Get excited fans, Andy Lau Tak-wah (劉德華) will be embarking on his 2018/2019 World Tour at the end of the year.
Titled “My Love”, the 56-year-old singer recently unveiled the concert theme and poster for his latest tour. Andy will kicked off his 20 show dates at Hong Kong Coliseum starting 15th December 2018 and will carry on till 3rd January 2019.
For those curious, the colourful expressionistic style portrait was painted by Wuhan-born Beijing-based painter Zeng Fanzhi. The 54-year-old contemporary artist has been known for selling his artworks for millions. Some of them include “Mask Series No.6” (US$9.6 million) in 2008 and “The Last Supper” US$23.3 million in 2013.
“I have known Fanzhi for more than 10 years. At that time, I had wanted to study oil painting. I was filming in Beijing. Coincidentally, we had mutual friends who introduced us so I was able to pay a visit to Fanzhi at his work studio. I really wanted to learn from him, but I didn’t dare to say it then. I hope that one day I can learn to paint with him,” said Andy about his friendship with Zeng Fanzhi.
The Hong Kong Heavenly King was planning an extravagant concert in 2017 but was forced to take a hiatus from the entertainment showbiz. The reason being? He suffered serious spinal injury after a horse-riding mishap in Thailand while filming a commercial.
So far, China has been the only other country to be included in his “My Love” world tour besides Hong Kong. Hopefully the singer will bring his concert to Malaysia.
