Tom Jones, The Fray and More, This Weekend!

We bring you the top 5 must-catch events happening after hours this weekend. Miss them at your own peril!

1. Tom Jones Live

Get ready to do some knicker-throwing (ladies, of course) as “The Voice” makes an appearance in Singapore this weekend. Tom Jones needs no introduction with his unique vocal prowess and charisma which made him one of the most respected, admired and loved performers in the music industry today.

One of the rare performers today whose career spans almost half a century, don’t miss this one night only performance with hits such as “It’s Not Unusual”, “She’s a Lady”, “What’s New Pussycat”, and “Sex Bomb” expected.

Friday only, at Resorts World Sentosa. Tickets from $88 to $358. 


2. Timbre Rock & Roots Festival

Don’t miss this incredible lineup of world-class musicians, including Grammy Awards winners and nominees like Blues Train, Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club, Gipsy Kings and The Fray. Spanning two evenings at the Marina Promenade, this is one event happening this weekend you absolutely have to go for. Trust us, you won’t regret it.

Read all about the festival in our preview guide here, as well as our interview with organizers Danny and Seow Yee here.

On Saturday and Sunday, at the Marina Promenade. Tickets from $108(1-day pass) to $178 (2-day pass).


3. Sarah Chang plays Bruch

One of classical music’s most gifted young violinists, the Korean-American superstar Sarah Chang, makes a return performance with the SSO to play Bruch’s Concerto No. 1.Nielsen’s Fifth Symphony, which  is dominated by a sense of conflict.

Friday only, at the Esplanade Concert Hall. Tickets from $20 to $125.


4. Sweet Charity Musical

If you’re a theater buff, you’d like this smash hit Broadway musical with book by Neil Simon, music by Cy Coleman and lyrics by Dorothy Fields. Set in the 1960’s, Sweet Charity follows the misadventures of love encountered by the gullible and guileless Charity Hope Valentine, a woman who always gives her heart to the wrong man. Through song, dance and humor we find Charity most endearing, as she remains forever hopeful in pursuit of her dreams

Until Saturday, at LASALLE College of the Arts. Tickets at $25.


5. Wedding Pop!

Wedding bells are a-chiming for one of our treasured columnists, local music  industry veteran Patrick Chng (yes, he of Typewriter, Oddfellow and Music For Good fame)! We shed a few tears of joy and wish him well in his upcoming years of marital bliss with Stephanie Chok, and hope you’ll be able to join us down by Home Club where Patrick and his pals have all banded together for one final, joyous sendoff.

 Headliners include Livonia, playing their first gig in 10 years, Typewriter, Etc and Midnight Marvel.The bands will be donating all proceeds from WEDDING POP! to charity organization, H.O.M.E. (www.home.org.sg).

Saturday only, at Home Club. Free entry before 9pm.
