In October, we announced that Joel Tan or known as Gentle Bones will be holding his first concert at the Esplanade Hall. However, it was later announced that it was cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. It puzzled everyone as tickets were sold out. So what actually happened?
Joel was caught in a situation in Jakarta and was forbidden to leave Jakarta then. Joel was scheduled to perform in Jakarta as an opening act with Kina Granis. However, due to some problems with the performance permit, their passports were impounded. He then had to stay in Jakarta for 3.5 months. Fret not, Gentle Bones fans, a new date has been set!
Come June 10, Gentle Bones alongside .gif will be performing at the Esplanade Hall. To give an insight into the show, Gentle Bones shared, “This concert marks a huge milestone to my musical career. Months of preparations have gone into this show and I’m glad I have the opportunity to present my new music along with revisions of the old, in the beautiful Esplanade Concert Hall. Many exciting things are almost due and I’d like the people at home to be the first to experience it live.”
