    Last week, I went to SIngapore from Hong Kong for this incredible show!

    As I got really nothing to do there, so I entered the theater hall like 30mins before the show, and I'm allowed to do everyone here wanna do, - go to the stage front!! As there are not many people in the hall at I the time I got in, so I can took picture of the stage and gears!! (Not allowed using flash, the pic is a bit blur n dark...)

    Here you go!

    That's awesome Timothy, great pics! You say there's nothing to do in Singapore? What about eating? It's one of the best cities to eat in the world from what I hear... But that's a different thread/forum, haha.

    Thanks for sharing!

    If anybody has a chance to attend Wooten's bass clinic on this tour, it is definitely worth going! I went to listen to him in Finland, and I must say it was probably the best 2,5 hour lesson I've had about playing, understanding music etc.

    In the end he didnt play bass that much, just talking. So bring your band mates also :)

    Woah - all this happened in my own country?? I didn't know that. I really should pay attention to what's going on in my country. Nice pictures by the way. The Hartke amps looked beautiful. :D

    Who knew Marcus was such a pedal junkie?! Everything I've heard by him sounds like clean tones.

    After years of playing, I put together my very first pedalboard - with a whopping 4 pedals on it, haha - Dunlop 105Q wah, Boss CEB-3, OC-3 & TU-2... I was thinking right after, "What am I doing with all these effects, I'm a bass player." LOL.

    Well, looking at Marcus' board and all the others here on TB... I guess I'm ok - mine is bare compared to ones I've seen.

    Had too much work to clear that week. Worked until about 10pm that day. A friend of mine managed to help me get Victor Wooten's set-list though. Complete with what looks like his footprint :)
     
  18. It certainly looks that way!

    BTW, you can ask Marcus for yourself. Go to his website, and he answers every question people have for him.

    Really? Cool, thanks. I'll send him an email. I doubt it's really him that answers.
