Local band The Sam Willows held their first solo concert in Singapore to a screaming crowd of 2,500 fans at The Coliseum, Hard Rock Hotel Singapore, on 22 July.
The Take Heart Tour, named after their 2016 debut album ‘Take Heart”, is a milestone for the band. Since their debut on YouTube in 2012, they have grown to become a jewel in the crown of Singapore’s music scene with multiple accolades such as becoming the first Spotify Spotlight Artist in Asia.
Praises for the The Sam Willows’ Take Heart Tour include
Last night [at the concert], they cemented their place as one of Singapore’s most successful musical exports in recent times.
The night continued its glum drizzle but no one took notice — and why should they? The nation’s most-treasured homegrown act, The Sam Willows, was seizing their inaugural stage with poppy dance moves and an 18-track set to a cheering crowd of teenybopper millennials.
In short, all of these factors culminated into one heck of a night. With each song, the crowd’s obvious adoration for the quartet rose, and by the end of the 2-hour long concert, they were screaming for more.
Here’s a look at what went on that night:
