SINGAPORE - Chinese singer-songwriter Li Ronghao will perform a concert in Singapore on Oct 19, his second here after his first at The Max Pavilion two years ago.
The 33-year-old Mandopop star, known for his soulful singing style, reflective lyrics, is making a stop in Singapore as part of his If I Were Young World Tour.
The tour kicked off in Shanghai on March 16 this year, and has made stops in Xiamen and Dalian. The Singapore show will be its first stop outside China.
Fans at the show can expect to hear songs such as Quarrelsome Lovers and Poverty Or Wealth from his latest album Ear, as well as numbers such as Model and Stubborn Love from his older albums.
As the concert's chief planner and one of its directors, Li is personally involved in every aspect of the show, from its poster visual and setlist to stage design and effects.
