Sam Hui and Alan Tam give Macao audiences a night to remember
Anyone familiar with Canto-pop needs no introduction to Sam Hui and Alan Tam. Hui is considered a Canto-pop virtuoso – his catchy tunes and lyrics are popular outside Hong Kong, too, especially in Southeast Asia.
Tam – nicknamed “Principal Tam” for his longevity on the local music scene – is one of Hong Kong’s most successful pop icons, with a whopping 800 songs to his name.
So when the two superstars met on the stage of the Cotai Arena in The Venetian Macao, fans were captivated during a night of nostalgia and reminiscence.
The singers kicked off the concert with The Perfect Match – a song written and performed by Hui, and which was the theme for the 1982 action comedy movie, Aces Goes Places, in which Hui also starred. The fever-pitch atmosphere continued with one of Tam’s 1980s hits Sweet Love, as the dynamic duo swayed with a crew of dancers and sang with an energy reminiscent of their concerts of yesteryear.
