Joker Xue's wows his audience at the The Venetian Macao Cotai Arena

The soulful singer delivers a moving concert to more than 9,000 fans with his strong vocals and sweet melodies during his Macao stop of his first world tour, writes Lee Wing-sze

Mainland singer-songwriter Joker Xue moved a crowd of more than 9,000 fans with a night of his chart-topping, heart-wrenching songs on the Macao leg of his first world tour, the Joker Xue Skyscraper World Tour 2018, at The Venetian Macao Cotai Arena on September 30.

Inspired by the majesty of skyscrapers, the concert featured four chapters and opened with the piano-laden theme song Skyscraper. Xue, who has seven acclaimed studio recordings under his belt, went on playing one of his most popular love songs, Ugly, in his charming, deep and soft voice. The first chapter was followed by the melancholic numbers Beginner and Like the Wind.

The world tour kicked off during the summer in Beijing and toured several mainland cities before arriving in Macao. Later legs include Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom.

                  Xue will be continuing his tour in North America and Europe
 

Delivering fan favourites while suffering from mild flu, the stalwart performer sprinkled the evening with a selection of his familiar tunes such as Actor, Fox, Gentleman, Ambiguous Love and Animal World.

Formerly known as Jacky Xue, the singer performed one of his biggest hits, Snow With All My Heart, from his self-titled debut album released in 2006.

During the encore, the 35-year-old singer, who is also an actor and a music producer, reappeared on the stage to play An Unexpected Journey, Legend and Weirdo. He ended the night with his latest single, Violating Youth, before bidding the audience a fond farewell.
