Concert review: Rolling Stones turn on the heat in non-stop two-hour show at Marina Bay Sands

Mick Jagger - rock royalty, cultural icon and 70-year-old stage dynamo - is also a Singlish fan it seems.

How else to explain his multiple uses of the colloquial form of the English rocker’s native language at the band’s Marina Bay Sands’ gig?

"Wah lau, your weather damn hot," he quipped halfway through the set. "Just when I thought your weather is hot, your food lagi more hot."

Needless to say, that went down well with both the local and expatriate fans that made up the 5,500 strong audience who had paid between $250 and $700 and snapped up all tickets within two hours of them going on sale last month.
