However, in just 10 days following the announcement, the show has officially sold out. Now, he's adding another date to accommodate the growing fanbase.
“There is so much in store in the near future and my show at The Esplanade will be the first time I get to showcase them," says Tan in a press release. "Having sold out an entire hall on the first night, I am now given the opportunity to present both the old and the new to even more people. I am ecstatic and I hope this leap of faith pays off.”
On June 11, Gentle Bones will take to the stage with an opening set by Linying, who just premiered her newest single 'Alpine'. The original June 10th date will feature electronic duo .gif. Gentle Bones is signed to record label Universal Music Singapore.
