So Mayday performed for close to 1 hour 50 minutes last night! My friends are still suffering from Mayday withdrawal symptoms. My brother was blown away by Mayday. Even my father was impressed.
The set list consisted of many classic Mayday rock hits. It served as a comprehensive ‘Mayday introduction’ to people who watched Mayday’s live performance for the first time last night. Mayday seized the opportunity to showcase their music to a mainly ‘international’ and ‘non-Mayday-fans’ crowd. I believe that some people were converted into Mayday fans after a close to 2 hours sensational live performance by the boys.
While Mayday has been around for 15 years and has truckloads of fans in East Asia, they are still pretty ‘underrated’ in Singapore. Usually Mayday’s concert will be sold out for the first night but not the second night. This is probably due to the fact that Singapore has a much smaller population and there is a more diverse range of interests in music amongst Singaporeans. In comparison, it is common for Mayday to have numerous sold-out concerts in Taiwan, Hong Kong and mainland China. Thus, it is usually much easier to secure concert tickets in Singapore. Hopefully, more Singaporeans will start to appreciate Mayday music after F1! And maybe it will be more difficult to secure Mayday tickets in Singapore in the future…
Oh well, I wish I were at Padang with Mayday last night. I will make sure that I am in Singapore when the boys visit Singapore next time…勾勾手盖手印这一刻有约定…

The ever poetic Ashin wrote a nice FB post about his thoughts about F1, Mayday and Singapore.
