Singer-songwriter Tulus is set to collaborate with 100 musicians on stage for the Jakarta leg of his solo tour. Dubbed Monokrom (Monochrome), the concert will be held on Wednesday night, Feb. 6, at 8 p.m. at Istora Senayan in Central Jakarta.
“I’ll be sharing the stage with 100 musicians,” Tulus told kompas.com on Tuesday. “Around 30 musicians will be standing by the stage as well.”
The singer was also involved in designing the stage concept, as he wished to be closer to his fans. “I tried to deliver my ideas in this concert and I wanted to hold a concert where I could sing near the audience,” he said. He added that the stage would be extended toward the audience, and could be accessed from the center of the venue.

Tickets sold out in three hours after they were made available to the public on Dec. 28 last year. The award-winning artist admitted he was glad upon hearing the news. “But the feeling only lasted for 10 minutes. Afterward, I had trouble sleeping as I became excited and nervous,” he said.
He went on to say that he felt certain his team would handle the concert well. “Our concept is developing as my team is getting larger. It has made me more relaxed,” Tulus said.
Tulus’ Monokrom concert was first staged in West Java city of Bandung in November last year. (wir/wng)
