Hong Kong's God Of Songs Jacky Cheung (pic) is coming back to Malaysia to perform for his die-hard fans.

The 61-year-old is set to bring his Jacky Cheung 60+ Concert Tour to Kuala Lumpur over two weekends – Aug 11, 12, 13 and Aug 18, 19 and 20. Yes, that's right – six nights! (Hear that, Coldplay?)

His shows in KL, organised by Unusual Entertainment, will be held at the Axiata Arena, Bukit Jalil.

Tickets are priced at RM1,188, RM988, RM688 and RM388 (excludes booking fee and transaction fee) and will be available for general sale from May 26, 10am. To book, call +603-9212 4202 or go to my.bookmyshow.com/.

Large-scale shows

Cheung is known for his large-scale concert tours – in 1995, he performed 100 shows; in 2007, he held 105 concerts; while in 2010, it was 147.

In his last world tour called A Classic Tour – where he performed six sold-out shows in Malaysia in January as well as October 2018 – Cheung put on a total of 233 shows in 97 cities over a period of 27 months.

60+ marks Cheung’s 10th tour in a career that has spanned close to four decades. He is set to kickstart the tour in Macau on June 9, performing 12 shows.

In July, he will stage nine shows in Singapore, the most number of concerts staged by any singer at the Singapore Indoor Stadium in a single leg, according to The Straits Times.

It is reported that Singapore fans have snapped up a total of 72,000 tickets for the nine shows, with tickets ranging from S$168 to S$388 (RM570 to RM1,316).

In an exclusive interview with The Star in March, Cheung said he is nervous about going on tour again as this will be his first concert in four years.

“The first show is always the most worrying one because there are many uncertainties – if I’m physically fit enough, for example,” he said in the interview in Macau.

“For choreography, we will not be reducing the number of dances. It’s just that I will be dancing less... I’ll only dance when it is required,” the father of two added.

The singer said that some of his protective fans have voiced out concerns that he shouldn’t push himself too hard by dancing so much on stage.

“To be honest, I don’t find it troublesome. In fact, I’m quite happy to do it. Even though I will be dancing less this time, I will improvise a few things on my end to give audience a fresh concert experience,” he promised.
