KUALA LUMPUR: Legendary pop star Sir Cliff Richard is pretty sensitive to his Asian fans, as he embarks on his Asian leg of his ongoing “Wanted World Tour”.
The pop icon assured that his fans will get a little of the many facets of his 45-year career when he performs at the Genting Arena of Stars on Sunday.
“Every time I go on tour, I find it a big challenge to know how to do something and what I should say to the public,” the 62-year-old British pop star said yesterday during a phone conference from Sydney, where he has just completed the Australasian part of his tour.
“When I come to South-East Asia, I’m actually changing the show considerably, because I know that South-East Asia has not seen me so much so therefore I must perform some of the older hits,” he said.
The last time he appeared for a concert here, for instance, was in 1995 at Stadium Negara, Kuala Lumpur.
“So while in Australia, Britain and Europe, I have not sung Summer Holiday, Evergreen Tree, Living Doll and many others, when I come to South-East Asia I decided I should sing those songs and hope the fans will be pleased.”
Richard performs in Singapore on Friday before coming to Malaysia. The other stops will include Hong Kong, Seoul, Tokyo and Bangkok.
