STRFKR 8 Oc­to­ber at Ali­wal Arts Cen­tre

Pro­nounced ex­actly as it is spelled, STRFKR is an Amer­i­can in­die rock-synth pop band that, like its name, blends two con­trast­ing worlds—happy, high-energy melodies and beats with dark, heavy and some­times mor­bid lyrics. They are known for putting on quite the show, so be pre­pared for au­dio trips that take you on a jour­ney to find one’s place in the uni­verse, com­plete with as­tro­nauts and in­tox­i­cat­ing rhythms that will

leave you in a trance.

BACK­STREET BOYS 21 Oc­to­ber at the Sin­ga­pore Na­tional Sta­dium

Can you be­lieve it has been over two decades since Nick Carter, Kevin Richard­son, Brian Lit­trell, AJ McLean and Howie Dor­ough first stole our hearts? It is time to sing your lungs out like it’s 1997 again be­cause the Back­street Boys will be in town—in con­junc­tion with the 2017 WTA Fi­nals—for one epic night of good ol’ pop mu­sic by the best­selling boy band in his­tory. Back­street’s back, al­right.

NIDAROSDOMENS GUTTEKOR 20-21 Oc­to­ber at Es­planade Con­cert Hall

One of Europe’s most suc­cess­ful choirs, with a his­tory that dates back to the 11th cen­tury, the Nidarosdomens Cathe­dral Men and Boys Choir is putting on a show of tra­di­tional and clas­si­cal works with Sin­ga­pore’s first pro­fes­sional cham­ber orches­tra, re:SOUND. One such com­po­si­tion is Gi­a­como Puc­cini’s haunt­ingly beau­ti­ful “Messa di Glo­ria”, while or­gan ac­com­pa­ni­ment cour­tesy of the ac­claimed Magne Draa­gen prom­ises to en­chant as it buoys some of the strong­est voices in the world.
