Taylor Swift’s extended Singapore tour has fans clamoring for a school break
As American pop idol Taylor Swift added performances to her three-day Singapore tour, some of her fans called on Education Minister Chan Chun Sing to declare school holidays for her concert dates, prompting a response from her minister.
Taylor Swift will add three nights to her Singapore tour early next year, joining British rockers Coldplay for six dates in January. As requests for school holidays came in the days of Taylor Swift’s concert, Minister Chan Chun Sing challenged his fans against the school holidays.
«I hear you,» Chan wrote on Facebook on Friday.
“How does it feel? If some creative and enterprising fan can get him (or, frankly, another A-name) to perform at their school for free, we can promote your school for the school holidays?!
Then everyone can enjoy this comprehensive concert! Taylor Swift is doubling her concert dates, her promoters have announced. That’s even before ticket sales for his first three shows even started in March.
A limited pre-sale to local bank cardholders will begin on July 5, and the public will get a chance two days later. Singapore is the only Southeast Asian stop on Swift’s «Eras Tour.»
Taylor Swift has extended her Singapore tour with extra nights, following a similar pattern to Coldplay, which added concerts last week due to high demand.
The newly added dates for both artists sold out in less than three hours, prompting concert promoter Live Nation to hint at the possibility of giving away more tickets.
Concert fever is helping to reheat the MICE sector – meetings, incentives, conferences, exhibitions – a sector that is a boon to the host’s blissful city-state. And it got local politicians excited about the knock-on effects of a post-Covid economy.
