The band consists of twin brothers Bill (vocals) and Tom (guitar) Kaulitz, Georg Listing (bass) and Gustav Schafer (drums).
The German quartet is scheduled to perform at the Tent@Orchard tonight and tomorrow night (April 27-28).
In addition to the two live performances, iconic lead singer Bill will take to the catwalk for DSquared2 in the Festival’s opening show.
In January this year, Bill stole the show when he walked in the DSquared2 Menswear Autumn/Winter 2010 show in Milan, Italy.
Tokio Hotel has gone 10 times platinum with their albums sales, scored four No. 1 singles and sold out arenas and stadiums across Europe.
They also scored a Best New Artist VMA from MTV in 2008.
The band’s latest album, Humanoid was released on October 2009 in Singapore.
The singles taken from the Humanoid album, “Automatic” and “World Behind My Wall”, have received excellent airplay across various radio stations.
“World Behind My Wall” also peaked at No. 1 position on the radio.
The Audi Fashion Festival’s Official Charity Partner, The Celton Group, is co-sponsoring the cost of Tokio Hotel’s visit and also spearheading fundraising efforts around the public show on April 28.
TAG Heuer is also sponsoring a $25,000 watch for a silent auction from April 27 to May 2 to raise funds to benefit The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund.
“This is great news for Singapore and the Audi Fashion Festival,” says Head of Global Philanthropy at Celton and Chairman of the Audi Fashion Festival, Dr Frank Cintamani.
“To have one of Europe’s hottest bands come to Singapore before anywhere else in the region is a great privilege...I look forward to working with all the Audi Fashion Festival partners on leveraging their appearance at the Festival to raise as much money as possible for the Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund.”
The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund aims to alleviate the financial burden faced by parents in providing for their children's education.
The funds also help children who are already facing difficulties in remaining in school to stay on.
2010 is a special year for pioneering Swiss-based watchmaker TAG Heuer.
"Tokio Hotel at the Audi Fashion Festival 2010 will kick off our 150 year anniversary celebrations in Singapore,” says TAG Heuer Brand Director, Alvin Soon.
“This year’s Festival theme, “Designing the Future”, fits well with our 150 years of pursuing technical innovation and precision, and bringing in Tokio Hotel provides an exciting and fitting start to our local celebrations.”
Tokio Hotel’s first performance will be an exclusive acoustic set at Audi’s Gala night tonight.
Tomorrow, a two acoustic performance will be staged after the DSquared2 opening show to an audience of 400 invited guests.http://www.plushasia.com/article/8816
