As most of you would’ve heard by now, Cantopop “god” Jacky Cheung (张学友) is set to bring his “A Classic Tour” concert to Axiata Arena in Bukit Jalil on 26th and 27th January 2018.
Dubbed the “God of Songs” of Hong Kong, the “Heavenly King” crooner is known for his rich baritone voice and has released numerous hits such as “Everlasting Love” (只想一生跟你走), “Goodbye Kiss” (吻别), and “Your First Name, My Last Name” (妳的名字,我的姓氏). His most recent album, titled “Wake Up Dreaming” (醒著做夢), was released in December 2014. It achieved spectacular sales records, topping iTunes chart within one week of its release. The physical album was sold out in Malaysia, resulting in additional orders from recording label, Universal Music Malaysia. Furthermore, it consists of 10 tracks including “The Rest Of Time”, “It’s Not Too Late”, and “Tears Of Time”.
Pre-sale tickets went on sale late last week, XOX and Citi (for Citibank card members) on 19th and 20th October 2017 respectively, and as expected, it was snapped up in the blink of an eye. Hundreds of fans also made a beeline for the official ticket launch ( 21st October 2017) at Quill City Mall in Kuala Lumpur 48 hours prior. Many fans were, of course, left sorely disappointed when they learned that tickets to both nights of Jacky Cheung’s “A Classic Tour” concert were quickly sold out.
However, not all hope is lost!
StarPlanet, the organiser for Jacky Cheung’s concert in Kuala Lumpur, has taken to their Facebook page to announce that they’re working on adding another show. Word on the street is that the show could possibly take place on 28th January 2018, as previously predicted by several Chinese media outlets.
The mad rush for Jacky Cheung’s “A Classic Tour” concert tickets is about to begin once more. Get ready to get a-clickin’, guys!
