This year HK music fans are really lucky! Ever since the beginning of the year (after the Colieseum renovations finished), there had been one concert after another. During 2009, Hacken Lee, Alan Tam, Fahrenheit, Kay Tse etc had already held their concerts at the Coliseum. In June, Raymond Lam will hold his first solo concert there after being in the entertainment industry for ten years. Ah Fung is the favourite of TVB and EEG, this concert is promoted to be using all of their resources and energy, must be a win and not lose. Such an important solo concert, what secret weapons will Fung have? Will reveal it to everyone.
Playing with the four elements
Even though Fung has been in the entertainment industry for ten years, this is only the third year that he formally entered the music industry and became a singer. On the 17th and 18th June he will hold “Endless Love” Raymond Lam concert at the HK Colieseum. Being able to enter the big stage in such a short time is evidence that Fung has the ability and the popularity. Being Fung’s first solo concert, everyone is nervous about it. They are doing their best in every facet of the concert, bringing surprises to the audience, including the stage, costumes, dancing, songs, guests etc. Fung says, “This concert will have the theme of “Endless Love”. Actually this includes the four elements, passionate love, brotherly love, romantic love and friendship. Will reveal every element at the concert.”
Being revealing
Speaking of the four elements, when we heard “passionate love”, it made us thought of a sexy Fung. Fung: “I think this concert’s most unique feature is a segment where there there will be getting wet playing with water and dancing. There will be a group of dancers with fast songs. So in the concert poster I have already got water. There might even be more water at the concert. (So it will be very sexy?) It’s a healthy type of sexy, since June is approaching the holidays, and also summer. Hopefully the audience can have fun and dance together! (Will your outfits be sexy as well?) …… I think I will wear see through, can see but not too much, that type!” It is rumoured that Fung will also wear T-back, if fans want to see it they will need to buy the tickets which will let them shake hands!
Three sides like four sides
Fung: “This time the stage design is very unique. Because the company hired the famous designer Fion, who worked on the 360 degree stage Aaron Kwok had previously. Even though there will be a three sides stage this time, but there will be a close up effect like a four sides stage, guaranteeing the fans will have a chance to get up close. Besides this, as this concert will have a segment where we play with water, so the audience sitting at the front might get wet with me!” The concert will be in a three sides stage format, so there will be less seats available than a four sides stage concert. So fans who want tickets will need to buy early!
Dancing with Laughing
After talking about passionate love, we must speak about brotherly love. There is nothing adult about it, they wanted to reveal the “cool man” side of Fung. Fung: “There will be a part of fast songs and dancing at the concert. I also invited my good friend Laughing Gor Michael Tse to dance with me! Maybe many fans do not know, I am good friends with Laughing Gor, known each other for many years. When we meet we will sing together, but we’ve never really worked together so this will be the first time I’ve worked with him.”
Also Fung says he will reveal his cool side with beautiful clothes and hairstyle. There will be many outfits which will show a side of Fung which we’ve never seen before.
Will sing all types of songs
As the king of love songs, how could the concert not have a segment about romantic love? He said he will sing lots of love songs at the concert too. Fung: “I will sing many love songs from my two albums, plus I will release a new album soon. I will sing the songs from the third album at the concert for the first time. Besides love songs, I will also sing fast songs, even have the possibility of rapping.” These past two years Fung had concentrated on singing love songs, but for this concert, he especially invited Wyman Wong to write the concert’s theme song for him, “Let’s Get Wet”. This song combines energy with sexy, fans need to watch out for it!
Linda Chung difficult to schedule
Finally we’ll talk about friendships. Fung says since he’s been in the industry for ten years, he knows many people. When many of his friends found out he’s holding a concert, they all wanted him to reserve some tickets for them. So there will be many stars on and off stage. Fung: “There will definitely be guests at the concert. Actually we’re inviting many now, but the confirmed guests are Vincy Chan, Charlene Choi, and also will have older generation guests. (Will Linda Chung be a guest?) Hehe! I invited her, but the company said they haven’t scheduled her yet, because she’s very busy, very difficult to schedule! But I also know there are guests that many fans want me to invite, so I hope I can satisfy everyone!” Looking at Fung’s expression, it seems Linda cannot escape, if she doesn’t come, he’s afraid that fans will want a refund!

The feeling is like dreaming
After speaking about the content of the concert, of course we have to talk about Fung’s feelings. He said he only believed what was happening just a few days ago. Fung: “Before the concert press conference, I didn’t quite believe it was true. It’s like a dream, now I’m starting to be sure that I’m holding a concert next month. (Do you think it’s too fast having a Colileseum concert after just two years in the music industry?) Actually I think it’s fast, because I don’t have a lot of experience. In the past I’ve thought holding a concert is a distant goal, but the company felt this year is a very good time. Plus I’ve been in the industry for ten years now, this concert is very important to my career.”
Rehearsing from this month
Actually the last two albums that Fung had released all sold very well. So this gave a lot of confidence to him and the company. But having confidence doesn’t mean he’s not nervous and feels a lot of pressure. Fung: “Of course I feel pressured. But I can only turn pressure into energy. From this month, the company will allocate ample time for me to rehearse, so I can prepare well. (Will there be pressures of ticket sales?) Actually not really, I think only the company has this pressure. I am only nervous about my performance, hopefully I can show my fans at the concert, that besides singing love songs, I have many other talents.”
