JJ Lin "After The Rain" A Charity Live Special

  • Concert


JJ Lin’s concert "After The Rain" will pilot the “VDS+Test” protocol, where capacity limits and zoning requirements will be eased.

Under this protocol, all attendees need to be fully vaccinated and have a valid negative Pre-Event Test (PET). The PET can be performed at any of the MOH-Approved COVID-19 Test Providers listed here , or at Marina Bay Sands’ PET facility located at Sands Expo & Convention Centre, L3, Begonia Ballroom, 3104. Each PET costs S$40.

As part of this pilot programme, all seats may be filled without the need for 1-meter distancing or 1-seat spacing.  Guests must be fully masked at all times and observe prevailing Safe Management Measures. All attendees should remain seated and not intermingle with individuals from other social groups for the entire duration of the event. No F&B is allowed at all times.

Marina Bay Sands and Singaporean superstar JJ Lin are teaming up for a good cause this Nov with After The Rain, a two-day concert in which ticket proceeds will go to vulnerable communities served by Community Chest. To be held on 27 and 28 Nov at Sands Theatre, the event holds significance for JJ Lin, as it will be his first in-person concert in two years since the COVID-19 pandemic began. Proceeds from the ticket sales will be donated to Community Chest, a key beneficiary of Marina Bay Sands’ Corporate Social Responsibility programme, Sands Cares.

Before you go

Does attending this concert require Pre-Event Testing (PET)?

Yes, this concert is a pilot event with “VDS+Test” Protocol. Hence, all attendees must be both fully vaccinated (i.e. an individual is considered fully vaccinated 14 days after he or she has received the full regimen of any World Health Organization Emergency Use Listing (WHO EUL) vaccine); and undergo a Pre-Event Test (PET).

All attendees taking PET must have a valid negative Antigen Rapid Test (ART) or Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) Test for the duration of the performance (i.e. the PET must have been taken in the past 24 hours before the expected end of the performance).

According to the Ministry of Health (MOH), ART is recommended for Pre-Event Testing as it has a shorter turnaround time. With ART, attendees may be able to receive their results within an hour.

Do note that no refunds will be given to those who are unable to attend the show due to delays at the test venue.

If you have taken a registered ART test, you should be able to view your test result in the Home Screen under the COVID Health Status section of your TraceTogether (TT) App, or via HealthHub within an hour.

Your Pre-Event Test (PET) result must be valid till the end of the concert (i.e. 10pm). As the PET result is valid for 24 hours, you may take your PET any time from 10pm a day prior to the performance.

If you intend to take your PET on-site at Marina Bay Sands, please factor more time in your journey as there may be queues at the PET facility.

Yes, attendees will have to pay for the COVID-19 test(s) as part of PET requirement, at their own cost.

The PET facility is located at L3, Begonia Ballroom, Sands Expo & Convention Centre and is open from 1430 – 1930hrs on 27 and 28 Nov. Each PET, administered by Dr Anywhere, in Marina Bay Sands costs S$40 and can be paid via the following methods:

   1) PayNow (QR code or UEN no.)
   2) PayLah (QR code or UEN no.)
