Taiwanese diva A-Mei held her AMeiZing Live World Tour at Kaohsiung, Taiwan last night, accomplishing the feat of being the first Chinese singer to throw a concert at the Kaohsiung World Games Main Stadium.
Despite an NT$83.9 million (S$3.52 million) set-up, which consists of a
four-storey tall rainbow hot balloon, a hundred-metre mobile stage, two
additional sets of costumes apart from those from her previous shows,
more than 50 songs performed and 45,000 fans in the arena, the media
focused primarily on her weight issues.
'Today's performance is different from usual," the 40-year-old lamented.
"Many cameras and pens are pointing at me. No matter how well I sang
and performed, the focus will still be on my figure.'
Although the songstress shared that she has been cycling religiously to
shed some pounds, she poked fun at herself, saying, 'I'm sorry if you
want me to be stick-thin. A-Mei can only be a singer and not a model.'
In related news, nearly 1000 people reportedly asked for refunds of
their tickets due to the inferior sound system at the concert. The
organizer clarified regarding this, 'We have yet to receive any feedback
of such at the moment.'
