Concert News: ChthoniC 閃靈 To Perform In Singapore This August

Taiwanese Symphonic Black metal band, ChthoniC 閃靈, is coming to Singapore this August to bring their unholy brand of political desecration to Republic Polytechnic!

Exact ticket prices are not known yet, but have been estimated to be around S$50+. For those new to Singapore, or who are hardcore ChthoniC 閃靈 fans who will be coming all the way to Singapore this August for the band's virgin performance here, the address to Republic Polytechnic is as follows: 9 Woodlands Ave 9, Singapore 738964

If you do not drive a car, are tight on cash for cabbing, or do not have anyone to drive you there, click here for routes to the venue utilizing public transport.

Tour shirts are most probably going to be available, going for maybe S$30+ for each. There will be no meet-and-greet session with fans before the concert day itself, but fans can hijack the band after their concert is over (which can be late though, because the standard time length of concerts are ~ 1 hour +, without factoring in possible technical problems beforehand and the band's post-performance fatigue).

Be wary of suffocating clouds of cigarette smoke, jostling crowds of metalheads, and pickpockets though. Everyone who waits for the band members after their concert all probably want a photograph/autograph just as much as you do.

This post will be updated as soon as more information becomes available.

UPDATE (02/06/2010): The concert will be held on 14th August, 2010. Venue will be a lecture hall in Republic Polytechnic, estimated to be around 400 tickets available for sale. Exact ticket prices not known yet, stay tuned for further updates!

UPDATE (10/06/2010): Pre-sale price for the concert tickets will be at S$55, and can be bought at 2nd-hand CD shop, Inokii: #03-30, Far East Plaza. Pre-sale will last for roughly 1 month starting from today, and door price will be at S$70, so for interested people, better get your tickets quickly. Meet-and-greet session with fans after the concert have not been confirmed yet, but hopefully there is one, I want a picture with Doris Yeh!! xP

UPDATE (21/06/2010): I just bought my ticket (and am the 27th person in Singapore to do so). The band picture printed on the ticket is the same as the one featured prominently on their MySpace page and my review of "Mirror Of Retribution", but the band logo is red in colour instead of white. It also says ChthoniC are on their Mirrror Of Retribution tour, yep, there is a typo on the ticket. Can't wait for 14th August. \m/,

UPDATE (06/08/2010): Finally, it is 1 week and 1 day more to the concert! Tickets have been completely sold out on Inokii's side by now, so for those who have yet to buy the tix, try out Hell's Labyrinth at Peninsula Plaza... or just wait until next time. :P
