Review: Big Night Out 2011

Big Night Out 2011 concerts were not BIG after all. The organizer should had just put everyone in the Pen area to make it an eventful nights. There were so many empty seats and they decided shrinking the Pen A & B into a single Pen just a week before the concert. Saxon was not able to perform.

Some fans were not happy when their seats got reassigned. They had reserved the first row seats but had to settle on the reassigned seats that were a few rows back. Pen A tickets holders started selling their tickets as they were aware that there were much more cheaper tickets on sale.

I reached the Singapore Indoor Stadium at 7.35pm. The atmosphere was not so great, not like the Iron Maiden one. No queuing problem this time.

At around 8.20pm, Sugar Sammy came on stage and shared his jokes. Then I Am Giant made their appearance at 8.40pm. Not bad from the London band.

MICHAEL BUBLE ”Crazy Love Tour” Live In Singapore

SYNOPSIS
The Grammy award-winning Canadian singer will perform in Singapore on 9 Mar 2011 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

Michael Bublé debuted in 2003 and achieved worldwide commercial success in 2005 with the album “It’s Time”. These albums featured standards from various eras such as “Sway”, “Come Fly With Me” and “Save The Last Dance For Me”. “Call Me Irresponsible” in 2007 was an even bigger success, reaching number one worldwide. It also spawned one of his biggest hits ever, “Everything” which carried a more adult-contemporary sound than his usual big band style.

The fourth album, “Crazy Love” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart last year. Aside from discovering a fresh way to deliver the live authentic feeling musical goods he is known for, his choice of material shows an artist still hungry to innovate and make his mark both as a stylist, but also as a songwriter. Bublé co-wrote the album’s two singles, “Haven’t Met You Yet” and “Hold On” with former collaborators Alan Chang and Amy Foster. Soon to be released, the 2-CD deluxe “Crazy Love Hollywood Edition” features the original “Crazy Love” album plus a second disc containing four brand new studio recordings and four live songs recorded during his “Crazy Love Tour”.

As Michael Bublé opens wide the doors to his own emotions for the world to see on “Crazy Love”, he knows he has no other choice. “They will know it’s real because they will feel it too — and after that we are no longer strangers.”

Michael Bublé returns to Singapore after his previous concerts in 2003 and 2005 with Lushington Entertainments. SingTel presents fans an opportunity to catch the ultimate showman in action in 2011. “As SingTel transforms into a multimedia solutions company, we are committed to bringing the best of entertainment to our customers through exclusive concerts and services such as AMPed.
