Relive the memories with Fredo as the frontman of legendary ‘70s Singapore band The Flybaits brings his Esplanade debut to Offstage. Celebrating the highlights of a decades-long career, the sold-out concert was also the veteran performer’s first solo showcase in Singapore after more than 40 years in show business.
Evoking nostalgia with original hits such as Mengapa Perpisahan Yang Kau Pinta (“Why Did You Ask for a Separation?”), Relive the Memories with Fredo was performed and filmed live at Esplanade Recital Studio on 6 March 2020 as part of the line-up for A Date with Friends. An arts festival for the silver generation, A Date with Friends entered its 15th year in 2020 with ageless tunes performed by musicians and stars from the golden era.
Fredo, whose full name is Alfredo Vilenguez, rose to fame with a series of Malay hit songs in the late 1970s, and 1980s while building a career that spanned Singapore, Malaysia and other parts of Asia. The home-grown entertainer and his band The Flybaits released their debut album Mempersembahkan (“Presenting”) in 1980.
