This year’s turning out to be a huge year for performances, and we’re totally spoilt for choice.
From legends to newbies to festival-goers, there’s something for everyone this year.
Now, we at MustShareNews believe that good things should be shared, so here are the concerts you should consider attending this year:
1. Sam Smith
There’s great news for Sam Smith’s local fans, because it has been announced that he’ll be playing a second night at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.
Tickets to his first show on 2 October sold out incredibly quickly, leading to the addition of a second show here.
If you didn’t manage to get your hands on tickets for the first show, there’s still a chance to get tickets to his second concert on 3 Oct.
Tickets will be going on sale 8 May at 10am. Be prepared to fork out between $128 to $348 each, for the best seats in the house.
Remember to be quick, because tickets to his first show sold out almost instantly.
After almost 5 years, Paramoreare finally put out a new album.
If you thought that was Paramore’s only gift to fans, think again, because they’re also going on tour.
They’ll be coming to Singapore on their After Laughter tour, named after their latest album.
Adding on priority entry will set you back an additional $20.
If you plan on heading for the concert with your friends, purchase a minimum of three tickets together to get $10 off.
August looks like it’s going to be a happening month with another concert — and Halsey’s set to take the stage this time around.

5. Celine Dion
After more than 30 years of performing her hit songs, Celine Dion is finally coming to our shores for a concert.
We can’t believe it’s taken her this long to play a show here.
In a recent interview with Channel NewsAsia, she promised that if her fans send her a list of songs they want to hear, she’ll play them at her show here.
So start writing your letters to Celine Dion, because she’ll be playing two shows here, on 3-4 July, at the Marina Bay Sands Grand Ballroom.
Tickets are going for anywhere between $150 and $1,200 each. We know, prices are kinda steep.
Head over to Marina Bay Sand’s website at 10am on 10 May to get your tickets, before all the cheaper ones are snapped up.

We thought we were #blessed when we found out Celine Dion’s performing here but it keeps getting better.

That’s right, live in Singapore. Excuse us while we scream internally.

We can’t wait to be living our best life at Queen Mariah’s concert.

Tween hearts shattered into a million pieces when news broke that One Direction was splitting up.
However, things are looking up, as Niall Horan is on tour, and he’ll be heading to our island pretty soon.
Sure, it’s not the same thing as having One Direction reunited, but one is better than none, right?
