Don’t know where to go this New Year’s Eve? Fret not, we’ve got you covered ;)
Astro will be throwing the biggest countdown concert in town on 31st December, and it boasts an awesome lineup, which includes performances by Korean-American rock band Royal Pirates, Korean-Taiwanese singer Bii, and Malaysian singer Nicholas Teo. Best of all? Admission is free.
The concert is held in conjunction with the grand finals of 2016’s edition of Astro Star Quest (ASQ), where the 20th champion will be crowned in the presence of the past 19 winners. Aside from the aforementioned lineup, the 5 finalists of the show will also be putting on a performance for the audience.
The finalists, Eugene Wen, Steve Eer, William Tan, Wengdyy Ooi, and Brian Chew, will each be given 20 minutes to perform onstage, and will sing their hearts out to wow judges and fans. Of course, the ultimate goal is to snag the trophy for ASQ 2016.
In order to do so, they will have to impress this year’s judging panel, made up of Royal Pirates, Bii, Nicholas Teo, and Canto-pop hitmaker Eric Kwok.
Aside from the performances, fans of the singing show will also be brought on a trip down memory lane, as the past 19 winners will be performing too. Not only will they relive their win with their classic hits, the champions will also be debuting a string of new songs.
While some of them are pursuing different passions, several of them are still active in the industry, most notably, Christopher Lay (1998), Winnie Ho (2000), Eric Lim (2001), Nicholas Teo (2002), Peace Teo (2010), Geraldine Gan (2011), Nicole Lai (2012), and Uriah See (2014). Regardless, we’ll be seeing them reunited on stage once again.
Here are the event deets:
- Date: 31st December (Saturday)
- Time: 8pm – 12am
- Venue: Central Park, Desa ParkCity
The concert will also be broadcasted live on Astro Wah Lai Toi (Channel 311/HD Channel 310), Astro Fiesta (Channel 996/HD Channel 998), and MY FM from 8pm onwards. All Astro subscribers will also have free access to Astro Fiesta ’til the end of the year, so there’s no excuse not to tune in ;)
