If you are one of those YouTube junkies who lustily watch homemade music videos and blow kisses to the heartthrobs on your computer screen, there is a chance now for you to stop slobbering over your keyboard and save your loving for the real deal.
Hold your squeals, but YouTube artistes Sam Tsui and Kurt Hugo Schneider will be appearing at a stage near you.
Young music talents that are as bright as their smiles
The DIY duo is set to play for one night at Kallang Theatre in Singapore on 12 September, with tickets already selling via www.sistic.com.sg. Make those nimble clicking fingers of yours work fast.
Tsui and Schneider paved their own way to fame with their diverse repertoire, singing covers and originals, proving that you don’t need a major record deal or a famous uncle to be an entertainer.
Their videos, released via YouTube, took on a life their own and became viral, including a popular cover of Nelly’s ‘Just A Dream’, with more than 67 million views.
There are creative rearrangements, surprising mishmashes and medleys, and acapella numbers, and viewers and subscribers keep going back for more.
Expect to catch live renditions of viewers' favourites, such as Britney Spears’ ‘Hold It Against Me’ and Bruno Mars’ ‘Just The Way You Are’, as well as originals from Tsui’s latest album, ‘Make It Up’, produced by Schneider.
Sam Tsui and Kurt Hugo Schneider live in Singapore | Date: 12 September 2013| Time: 8pm | Venue: Kallang Theatre | Tickets: $108 (with meet -and-greet session), $78, $58 via www.sistic.com.sg
