The irrepressible, irreplaceable and impossibly impeccable Alan Tam will be celebrating his 40th year in show business with a concert in Malaysia on Aug 1.

Organised by Star Planet, the Alan Tam 40th Anniversary World Tour 2015 will be held at the Putra Indoor Stadium, Kuala Lumpur.

Tam cemented his status as one of Cantopop’s greatest artistes in the 1980s and 1990s with hits such as Love In Autumn, Illusion, Foggy Love, Flower In Water and Don’t Say Goodbye.

Today, Tam remains as well loved by Cantopop fans as ever. Famous for claiming he is “forever 25 years old”, the 64-year-old showed tremendous stamina for his age when he played 13 consecutive sell-out shows at the Coliseum Hong Kong early this year.

Although this will not be Tam’s first time in Malaysia, it has been almost four years since his last concert here in 2011. During that three-hour show, which was held at Putra Indoor Stadium as well, he performed 40 songs. This time, Tam is collaborating with the Philharmonic Orchestra to give his timeless classics a different, more elegant spin.

Tickets for the concert are priced from RM158. For more information, or to purchase tickets, call 03-9223 3667 or 03-9222 8811, or visit www.starplanet.com.my or ticketcharge.com.my.
