDE – LIVE IN SINGAPORE

(Press release)

Singapore, 17 June 2011:     Britpop pioneers, Suede are set to perform at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on Wednesday, August 3rd.  Reunited in 2010, the English alternative rockers have since embarked on a series of concerts, and released their greatest hits compilation, The Best of Suede.

Suede are Brett Anderson, Mat Osman, Simon Gilbert, Richard Oakes and Neil Codling. The band have achieved three number 1 albums, including their debut Suede, which also won the Mercury Prize in 1993. In 2003, after five albums, Suede disbanded.

Suede reformed at the beginning of 2010 for a Teenage Cancer Trust gig at the Royal Albert Hall, and due to the sheer joy of playing together again, a brief tour in Europe soon followed.

Later in the year, they released Best of Suede, a two CD compilation of their greatest hits which feature songs such as The Beautiful Ones, Saturday Night, Wild Ones.

“It’s the complete audio history of a band and, like any band of interest, it’s flawed, strange and sometimes beautiful,” Anderson says of the album.

Suede last performed in Singapore in 2003.  Fans hooked on Suede can expect an amazing, nostalgic show with a hit laden set, reminiscent of the nineties definitive years.
