Wang Lee Hom 王力宏 Music Man Tour 2 @ Stadium Merdeka 2012

The girl received some free tickets to watch him live. Not really a fan of chinese music, but why not bring a camera and shoot him rather than stone in the concert.

 Using rather un-conventional ways, we managed to bring our camera gear in. Tickets that we got were RM298 seats, 3rd most expensive. They were shaded sits but were not at a very good angle towards the stage.

So like every chinese super star, the entrance has to be awesome and dramatic. Jay Chou's entrance depicted him flying through space, but Mr. Hom's entrance was based on a war story where he was the hero saving this girl from hordes of Nazi looking like soldiers. His entrance: he game dressed in full military suit in a tank.

Did not see any band so was assuming this was gonna be a minus-one concert.

Was surprised to see his band rolling out on 4 mobile stage. His band is really quite good, composing of a few guai lows.

 Since his stage was small, he did what other artists has never done, he drove around the audience on a mobile-platform-piano-carish thingy, as u may expect, the crowd went crazy, people were all trying to get as close as they could.

Did I mention? It was pouring cats and dogs. Out of good showmanship, he still did a complete round in his mobile-platform-piano thingy.

Mr Lee Hom also shows off his great talents with different instruments, from the piano to the guitar to the er-hu, all with great finesse. This instrument particularly caught my eye, a dragon shaped guitar, how more oriental can you be. LOL

For another song he did a complete lap of the WHOLE stadium. This time in the pouring rain.

As usual the crowd were on their feet and were pushing in the rain.

Oh did I forget? He had kids to back him up on choir. That was really cute.

Overall he belted more than 20 songs in 3 hours. Great showmanship I must say even though I did not know 99.8% of the songs. 

He shaked his bon bon and jiggled with it too.

Well that's all the pictures I have, if only we had chosen a better sit, could have gotten better pics. I found out a really disturbing fact during his concert, apparently his fan club is called "Homos". Oops "Homaniacs", either way, sounds weird. LOL
