I die also wana go to his concert in 2012!!! Jam Hsiao @ Hong Kong | :: WOOHOO
I have this unexplained affinity with Lao Hsiao. I happened to be in Taipei when his Mr Rock tour began in Dec 2009, and I happened to be in Hong Kong where he launched his new concert last weekend. Tickets were sold out on both occasions, but I managed to *ahem* get a seat nonetheless. The new show kicked off with the title track from his fourth album 狂想曲, which further consolidates his rocker status. Five songs into the concert, we realised that the format was similar to the previous one. From a multilingual opening, to a dance segment which drove everyone wild like the last time, to a wide repertoire of cover hits, Lao Hsiao was every bit the accomplished vocalist we all know. He could do with a new production team, however. I didn’t like the arrangement for a number of songs, and how they ended anti-climatically . The stage was grand enough, but was sorely underutilise...
