SEARCH AND WINGS AS DOUBLE TROUBLE SET TO ROCK SINGAPORE IN OCTOBER 2012
Performing live together for the first time in Singapore
After nearly two decades since their debut Double Trouble concert in 1993, Malaysian rock legends, Search and Wings, will finally be making their way down south to Singapore. They will be rocking and sharing the stage for the first time in Singapore at the Singapore Indoor Stadium in a one-night only concert on 12 October 2012. Tickets will be on sale via SISTIC from 6 August onwards.
The Double Trouble concert in Singapore will mark the bands’ first reunion since their last concert together in Malacca in 2011. It will also be the only concert planned for the year. In 2010 and 2011, die-hard fans were treated to sold-out concerts around Malaysia that spanned over several months. Search and Wings were at their peak of stardom when they decided to collaborate on an album in 1992. The album titled “Double Trouble” flew off the shelves upon its release, prompting the two bands to stage their first joint concert in 1993 and name their collaboration Double Trouble.
Search, consisting of members Amy (vocals), Yazit (drums), Kidd (guitar), Din (guitar) and Nasir (bass), has released more than 18 studio albums, recorded numerous bestselling compilation albums and won several awards since coming into the scene in 1981. Their songs have also been included in countless Malaysian as well as Indonesian movies and television dramas. Their most well known hit song “Isabella” has been covered fifteen times in various languages since its original release. Their music has taken them as far as New York and more recently London and Dublin.
Wings bursts into the rock music scene in the mid-80s and have not looked back ever since. Together, Awie (vocals), Joe (guitar), Eddy (bass) and Black (drums) have received multiple awards such as Best Performance by a Band and Best Recorded Album. With more than 20 albums to date, that includes melodic slow rock songs like “Taman Rashidah Utama” (The Garden of Rashidah Utama) and “Misteri
Mimpi Syakila” (The Mysterious Dream of Syakila), they have proven to be one of the most hardworking and consistent bands around. Their tenacity and great music have garnered them a huge fan base. Its official fan club “Sayap-Sayap Wings” (The Wings of Wings) currently has more than 12,000 members from all over the region.
