Concert poster

I grew up listening to these dudes. How can I miss their concert when I hear that two of the disbanded Beyond members, Paul Wong (黄贯中) and Yip Sai Wing (叶世荣) are getting together for a concert at Lunar?

Back in my teens, I will buy all their albums and go for their autograph sessions whenever they come to Singapore. I won’t call myself a junkie as I don’t scream and go gaga when I see them, but I do appreciate their brand of rock music.

The concert opens with a few numbers from Sai Wing’s solo albums. Sai Wing is better known as a drummer than a singer and it was rather weird seeing him with a mic.

Paul then took the stage with his guitar and belted a few numbers from his solo albums. This guy is rock steady and still looks as stylo-milo as he was a decade ago.

Lunar was packed

Then came the moment the crowd were all waiting for – the two members of Beyond got together to belt out some of Beyond’s greatest hits. The crowd went totally wild. Here’s two videos which I recorded to share. Enjoy:
