5 Bands That Visited Asia But Skipped Singapore This Year

By  October 20, 2017

While Singapore might be regarded as a prime destination for musical acts in Asia, we also do get deprived of concerts from time to time.

There’s Paul McCartney who played a show in Japan earlier this year and Liam Gallagher of Oasis who recently visited The Philippines, leaving Singapore slightly jealous.

They say you can’t have it all, but 2017 would’ve been better if these bands also stopped by Singapore for a show while they were in Asia:

 

1. The Kooks

Indie rock band The Kooks were at We The Fest and Good Vibes Festival in Jakarta and Kuala Lumpur last August. It would’ve been a thrill to finally hear some songs from Inside In / Inside Out, but I guess we’ll have to wait.

 

2. New Hope Club

New Hope Club might not be a household name (yet), but the rising boy band sure has a large following in The Philippines, which they visited earlier this month together with The Vamps.

 

3. The Vamps

The British quartet played shows in The Philippines and Japan for their Middle of the Night Tour and we sure hope they’ll visit us in Singapore soon after their well-received gig in January 2016.

 

4. Kodaline

It’s been 2 years since indie folk band Kodaline made their Singapore debut with Sheppard. But the Irish lads skipped our country this time despite stopping by Indonesia and Malaysia for We The Fest and Good Vibes Festival.

 

5. Phoenix

Let’s just say August wasn’t as great of a month for me as I succumbed to watching videos of Phoenix on social media while others saw them play live in Japan, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, and The Philippines. It would’ve been a dream come true to experience their psychedelic show and see their kaleidoscopic stage set up in person after missing their show in Singapore 3 years ago. But yet again, one can hope.
