S.H.E | AARON YAN FOREVER STARS 2015

This double bill of label-mates has girl group S.H.E sharing the stage with a member of boy band Fahrenheit Aaron Yan. S.H.E are still going strong even as Hebe Tien, Selina Jen and Ella Chen have released solo albums. Yan is carving out a solo singing career as well.

Apart from singing their own hits, it should be interesting to see whether Yan will team up with S.H.E for some songs.
