More acts have been announced since, and to gear you up for another year of non-stop entertainment, here's an updated list of live gigs and concerts to come.


Singapore F1 Grand Prix (Sep 20-22)


The annual F1 party rolls around once again, with a promising line-up that encompasses the likes of Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Muse, Fatboy Slim, and Gwen Stefani. 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 fourth for reality TV show The Final One will be joining the international rockstars with hits such as "House of Stone" and "Sound of Clouds".

Tickets from $98. More info here.
 

Andy Lau (Sep 25-28)
 

Hong Kong’s Heavenly King may be 57 but he still has what it takes to make the ladies swoon. Andy Lau makes his grand return to appease the canto-pop oldies fanclub after 11 years for the My Love Andy Lau World Tour. But don’t take our word for it—get your hands on the tickets before they run out.

Tickets start from $168. More info here.

 

Mono (Sep 27)

 

For a refreshing change of pace, look to Tokyo-based four-piece instrumental rock outfit Mono for their pit stop by The Pavilion @ Far East Plaza. The band will be performing hits from a whopping three decade-worth of tracks, including some from their recent Nowhere Here Now.

Tickets start from $80. More info here.

 

Shawn Mendes (Oct 4)
 

Canadian heartthrob Shawn Mendes will be back in October, and this time, as a newly-minted Grammy nominee for the gripping ballad "In My Blood", from his latest eponymous album. Two years have flown by since he last paid our shores a visit, and Mendies would have already marked their calendars to hear the 2018-released Shawn Mendes album 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 Illuminate.

Tickets from $88. More info here.

 

Day6 (Oct 5)

 

In the new age of flashy K-pop boy bands with neon-coloured hair, Day6 is but a bright-eyed, rising five-piece Korean pop-rock group, making a name for themselves over the last four years. Having debuted in 2015, three studio albums now reside in their repertoire; Sunrise, Moonrise and Unlock.

Tickets start from $148. More info here.

 

New Hope Club (Oct 29)

 

Originally a duo, George Smith and Blake Richardson were later joined by Reece Bibby from X Factor 2014’s fourth runner-up Stereo Kicks. The trio rose to fame after uploading a cover of British pop-rock band The Vamps’ "Wake Up". Catch the charming boys next month with radio hits like “Love Again” and “Permission”.

Tickets start from $95. 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—are making 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.
 

Why Don’t We (Nov 16)

 

This year pays homage to a couple of artistes from the teenybopper category, including Jesse McCartney, New Hope Club, and in November, Why Don’t We, at the Sands Convention and Expo Centre. Bop along to feel-good pop hits from the boyband such as “8 Letters” and “What am I”.

Tickets start from $138. More info here.

 

Boy Pablo (Nov 23)

 

Kick back with Norweigian indie-pop quartet Boy Pablo as they bring some relaxed, slow dance-worthy guitar accompaniment to lead singer Nicolas Munoz’s poppy vocals during the latter part of November. The 19-year-old has taken to some of the biggest music festivals, including Coachella and Lollapalooza, and will be continuing his success by taking the Southeast Asian stages by storm with numbers from both EPs, Roy Pablo and Soy Pablo.

Tickets are sold out. More info here.

 

Neon Lights (Nov 23-24)

 

Here’s one for the hipsters; Neon Lights is back for its third run this November with spectacular headliners to lead both days. British Grammy award-winners Mumford and Sons is scheduled to take on first day with folky rock fan favs such as “Little Lion Man” after British electronic-soul duo Honne’s set where festival-goers can expect songs from their 2016 album Warm On a Cold Night. And on Day 2, indie-pop songstress Halsey headlines with anthemic charters from the 2015 indie album Badlands.

Tickets start from $128. 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 behind for good. Exact dates are TBC but you know we’ll be awaiting the Rocket Man's last mission.

More info here.


U2 (Nov 30 & Dec 1)
 

If you still haven’t found what you’re looking for, perhaps a ticket to the upcoming U2 gig might help. Dropping by as part of their Joshua Tree Tour 2019 are Bono and gang with decade-defying ultimate rock classics like “With Or Without You” and “Beautiful Day”. Two beautiful days await when they arrive, on Nov 30 and Dec 1.

Bon Iver (Jan 17 2020)

Stiff Little Fingers (Feb 13 2020)

 

One of the pioneering bands in the punk rock industry, Belfast-hailing Stiff Little Fingers have been in the business since the late 1970s as one of the first few prominent international punk bands, among the likes of the Sex Pistols and Ramones.

Green Day (Mar 8 2020)
 

Whether you’re a fan of the pop, rock or alternative scene, you're bound to have heard that Green Day is dropping by for just one night to bring back some old-school punk rock into our lives. The legendary band has laid the foundations in the world of alternative music, with timeless hits such as “Wake Me Up When September Ends”, “American Idiot” and “21 Guns”. Expect lead Billie Joe Armstrong’s iconic nasal whines, coupled with rebellious lyrics that have served as angsty teen-fuel for almost two decades.
