MR. 100 REASONS TO FLY LIVE SHOWCASE IN SINGAPORE
Hong Kong quintet Mr. have been around since 2008 but have only recently released their debut Mandarin album, 100 Reasons To Fly. Expect them to rock up a storm with songs from the record. And you can decide for yourself if lead singer Alan Po (third from left) really does sound like Cantopop superstar Eason Chan.
Where: Shanghai Dolly MRT: Clarke Quay When: Tomorrow, 7.30pm (doors open at 6.30pm) Admission: Limited tickets at $38 from Shanghai Dolly
JONATHAN LEE SINGAPORE CONCERT 2014
Taiwanese singer-songwriter-producer Jonathan Lee, dubbed the godfather of Taiwan pop, has written hits for singers including Sarah Chen, Jeff Chang and Chao Chuan. Some of the most memorable were for his ex-wife Sandy Lam, including the duet When Love Becomes The Past. He was also part of Superband with Lo Ta-yu, Wakin Chau and Chang Chen-yue from 2008 to 2010. This means plenty of hits for him to take on in his distinctively gruff voice.
Where: Singapore Indoor Stadium MRT: Stadium When: Tomorrow, 8pm Admission: $98 to $178, from Sports Hub Tix
Noise Singapore presents a weekend of good fun and music from 20 home-grown bands in the heart of Orchard Road. Feel the emotion behind the indie-rock gems of the Great Spy Experiment or groove to the breezy indie-pop of the Sapporo Safaris (left) and the feel-good pop of Take Two. There will also be an arts market where you can buy local handicrafts.
