Which Swedish band was more successful in America than ABBA? Yes, the Swedish band that had more number ones and Top 10 hits than ABBA in the US (and once featured on their very own postage stamp) are coming back to Singapore in 2012.

Marie Fredriksson and Per Gessle who make up Roxette, came out of Sweden in the late ’80s. Their game was pop and their mission was to conquer the world. With 33 chart-busting singles and total record sales of 75 million, it seems safe to say “mission accomplished”. Except for one thing – it ain’t over yet! Biding their time during Marie Fredriksson’s recovery from her brain tumour in 2002, the band has gradually staged a comeback that has climaxed with the release of their new album Charm School and their current world tour. After an extremely successful start in Russia, Roxette went on to sell out concerts throughout Europe, South America and South Africa over the last year with more than one million tickets sold at 70 concerts. After such an overwhelming response in the rest of the world, Roxette have decided to extend the tour to include a very special show in Singapore.

“The concerts have been amazing so far,” says Per Gessle. “Marie and the band are in top shape and the response has been incredible. And the way the new album has been received is great. We feel very fortunate and look forward to a very exciting year!”

Roxette’s brand new album Charm School was released by EMI earlier this year. Charm School went straight to number one on the German, Czech and Swiss album charts the week of its release and is heading for platinum status in Sweden. With a catalogue of mega hits including It Must Have Been Love, Joyride, Listen To Your Heart, How Do You Do, Sleeping In My Car, Dressed For Success and The Look, this is set to be one of THE live events of the 2012 calendar.

Roxette last toured Singapore in 1995 on their Crash! Boom! Bang! world tour. A year when we still didn’t quite know what a “Spice Girl” was or what the World Wide Web was all about. And Facebook!? What was that? So grab all your friends, listen to your heart and get yourself dressed for success and get ready to join the joyride with Roxette in 2012!

FOO FIGHTERS live in Singapore (CANCELLED)

24 Feb

SYNOPSIS
FOO FIGHTERS
LIVE & LOUD IN SINGAPORE
FRI~MARCH 2~THE PADANG

CHUGG & LUSHINGTON in association with COURTS are ecstatic to announce that six-time Grammy award-winning rockers and 2011 MTV VMA Best Rock Video winners the FOO FIGHTERS will be performing One Night Only and One Show Only in Asia to be staged at the Padang in Singapore on Friday 2 March 2012.

They are lauded by most as the “last popular gasp of respected rock” and are currently nominated for six Grammy’s at the 54th annual awards ceremony to be held on 12 February in Los Angeles.

Over the course of their 16 year history career, FOO FIGHTERS have sold millions of records and raised countless voices in sing-alongs of iconic anthems like “Everlong” “My Hero” “Learn to Fly” “All My Life” “Best of You,” and “The Pretender”–with new favorites such as “Rope” and “Walk” from their current international #1 album WASTING LIGHT now generating equal enthusiasm.

FOO FIGHTERS’ constantly evolving blend of unrestrained hard rock fury and irresistible pop melody has been often imitated yet never equalled, winning over more fans and critics with each passing year. 2011 has seen the band receive the most positive critical notices of their career with Rolling Stone calling Wasting Light “the best Foos album since the first two.” Meanwhile recent highlights of their increasingly ambitious touring agenda include last July’s extraordinary 130,000 capacity weekender at Milton Keynes Bowl in the UK and last month’s Australia/New Zealand stadium tour–whose finale’ generated actual geological tremors. Each and every FOO FIGHTERS show is truly a resounding testament to their longevity and to ever-growing fan base which is now well into its second generation.

Demand has never been higher for a stadium rock quality rock extravaganza. FOO FIGHTERS are more than happy to oblige with the biggest rock concert of the year in every city they visit the world over.

Chugg & Lushington are both powerhouses in their own right and yet we are excited to have this opportunity of jointly combining forces to ensure that what the FOOS have created is staged at a magnitude that will do justice to the Band, the punters and be one for the history books. Memories will abound and be indelible as Singapore welcomes the FOO FIGHTERS for a magnificent night of unadulterated rock.

“This is one of those special shows that you will always remember and are fortunate to attend and I am delighted to be at the forefront of promoting the only show in Asia.”
Michael Chugg – Chairman, Chugg Entertainment

“Lushington is thrilled to have the opportunity to reunite with the Foo’s. We have great memories of our Harbour Pavilion show back in 1996 with Sonic Youth and it’s wonderful to see what the band has achieved in the years since.”
Michael Roche – Regional Director, Lushington Entertainments

“As a retailer whose customers are a top priority, we are constantly looking for different opportunities to enhance their shopping experience at Courts. Not only is Courts very excited to be part of this show, I’m certain our customers will be equally excited.”
Terry O’Connor – CEO, COURTS ASIA

EVANESCENCE LIVE IN SINGAPORE

18 Feb

SYNOPSIS
‘Like’ Lushington Entertainments on Facebook and follow us on Twitter to get the latest news on all our events!

Lushington Entertainments proudly announces EVANESCENCE LIVE at Singapore Indoor Stadium on February 27, 2012.

After a three year sabbatical, the multi-platinum, worldwide success of their sophomore album, The Open Door, Grammy award winning band Evanescence have released their third self-titled studio album produced by Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, RUSH, Deftones).

Evanescence is Amy Lee (vocals, piano), Terry Balsamo (guitar) Tim McCord (bass) , Will Hunt (drums) and Troy McLawhorn (guitar). Led by Lee’s operatic, passionate vocals, Evanescence has sold close to 25 million albums since its 2003 debut, Fallen. The project’s premiere single, Bring Me To Life snagged the band a Grammy for best hard rock performance. Other massive hits followed, including My Immortal, Going Under, and Call Me When You’re Sober, establishing Evanescence as worldwide tour headliners.

The inherent drama in Evanescence’s music – a kind of audio odyssey that can turn on a dime from piano-led introspection to hammering guitar – has resonated with listeners everywhere. The music’s core, which ranges from beautiful to subtle to aggressive, finds a counterpart in Lee’s passionate vocals, lyrics that forge a connection with audiences searching for identity or struggling with feelings of desire, hope love and loss.

Now, Evanescence’s thoughts have turned to returning to the road. “This record is so geared for live shows,” Lee says. “We were thinking about playing live the whole time we were writing it.” Making the return all the sweeter are the fans. “I can’t describe how great it feels to have their support. I love so much meeting them before and after the show. If feels like they’re growing with us” says Lee.

Though already superstars, Lee and her bandmates have the enthusiasm of newcomers as they look to a future that is brimming with possibility through Evanescence. “This moment right now between us and the fans, it feels like a celebration, a homecoming, a family reunion,” Lee says. “We’re so happy to be back.”
