The reunited New Order (sans Peter Hook) — Bernard Sumner, Stephen Morris, Gillian Gilbert, Phil Cunningham and Tom Chapman
Before we can take a breather from the multitude of concerts that are coming our way in the coming weeks, concert promoter LAMC Productions just announced that three music acts are coming our way in August.
Alternative rockers Snow Patrol performs on 6 August, American/Scottish alternative rock band Garbage plays on 21 August while seminal British synth-rock act New Order will be playing on 22 August. All concerts will take place in Fort Canning Park.
New Order, which formed in 1980 out of the ashes of Joy Division following the suicide of singer Ian Curtis, reunited with its original line-up last year, with the exception of bassist Peter Hook, who was replaced by Tom Chapman. The comeback followed a four-year hiatus.
90s alt-rocker Garbage, with lead singer Shirley Manson and uber producer and drummer Butch Vig return to Singapore. The band made a name for themselves in the late 90s, dishing out noisy alt-rock which blends Manson’s seductive vocals with the band’s penchant for sampling and sound manipulation. They’ve recently released their fifth album, ‘Not Your Kind Of People’.
‘Called Out In The Dark’ – Snow Patrol
The last act making up this triple threat in August is none other than Snow Patrol. The Belfast band drops by Singapore in support of the new album ‘Fallen Empires’ which is the follow-up to the band's 2008 album 'A Hundred Million Suns' and includes recent single 'Called Out In The Dark'.
Tickets for all three gigs ($98 to 250) will be available through Sistic. Snow Patrol tickets go on sale next 29 May, Garbage tickets go on sale on 5 June and New Order tickets start on 12 June.
