It remains to be seen whether Bragg will tour elsewhere in Southeast Asia. His show in Singapore will come after he performs a string of shows in New Zealand and Australia between February 17 and April 6.

Bragg has been in the news lately for commenting on transgender rights, drawing accusations of misogyny from author and documented transphobe J.K. Rowling after he backed presenter Graham Norton’s comments on “cancel culture” merely being accountability.

In October last year, Bragg released his 13th studio album ‘The Million Things That Never Happened’, which received a three-star rating from NME.

In the review, NME writer Patrick Clarke said the album leaves “plenty of room for nuanced, compassionate songwriting that never loses grip of its sense of empathy.”

“In an age of division, ‘The Million Things That Never Happened’ is a gentle embrace of what unites us all,” Clarke wrote.
