LIVE & LOUD IN SINGAPORE
FRI~MARCH 2~THE PADANG
CHUGG & LUSHINGTON in association with COURTS are ecstatic to announce that six-time Grammy award-winning rockers and 2011 MTV VMA Best Rock Video winners the FOO FIGHTERS will be performing One Night Only and One Show Only in Asia to be staged at the Padang in Singapore on Friday 2 March 2012.
They are lauded by most as the “last popular gasp of respected rock” and are currently nominated for six Grammy’s at the 54th annual awards ceremony to be held on 12 February in Los Angeles.
Over the course of their 16 year history career, FOO FIGHTERS have sold millions of records and raised countless voices in sing-alongs of iconic anthems like “Everlong” “My Hero” “Learn to Fly” “All My Life” “Best of You,” and “The Pretender”–with new favorites such as “Rope” and “Walk” from their current international #1 album WASTING LIGHT now generating equal enthusiasm.
FOO FIGHTERS’ constantly evolving blend of unrestrained hard rock fury and irresistible pop melody has been often imitated yet never equalled, winning over more fans and critics with each passing year. 2011 has seen the band receive the most positive critical notices of their career with Rolling Stone calling Wasting Light “the best Foos album since the first two.” Meanwhile recent highlights of their increasingly ambitious touring agenda include last July’s extraordinary 130,000 capacity weekender at Milton Keynes Bowl in the UK and last month’s Australia/New Zealand stadium tour–whose finale’ generated actual geological tremors. Each and every FOO FIGHTERS show is truly a resounding testament to their longevity and to ever-growing fan base which is now well into its second generation.
Demand has never been higher for a stadium rock quality rock extravaganza. FOO FIGHTERS are more than happy to oblige with the biggest rock concert of the year in every city they visit the world over.
Chugg & Lushington are both powerhouses in their own right and yet we are excited to have this opportunity of jointly combining forces to ensure that what the FOOS have created is staged at a magnitude that will do justice to the Band, the punters and be one for the history books. Memories will abound and be indelible as Singapore welcomes the FOO FIGHTERS for a magnificent night of unadulterated rock.
“This is one of those special shows that you will always remember and are fortunate to attend and I am delighted to be at the forefront of promoting the only show in Asia.”
Michael Chugg – Chairman, Chugg Entertainment
“Lushington is thrilled to have the opportunity to reunite with the Foo’s. We have great memories of our Harbour Pavilion show back in 1996 with Sonic Youth and it’s wonderful to see what the band has achieved in the years since.”
Michael Roche – Regional Director, Lushington Entertainments
“As a retailer whose customers are a top priority, we are constantly looking for different opportunities to enhance their shopping experience at Courts. Not only is Courts very excited to be part of this show, I’m certain our customers will be equally excited.”
Terry O’Connor – CEO, COURTS ASIA
