6 unmissable concerts happening soon in Singapore

The first half of the year isn’t over yet and there are so many big names in music coming down. They’re all happening pretty soon, so book now. Check them out while you still can.

Bon Iver (Feb 26)

His first album For Emma, Forever Ago was called one of the best break-up albums by Rolling Stone. The one-man band, best known for “Skinny Love”, is sure to melt your heart with ethereal tunes, synthesizers and hits like “Holocene,” “Towers” and “Calgary.” The Star Theatre, $68-148.

Madonna (Feb 28)

Hold on to your hearts, fishnets and cassette tape collections, because Madonna is finally performing in Singapore, after the Girlie Show fiasco back in 1993. The Rebel Heart World Tour is a one-night only concert and has an R18 rating. Also, more category four seats were announced, so you should grab them while they are still available. National Stadium. $108-1,288.


Singjazz Festival (Mar 4)
