The Fray certainly are a cheeky bunch of boys, as shown in the press conference held earlier at the pint-shaped concert area set up at The Promontory @ Marina Bay.
The alternative rock band made up of four members: Issac Slade, Joe King, Dave Welsh and Ben Wysocki touched down in Singapore early yesterday morning to headline tonight’s Guinness Arthur’s Day concert.
When asked about their brand new album, the cheerful foursome told the excited crowd that they would be performing at least two to three songs. Joe added that the band were very excited to see the reaction of the fans.
Beating out other local homegrown talents, Ellipsis were chosen by The Fray to open tonight’s concert.
With “bold” being Guinness’s theme for the year, the band was asked what the boldest thing any of them had done. Issac, ever the playful one, piped up, without a hint of embarrassment in his voice told the crowd that he had once served customers in Starbucks bottomless.
“It was the last day of work at Starbucks for me … my buddy dared me to work the shift with my pants off. I wore my shirt and my green apron and my cute little underwear…” he chuckled and got up, wiggling his behind at the audience.
The band has also promised to give a small preview of their new album at the concert, so concert goers will definitely be in for a treat.
The Guinness Arthur’s Day Concert will be held tonight, September 27th 2013, to celebrate the 144th anniversary of Guinness Singapore. The concert is an exclusive event for 1759 fans who have won tickets by completing challenges set up by Guinness Singapore.
