Pop diva A-mei to kick off con­cert marathon Satur­day

The China Post - - LOCAL -

Tai­wan’s pop diva A-mei is set to launch a con­cert marathon in Taipei start­ing Satur­day, per­form­ing 10 con­certs over the span of 12 days.

The “Utopia World Tour” con­certs, with an es­ti­mated pro­duc­tion cost of NT$170 mil­lion (US$5.47 mil­lion), will take place at the Taipei Arena from Satur­day to April 15. All 120,000 tick­ets were snatched up just 12 min­utes af­ter they went on sale in De­cem­ber last year.

The popular singer is ex­pected to per­form six songs from her new al­bum “AMIT2,” as well as her other hit songs dur­ing the per­for­mances.

To give her fans a unique ex­peri- ence, A-mei has in­tro­duced con­cert tick­ets in the form of chip cards that have the ticket hold­ers’ names printed on them.

“Maybe I am a lit­tle stub­born, but I want ev­ery de­tail to be per­fect on this tour,” A-mei said, ex­press­ing hope that the con­cert tick­ets will serve as her fans’ cus­tom­ized “Utopia cit­i­zen­ship cer­tifi­cate.”

A to­tal of 120,000 red masks will also be dis­trib­uted at the con­certs to en­cour­age fans to be them­selves, en­joy the mu­sic and not be af­fected by what oth­ers think of them be­cause “ev­ery­one is equal in my mu­sic, re­gard­less of their gen­der and iden­tity,” the singer said.
