Experience the great Sam Hui performing live
Sam Hui began releasing music in the early 1970s, after having worked on a series of comedies with his brothers. His music rapidly gained popularity across Hong Kong and he became a byword for thoughtful yet humorous songs that made often difficult subjects seem more approachable. Some of Sam Hui's greatest hits tackled political or social problems that were important during the last three decades of the 20th century: songs such as 'Song of Water Use' and 'Could Not Care Less About 1997' looked at serious events in a satirical manner. Using the influences of Western pop music (his idols included Elvis Presley and The Beatles), he updated the Cantopop genre and made clever use of the symbolism inherent in Chinese language to get thoughtful messages across. No Cantopop singer had ever done something like this before - and for this reason, Sam Hui is still revered as the 'God of Song' today. Despite having gone into retirement in 1992, he returned to the stage in 2003 and has been going strong ever since. You might not believe it, but it is true: over fifty years since he made his official debut, you still have the opportunity to get your hands on Sam Hui tickets.
Don't miss Sam Hui in concert
Despite his official Hong Kong retirement concert, Sam Hui continued to play shows in Hong Kong and Canada, after which he really did take a ten-year break. During this time, other singers such as Jacky Cheung, Alan Tam, Leon Lai and Leslie Cheung came to prominence, but as his sold-out comeback concert proved, Sam Hui was definitely not forgotten. Able to perform in Cantonese and English in his melodious tenor voice, he can play various instruments including the guitar, violin, piano and drums, and has composed hundreds, if not thousands, of songs for himself and others. Maintaining his charming brand of humour mixed with philosophy, and still with his beautiful vocals and up-to-date sound, Sam Hui will bowl you over with live renditions of both his classic and new songs.
