It was an error that went on and on - and it is all good.

A misunderstanding at a press conference led to the formation of Cantopop double act Alan Tam and Hacken Lee, who held their first joint concert in 2003.

The labelmates held a joint press conference to announce their solo concerts and the reporters had mistakenly thought they were holding a show together.

Despite the generation gap - almost two decades separate them - it turned out to be the start of a successful collaboration with more than 100 shows in countries such as Malaysia, Canada and the United States.
