It appears Singaporean acts are taking ever wider and more ambitious strides within the realms of live performance. Just last month Gentle Bones (real name Joel Tan) sold out two nights at the Esplanade Concert Hall in an unprecedented show by a local artist.
Now, The Sam Willows continue to prove that a wide appeal is not necessarily reserved acts outside of our shores..

Packing in the crowds at their one night concert at the Hard Rock's The Coliseum, the pop-tastic quartet delivered a show worthy of being deemed a true spectacle. Complete with impressive light fixtures, interpretive backup dancers, a fabulous cover of Christina Aguilera's 'Ain't No Other Man', a guest performance by rapper Shigga Shay, and hundreds of wholly enamored screaming tweens, this was a performance that was as bombastic as it was celebratory.
Opening the evening with the sweet wispy songs of Sam Rui and Indonesian acoustic trio The Overtunes, The Sam Willows seized the stage with boundless energy to perform crowd favourites like 'Glasshouse' and 'All Time High'. In addition to their own repertoire, they performed covers of British girl group Little Mix's songs 'Secret Love Song' and 'Wings'. Narelle Kheng demonstrated her prowess as a soloist with a performance of her track 'Some They Lie' and Benjamin Kheng even treated audiences to some of his personal spoken word poetry.
A truly magnificent evening of top-notch showmanship for their fans, it's indeed a damn shame if you missed out on it, but here are some highlights from the evening to tide you over till the next time.
