The Top 10 Music Acts We Want To See In Singapore In 2015!

By  December 29, 2014

Let's be real; 2014 was a year to remember especially for you concert-lovers and gig-goers. We had the honour of hosting many memorable performances from the likes of Taylor Swift to The 1975 and to our more recent guests, Yellowcard; to name just a few.

This amazing year could just be a preview for what's to come in 2015, so take a look at our Top 10 music acts we want to see rocking our little island in the upcoming year!

 

10. Charli XCX

Nobody seems to get Charli XCX's catchy songs out of their heads. The rising British pop star who recently released her 3rd album, Sucker, has definitely got what it takes to be big. With her hits like Boom Clap, Break The Rules as well as lending her unique pop voice to even bigger hits like Iggy Azalea's Fancy and Icona Pop's I Love It (which she co-wrote), we'd love to see her bring a Singapore stage alive and dancing on their feet.

 

9. U2

Now we all may have hated this band their involvement in a certain iTunes marketing scheme regarding their latest Songs Of Innocence record, but come on this is U2 we're talking about. Besides that really poor, poor, poor decision, U2 still remains one of the best live bands in the world to this day and who knows? We may be seeing the last of this iconic quartet because they have rocked this business a long time and trust them, they know how to rock a stage.

 

8. 21 Pilots

This American musical duo has quietly gained the interest and support from many growing fans in the world, including Singapore, for their special indie pop sound. And I know a number of fans here that have been waiting a long a while to see a 21 Pilots concert. They have sneaked in the bandwagon of the rising indie pop/electronica movement and hopefully with their recent breaking into mainstream music, we'd see Tyler and Josh garner more support till they step on our soil.

 

7. Bruno Mars

Yes, we know we've seen Bruno Mars this year already! But who doesn't want him to come back next year? The pop sensation has already made himself a household name and still he's improved himself particularly in terms of performing. He sings, he dances, he plays the drums, he's just a born entertainer.

His performance in this year's Superbowl half-time show really showcased his raw showmanship. With his latest hit Uptown Funk LSS-ing many people, we'd love to see Bruno and his Smeezingtons do their thang on a Singapore stage. He definitely could take on our new national stadium, which probably isn't big enough for him.

 

6. Muse

When Muse puts on a show, they put on a show. This trio has rocked arenas and stages many thought were too big for just 3 men, but with their larger-than-life sound of Matt Bellamy's vocals and guitar effects as well as the thumping drums grooving with the bass sometimes backed by huge orchestration, they've got the power to control a crowd - no matter how big. And it's absolute magic whenever they play the slow anthemic Starlight and we definitely want to see that magic here again.

 

5. Beyoncé

Queen Beyoncé is THE pop icon of the century. With countless hits, successful albums and not to mention as a fantastic crowd-pleaser, there are millions who adore this diva queen. And there are also millions who'd love to see her live and upclose (as seen in the picture above), immersed in her majestic aura. So a quick no-brainer question: why isn't she here yet? Enough said, just get her here ASAP in 2015.

 

4. The Vamps

The Vamps have been one of the better pleasant surprises this year and they have the numbers to prove that. Their hits like Wild Heart and Can We Dance are so catchy and singable that they have become the guilty pleasures of many. Definitely an up and coming group that has a big musical potential and we'd love to catch these boys live while they're still young.

 

3. Taylor Swift

America's Number 1 sweetheart has proved this year that she has a whole different side to her music with even more attitude and energy in her songs and concerts! She has undoubtedly one of the year's best songs with Shake It Off and her 1989 album is powerfully promising with incredible tracks.

With the 1989 Tour kicking off very soon, Swifties in Singapore will have their fingers crossed that Tay will cross oceans just to grace our shores and perform for us again.

 

2. Jack White

We haven't see this genius madman in Singapore yet. Be it with the Stripes or The Raconteurs or The Dead Weather, we still haven't had the privilege of hosting this talented musician. Everybody knows the Seven Nation Army and what a sight it would be to see that song rocking a Singapore stadium.

Jack White has gone solo now, but maybe just maybe - we get to see one of the greatest enigmas of rock and roll bring out his wild personality on the guitar in front of the loyal Jack White fans in our country.

 

1. Arctic Monkeys

2014 has been the year for UK indie rock band Arctic Monkeys. The Monkeys have been in the rising indie rock scene from the very start and have quietly worked their way into mainstream music especially with songs this year like Do I Wanna Know? and Why'd You Only Call Me When You're High? from their critically acclaimed AM album. (What's with the questioning titles guys?) Singapore has yet to see this band and now that they are one of the best bands in the world right now, we can't help but hope that they bring an epic performance to one of our stadiums.
