Hong Kong singer-songwriter Khalil Fong brings his Soulboy Lights Up World Tour to The Star Theatre on Oct 11. Tickets from $48 to $168 are available from Sistic.

This will be the first South-east Asian stop of a tour that has taken him to stages in Hong Kong and mainland China. He last performed in Singapore three years ago at a showcase for his album 15 (2011).

Fong has always created a melting pot of sounds by dipping into genres as diverse as soul, R&B, jazz, pop, rock and funk on fine records such as Back To Wonderland (2012) and 15. His hits include Love Love Love, Singalongsong and A Thousand Paper Cranes.

On Dangerous World (2014), his first album with new label Gold Typhoon Music, he is again fired up with the possibilities of musical cross-pollination on numbers such as the title dance track and the hip-hop-influenced Peace.
