SYNOPSIS
Ever popular band The Cranberries is set to hit Singapore with their first ever full scale concert!

Last performed almost a decade ago with No Doubt in Singapore, the internationally acclaimed Irish alternative rock band is now set to wow audience with their astounding sounds and all-time popular hits.

Consisting of world-renowned vocalist Dolores O’Riordan, guitarist Noel Hogan, bassist Mike Hogan and drummer Fergal Lawler, the Cranberries took the music scene by storm with their strong musicality and distinctive vocals.

The Cranberries rose to international fame in the 1990s with their debut album, “Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?” which became a huge commercial success and sold over five million copies in the United States. The group was one of the most successful rock acts of the ’90s and sold over 14.5 million albums in the United States alone. The band has achieved four top 20 albums on the Billboard 200 chart and eight top 20 singles on the Modern Rock Tracks chart. On hiatus from 2003 until reuniting in 2009, The Cranberries are back on the road with rave reviews and sold-out shows worldwide.

Fans are in for a long-awaited night of highly energetic live music extravaganza as the ironic band delivers their signature hits such as “Zombie”, “Salvation”, “Dreams” (covered by Chinese pop diva Faye Wong), “Linger”, “When You Are Gone”, “Ode To My Family” and more at this rare concert!

International pop star Kylie Minogue will make her eagerly-anticipated return to Singapore for a one-night-only concert at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on Wednesday, June 29th 2011. This is THE concert event of the year!

Kylie commented: “Touring Aphrodite has been an absolute joy. I could not have hoped for more; the band, dancers, choreography and costumes have come together like a dream. For me the most important element is always the audience and I’m delighted that I am going to have the opportunity to perform for my fans in South East Asia. I look forward to seeing you all soon.”

Kylie has been touring since February this year and has been receiving some of the best reviews of her career. The spectacular show, which will be a homage to Greek mythology and culture, has The Telegraph in the UK declaring ‘Kylie Minogue is not just a pop star any more, she is a veritable goddess’ whilst the Irish Independent said “It is unlikely you will see a more lavish event this year”.

The multi-million-dollar production will see Kylie joined on stage by a huge cast of dancers and aerial performers along with her live band. The groundbreaking production features:

– A host of specially-designed props, including a 14-foot tall golden Pegasus, a golden chariot, five video screens, a sweeping staircase set and more
– 200 different costumes/outfits utilizing over a million diamante crystals and almost 1,000 feathers
– 8 bespoke Dolce & Gabbana costumes for the Aphrodite herself
– 100 different pairs of shoes
– A four-piece band, 12 dancers and two backing singers
