Cantopop legend George Lam is celebrating 40 years in the music industry with a world tour that will come to the Arena of Stars in Genting Highlands on Sept 17.
At 68, Lam continues to wow audiences with his power-packed vocals. He kick-started his anniversary tour at the Hong Kong Coliseum in January this year, selling out all four nights.
To commemorate his four decades in the music industry, the veteran singer-songwriter even recorded a new concert theme song, which is a medley of his popular hits in the vein of his much-loved “10 minutes, 12 inches”.
For the past four decades, Lam and his songs have remained popular in Hong Kong and he has won several awards at the RTHK Top 10 Gold Songs Awards. In 1994, in recognition of his numerous contributions to the music scene, Lam was awarded the Golden Needle Award, the highest form of recognition in the Hong Kong music industry.
Apart from an illustrious singing career, Lam is also a popular actor who has starred in numerous films and TV series; he received a nod for Best Actor at the 2nd Hong Kong Film Awards for Boat People (1982).
Besides Malaysia, Lam plans to take his anniversary tour to Singapore, America, Canada, and Macau.
Organised by Star Planet, the George Lam 40th Anniversary Live in Malaysia 2016 will be held at Arena of Stars, Genting Highlands on Sept 17 at 8.30pm.
