Royston Tan's gig debuts in Central Park, New York City.
Accompanied by two of his lead actresses Mindee Ong & Yeo Yann Yann, it was Royston Tan's debut performance in front of a large scale audience and what better way to do it then in New York City's Central Park. Used to being labelled the 'bad boy of Singapore films', Royston Tan certainly did not extend that tag to his concert-style performance in which over 6000 people attended.
"Singing in Hokkien is very difficult. I have to get the intonation and accent right,' said Royston.
The filmmaker performed a getai (in Hokkien no less) for his segment as part of Singapore Day with songs from his upcoming musical feature film, 881.
