TAIPEI - Hot on the heels of her first album of original material in 12 years comes more good news for fans of home-grown singer Kit Chan.

She will return to the Singapore Indoor Stadium for the finale of her current tour. This comes 15 years after her first solo gig, That's Kit 2001 Concert, held there.

Tickets for the Spellbound Homecoming Concert on Sept 10 are priced from $78 to $188 and will be on sale from July 14, 10am onwards. To book, call 3158-7888 or visit www.spotshubtix.sg. They can also be bought at the Singapore Indoor Stadium box office and all Singpost outlets.

The Spellbound tour, her first regional undertaking, had kicked off in Singapore in June last year following her high-profile stint on the popular China television competition I Am A Singer.

After the launch of new album The Edge Of Paradise in Xinyi, Taipei, earlier this month, Chan, 43, chats with The Straits Times over coffee and pastries.

She says that the homecoming show will be "more of an extravaganza" with big-scale production for the lights, costumes and technical effects. Of course, there will be songs from Paradise as well.

This is a departure from the more intimate shows she has been doing, but it barely fazes her.

"I discovered in Hong Kong and Guangzhou that I now have the ability to create intimacy even in a big space. I felt as if the space did not make the audience seem far away. I still stubbornly have no dancers and that means you cannot disconnect. You have to be on all the time."
