Review: Rene Liu at The Venetian Macao
Fans can see from her social media feeds how much multitalented Taiwanese singer Rene Liu is enjoying married life – and it hasn’t dimmed her passion for singing.
Starting out from Quanzhou in 2015, Liu hit New York, Los Angeles, Beijing and Hong Kong on this sold-out world tour. On January 17, Liu returned to Macao, bringing a highly anticipated performance to the Cotai Arena at The Venetian.
Liu’s career spans two decades and, in that time, she has released more than a dozen albums while juggling acting, directing and writing. But her achievements haven’t changed who she is at heart.
Based on the theme of taking the initiative in looking for a breakthrough, the Renext 2017 World Tour set comprised Liu’s best loved hits. However, this time round, the concerts were about more than just the songs: for the first time, she also turned her hand to the lighting and sound design.
The tour also included a performance at the Lincoln Center for Performing Arts in New York – making Liu only the third Mandopop vocalist to have performed at the venue after the legendary Teresa Teng and “Godfather of Music” Jonathan Lee.
Liu led an adoring audience from the whimsical highs of such songs as her rock ‘n’ roll opener, Crazy for Love, to soulful ballads such as Step Aside. She left the best for last, driving the crowd wild with a heartfelt rendition of Sarah Chen’s Dream To Awakening.
