“I am here to do one thing,” he dramatically proclaimed.
“Everything that’s been troubling you five minutes ago – I’m here to make you forget (them)”.
Each member has a task
Other than Tablo, the other two members of the trio each had a task on Saturday (23 Sep).
For Mithra Jin, he made sure to get fans screaming. He definitely succeeded. Maybe even with flying colours.
At the encore segment, Tablo specifically called out two gentlemen, who knew exactly when, and what to scream out for during Born Hater (2014), as if a cathartic release.
Yes, the part with the profanities. Perhaps the crowd was a stressed-out bunch.
For DJ Tukutz, his task was “to make the world dance”.
Leading by example, he danced a snippet of Somi’s Fast Forward (2023) in the middle of the set. This was during a rare moment when he was not manning the DJ booth.
Epik High sure know how to entertain – through their high-octane hits or their between-song chatter.
Epik High on spraying water at their audience
“This is not the typical Epik High venue,” Tablo said.
Usually, they perform in theatres or expo halls. So it’s understandable that they need to keep things toned down – like dousing the crowd with water.
But in Singapore, they get to let loose and go wild. According to Tablo himself, local staff told him to “spray as much water as you wish”.
It’s become a trademark of their show. It’s as if you did not attend an Epik High concert if there was no water spraying.
The trio were generous in spraying water into the all-standing crowd, opening bottle after bottle as they delivered blazing rap verses.
