Oh, i actually got to see lots of pretty fireworks at around 8 PM!!! I think they're rehearsing for some shows and the skies were ablaze! <3 6 minutes ago via TweetDeck

And he's the first performer to ever have performed in that theatre!! 7 minutes ago via TweetDeck

Oh and i think it's really sweet and full circle that he was playing at the Panteges Theatre in Universal, albeit Singapore version 7 minutes ago via TweetDeck

The horrifiic green thing at the bottom of the 2nd pic is I <3 U Adam sign that they gave us 13 minutes ago via TweetDeck

Here's me at Universal. Not putting other photos up cos my friend is in some of them http://twitpic.com/18484l http://twitpic.com/1848tg 14 minutes ago via TweetDeck

@pjd65 but i think receiving the plaque was really nice tho 19 minutes ago via TweetDeck in reply to pjd65

@pjd65 i don't think he was surprised by the gold because he wld have known how well he was selling anyways 19 minutes ago via TweetDeck in reply to pjd65

And i'm pretty sure it's well on its way to platinum thanks to SonySg's "efforts" 22 minutes ago via TweetDeck

In singapore, 6000 copies is gold, 12000 is platinum. THe album prob already hit gold before the deluxe album was released 23 minutes ago via TweetDeck

I used the sign to fan myself because I think someone forgot to turn on the airconditioning upstairs lol 24 minutes ago via TweetDeck

@FifthHouseSun he was smiling and really happy from what i could tell from the distance 25 minutes ago via TweetDeck in reply to FifthHouseSun

So much 2nd hand embarrassment 26 minutes ago via TweetDeck

oh btw, when entering Universal Studios, we were each 'gifted' with some stupid Glambert sign that says "I <3 U Adam" 26 minutes ago via TweetDeck

couldn't get any pics of him at all no thanks to Resorts World/ Universal Studios/SonySg 27 minutes ago via TweetDeck

ok i'm going to try upload a pic of me at Universal Studios lol 28 minutes ago via TweetDeck

I'm not going to even bother queuing. I'll prob just go there tomorrow to get some pictures and that's it 29 minutes ago via TweetDeck

I'm never going to forgive Sony Sg for setting up the signing at Bugis. That place is a mad house even on normal weekends 29 minutes ago via TweetDeck

trip down to that potentially hazardous zone at Bugis Junction. OMG i think they need security there and crowd control tomorrow 30 minutes ago via TweetDeck

My only regret i haven't actually been able to see how Adam looks IRL because i was too fucking far away. So i guess i have to make the (c) 31 minutes ago via TweetDeck

Questions? :P 32 minutes ago via TweetDeck

Ok that's the end of my recap! 32 minutes ago via TweetDeck

But thank you stans from the US in my feed who can appreciate talent :P xoxox 33 minutes ago via TweetDeck

shame on you America LOL 34 minutes ago via TweetDeck

And srsly, you know i'm not an idol fan and never will be, but how did this guy lose idol again? 35 minutes ago via TweetDeck

but other than that, you have to be there to experience it. All the radio recordings you've heard from Oz etc, do no justice 35 minutes ago via TweetDeck

I think the closest that the live recordings come to recording his voice adequetely would be the WLL and Broken Open recordings from FS 36 minutes ago via TweetDeck

the gorgeousness of his voice has to be experienced when you're physically there. The recordings do no justice 37 minutes ago via TweetDeck

Serriously I've heard most of the performance on videos and audio and i know it's probably ad naseum but 38 minutes ago via TweetDeck

To those stupid idol bloggers who say that he's about screeching etc etc. sorry about your life; sorry about your lack of musicality 39 minutes ago via TweetDeck

Yes pls let;s make that happen babe! RT @mian: Oh unfortunately I did not get to meet @terra_zephead but that shall happen tomorrow! 40 minutes ago via TweetDeck

I hope he never returns to theatre except for maybe one-off productions because that voice demands a global audience 42 minutes ago via TweetDeck

Anyways, omg. he's fucking amazing live. Even if you never bought his CD; you have to see him perform live 43 minutes ago via TweetDeck

Ooops lol i just realised that I put @Chrisss right at the beginning of my tweets and you might have missed some of them as a result 44 minutes ago via TweetDeck

I think this song is a pure testament to how fantastic the band is at improvisation and live jamming 45 minutes ago via TweetDeck

The build up into the song, really felt like he was taking you into a journey down to insanity and weirdness, you get the gist about 1 hour ago via TweetDeck

@Chrisss and I loved it. (It was absolutely presh and adorbs lol) But more importantly the singing was immaculate about 1 hour ago via TweetDeck

I'm sure if you'e seen the VH1 perfomrance of Down the Rabbit Hold you'll have an idea of what i mean, but this was like 3x the 'dancing' about 1 hour ago via TweetDeck

and oh my god. The build up in the song was so dramatic. He was dancing on his seat, if that were possible about 1 hour ago via TweetDeck

(much of how Zep used to turn their 'mistakes' into really nice moments of brilliance) about 1 hour ago via TweetDeck

But he reacted really quickly and improvised -- essentially turning the mistake into something fresh and interesting. (it reminds me so) about 1 hour ago via TweetDeck

It turned out to be my favourite song from the set!!! \0/ He almost messed up a line near the beginning cos his riffing ended a lil late(c) about 1 hour ago via TweetDeck

and Adam said that they were winging it because they had never performed this version live before about 1 hour ago via TweetDeck

I never expeccted them to play this song because I had assumed they would need a piano + Zach for this about 1 hour ago via TweetDeck

So fianlly they got him back and they started playing my favourite acoustic song of all, Down the Rabbit Hole!!!!!! about 1 hour ago via TweetDeck

screaming and squeeing for encore was at ridiculous levels from where i was seated. i thought i was going to go deaf about 1 hour ago via TweetDeck

So he left the stage and I was just expecting the concert to end because i had assumed we were only getting 3 and now we had 5. But the (c) about 1 hour ago via TweetDeck

i was just thinking l ike, omg can he hit that note at the end and he never failed to live toexpectations about 1 hour ago via TweetDeck

And omg the final section for that song. He completely belted it out and it was glorious about 1 hour ago via TweetDeck

It was perfect. Had the crowd squeeing. I'm glad he chose to perform this because it's easily recognisable to even the non stans. (c) about 1 hour ago via TweetDeck

Moving on to Mad World. This was the rendition whose ending we were scorned from the Marble Bar at Sydney Hilten about 1 hour ago via TweetDeck

I was too far to see it clearly though. (I am hating sony for this) about 1 hour ago via TweetDeck

(Oh side note, regarding the clothes, I _think_ he was wearing the glittery jacket from Grammys + Dior jeans from the Vevo performance about 1 hour ago via TweetDeck

@Chrisss and I LOVED especially the ending section acapella section of Broken Open. It was haunting about 1 hour ago via TweetDeck

Broken Open was amaaaazing. The sound mix was a little off; instrumentals were a little too loud but that's a minor quibble. about 1 hour ago via TweetDeck

non-stans I suspect this might be one of the most easily "digestable" songs of the repertoire about 1 hour ago via TweetDeck

hear him sing it live. His vocals were immaculate in this song and it was so emotional. I know we all like the BSC side of Adam but for (c) about 1 hour ago via TweetDeck

OMG, Sleepwalker was so amazing live. I think this song has to be at least the 4th single. I think this will be a monster when peeps (c) about 1 hour ago via TweetDeck

and @Chrisss was instrumental in helping me confirm the winning number for the CD when i made the mad dash to the CD store at 8:30PM on Wed about 1 hour ago via TweetDeck

I squeed a little when they started playing the intro chords for Sleepwalker because that was @Chrisss's favourite song in the album (c) about 1 hour ago via TweetDeck

I actually kinda guessed the set for the first 5 songs because those were the songs he played for VH1 & Australia about 1 hour ago via TweetDeck

The set list was Music Again, Whataya Want From Me, Sleepwalker, Broken Open, Mad World, Down the Rabbit Hole (encore) about 1 hour ago via TweetDeck

was invited to come and perform and they opened the set with a dance set to a mashup of Fever and FYE!!!! about 1 hour ago via TweetDeck

oh oh, b4 the deets on the performance, I was really happy that the dance school whose YouTube FYE vid was unceremoniously taken down(c) about 1 hour ago via TweetDeck

(btw, I hate tween girls who go to concerts and scream during an acoustic set. hello do i come to hear you sing or Adam?) about 1 hour ago via TweetDeck

It was an acoustic set but it felt like a full rock concert as @Chrisss will attest about 1 hour ago via TweetDeck

But the agony and wait was all worth it. Because omg that voice!!!!!!!!!! about 1 hour ago via TweetDeck

now that i've gotten that out of my system. On the plus side, i think this sponsorships made his visit a lot cheaper & budget friendly :P about 1 hour ago via TweetDeck

and there was the usual corporate sponsorship plugins throughout the event, "We'd like to thank Starhub, Resorts World blah blha" about 1 hour ago via TweetDeck

OH SINGAPORE. I KNOW YOU'RE TRYING TO PROMOTE RESORTS WORLD, YOU DON'T HAVE TO MAKE IT THAT OBVIOUS about 1 hour ago via TweetDeck

so we were left with overhanging views of the performance, while 'invited guests' who were not necessarily fans were seated downstairs about 1 hour ago via TweetDeck

theatre. The ground floor with remaining 1000 seats were for VIP ticket winners and corporates about 1 hour ago via TweetDeck

After all that fan fuckery about winning 500 tickets to an "intimate" concert, they squashed all those 500 fans onto the 2nd lvl of (c) about 1 hour ago via TweetDeck

first let me rant a little about 1 hour ago via TweetDeck
