Hong Kong Cantopop diva Joey Yung made “a dazzling return to The Venetian Macao’s Cotai Arena” Friday and Saturday night. According to a note from the organizers, “she enthralled the audience with a two-night run of her Suncity Group presents Joey Yung in Concert 1314 Macao show with her alluring melodies.” The show was “a great spectacle, and often had the crowd up on their feet, clapping and singing along.”
Yung kicked off the concert with “Disheartened,” which is one of her most-loved tunes, showing her trademark dynamism and powerful voice. That fired up the crowd for Yung’s set which presented some of her greatest hits including “Skylight,” “My Pride,” “Sequel” and “Wallpaper.” Yung’s legion of fans packed into the Cotai Arena and were clearly delighted by her concert, which was full of surprises and a great way to kick off 2015.
Enthusiasts were obviously thrilled to see Yung back at The Venetian and rocking the arena once more, just as she did back in 2012 as part of her Joey Yung Concert Number 6 – Macao.
Joey Yung started her career as a singer in 1999. Her vocal talent has gained her a loyal following and many accolades in the last 15 years, and her impressive record sales and the 90 concerts she has performed as part of this tour are testament to her enduring popularity.
