Two of Hong Kong’s greatest ever Cantopop artistes, Alan Tam and Sam Hui, will be performing together in Malaysia for the very first time next month.
Born in Panyu, China in 1948, Hui is considered to be the first ever major Cantopop star.
He signed his first recording contract with Hong Kong’s Diamond Records when he was 19, performing with a band called The Lotus.
After the band broke up, he then signed with Polydor Records in 1970 and released the single Time Of The Season.
He would go on to score numerous hits as a solo artiste, including Choi San Dou, Guai Ma Siong Seng, Tsim Sha Tsui Suzie, Tin Choi Yu Pak Chi and Pun Kam Pat Liong.
Four years younger than Hui, Tam first burst onto the Asian entertainment scene as a member of the 1970s pop group The Wynners, and is one of the most respected artistes in Hong Kong, where he is known as “The Principal” (or hao jiung in Cantonese) to his fellow artistes and fans.
Tam has written more than 800 songs over a five-decade career, many of them huge hits across Asia, including Misty Love, Love Trap, Late Spring and Can’t Forget You.
Tam continues to perform regularly and produce albums even till today, with his last effort being last year’s Duets.
It will be the first time Tam and Hui are performing together in Malaysia, having held their joint Happy Together concert series in Hong Kong over the past year.
Sam & Tam Happy Together – Classic Express will be held on Dec 22 at 8pm at Axiata Arena, Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur.
Tickets, priced at RM888, RM788, RM668, RM568, RM448, RM338 and RM238 (exclude RM4 ticket fee), are available via www.myticket.asia, 03 9223 3667, and authorised ticket outlets.
