While fans are still reeling over the news of Coldplay performing in Singapore (pre-sale for Citi Card customers starts today, by the way), another rumour has surfaced.
U2, the Irish rock band from Dublin and arguably one of the biggest bands of all time, might be performing in the same 55,000-seat stadium sometime next year.
To date, the band has released 13 studio albums and are one of the world’s best-selling music artists of all time, having sold more than 170 million records worldwide. They also have 22 Grammy Awards tucked under their belt (more than any other band) and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2005.
Though not 100% confirmed as at time of writing, an article by The Straits Times mentioned that the band is currently in talks with the relevant parties. On top of that, several Irish media outlets have confirmed that U2 will embark on a new world tour starting in March 2017 to promote their upcoming album, “Songs of Experience”.
According to Irish Central, “Songs of Experience” will deal with the impact of fame on the group, which got its start in the 1970s. It’s a follow-up to their previous album, “Songs of Innocence”, the infamous album that was announced at an Apple Inc. product launch event and released the same day on iTunes, covered their boyhoods.
For now, information is still scarce but if the above is indeed true, then it would mark the first time that U2 will be performing in Singapore.
We’ll update this post with more information as soon as we have ’em details. Hang in there!
