Who would have thought that the cancelation of Soundwave Festival 2016 in Australia would create quake-sized tremors in the Singapore hardcore scene?
If you haven’t heard, British metalcore band Bring Me the Horizon’s show in Singapore has been postponed. But before you get upset about the postponement, LAMC Productions, the promoters behind the BMTH show has arranged for existing ticket holders to receive free entry to the upcoming show by Walk The Moon. The synth-pop quartet will bring their wild antics to the Fort Canning Green on January 19th. Talk about silver lining here!
To receive complimentary entry to the Walk The Moon show, BMTH ticket holders will be required to show their tickets at the separate entry point at the main entrance for BMTH ticket holders. Ticket holders holding onto either physical tickets or Gig-Merch e-tickets will be granted entry. Fret not, tickets will still be kept valid for the re-scheduled Bring Me the Horizon show so you get to enjoy both shows at one singular cost! Singaporean band Take Two will also be opening for Walk The Moon.
While fans of the alternative metal band may worry and wonder about the difference in genres between both acts, it is an exceptional sweet gesture by the promoters to gratify their fans following the unfortunate yet unavoidable postponement of the show.
But taking two steps back to look at it from a grand angle, it is after all an opportunity to explore music for what it is and be exposed to its many genres. Big ups to LAMC!
