BAYAN LEPAS, April 19 – Eason Chan has hold his first ever concert in Penang! The Hong Kong megastar will be in Penang to hold his highly-acclaimed “EASON’S LIFE” concert this evening. Eason Chan is on the threshold of major stardom in Hong Kong and undoubtedly one of the most dominant male singers in the post- 1997 era of Hong Kong music industry. Praised by Time magazine as a forerunner of the next generation of Cantopop and considered as Hong Kong’s third “god of song” after Sam Hui and Jacky Cheung, the star was crowned “King of Asian Pop” by Time Out Hong Kong in 2012.
He is also the first Asian singer to perform on the stage of the world-renowned London’s O2 Arena. Back with a new concept concert tour ”EASON’S LIFE in Penang” which had taken place on today, Saturday, 19th April 2014, from 8pm to 11pm at sPICE. EASON’S LIFE in Penang will be Eason’s first ever concert performance in Penang and out of Kuala Lumpur. In fact, the show has received rousing success since its launch at the Hong Kong Coliseum on 6th July 2013, and unexpected and overwhelming ticket demand had led local Hong Kong promoter to answer fans’ call for more shows, increasing his show performances from the initial 12, to 17, to 20, to 23, and lastly to the final count of 25 shows held in Hong Kong alone over a month long period.
Even Eason himself was surprised at the huge demand his concert garnered and attributes his success to the immense support given by everyone. Eason points out that in today’s fast-paced society, everyone is so focused on their careers and the “big” things in life that they often neglect the many “small” things, “People of different age groups would have different life experiences. I hope that through the concert, everyone can realize the importance and value of the “small” things in life and invest more in finding out different meanings and significances in life.”
Not only a powerful vocalist, Eason Chan also plays some of musical instruments including piano, guitar and drums and frequently showcases his musical talent by incorporating instruments into his live performances. The star is hard at work with practices and concert preparations, with the hopes of delivering a fantastic show for audiences and sharing his depiction of LIFE through his music.
