I have watched several great concerts/dance performances in Jan and Feb. Some of them I would not have seen if my friends didn’t recommended.
The first one is Kay Tse. As a matter of fact, I haven’t seen any concert in HK Coliseum besides Yanzi’s. (I know you don’t like her which I don’t understand why.. haha) I pretty admire Kay as a musician because she uses music as a tool to tell thoughts that she believes. Her interest is her job. And her job is to makes things right. The visual isn’t quite entertaining. But the messages she sent, made it a sincere and authentic performance.
The second one is the famous Concert YY that everyone posted on facebook walls. I’ve been to the second show that had Eason Chan, Sammi Cheng, Fiona Sit, Joey Yung, Denise Ho, Ella Koon and Jeff Chang etc. I would be happier if the show I went had Kay Tse, Miriam Yeung and Ivana Wong. But it was good enough. I at least know 90% of the songs. It was a concert of surprises and unpredictable singers, which made if quite fun and rich actually. This is a concert for our generation. Most of the songs were ten or more year old, which was the time we listened to Canton pop a lot and related our emotions to them. This concert is really special for us.
The third concert I watched was a Christmas gift from my sister and her husband, who is Scottish. He is a person with very particular preference on things. And he recommended this band, The Horror. It was a small venue at Kowloon Bay. It was just like a lecture hall. I didn’t know much about their music. But if a band is powerful, they can move people purely with their energetic live performance. (I had that feeling when I saw Aerosmith in Venice) The Horror could certainly do that too.
The last one is this dance performance I saw in HK Arts Festival. I’ve seen several dance performances this year and I like this one the most. It is a dance choreographed by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, inspired by TeZukA. The whole show was full of hope and positivity despite there’s certain darkness to it. It’s basically a reflection of modern Japan. It was an creative and inspiring performance.
I have bought tickets to Lady Gaga and Milos Karadaglic in May. So looking forward to their performances!
