Steve Tyler looks best in Lo-Fi, with Sutro coming in a close second, according to statistics released by Instagram after Saturday’s Aerosmith concert. The legendary rockers, here to perform at the Singapore Social Concerts in Singapore, arrived on stage two hours late, which could explain why people didn’t use Earlybird said an Instagram spokesperson.

The concert held at Gardens by the Bay, a wet patch of reclaimed land off Marina Bay Sands, saw more than 8,000 people turn up to watch the performance through their smartphones or iPads.

“This is truly a social media concert. We’re witnessing a major disruption and revolution of the rock concert experience,” gasped Singapore Social spokesperson Kan Dian Hua.

“All through the night, the social media was abuzz with people who were at the concert. People who spent three hours there not to rock it out, but to tell everyone online that they were there having an awesome time though they were tweeting for the most part. We’re truly living in a hyper connected world.”

Instagram reported a surge of activity during the climax of Armageddon theme song “I don’t want to miss a thing”. Most of the pictures uploaded were captioned with either the aforementioned song title, parts of the lyrics, or exclamations such as “OHMYGOD!” “I WILL DIE HAPPY!”

“No one goes to concerts to listen to music bro. We just there to be there. Music can listen online later,” said one concert attendee and part time Steve Tyler impersonator, Chang Tou Fa.

“Reality tak cool anymore lah. Everything looks better with filter and sound engineering. We just there to record our presence for posterity,” said another concert attendee, Loween Jee.
