Concerts are being announced left, right, and center in Jakarta this year, with English singer-songwriter Calum Scott joining the ever-expanding list of gigs in the capital.
Scott will take the stage on Oct. 25 at Bengkel Space SCBD, South Jakarta as part of the Asia leg for his world tour, Bridges, to promote his upcoming second studio album of the same name. The Asia tour will kick off in Tokyo on Oct. 18, and aside from Jakarta, he’s also scheduled to perform in Manila (Oct. 20), Bangkok (Oct. 22), KL (Oct. 27), and Singapore (Oct. 28).
The 33-year-old singer will perform songs from Bridges as well as some of his hits, which we predict will include You Are The Reason and his cover of Robyn’s 2010 hit Dancing on My Own. Long-time fans of Scott probably know that he rose to fame for this cover, which he posted on his YouTube, and for performing the song at Britain’s Got Talent in 2015.
Scott greeted his Indonesian fans in a video posted by PK Entertainment, one of the promoters of the Jakarta concert.
Scott says that it feels “so incredible” to announce his Asia tour.
“It’s been a long time coming and a lot of planning but after the last few years we’ve had, you can just tell how excited people are for live music again and I’m so happy to be a part of it,” Scott said in a statement.
“I am coming back with my band to play the songs that people discovered me on, as well as new songs from my second album which I would say is my best and most personal work yet — I can’t wait to see you there.”
The general admission tickets are priced at IDR900,000 (US$61.81) apiece before tax and fee. Tickets presale will go on Tuesday, June 14 at 10am to Wednesday, June 15 before general ticket sales commence at 10am on the same date on the Jakarta concert’s official website.
