    Really depends on the concert organisers doesn't it? I would say, just go and enjoy the concert if you're going there as a concert-goer not a photographer.

    agree why not just make a light and simply camera snap and keep for memories and enjoy the concert

    basically they want to control all the photos being taken during the concert, those photos taken by handphone, PnS, which generally casually taken and low in quality, it will end up in social network media sites which will help them in publicity,

    photos taken by other type of cameras, no, they don't allow.

    take a compact - you will never have problems with it. why bother with all this - going to enjoy concert, right? like mentioned earlier, take pictures just for memory. and enjoy the moment!

    Bring a harmless looking mirrorless camera, then whoop up the big zoom

    i managed to bring in a Canon 1000d with a 55-250mm lens for Sarah Bareilles' concert, and a Nikon D7000 with 80-200mm lens for Rachael Yamagata's concert
    both were at the Esplanade Concert Hall
    and if I may add, i was completely blown away by their performances
    at Sarah Bareilles' concert, an usher asked me if I was taking the photos in a professional capacity. So i think that if you're a "hobbyist" and not working for anyone when taking the photos, the Esplanade people will be pretty chill about it
    and i managed to get a photograph, autograph and hug from Rachael Yamagata too!

    usually the F1 Concerts allow DSLR shooters in.

    but you'd have to check with the event organizers for other concerts held in Singapore

    I usually bring a nex, lately a rx100. No problem. If you are going with a girl, have her bring a backpack, put the dslr at the bottom and then a T-shirt and some underwear on top to hide it. That's how people sneak in a dslr. Once the bag checkers see the clothes/undies they usually will not dig deeper

    ... the invisible ones? or at least to organizers....
    A true photograph need not be explained, nor can it be contained in words.
