On December 9th and 10th, SNSD performed in Singapore for the third leg of their 2nd Asia Tour. On both nights, the Singapore Indoor Stadium was completely flooded with SONEs from all across Asia to see nine ladies do what they do best.
[media-heavy post ahead!]
SNSD opened both concerts with a series of rhetorical “sowoneul malhaebwa”s that resonated across the vast reach of the stadium, followed by the swells of a heavy drumbeat rhythm that emphasised the nine ladies’ every step and overpowering presence, before the song ultimately crescendoed into the long-awaited cry from Tiffany, “Singapore, put it back on!” And that was only the beginning.
This dramatic opening was followed by songs from their Japanese album, older hits and favourites, and sensational solo stages.
It was the first time that ‘The Boys’ was added to the tour’s setlist, and despite a few changes here and there, the girls still performed a staggering total of 32 songs, which kept the audience engaged and excited and fervently beating those pink light sticks throughout the entire night.
Regardless of language, both nights prompted fan chants (listen to that GG!) that were deafening, raw and relentless, an impassioned collective cry that hauled the already alive atmosphere into an even more intense state, and undoubtedly gave the girls the much needed energy to keep performing.
Of course, a Soshi concert isn’t really a Soshi concert without its moments.
Fan events are an opportunity for thousands of fans to collectively show love, appreciation and support for SNSD. After the return of Korea’s girl group, the Seoul concerts in July saw two special events organised by K-SONEs which caught all SNSD members off guard and even brought them to tears. In Taipei, various events (including pink ribbons, pink balloons, green light messages being written out in the sea of pink, and paper messages) were carried out over the span of three days, again drawing out a delighted response from the girls.
This time around, two events were planned (which you can read about in detail here). Unfortunately, the Pink Kallang Wave was unsuccessful, but was redeemed by the success of the paper message fan project. At the end of ‘Complete,’ SONEs held up paper messages, in unison, that read “소녀시대 makes our lives Complete“. The heartfelt gesture moved Taeyeon and Jessica to tears.
The Singapore concerts were hugely successful, not only for tickets selling out within hours and the huge response during both shows, but especially because of the girls’ spectacular performance. SNSD will continue their tour in Hong Kong on January 15th 2012.
I hope everyone who went had a great time~ Tell us about your experience in the comments!

The HUGE Metallic Cube that SNSD appeared in at the beginning of the concert is the ALL SPARK!!! No wonder Megatron and Optimus Prime are all looking for it.
And those Light Sticks serve a magical purpose, whether people are aware of it or not. Those light sticks are used to connect with the collective energy of SNSD and the SONEs. By waving it back and forth, they are channeling energy towards SNSD. By waving it side to side, they are creating a vibrational effect like a tuning fork. By waving it in sync with everyone there, we get to join into the rhythm of the energy flow there. That is why those of us without light sticks would feel there is something missing in joining with the full flow of energy in the place. All this is in accordance with the principles of how a magic wand works. Lol!
Everyone was casting IMPERIO (Harry Potter trance spell) on everyone else with the light sticks at the concert, LOL!
With SNSD, the spell has a different name. It is called: SOSHIFY!!!
LOL….oh you are so creative…..
and dont forget the ultimate spell which is
지금은 소녀시대 앞으로도 소녀시대 영원히 소녀시대 !!!!
jigeum-eun sonyeosidae ap-eurodo sonyeosidae yeong-wonhi sonyeosidae !!!!
Right Now It’s Sonyeosidae From Now On Sonyeosidae Forever It’s Sonyeosidae !!!!

Wow, really heavy videos and photos. My IE was crashed… Need to use Firefox to open this page. Nice jobs for consolidation the news of our ladies’ concert in Singapore. Looking forward to the Hong Kong concert in coming Jan 🙂
Btw, did you know that Tiffany, Jessica and Yoona have official Facebook accounts?
Will you be at the HK concert?
None of the girls have any personal social networking accounts. Those Facebook accounts are definitely fake.
Sayangnyee xdpt pergi konsert ni : (
i think i’ll just bring over the comment i made in the press conference article. hehe.
“…it felt so magical. i really, really wished i could go for both nights but i guess it’s okay now. i feel like i’ve gotten a lot closer to them after seeing them in the flesh. they were downright amazing from start to end and i teared up when they performed “complete”. the pink ocean seemed as if it were swaying along with the emotion in the song.
i feel so proud of snsd. haha, i think my loyalty and utmost respect just went 10 levels up!”
even now, as i type this and watch the different fancams, i get goosebumps. it was just SO MUCH FUN!
can you upload the pictures with mediafire link please?
Thank you catfatcat for the posting….
Dang talk about a ridiculous mega post! Nice job Cat!
Erm.Just giving my opinion.Don’t you guys think that TaeYeon and Tiffany ‘s outfit were a little too expose?I just think that maybe they should take care.
this is really heavy media….
gonna watch it!
SNSD, fighting! ^^
as much as i appreciate a long post, this was way too long. especially when it’s mostly videos. this stopped my firefox twice and almost crashed my laptop. definitely lagged it to hell. thank you for compiling this post but could you please split it into at least 3 parts so it doesn’t slow my laptop down so much?
Any better? If not, I’ll keep cutting down the number of videos.
still a little slow but definitely better than before. thank you so much.
I had such a wonderful time
The most unforgettable night of my life
I’m suffering from withdrawal 😥
