A1 returns to Singapore this October, this time with their original lineup

What a blast from the past, guys. The age of boy bands may be over, but it won’t stop the legendary ones from the ‘90s to the early noughties from coming back. We’ve seen Backstreet Boys return to Singapore twice within three years and Westlife back in 2011, with Boyzone coming up next. And hopping on the nostalgia bandwagon once again is British-Norwegian pop group A1, who are reuniting for their 20th anniversary with the full original lineup, including Paul Marazzi who left in 2002. They’ll be here to perform at MES Theatre on Oct 20

They were last here two years ago as a trio, performing their greatest hits at The Star Theatre. This tour, however, will be the only time you’ll see A1 together as a quartet once again. In their heyday, they recorded three best-selling albums and a Greatest Hits project (1998-2003) and sold millions in the UK, Europe and Asia. They also bagged the highly sought-after Brit Award for British Breakthrough Act in 2001. Unleash the teen in you and belt to hits like “Same Old Brand New You”, “Caught In The Middle”, “Like A Rose” and more. 

Fun fact: they were one of the few artists who shot a music video in Singapore, for “No More”, a single for their sophomore album The A List. Filmed in 2001, they shot in places like the former Tang Dynasty Village theme park in Taman Jurong, on boats off our coast, the shipping yard (where they had an action sequence), shipping containers and against Singapore’s old skyline before Marina Bay Sands was even built.
