On Friday, I rushed down to Plaza Singapura after work to have a quick dinner despite of the heavy rain. I had to finish my dinner quickly so that I could reach Singapore Indoor Stadium in time for the LOUD festival concert.
The concert started off indie-rock band, Soda Green (苏打绿). The lead singer, Greeny (青峰) sang a mixture of old hits such as “A Little Love Song” (小情歌) and new songs such as “Liking Loneliness” (喜欢寂寞). Not only that, the audience were greatly amused by Greeny’s jokes.
Landy was the next to make an appearance. She showcased her powerhouse vocals in an aboriginal-esque tune. What really got the crowd excited was not her sexy fast songs but her popular love ballads like “Wishing Me Happy Birthday” (祝我生日快乐) and “Fool” (傻瓜). Everyone sang along to the groovy tunes and Landy was obviously touched by that.
Local band, Ang Mo Pai (红毛派) made a special appearance too, followed by Cindy Yen (袁咏琳). She performed 3 songs, including Eminem’s “Love the Way You Lie”.
The long-awaited moment had finally arrived when Jay Chou (周杰伦) made his appearance out from a coffin. The crowd went crazy and stood up, screaming loudly for him. Not only did he sang a series of his hits, he also showcased his piano-playing skills by performing “Flight of the Bumblebee”. The most interesting song had to be the improvised rock-ballad guitar version of “Nunchaku” (双节棍).
The finale of the concert would definitely had to be Jay and Landy’s rendition of the song, “Rooftop” (屋顶). The previous duet performance by the two was like 10 years ago! With that, the concert ended with a resounding note.
