Michael Learns to Rock to perform in Singapore on 9 September this year

SINGAPORE — Save the date! Don’t miss the electrifying LIVE concert by Danish rock band Michael Learns to Rock (MLTR) at Our Tampines Hub on 9 September, starting at 8 pm.

Organized by Dementia Singapore, this remarkable fundraising concert will be held at the OTH Town Square, marking their first-ever event featuring an international act.

Formed back in 1988, the band soared to tremendous international success in the 1990s with unforgettable chart-topping hits like “The Actor,” “25 Minutes,” “Paint My Love,” and “Sleeping Child.”

The band last performed in Singapore at The Star Theatre in October 2022 and November 2018.

MLTR’s popularity among Singaporeans makes them the perfect choice to headline this concert dedicated to people with dementia, says Mr Jason Foo, chief executive of Dementia Singapore.

He also highlighted how MLTR’s music resonates with individuals in their 40s and 50s, coinciding with the rising cases of young-onset dementia within these age groups.

Leveraging nostalgia as a powerful tool, Dementia Singapore aims to engage and support people with dementia and their caregivers.

“Good music is a great connector,” Mr. Foo adds. “Having a well-known international act like MLTR to spread the message of support for Singapore’s fast-growing community of people with dementia goes a long way in breaking down the associated stigma, stemming from a lack of awareness and discomfort in addressing the issue.”

He explained that the concert’s location in the heartlands of Singapore emphasizes the importance of inclusiveness.

Dementia Singapore’s goal is to promote inclusiveness through this unique fundraising initiative, ensuring that individuals living with dementia, their caregivers, and other Singaporeans can come together and enjoy the concert as one.

Before the concert kicks off, a pre-concert carnival will take place at the venue from 10am to 3:30pm.

The carnival, which is free for everyone, will feature food stalls, rides, and various activities.

The carnival is open to members of Dementia Singapore’s CARA app, but non-members can sign up free of charge either by downloading the app from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store or by registering at the carnival entrance on the day of the event.

All proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to Dementia Singapore

All proceeds from ticket sales for the Michael Learns To Rock Live In Singapore concert will be donated to Dementia Singapore.

Ticket prices range from S$68 (CAT 5) to S$168 (CAT 1) and can be purchased via All Access Asia starting from 12 July at 11am.

Early birds can take advantage of a 15% discount if they purchase their tickets between 12 July and 18 July, 11:59 pm.
