Concert Review

Passenger's Busking Act LIVE In Singapore

By  January 14, 2017

The Star Theatre remained unlit as ushers guided other concert-goers to their seats with the help of miniature flashlights. It was a quarter past 8 when the lights beamed onto the centre of the stage. Out from the darkness, a lone man made his way under the spotlight, with nothing but a guitar in his hands. Applause and cheer from the audience ensued. 

The man, Mike Rosenberg (aka Passenger), dived into the first song of the night; a solemn and heartfelt performance of Fairytales & Firesides. "This isn't going to be the happiest concert of your life," he clarified, before playing yet another sentimental song, Life's For The Living

Just like a professional busker that he is, Mike did not hold back from making banter with the audience and sharing stories and inspirations behind his songs. Before Travelling Alone, he indulged in a lengthy monologue as he reminisced of the people he met as a busker in the past.

It wasn't until more than halfway through the gig when Mike finally played his multi-platinum hit, Let Her Go and broke hearts all around. 

 
The set was a typical 16-songs long and a good mix of his old and new material. Mike also squeezed in two covers, such as a beautiful rendition of Simon & Garfunkel's The Sound Of Silence and Bruce Springsteen's Dancing In The Dark.  However, to the disappointment of many, favourites from his latest album such as Anywhere, If You Go and Home failed to make it to the cut. 
 
Take a look at Passenger's setlist for his concert in Singapore below!
