Malaysian singer Michael Wong, or Guang Liang, was the latest in
a long line of star musicians to heat up Shanghai.
His show, held on Saturday night at the Shanghai Grand Stage,
was reportedly Wong's first solo concert on the Chinese mainland.
His parents flew in to Shanghai from Malaysia to celebrate the
special occasion, according to local website xmnext.com.
The Mandarin-speaking singer also performed a Shanghainese
version of his hit "Fairytale" (Tong Hua). Its funny lyrics turned
the venue into a house of laughter.
Yet more singers are set to follow in Wong's steps to sing in
Shanghai in the coming months. Among them are Taiwan pop-rock band
Mayday, whose show is scheduled for October 20; Jay Chou on
November 24 and Jacky Cheung on December 1.
