Jacky Cheung reminds us why he’s the ‘God of Songs’ at encore Singapore concert

(Toggle) It was a serious case of déjà vu as Jacky Cheung kicked off his first of three encore concerts in Singapore last night (Feb 9). Having brought the same tour to Singapore last February (we were in attendance for his 56th concert in the tour), he brought all the grandness back to our sunny shores once again.

For a first-time Jacky Cheung concert-goer, this writer chose to go in without watching any videos of his previous concerts, lest the element of surprise be spoiled. However, after entering the concert venue, we realised that the majority of the 10,000-strong audience were here for a second (or even third and fourth) time for ‘A Classic Tour’ alone.

The reason for their repeated attendance was clear once the lights dimmed at 8pm sharp (here’s a PSA for those who are attending the show tonight and/or tomorrow – the organisers have confirmed that all concerts will start on the dot, so being late means you’ll miss out on his opening act).

Making his appearance in a dapper suit complete with top hat, his baritone vocals were as on-point as ever. He, along with his team of 24 dancers (plus six acrobatic dancers) and 32-man orchestra, worked the four-sided stage like the professionals they are, ensuring that every corner of the Singapore Indoor Stadium would be captivated by their performance.

As the saying goes, the devil is in the details – and Jacky showed to us once again why he’s not just the ‘God of Songs’ (a title bestowed to him in Hong Kong), but also an amazing showman who knows how to keep his audiences coming back for more.

For example, there were 11 huge LCD screens that showed different views of the stage – the four bigger ones suspended high enough for those in the balcony to check out the close-up shots of Jacky, along with the seven smaller ones arranged in a heptagon closer to the stage which alternated between showing close-up shots, to top-down views, gave the audiences in the arena and terrace level a different experience altogether.
