That's right, Singapore Indoor Stadium will host the talented artists on the 2nd June 2018, meaning this is the best moment for you to buy Mayday Singapore tickets and attend their anticipated concert. Indeed, it's already been 8 years since the alternative rock group played at this admirably large venue! The National Stadium is undoubtedly now one of the icons of Singapore and provides incredible views of the waterfront and futuristic skyline. Not only will it give Mayday the space needed for their signature stage production - which features plenty of stage transformations, LED panels and spire buildings - but it will also enable more fans to see the stars as they play live. Quick, don't let this opportunity slip through your fingers! At StubHub you can both buy and sell Mayday tickets, this way ensuring none are gone to waste.
The band's background
Mayday has been shaped by some of the most renowned rock artists of all time; particularly from the Beatles. The Taiwanese rockers are at the forefront of what has been dubbed the "Chinese Invasion", a reference to the "British Invasion" of the 1960s, signalling the increasing influence of Chinese music in Western pop culture. Other artists taking over include Hong Kong's Jacky Cheung, Taiwan's Amei or Mandarin superstar Jay Chou.
Their debut album Mayday's First Album (1999) was responsible for making the band reach the spotlight. With massive hit songs like "Racing Car", "Peter and Mary" and "Embrace", it was not long before Mayday concerts earned the reputation of always being sold-out. In fact, the stars are able to boast of breaking Taiwan's record for the largest number of attending fans, a record previously held by Michael Jackson!
Choosing to sing in Mandarin and the local Hokkien dialect, their music can be described as a blend of garage rock and midtempo love ballads, also incorporating Western musical influences. The band has won numerous awards, including four "Golden Melody Award for Best Musical Group"! Having released their ninth album History of Tomorrow in 2016, Mayday are proving that, very much like wine, they only get better with time! Mayday is set to play yet more concerts throughout 2018 and tour tickets can be found right here, at StubHub.
