2018 has kicked off to a good start with some amazing concerts – namely Jacky Cheung, Imagine Dragons, and John Legend. But there’s more to come…

Yes, we’re pretty stoked about OneRepublic, Bruno Mars, Dua Lipa, Wanna One, Twice, and EXO. However, there is still a long list of Southeast Asian tours that haven’t (yet) included Malaysia in their pitstops.

1. Brian McKnight

R&B singer-songwriter Brian McKnight will be bringing his intimate concert to Jakarta on 28th and 29th April, before visiting Singapore’s Hard Rock Cafe on 1st May. Known for his smooth vocals, calming melodies and romantic lyrics, the crooner will be promoting his latest record, “Genesis”.

2. Harry Styles

Due to overwhelming demand, Harry Styles added 56 more shows to his sold-out tour. Following his previous visit last November, the Brit will be returning to Singapore to perform at Singapore Indoor Stadium on 3rd May.

3. Niall Horan

Fellow One Direction member Niall Horan will also be visiting Singapore the following month. The 1D heartthrob’s “Flicker” Southeast Asia also includes Manila and Tokyo. Fans can expect him to perform singles “This Town” and “Slow Hands” during the show.

4. Celine Dion

Celine Dion will be touring the Asia-Pacific region for 3 months, starting from late June onwards. Unfortunately for Malaysian fans, Kuala Lumpur was not included in Dion’s pitstops this time around. The last time she performed in our country was during her “Taking Chances World Tour” back in 2008.

5. GOT7

GOT7 just cant be stopped! After their comeback earlier this year, the 7-member K-pop announced that they will be travelling to Bangkok, Taipei, Jakarta, before touring South America and North America. Their 2 pitstops this August are in Singapore and Hong Kong.

After spending more than 2 decades in the music industry, Irish boyband Boyzone proves that the group is still going strong. In celebration of their 25th anniversary, Ronan Keating, Keith Duffy, Mikey Graham, and Shane Lynch will be taking fans down memory lane at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on 21 August.

8. Paramore

Paramore was forced to cancelled their Jakarta concert in February when lead vocalist Hayley Williams suffered a throat and upper-respiratory infection. However, the pop-rock trio are ready to bounce back. Paramore will be performing in Jakarta on 25th August. Before that, the group is scheduled to visit Japan and Philippines.

Side note: If Jakarta is too far for you, there’s a nearer option as Paramore will be coming to Singapore as well.

9. Sam Smith

Out of all the concerts mentioned, this particular event is probably the biggest let down. When the Grammy winner announced that he is coming to Asia for his “The Thrill Of It All” 2018 tour, none of his 6 Southeast Asian tour dates included Malaysia. Besides Singapore, the singer will also be performing in Bangkok, Manila, Seoul, and Tokyo.

10. Mariah Carey

The elusive diva Mariah Carey is set to perform in one of the most unique locations ever. The legendary songstress will be entertaining audiences at the world heritage Borobudur Temple compound in Magelang, Central Java, Indonesia.

Side note: What amazing news! Just recently, PR Worldwide announced that Mimi will be extending her concert to Malaysia. Save your airfare, cause we’ll get to watch her performance here on 16th October. Details here.
