When I first heard of the headliners for the 2016 Formula 1 Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix, I was completely sold when I saw Kylie on the list; I bought my tickets right then. LOL.
It’s been 5 years since I watched Kylie my queen performed live on the Aphrodite Les Folis Tour back in 2011 in Perth and Singapore. Kylie was supposed to perform in KL in 2012 and I booked all my flights and hotel just to find out that her performance was cancelled just a couple of weeks before my departure. So this makes it my 4th Kylie concert; but it will never be enough.
Kylie came on stage at 11.15 pm and played for about 1.5 hours. Here is her set list last night:
- Better The Devil You Know
- Love You
- In Your Eyes
- On A Night Like This
- Step Back In Time
- Spinning Around
- Your Disco Needs You
- I Believe In You (acoustic)
- Get Outta My Way
- Can’t Get You Out Of My Head
- I Should Be So Lucky
- Love At First Sight
- All The Lovers
- ENCORE: Into The Blue
Kylie managed 3 costume changes throughout her performance. And if memory serves me right, she is the only headliner at the Singapore Grand Prix that did a costume change. I don’t think Katy Perry did that even. Katy might have added/removed pieces of material to what she was wearing but I don’t remember full costume changes the way Queen Kylie did.
This is the first year where the location of the Padang stage was moved. I like it actually. Even though it is a lot wider at the side, more people can get nearer to the stage. I also like how the fan zone was divided into a few sections so as to avoid the human crush during the concert. Then again, this wasn’t a true concert setting in the sense where some people were here for the F1 festivities as well so the audience wasn’t 100% Kylie crazy. The difference was apparent coz I did see people who were just standing motionless throughout the concert (like why??).
Anyway, I enjoyed myself and that’s all that really matters. Haha.
Here are some more photos which turned out pretty decent from the Kylie concert at the 2016 Formula 1 Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix last night:
