This weekend is probably one that local music lovers have been looking forward to for several months, as singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran is set to perform on both days at the Singapore Indoor Stadium. The musician got into a bicycle accident last month and injured both his arms, forcing him to cancel gigs in Taipei, Osaka, Seoul, Tokyo and Hong Kong. The sold-out Singapore show tomorrow marks his return to the stage following that mishap. We can’t wait to hear hits such as Perfect, Shape of You and Castle on the Hill live.
Also playing tomorrow is ’80s singer Belinda Carlisle — the one behind tunes such as Heaven is a Place on Earth — at The Star Theatre. If you’re more keen on less mainstream music, do drop by the Esplanade’s ongoing Mosaic Music Series, which features a lineup of international acts such as Grammy-nominated Norwegian artist Bernhoft and Danish jazz vocalist Sinne Eeg.
