Seats Increased To 23,000 With 14 New Venues

We have gone a distance since our bands and singers appeared at the Singapore Badminton Hall and National Theatre in the 60's. According to The Straits Times 'Life' section (13.02.09) the country will have 14 more concert venues when the Integrated Resorts (IR) are completed with 23,000 spanking new seats.

Hopefully the authorities will not forget our own music makers of yesteryears and allow them the opportunity to organise concerts and perform their pop classics as such gatherings have proved successful in the past.
