(Macao, April 27, 2013) - Considered a pioneer of Cantopop in Hong Kong, superstar Sam Hui performed at The Venetian® Macao-Resort-Hotel's CotaiArena™ Saturday evening at his Sam Hui Concert Live in Macao 2013.
Never one to disappoint his fans, Sam Hui set the pace for his show with such well known hits as "Half Catty," "The Contract" and "Drifter's song." Loyal fans sang along to their favourites, swaying in unified rhythm. Sam Hui's incredible on-stage magnetism and energy kept the CotaiArena rocking for hours.
Hui, a highly-respected Cantopop legend in Hong Kong, is also a songwriter and film actor. He is credited with popularising Cantopop by the use of Cantonese jargon and slang in his lyrics to depict various current issues in society as well as to recount love stories. In May 1983, he performed at the Hong Kong Coliseum, making him the first singer to hold a solo concert at the entertainment venue. Over the decades, he has contributed a wealth of Cantonese hits to pop culture such as "The Private Eyes," "Silence is Golden," "Genius and Idiot" and "Made in Hong Kong," which continue to remain all-time favourites. April's concert was the superstar's third at the CotaiArena, having performed there in 2009 and 2010.
