This will be his first solo concert comeback after a three-year hiatus, and he will be singing his biggest hits as well as newer tunes, such as "Lover A" and "Am I Really In Your Heart".
The 55-year-old, who first rose to stardom when he emerged as runner-up in the annual New Talent Singing Awards in 1986. In 2004, Hui was named as one of the "New Four Heavenly Kings", replacing the honour once awarded to Hong Kong pop icons Jacky Cheung, Andy Lau, Aaron Kwok, and Leon Lai.

Kit Chan's Little Things 30th Anniversary Concert to debut new song
Meanwhile, 50-year-old Chan will be celebrating her 30th anniversary as a singer with a three-night concert titled "Little Things - Kit Chan 30th Anniversary Concert" at the Sands Theatre from 8 to 10 September.
The 100-minute concerts will feature a set list of fan favourites, songs that have never been performed before, as well as the first live rendition of Chan’s 30th-anniversary song, which was specially written by long-time friend and music collaborator Tom Pan.
The concerts will be under the musical direction of Bang Wenfu, who had previously worked on Chan’s 25th anniversary concert, studio albums and singles. Outfits for the concert will be designed by Paris-based Singaporean designer Andrew Gn.
"I realised it was really all the little things that mattered that kind of led me to this point, and not big milestones," said Chan, upon reflecting on her long career in the music and entertainment business.
Tickets for her concert range from $88 to $672 excluding booking fees, and will be available from Friday (26 May) via Marina Bay Sands' ticketing website and SISTIC.
