Scissor Sisters at Fort Canning Park | A Concert Review

The Scissor Sisters, a band born in the big apple’s (New York City) gay dance clubs proved on 9 January 2012 that you can beat tummy problems (a little gastronomic mishap fresh from Bali) from a bout of food poisoning with a dollop of fabulousity and an ounce of impeccable glass-breaking falsettos.


Never mind that the outlandishly awesome band had us waiting for 90-minutes, all was forgotten when the band emerged on stage. The Sisters – featuring him and her lead vocalists Jake Shears and Ana Matronic in shredded denim and yellow polka dotted number started the evening with ‘Night Work’ and played a powerhouse 100-minute set that had the 2,500-strong crowd jiving their pelvises to every tune.


The colourful, burlesque-inspired show combined fashion, frantic dance moves and falsetto vocal harmonies that would have made Abba and the Bee Gees jealous. Songs like the sexually charged ‘Any Which Way’ and ‘Fire With Fire’ were highly danceable – glam pop which was just dirty enough to titillate without offending.

Being my first live Scissor Sisters experience, I had wild expectations of quality, energy, danceability and personality. They definitely made the mark on all the parameters. It was an added bonus that Shears revealed a manageably sizzling hot amount of skin too. At the end of the evening, it was evident that the Scissor Sisters brought Fort Canning Park down with provocative dancing, sexy sweating, and dirty conversation that made Singapore a hot, hot city like no other.
