The Best Of Hong Kong

Spring 2016 is jam-packed with concerts coming to Hong Kong, including performances from veteran Cantopop band The Wynners over Chinese New Year between February 6 and 13, Madonna on February 17, Mika on February 22, Death Cab for Cutie on March 1, and Bon Iver on March 8.

It’s not a Hong Kong concert without some awkward dancing, LED signs, and screaming teenage fans. Yep, sounds about right! Here are a few more telltale signs you’re at a Hong Kong concert.

1. The Hong Kong Coliseum feels more like a laser light show…

2. Before the concert starts, everyone’s sitting down calmly as if they’re about to watch a documentary.

4. You can’t concentrate on the singers because everyone’s holding LED signs that say:”I LOVE YOU [INSERT CANTOPOP STAR ] MARRY ME!”

5. You also can’t hear the songs, because a fervent fan club is screeching the lyrics at deafening decibels.

6. Momentary lulls are filled with “EASOOOON” and “I LOOOOOVE YOU”.

7. The person next to you is snapping away with a DSLR, and then magically selling his pics right after the show.
