Fans of David Garrett here in Singapore were in for a real treat as they not only got to attend a special exclusive showcase by the man himself at Avalon, Marina Bay Sands but also had a chance to attend his autograph session the day after.
As early as 6pm, 2 hours before the autograph session started, you could see fans in the designated queue area hoping to the first few to get a chance to meet their idol and get his autograph. And by 7.15pm, the whole atrium area at Paragon was filling up fast with a queue longer than what the designated queue area could hold.
Looking as stylish as ever, David Garrett and his guitarist Marcus Wolf gave a short performance on stage to the delight of everyone present. Cheers and claps were all around as David started off with Michael Jackson’s Smooth Criminal and immediately the whole atrium was alive with the sound of his violin and Marcus’ guitar.
While the performance was not as long as the exclusive showcased, it was enough to attract everyone who heard the music to the atrium and soon the place was crowded with fans and onlookers alike. David went on to play a few more songs including Aerosmith’s Walk This Way and the iconic He’s A Pirate from the Pirates of the Caribbean movie series.
Shortly after, the table was brought onto the stage and the fans went up to meet David and get his autograph. It was interesting to see both the young and old queuing up to get David’s autograph. Not only were David Garrett’s latest Rock Symphonies CDs being autographed, fans even brought along their music score books, instrument cases, posters and even their violins as well. One fan was even spotted asking David to sign her bag.
Even though the queue looked never ending, David was all smiles as he interacted with each one of his fans. Add that with his charming good looks and it is no surprise to see happy smiling fans after the session was over.
