Outlandish costumes are part and parcel of Mui`s concerts.
AFTER 20 years in the music business, Hong Kong singer-actress Anita Mui proved that she is still Asia's Queen of Pop.
At her Fantasy Gig 2002 concert at Genting's Arena of Stars on May 17 and 18, Mui entertained the capacity crowd with renditions of her well-known hits as well as some new numbers.
Old favourites were updated with contemporary dance beats while her new songs were not short on drama and pomp.
Despite some problems with the sound system, Mui and her dancers never let up on the energy and excitement, going through various costume changes and scenarios without paying heed to the less than desirable sound.
Their job was to put on a power-packed performance, and they did just that.
Special guest Grasshopper, the trio whom Mui discovered at a talent contest in Hong Kong in 1985, worked up the already excited crowd even more, and did not disappoint in their individual duets with Mui.
The four of them later performed a cover of Ben E. King- Stand By Me, a staple at Mui's concerts.
The two-and-a-half hour concert was rousingly concluded with a raucous 14-minute encore featuring a medley of Mui's hits, including her now-classic Cantonese version of Sheena Easton's Strut.
The ear-splitting encore was admittedly a little too loud and long, but Mui, Grasshopper and her dancers managed to get the crowd up on their feet, with some eager fans rushing to the edge of the stage.
Judging from the sweaty but satisfied faces of the audience at the end of the show, it was clear that Mui had not lost her ability to connect with her fans even after two decades.
後來師徒四個一起表演了 Ben E. King 的[Stand By Me], 這首是阿梅演唱會的必唱歌曲。
在最後十四分鍾的 安哥 部份，阿梅演繹了連串名曲，包括了廣東版本 Sheena Easton's Strut. 兩個半小時的精彩演出結果在熱烈氣氛、掌聲中結束。
