Music composer and producer Mark Lui held his first THANK YOU Concert at HK Coliseum last night. There is a total of 3 shows. Leon Lai, Kelly Chen, Miriam Yeung, Stephen Fung, Andy Hui, Edmond Leung, William So, Leo Ku, Daniel Chan, Aarif Lee, Alex Fong, Stephy Tang, Mimi Lo, Janice Vidal, JW and RubberBand were all there to support him! Truly a star-studded concert with a total of 20 singers. Kelly hadn't been on the HK Coliseum stage for a while, she demonstrated her "favored singer" rank that nobody could replace as she performed 4 songs the entire night. Leon entered the stage as usual, he mentioned several golden phrases, which was the peak of the concert.
When Mark introduced Alex and Stephy on stage, he exposed they have already been a couple for 7 years. "They used to be in the same company as me (Gold Typhoon) and had several romantic duets. Ultimately love actually sparked between the two. The public thought they had only been dating for 3-4 years, but actually it has already been 7 years!"
As soon as Mark finished his speech, Alex appeared in his blue suit along with Stephy, whom had a back-revealing long white dress. They performed their classic duet Good Heart Good Blessings (好心好報). At the end, the couple held hands and were supported by screaming fans from the entire venue.
Andy Hui performed Love You, which got fans screaming "Sammi". Miriam performed 4 songs in her transparent evening dress. Mark emphasized he and Miriam are good friends, how could his concert not include her? During the concert photo shoot, Miriam had just given birth and wasn't able to participate. Miriam thanked Mark for writing her such great songs that brought her career to its peak. She also recalls the 36th week during her pregnancy, she went trembling in fear to the recording studio to record a song that Mark wrote for her. She had 3 belly cramps during the process. But Miriam just left after performing her songs and didn't participate in the large group sing-a-long in the end. It was rumored she didn't want to be on stage with her former boss Leon Lai. After Leon performed his songs, he tried to create atmosphere by speaking his golden phrases: "Initially I wanted to wear my shades to the stage and act like a big celebrity, but the staff said that wouldn't be too good. I thought to myself, the seniors without shades left already, so if I wear my shades, would I be able to leave early? Eventually due to respect, I didn't wear the shades. Actually I don't need to think about leaving early or leaving late. Only my body is leaving anyway, my spirit still continues to fly!" Leon later appeared on stage for the second time in dark shades to perform a hot medley of fast songs.
