Lethal combination: Hard Rock legends to stun fans in Singapore and Slipknot make its comeback!
LAMC Productions is excited to announce that world-renowned German rock band Scorpions and iconic English hard rock band Whitesnake are headlining Singapore Rockfest II on 4th March 2020, 5pm at Fort Canning Park!
Rock out to full sets from two of the most celebrated rock icons in one night at the return of the hugely anticipated Singapore Rockfest!
50 years have gone by since the days where the juvenile Klaus Meine, Rudolf Schenker and Matthias Jabs wandered the streets of Hannover, which was just awakening from post-war paralysis, with a barrow carrying their instruments and amplifiers. Since then, the band has become Germany’s or rather Continental Europe’s most successful rock band and an instantly recognisable name in the rock scene.
Expressing a career like the one of the Scorpions in mere numbers is almost impossible. However, one number that should still be mentioned is more than 100 million records sold to date. There were many magic live moments; some of them are captured on live albums, others on film and video recordings. These are the moments, which have cemented the Scorpions’ reputation as one of the rare bands rising far above the crowd.
Whitesnake is one of the most successful and enduring rock bands in the world. Formed in 1978 by former Deep Purple frontman David Coverdale, the band soon became one of Europe’s most successful live acts before Coverdale decamped to America and re-launched the band in the late 80’s with the multi-platinum success of their album ‘1987’. The album went top ten on both sides of the Atlantic within a week of its release and would go on to sell eight million copies in the U.S alone, giving them a number one single on the Billboard Hot 100 with “Here I Go Again” to boot.
In 2015 the band released The Purple Album, a reworking of classic songs from David’s Deep Purple days. The subsequent world tour was one of the bands most successful, starting in America and finishing in the UK at the end of December.
Get ready for Scorpions and Whitesnake’s stinging sound and gear up for a legendary rock music experience!

Also announcing is multi-platinum, Grammy award-winning masked entity Slipknot is set to make a long-awaited return to Singapore on 24th March, 2020!
As part of their ‘We Are Not Your Kind’ Tour, Slipknot will be returning to Singapore as one of the stops on their Asia dates, joining the Singapore Rockfest II on its second day. One of the most popular bands in the nu-metal explosion of the late 1990s and early 2000s, Slipknot were formed in late 1995 in Des Moines, Iowa; after some early personnel shifts, the nine-piece lineup settled around.
Slipknot’s blueprint for nu-metal success was set with their theatrical, attention-grabbing image – the band would always perform in identical industrial jumpsuits and homemade Halloween masks, and their mysterious anonymity by adopting the numbers zero through eight as stage aliases.
Emerging in 1995, the Grammy Award-winning issued their eponymous debut album in 1999 and went mainstream with subsequent gold and platinum efforts like Iowa (2001), All Hope Is Gone (2008), and therir sixth LP We Are Not Your Kind is already available for streaming on all platforms. The LP is highlighted by early album tracks “Birth Of The Cruel,” “Solway Firth,” and the LP’s lead single “Unsainted.” Each has come with an M. Shawn Crahan directed official music video, and each has trended worldwide on YouTube (all videos, not just music) – “Unsainted” at #1 worldwide for a full 24 hours.
