Needless to say, I wasn’t particularly excited about being caught in the 3,500 crowd on Saturday at Fort Canning despite the thrill of seeing Foster The People live. What made this gig different from all the others I’ve been to was the energy the audience was emitting. There was a lot of complaining about the heat but once people resigned themselves to the fact that Singapore wasn’t going to lower it’s temperature anytime within that night, they started having fun and dancing along to the music played by the 2 highly energetic and vivacious DJs.
