All the major Singapore concerts happening in 2017

All the major Singapore concerts happening in 2017

2017 is shaping up to be a truly spectacular year for live music in Singapore — we're attempting to uncover as much as we can, so for now, let's take a look at the big ones. The main events. The spectacles that drive fans from all over Southeast Asia just to bear witness.

Singapore has already had the treat of experiencing live shows in 2017 by acts like Coldplay, Metallica, Guns N' Roses, Two Door Cinema ClubFifth Harmony, Joe Satriani, Megadeth, Generation Axe — all in the span of a mere five months. What else is brewing up in this small country? We thought we’d simplify it for you by listing all of them here.

While there are major acts coming for festivals, we figure we'll focus on the headlining shows first (so don't ask why Ariana Grande isn't here). Behold, just some of the international acts set to grace our shores for the next seven months, from May to December 2017.

Note: all ticket prices exclude GST and booking fees.
