When I knew that Bon Iver would perform in Asia including Singapore, the only seats that were left were those in the outermost circle of The Star Performing Arts Theatre. I asked A to come with me and we planned a little getaway. So we bought the tickets, the cheapest ones, because we knew it wouldn’t be wild-o-everybody-sings-along kind of concert. We thought we could even just sit and close our eyes. Fortunately, we were right (except that I didn’t really close our eyes and enjoyed the lighting).
Fortunately, they were really really awesome.
They played the favorites of For Emma, Forever Ago (2007) and Bon Iver, Blood Bank (2009), and Bon Iver, Bon Iver (2011). The only song I hoped they’d play but they didn’t was ‘Wisconsin’. However, they played Roslyn, even without St. Vincent. Beautiful. :’)
And yes, we lazily strolled around China Town having kaya toast and tea in the morning. Walked around Garden by The Bay. Ate Indian halal food in around Arab St. I even did some book shopping.
Yes, couple who share Nasi Briyani, stay together! :9
