Finally can upload this post about Wu bai 伍佰 China Blue concert at Genting Highland. Four of us Myin, Lynn, Ahkwong were rushing to Genting. Rooms were fully booked that day and by no choice we book Arwana Hotel due to student holidays now.
Before the show start I am here to tell a bit about Wu bai. born 14 January 1968) is the stage name of a rock singer from Taiwan, Wu Chun-lin (Chinese: 吳俊霖; pinyin: Wǔ Jǔnlín; Taiwanese: Ngô· Chùn-lîm). He forms a band with China Blue, comprised of Dean “Dino” Zavolta on drums, Yu Ta-hao (余大豪 Yú Dàháo, aka “Big Cat”) on keyboards, Chu Chien-hui (朱劍輝 Zhū Jiànhuī) on bass guitar and Wu Bai on guitar and lead vocals.
Wu Bai was born in Suantou, Lioujiao — literally “Garlic Village” — in Chiayi County in south-central Taiwan. His father was a retired Taiwan Sugar Corporation worker and his mother a betel nut vendor, and he had two younger brothers who died tragically in a car accident. His nickname Wu Bai, meaning “five hundred,” derives from several stories, none of which can be proven to be fact: one story says the name came from his early academic success when he scored 100 points on each of five examination subjects.However, an interest in music in his teenage years led to a decline in his academic performance and he failed to pass the university entrance examinations. Another story says he used to charge 500 Taiwan Dollars for his early concerts. Another story says he was fat as a high school student and the local kids teased him for weighing “like 500 kilograms”.
In 2003, Wu Bai married Chen Wen-pei, his girlfriend of over 10 years, in a private ceremony in Fukuoka, Japan.
Following by that, I heard my favourite songs 愛情的盡頭 (The End of Love), 浪人情歌 (Wanderer’s Love Song), 樹枝孤鳥 (Lonely Tree, Lonely Bird)……many many. It reminded those day while I was linsten his song during secondary school. I can felt all my cells was burning!!!!!!!
The whole concert duration was 2 hours ++ It was a wonderful night!!!! Really want to see again!!! Want to see more pictures from Wubai can link to this site www.blog.ahkwong.com. My post end up here.
