TOUCH MI SAMMI CHENG WORLD TOUR LIVE IN SINGAPORE

Cantopop queen Sammi Cheng is finally back to hold a concert here after five years.

This time, she will be greeting fans as Mrs Andy Hui, wife of the Hong Kong singer whom she had dated for the longest time. If the rumours of her being pregnant are true, could the dancing diva still deliver a high-octane show with upbeat tunes such as Bang Bang Bang? Feel-good ballads such as Forever Beauty from the movie Love On A Diet are no problem, of course. WHERE: Singapore Indoor Stadium MRT: Stadium WHEN: Sat, 8pm ADMISSION: $208 & $178 from Sports Hub Tix. Go to www.sportshub.com.sg or call 3158-7888), Sports Hub Box Office & SingPost outlets
