PolyGram stars reunited for 30th anniversary concert

2 Sep – Priscilla Chan, Shirley Kwan, Hacken Lee and the Wynners were among the stars that performed at the PolyGram reunion concert that was held recently.

As reported on Wenweipo website, the PolyGram Forever Live concert was held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre to celebrate its 30th anniversary.

Although many of its resident stars made an appearance to perform for the said event, unfortunately, other big names such as Jacky Cheung, Leon Lai, and the Grasshoppers were unable to make it due to conflicting schedules.

Among the memorable performances of the night included Alan's opening number, "Friends", as a symbol of friendship in the PolyGram family, while Linda Wong and Karen Tong performed their friends' Vivian Chow and Vivian Lai's classic songs apart from their own.

While speaking to the media about the absence of several PolyGram artistes, Alan admitted, "It is indeed regrettable because PolyGram had Jacky, Leon, the Grasshoppers and others, but now everyone belongs to different companies. It's hard to arrange the schedule and I can't force them to join us."

However, the singer stated he still cherishes their chance for a reunion, and revealed that they will also perform a Mainland tour in near future.

    Driving a $900,000 Porsche 918 Spyder to the future

    It’s more than just its inherent speed, or the whooshing noise that fills the cabin like a school choir jamming with James Hetfield. It’s what it represents in an industry full of skeptics. It’s a portal into the future – a time capsule left by some mad scientist born decades too soon. It’s something that shouldn’t exist. And yet it does.

    5 Unanswered Questions About Jesus

    As Christians worldwide gather for Easter to celebrate their belief in the death and rebirth of Jesus, researchers continue to delve into the mysteries that surround the man. The following are five questions about Jesus that, for now, at least, remain unanswered. In 2008, astronomer Dave Reneke argued that the Star of Bethlehem (a celestial event long associated with Jesus' birth) may have been Venus and Jupiter coming together to form a bright light in the sky. Other researchers have claimed that a similar conjunction between Saturn and Jupiter occurred in October of 7 B.C. Still others have claimed that Jesus was born in the spring, based on stories about shepherds watching over their flocks in fields on the night of Jesus' birth — something they would have done in the spring, not the winter.
