To top it all off, as The Fray took their positions onstage and began their first song, the Guinness Arthur’s Day backdrop came down to reveal a transparent screen that allowed for views of the illuminated Marina Bay and the breath-taking Singapore skyline. The band, who are in the mixing and editing stage of their fourth studio album, even performed a sneak peek of the upcoming album, debuting for the first time outside the US.
