AT LEAST, that’s what the organisers for the grand opening celebrations for Ion Orchard are promising.
And they’re kicking off with a concert by erstwhile American Idol winner and current country-pop star Carrie Underwood. (above)
Ever since winning that show in 2004, Carrie’s been going from strength to strength, with a No 1 album, Carnival Ride, to her name. Earlier this year, she was named the Academy of Country Music’s Entertainer of the Year. No mean feat for a relative newbie. She’s the first woman to gain such as honour since 2001.
Carrie’s concert will start at 7.30pm next Friday (Oct 16), and it’s the first in a series of events celebrating the opening of Ion Orchard, which will culminate in a street party on Oct 23, featuring international music sensation Wang Lee Hom as well as other international artistes.
Just who those “international artistes” are, they won’t say yet, but they did promise that it’s going to be a rockin’ party.
We’ll know more as the days go by, and we’ll definitely keep you in the know as well.
Until then, keep watching this space.
