Justin Lo treats Malaysian fans to a splashing good time.
JUSTIN Lo sure knows how to have fun. The Malaysian leg of his Around The World Tour was a fun and quirky show which culminated in a splashing beach party!
The Cantopop singing sensation serenaded his way into more than 7,000 Malaysian hearts at Sunway Lagoon Surf Beach, Petaling Jaya, Selangor, on Saturday night when he cleverly turned his hit song Erica into a song for Malaysia, Truly Asia.
Commenting on the title of his concert, which was organised by Galaxy, Lo offered: “I decided to call this show the Around The World Tour because I want to take the opportunity to entertain you with different music genres from around the world.”
Local singer Alvin Chong served as the opening act, while the Hong Kong-based band was led by veteran guitarist Pal Sin and comprised renowned Hong Kong drummer Jun Kung and Jerald Chan (of Hong Kong musical duo Swing) doing the programming, as well as a certain Mrs Chan who appeared in a Panda outfit singing Eurythmics’ Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This).
Together with his guest performers, Lo entertained fans with over 30 songs in Cantonese and English during the three-hour-long show.
Making his grand entrance in a flashy top hat and a tuxedo, Lo, who recently shifted base from Hong Kong to Beijing, kept fans singing along to his own popular hits like B.O.K, Volar, Kong, Nam Yan KTV ( Men’s KTV), Meng Ngang (Hard Life), Hou Yan (Good Guy), Hung Dei Jin (Stuck On You) and Ngo Yau Gam Yat (I Got It Going For Myself).
Wowing the enthusiastic crowd with his powerful vocals, the 35year-old singer also paid tribute to the King of Pop Michael Jackson and Cantopop superstar Leslie Cheung with impersonations of both.
Lo sounded eeriely like Cheung when he sang the late singer’s hit Nong Ching Mat Yi.
