A-MEI WORLD TOUR 2017 - SINGAPORE

Good news if you are a fan of Taiwanese diva A-mei (above) as there are still tickets available for her latest gig here.

The concert title suggests an upgrade of the Utopia tour that she brought to the National Stadium in January last year, but even with a carnival theme, she will probably still belt out a choice selection of her many hit ballads.

WHERE: Singapore Indoor Stadium, 2 Stadium Walk MRT: Stadium WHEN: Today and tomorrow, 8pm ADMISSION: $98 to $288 from SportsHubTix (call 3158-7888 or go to www.sportshubtix.sg)
