FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND - LAST CHANCE TO DANCE - SINGAPORE 2016
Welsh quintet Funeral for a Friend released some of the more important post-hardcore and emo music in the early-2000s and have since built up a substantial discography. This is the last chance for fans to see them play live here - the show is part of their worldwide farewell tour. Later this year, the band will be no more.
