Despite talk that the four Heavenly Kings will reunite on stage for the 25th anniversary celebration of Hong Kong's return to Chinese rule on Friday (July 1), it looks like only Andy Lau will be at the gala event.

According to a trailer of the event released by Hong Kong broadcaster TVB on Sunday, the list of performing celebrities includes Lau but not the other three Heavenly Kings – Aaron Kwok, Jacky Cheung and Leon Lai.

The last time all four Hong Kong stars – who were huge in the 1990s and 2000s – performed together was at the 10th anniversary concert in 2007.

This year's gala event will have three hosts – Liza Wang, Luk Ho Ming and Janis Chan.

Besides Lau, other performers include Alan Tam, Nicholas Tse, Law Kar Ying, Chinese pianist Lang Lang and singer Vincy Chan, a contestant of Singapore's Project Superstar singing contest in 2005.

There had been talk earlier that the four Heavenly Kings would perform together at the gala event as an unverified list of performers circulating online had listed all their names. – The Straits Times/Asia News Network
