An updated list of all the live acts and concerts for the year

2019 has been an amazing year so far, with visits from international acts like Kodaline, BTS and Slash already keeping fans upbeat. More acts have been announced since, and to gear you up for a year of nonstop entertainment, here's an updated list of live gigs and concerts here.
 


The Proclaimers (Apr 29)


Chances are that you’ve probably heard the catchy tunes of twin brothers Charlie and Craig Reid multiple times in your life. Celtic rock number "I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)" has made its fair share of cameos in various films throughout the years and has never failed to rile arenas up. Their recognisable Scottish accents will ring loud at the Capitol Theatre this April.

Tickets from $98. More info here.


Mayday Parade (May 1)




Florida-based alt rock band Mayday Parade first debuted A Lesson In Romantics in 2007, an album that later goes on to become a staple among alternative music fans and Warped Tour frequenters. Today, Mayday Parade still manages to stay relevant—a feat rarely accomplished by bands and singers across genres. Here’s a show not to be missed, especially for fans of mid-2000s pop-punk/alternative rock/emo music.
Tickets from $79. More info here.


Troye Sivan (May 3)




It seems like yesterday when we met up with Troye Sivan while he was here for his very first fan-signing session. This time, the "Dance to This" singer will return with his long-awaited, headlining Bloom Asia Tour in Singapore.

Tickets from $98. More info here.


Jason Mraz (May 11)


Singapore just can’t get enough of Jason Mraz, can we? Having performed here recently in Oct 2018, the American singer-songwriter will be stepping onto our sunny island once again with his Good Vibes Tour. Known for his folk-pop sounds and all-around positivity, you’re in for a feel-good night with "Mr A-Z".

Tickets from $98. More info here.


Jeff Chang (May 11)


Dubbed the "Taiwanese Prince of Love Songs”, singer-cum-actor Jeff Chang plans to hit the Singapore Indoor Stadium with nostalgic mandopop charters such as "Gone Too Far" and "Don’t Tell Him". Fans of sentimental Mandarin ballads can catch Jeff this May, as part of his Continuum World Tour.

Tickets from $118. More info here.


Lauv (May 15-16)




As one of the fastest-rising acts on the scene, it’s no wonder tickets to Lauv’s upcoming concert sold out in a flash, and deservedly so. From being the opening act for Ed Sheeran to selling out not just one, but two nights of his own solo show, the pop visionary is certainly one to watch out for.
Tickets are fully sold out. More info here.


Kingdom Hearts Orchestra World of Tres (May 18)




Breaking away from your conventional gigs is the return of the lavish Kingdom Hearts orchestral band and choir, who will be stopping by the Esplanade Concert Hall for an unprecedented night of whimsical harmonies mid-May. The orchestra will play familiar tracks from the immersive role-playing action game Kingdom Hearts series by Disney, and video game-behemoth Square Enix for its 15th year anniversary. Expect to be transported to the lands of various fairytale scenes from the Disney-Final Fantasy crossover through the breathtaking soundtracks, sure to bowl enthusiasts of the franchise over with massive doses of nostalgia.

Tickets from $109. More info here.
 

Jesse McCartney (Jul 14)


Multi-talented, Grammy-winning songwriter and certified Beautiful Soul Jesse McCartney will make his live debut here after 15 long, McCartney-less years. Slated to take on the Gateway Theatre on Jul 14, the popstar will be getting the hearts of both the young and young-at-heart skipping beats. Expect to hear all the classics ("Beautiful Soul", "She's No You"), along with his newer hits "Wasted" and "Better Than You".

Tickets from $108. More info here.


Lany (Aug 10)


No stranger to performing on our shores, it seems like Lany will soon be making their return to Singapore for their Malibu Nights World Tour. The news comes after the release of their latest record Malibu Nights, which is chockfull of synth-pop goodness that we can’t wait to groove along to.

Tickets from $108. More info here.
 

Westlife (Aug 10)
 

It has been 20 years since they first swore it, and two decades later they are still swearing it all over again. Westlife celebrates 20 years of groundbreaking hits with the aptly named The Twenty Tour that will take Singapore and our neighbouring nations by storm. The perennial Irish pop band has a total of 10 studio albums as of current, spanning from the pure babyfaced-pop tunes of Westlife, to the wholesome numbers of Gravity; promising a solid setlist for the upcoming gig.

Tickets from $108. More info here.


The 1975 (Sep 16)
 



The boys are making their highly-anticipated return to Singapore since their last show at Laneway Festival in 2015. As part of their Music for Cars project, this leg of the tour would see The 1975 play not just their current discography but also some new music off their upcoming companion record, Notes on a Conditional Form; which Matt has teased would be released in 2019.

Tickets from $88. More info here.


Singapore F1 Grand Prix (Sep 20-22)


The annual F1 party rolls around once again, with a promising lineup that encompasses the likes of Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Muse, Fatboy Slim, and Cardi B. The 2019 setlist is slightly rock-heavy as compared to previous years, and we’re all for it. As for local talent, Glen Wee who came in forth for reality TV show The Final One, will be joining the international rockstars with hits such as "House of Stone" and "Sound of Clouds".

Shawn Mendes (Oct 4)
 



Canadian heartthrob Shawn Mendes will be back in October, this time as a newly minted Grammy nominee for the gripping ballad "In My Blood", from his latest self-titled album. Two years have flown by since he last paid our shores a visit, and Mendies will have already marked their calendars to hear the 2018-released Shawn Mendes live. Of course, Mendes won't leave fans without performing the smash hits that threw him onto the global radar: "Stitches" from his debut album Handwritten and "Treat You Better" from second album, Illuminate.

Tickets from $88. More info here.
 

Backstreet Boys (Oct 30)

 

Before One Direction and BTS, was a five-piece pop group that arguably led the revolution of the new-age boy band scene. Backstreet Boys—now technically Backstreet Men—announced their return to Singapore in October this year, as part of their international DNA Tour. The tour aims to promote their 10th studio album, including their first Billboard charter in over 10 years, “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart”, while sprinkling in a generous heaping of old-timey fan favourites: the likes of “I Want It That Way” and “As Long As You Love Me”.

Tickets from $168. More info here.


Elton John (Nov/Dec)
 

After half a century of glittery retro shades, outrageous fashion and incredible piano-playing, we received a rather bittersweet announcement from Sir Elton John himself calling fans to gather one last time before leaving the tour bus for good. Exact dates are TBC but you know we’ll be awaiting "Rocket Man"’s last mission.
