Siti Nurhaliza's Concert In Singapore Tipped For Sellout
SINGAPORE March 4 - Malaysia's hugely popular Siti Nurhaliza is expected to attract a sellout crowd in her first ever concert in Singapore on March 18.
Already, all 70 of the most expensive seats costing S$300 each, even higher than the S$260 top-priced ticket to watch international pop diva Mariah Carey, appearing here on March 13, have been snapped up.
Tickets costing S$100 have also been sold out and the remaining priced at S$120, S$80 and S$50 were going very well, said Mohamed Kamal Musa, director at KG Productions which is organising the concert.
"The sellout of the S$300 tickets was a surprise. We took a gamble. The good response to the concert shows that she is very popular and we are expecting a sellout concert," he said.
The tickets are the most expensive for a concert by an Asian singer here. Holders of the S$300 tickets will have the chance to attend a photo-and-cocktail session with the singer.
Apart from Singaporeans, the concert has also attracted many Malaysians and KG Productions has also received enquiries from Brunei for a block reservation, said Mohamed Kamal.
The 21-year-old Siti, known for her wide repertoire of modern pop and traditional Malay numbers, will be singing at the Harbour Pavilion at the World Trade Centre which seats up to 5,000.
She is expected to perform 27 songs in a two-hour show including those from her latest album, Sahmura.
Siti herself was here on Feb 29 to launch the concert and meet fans.
