SMTOWN Live World Tour III has finally hit the shores of Singapore on 23 November! Despite the massive thunderstorm before concert, determined fans stood unshaken and lined up for this epic 4-hour concert. Some even started to queue from as early as a week ago!
The concert kicked started with f(x)’s title song, ‘Hot Summer’. Then Kangta took centre stage and sang his Chinese solo, ’爱频率’. While new addition to the family, EXO-K and EXO-M shared the stage to perform ‘History’ and ‘Mama’, fans also got to relive older songs of their favourite groups such as ‘No.1’, ‘Rising Sun’, ‘Kissing You’, ‘Sorry Sorry’ and ‘Love like Oxygen’.
Not to mention, there were also many special stages prepared. First of all, Victoria and Zhou Mi did a duet cover on 今天你要嫁给我, followed by a performance of Carlifornia Girls by the Jung Sisters, Jessica and Krystal. Then, Changkyu (Chang Min and KyuHyun) serenaded ‘Just The Way You Are’ to a lucky fan girl selected from the moshpit.
Later, TaeTiSeo also did a collaboration with EXO members, while Key, Amber and Kris teamed up to perform ‘Like A G6’. Jonghyun and Taemin’s special stage of ‘Internet War’ was definitely one of the highlights of the night! Featuring topless Jonghyun seducing the crowd with his toned abs and JongTae flirting openly on stage, fans were screaming and squealing on the top of their lungs!
What made this SMTOWN extra special was that TVXQ! performed their latest single, ‘Humanoids’ for the first time! And this was done before the single was even officially released worldwide! BoA too switched her dance partner for ‘Only One’ to Sehun instead of the regular, Taemin. YOUNIQUE also performed MAXSTEP together with the dance battle led by Yunho.
When BoA started performing her latest single, ‘Only One’, rain started to fall again. However, this did not stop f(x) and SHINee from continuing their performance on the extended stage. But it was during Super Junior’s ‘Sexy, Free and Single’ that the rain started pouring. But loyal fans remained in their seats and witnessed TVXQ! perform ‘Catch Me’ in their bare back shirts under the rain.
Thankfully, the rain tuned down when the entire SMTOWN artistes came out to bid their goodbyes with ‘Hope’. With this being the first concert held at The Float@ Marina Bay and fans all leaving soaked in rain, this was definitely a historical and epic concert that is hard to forget.
