No judgment: go sing your hearts out.
Live music and concerts are clearly a big thing in Singapore, with tickets selling out within a matter of days: we all know about the national state of FOMO. We’ve rounded up the biggest concerts happening this June – from boy bands, K-pop, Taiwanese stars, and even boy band boys who have left their band behind – there’s something for everyone here so don’t let us hear you whining about missing out. Beg, borrow or steal your tickets if you must…
Dubbed ‘The Chinese Beatles’ by the press, Taiwanese boy band Mayday is guaranteed to bring the house down in Singapore (if the screaming fans don’t). With 20 years of favourites such as “Suddenly Missing You So Bad” and “You Are Not Truly Happy”, this is one concert you don’t want to be watching on YouTube.

Who hasn’t heard of Air Supply? Iconic soft pop duo Graham Russell and Russell Hitchcock are out to prove that their voices only get better with time with their timeless anthems “Lost In Love” and “All Out Of Love”.

The Manzano brothers return to serenade Singapore after three years. The former YouTube sensations have established a fast-growing fan base and will be performing popular cover songs as well as originals. Yeah they bring on the squeals but give them props for their silky vocals.

He’s known in Taiwan as the ‘King of the lovelorn people’ and rightly so. With his boyish good looks and smooth vocals, his songs such as “How Have You Been” and “Let’s Not Be Friends In The Future” can probably convince the audience that they’re all Orsino from Twelfth Night.
Eric Chou Live In Singapore, 9 June, The Max Pavilion, Tickets via Sistic
Unfortunately, we have a clash. Unless you’re able to clone yourself, you have to choose between Eric Chou and David Tao. Reasons why you may choose David Tao include: he’s also a Taiwanese R&B superstar and known hearthrob (albeit 26 years older) and his song “Ordinary Friends” just be one of the most played songs in Karaoke sessions across Asia. The choice is yours…

We’ve already had fellow One-Directioner Harry Styles do his thing here, and now it’s the turn of Irish singer-songwriter Niall Horan to perform in Singapore for the first time as a solo artist. Expect his hits “Slow Hands” and “This Town” in the lineup; and judging by the ticket sales, he’s clearly doing alright without his old buds.

Twice is back in Singapore for the second time in two years. These K-pop sweethearts will be sure to put in a dynamic performance featuring their top hits such as “Cheer Up” and “Likey”. Resistance is futile: we know you likey them too.
