2PM Hands Up Asia Tour in Singapore – 19th November 2011 was certainly an unforgettable night for everyone who was present at the concert. Held at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, it was 2PM’s first HOTTEST solo concert in Singapore, brought to you by HYPE Records. It turned out to be a whopping success with close to 7,000 fans cheering continuously for 2PM throughout the concert.
As soon as the concert started, the stadium was painted in a sea of green with lighted cheering sticks (clappers) sponsored with courtesy by the official presenter, Starhub. The 6 beastly men started off the concert with songs from their latest Hands Up album, which definitely hyped up the whole atmosphere in the stadium. They threw a mind-blowing performance of ‘Hot‘, followed by ‘Electricity‘ and ‘Hands Up‘, displaying their high-energy throughout the songs. Not forgetting that the boys actually filmed their Hands Up music video right here in Singapore during May this year too!
The boys continued with ‘Crazy for U‘ and ‘Tired of Waiting‘ before they proceeded on with their solo acts on stage. The first being a collaboration stage of ‘Beside U‘ by JunHo and Woo Young, as they impressed fans with their synchronized dance moves, earning the roaring cheers from the audience.
After a self-introduction of themselves, the members sat on the chairs provided on stage and serenaded the fans with ‘I Can’t‘, a song with a sweet melody and tune attached to it. They had the entire stadium of fans waving and singing along with them too!
The boys also performed ‘Give It To Me‘ and ‘Dance2Night‘ before Taecyeon and Nichkhun retreated backstage awhile to prepare for their shared solo-stage, ‘My Valentine‘. While the both of them were changing backstage, the rest of the members took over the stage and kept the fans entertained with Woo Young showcasing a short dance, Junsu singing an early Christmas song and Junho & Chansung posing in their cutesy self.
When it was his turn for solo-stage, Chansung, the youngest member of 2PM, flaunted his martial arts skill and amazed the audience with his quick and dynamic sword moves. As for Junsu (Jun.K), we certainly saw a different side of him as he performed his solo-album track ‘Alive‘. Oh yes, everyone had to agree that he put on a charismatic stage that night!
On top of that, 2PM also performed their popular hits such as ‘I’ll Be Back‘, ‘I Hate U‘, ‘Back2U‘, ‘10 out of 10‘, ‘Again and Again‘, ‘I’m Your Man‘ and ‘Don’t Stop Can’t Stop‘. During their ‘Only You‘ performance, the boys were seen going around the stage providing much fan service and giving out red roses to fans in the three mosh pit zones. Before the concert came to a close, we finally got the chance to watch the ‘zombie-like‘ & ‘pyramid‘ dance movements from the much anticipated performance ‘Heartbeat‘.
With the fans chanting “2PM! 2PM! 2PM!” for an encore stage, the boys returned back up on stage again with a song for their Hottests, ‘Thank U‘. It was truly a heart-warming scene seeing them expressing their gratitude to all fans in the stadium who came for their concert. A remix performance of ‘10 out of 10‘ & ‘Hands Up‘ concluded the concert with confetti in the air. Though 2PM Hands Up Concert in Singapore had came to an end, Hottests may have something to look forward to in 2012. Added Nichkhun, “We may be coming back for another concert next year! I had fun and I love you guys!“
