Performing in Singapore for the very first time, Ms. Hill’s show will be one of the most highly anticipated performances of the year, fittingly as her monumental album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, hailed as “one of the most incredible albums ever made”, marks its 20th anniversary in 2018.

Setting the scene for party-goers, the electric atmosphere of The Late Show indoors at Sands Expo and Convention Centre will be designed as an intimate concert arena (complete with VIP tables), taking the late-night experience till 4am on both Friday 6 and Saturday 7 April.

Director of The Late Show, Robbie Hoyes-Cock adds, “Following the success of the inaugural Late Show party in 2017, the venue for 2018 has been dramatically expanded as we look to accommodate more superstar acts in a nightclub-styled space, offering an up close and personal experience for VIP Table buyers.”
