Singaporeans are definitely spoilt for choice when it comes to concerts. There are so many artists and performers who make Singapore a stop in their world tour, or even as part of a music festival.

With 2019 less than two months away from us, the year is already looking pretty solid with a number of announced upcoming concerts in Singapore. It can be hard to keep track of upcoming concerts, so we’ve come up with a definitive guide that will be constantly updated.

Now there’s no need for multiple tabs and searching.

January

1. Slash ft. Miles Kennedy & The Conspirators

Grammy-winning, guitar god, Slash will will bless Singapore in the flesh in January 2019.

The legend whose real name is Saul Hudson, will play an exclusive, one-night-only show here with his band Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators. Myles Kennedy is one of the much-feted lead vocalists alive today – known for his huge vocal range that spans four octaves and eight semitones.

Since his reputation-cementing tenure as the lead guitarist of Guns N’ Roses and his stint at the forefront of Velvet Revolver‘s six-string barrage, Slash has blazed his own trail as a solo artist with a vast catalog of chart-blasting solo albums.

This will, undoubtedly, be a historic night.

No stranger to Singapore, she was one of the headline performers at South Korean pop music festival HallyuPopFest held at the Singapore Indoor Stadium earlier this year.

She is recognised as one of the most iconic and versatile female singers of the K-POP world and is widely regarded as a “talented vocalist” for her soulful vocals. Taeyeon charmed fans of the group and later released solo songs such as I, featuring South Korean rapper Verbal Jint.

3. Taking Back Sunday

If you can’t believe that Taking Back Sunday have been around for 20 years, you’re not alone, because they can’t either.

From the band’s landmark 2002 debut, Tell All Your Friends, to their most recent full-length, 2016’s Tidal Wave, Taking Back Sunday have evolved from a key player in the early 2000s emo scene to a genre-defying rock band. This fact is evidenced on Twenty, a 21-song collection set for release in January 2019 that spans all seven of their full-lengths.

Whether your introduction to the band was singing along to “A Decade Under The Influence” or hearing “MakeDamnSure” or “Sink Into Me”, Twenty is a look back at some of the highlights from this unlikely group of musical misfits.
