Thursday 5th June 2014 and The Coliseum Hard Rock Hotel Sentosa, Singapore, became the venue for Boston's Extreme with members Gary Cherone on vocals, Nuno Bettencourt on guitar, Pat Badger on bass and Kevin Figueiredo on drums. This would be their first time in Singapore and the concert was promoted by Live! Empire.
Extreme's 2014 World Tour theme is their second album which was also their most successful album, namely 'Pornograffitti'. All the songs on the second album sung completely without any deficiencies, including the song 'Suzi (Wants Her All Day What?)' which usually is not included in the songlist.

At 8:30pm local time, Extreme immediately kicked off with the song 'Decadence Dance' and then successively played the order list of the songs on the album 'Pornograffitti'.
Extreme's appearance has not changed; they still have the same appearance as in videos from the 90s and now I can watch them directly in front of my eyes.
All songs from the album 'Pornograffitti' including 'Get The Funk Out', 'Pornograffitti', 'When I First Kissed You' and of course the phenomenal song and cause of mass karaoke, 'More Than Words', were sung perfectly flawlessly.
The band were upported by cool sound and nice lighting and a very satisfactory Singapore crowd, most of whom have probably been waiting for this moment for 20 years.
Of the 1,000 spectators, many came from several countries around Singapore such as Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia and even some from Japan and Australia.
Not to forget in between some songs Nuno also presents a solo acoustic guitar that is very intriguing. And that night, in addition to bringing all of the songs on the album 'Pornograffitti', Extreme also add a few other hit songs from the album 'Play With Me' (the song from their self-titled debut album); 'Rest In Peace', 'Am I Ever Gonna Change', 'Cupid's Dead' (the songs from their third album 'III Sides To Every Story'); 'Midnight Express' (the song from their fourth album 'Waiting For The Punchline') and 'Take Us Alive' (the song from their fifth album 'Suadades de Rock').
You could say that night was a very satisfying night for those fans who came to watch. Yes, Extreme has provided the climax to the max. Rock on Extreme! And great job from Live! Empire.
