K-pop boy band EXO’s Lay Zhang will hold their first solo concert in Singapore on October 19

Chinese singer-actor Lay Zhang, a member of K-pop boy band EXO, will hold his first solo concert in Singapore at Resorts World Sentosa Convention Center on October 19.

The concert is the second leg of the pop star’s Grand Line 2: Infinite Lands tour, which marks the 10th anniversary of her debut in show business.

Expect new songs that have never been performed before, as well as hits like Sheep and Honey.

Tickets are priced at $168 and will be available for purchase beginning September 22.

Zhang, 30, had previously performed here with his fellow EXO bandmates. Their last gig was almost exactly three years ago at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

As a solo artist he has released four studio albums. Namanana (2018) debuted at number 21 on the US Billboard 200 chart.

Earlier this year, he released a duet with American rapper 24KGoldn. The track, Dawn To Dusk, sees Zhang rapping in Mandarin in response to 24kGoldn’s English verses.

In April, he parted ways with SM Entertainment, his longtime entertainment agency that formed EXO, after fulfilling his 10-year contract.

He said at the time: “This decade is one of the greatest gifts I could have received.”

He also reassured fans that he “will always be (as) Lay when my (EXO) members need me.”

Between his singing pursuits, the Hunan-born idol has also built up a substantial acting resume, with films such as the Jackie Chan action comedy Kung Fu Yoga (2017) and TV series like the historical drama Empress of the Ming (2019) and gang drama Crime Crackdown (2021).
