Whether you’re a basketball fan or not, The Original Harlem Globetrotters World Tour 2019 is worth checking out. What it lacks in competitive spirit usually found in tournaments, it makes up with athleticism, theater, and comedy in their style of play. This is an event that a whole family can get behind, especially if they purchase a Magic Pass – a fan meet where the stars will let you shoot hoops, teach tricks and take photos with them!

Video Games Classics

In-game music is something that most gamers take for granted. Without it, the game just feels a little empty because the music helps to set the mood and atmosphere of the zone you’re in. In this concert, you get to relive or visit the atmosphere of those in-game zones from World of Warcraft, The Planets, Resident Evil 5 and Final Fantasy VII, among others! You might find yourself playing one of these games (or pick it up) after listening to the music.

Video Games Classics
Date: 5 April 2019
Time: 7:30pm
Venue: Esplanade
Admission Fee: $28 – $98

The Esplanade area has a park and a museum nearby. Why don’t you head there before the concert?

Latino Night – Post Bar

Club nights where people just move their heads or hands are just too overrated. We recommend something a little spicier – salsa dancing. This is worth checking out because it is a dignified yet fun party event – it is held at The Fullerton Hotel, has a 3-piece band playing all the music for the night and comes with a complimentary drink for a $20 cover charge. Also, the dress code (salsa-friendly smart casual) is pretty chill for such an opulent venue.

Peter Tay meets a Genie who helps him wipe off three of his past mistakes. You won’t have expected what he wished for for his third wish. Watch it here:

Latino Night – Post Bar
Date: 6 April 2019
Time: 7:00pm till late
Venue: The Fullerton Hotel
Admission Fee: $20

Here are some more events for you to check out in April!
