Reigning queen of R&B Alicia Keys will headline a brand-new New Year’s Eve countdown party concept on the last day of this year. Rock On! 2017 will take place at The Float @ Marina Bay on 31st December, 2016.
The veteran performer is currently serving as a judge on the 11th season of American singing competition The Voice, and was last here in Singapore back in 2004. The singer-songwriter recently released her sixth studio album, “Here”, featuring an understated and stripped-down image.
Organised by IMC Live Group, the ticketed event will also feature Taiwanese singer Rainie Yang, Malaysian Mandopop artist Penny Tai, as well as local acts such as Shirlyn & The UnXpected, Joi Chua, and Chriz Tong. Another international act will be announced soon.
Aside from Keys, the mostly Mandopop-leaning lineup bears the marks of IMC Live Group, who are also behind Taiwanese singer/actress Angela Zhang‘s concert stop here in Singapore on 18 November 2016.
The ticketed concert is a marked change from previous years, where countdown celebrations are organised by Mediacorp. The event is slated to run from 5PM to 1AM, featuring “an eight-minute magnificent fireworks at the stroke of midnight”.
Ticket sales will begin at 10AM on Friday, 18th November 2016 via online booking at www.apactix.com and Singpost offices islandwide. Catch all these artists and more at $48/$68/$118/$158/$218, plus booking fee.
