HONG KONG • Hong Kong superstar Andy Lau  who turns 59 on Sunday, thrilled tens of thousands of fans in Singapore when he held four concerts in September last year, including one on his birthday.

The actor-singer usually celebrates the occasion with his fans, including those from his official fan club, Andy World Club.

However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, he will be unable to hold a physical celebration this year.

Lau, who is known for songs such as Water Of Forgotten Love and Thank You For Your Love, will instead be holding his first online birthday celebration, which will be broadcast on Andy World Club's website at 8pm on Sunday.

According to Hong Kong media, Lau was excited when discussing plans with his staff and has put in great effort in preparing for the event.

Last year, his fan-club birthday bash was cancelled in the light of tensions surrounding anti-government protests in Hong Kong.

Lau also had to cancel several of his scheduled concerts in Hong Kong and mainland China this year due to the pandemic.
