Foster the People Live in Shanghai

Modern Sky Lab - 3/F, 188 Ruihong Lu, near Tianhong Lu

LA indie pop band Foster the People’s song "Pumped Up Kicks" became a viral success in 2010 and the group received a record deal, and gained a fanbase through small club shows and appearances at music festivals. After releasing their debut album “Torches” in May 2011, "Pumped Up Kicks" became a crossover hit on commercial radio in mid-2011 and eventually reached number three on the Billboard Hot 100. The band has since followed up with critical and commercial hit records, culminating in their latest, "Sacred Hearts Club". Feel-good indie pop for the masses from this American mainstay. Tickets available right here.

[Update: This show is now sold out! Please note, that SmartTicket's tickets for this event have been fully purchased. You might have more luck with an alternate ticketing agent.]

Imagine Dragons 'Evolve' 2017 World Tour

MB Arena - 1200 Shibo Da Dao, near Shangnan Lu

Multi-platinum Las Vegas band Imagine Dragons play Shanghai. They went straight to top of the Billboard charts in 2013 for their single "Radioactive", which Rolling Stone called "the biggest rock hit of the year". They've won several American Music Awards, a Grammy, five Billboard Music Awards, and more. Tickets available right here.

[Update: Whoops. These ones are gone too. Gotta be quick, I guess. These shows are hot, hot, hot. Good luck with securing tickets with an alternate agent.]

It is not an exaggeration to call Leonard Bernstein a renaissance man of the 20th Century. He is conductor, composer, pianist, and social activist, and what is more admirable is that he has made great contribution in each above-mentioned field. In his centennial birthday celebration, Conductor Zhang Jiemin and the SSO will commemorate the polymath with two concerts. Full details on both at our ticketing page. Tickets available right here.

Arkham pres. Jimmy Prime

Arkham - B1/F, 168 Julu Lu, near Ruijin Yi Lu

In just a few short years in the music industry, Jimmy Prime has carved out his space in the game as a versatile rapper and lyricist who is undeniably in tune with hip-hop culture. In addition to being a Grammy-nominated for his work on Drake’s iconic mixtape "If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late", he has also been credited for coining the term “the 6” ( This term is originated from his song “ Trip to the 6 ” ) which has birthed a whole movement for the city and quickly became a globally recognized nickname for Toronto. Support from Amber Akilla and Dazzy. Tickets available right here.
