Hong Kong Heavenly King Andy Lau will perform four concerts at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, from Sept 25 to 28, as part of his latest My Love Andy Lau World Tour.

This marks the superstar's return to Singapore after 11 years. His last concert in Singapore was in 2008, also at the same venue.

His current tour kicked off at the Hong Kong Coliseum in December last year and tickets to all 20 shows were snapped up shortly after going on sale.

The solo concerts were his first following a 2017 horse-riding accident, in which he had been thrown off a horse during a shoot for a tea commercial in Thailand and suffered multiple fractures in his pelvis.

He spent nearly two months in hospital and was out of action for more than half a year.

In August 2017, he attended his first film premiere in Hong Kong after the incident for the action film The Adventurers (2017), which he starred in.

During the Hong Kong concerts of his current tour, Lau sang Cantonese hits such as You Are My Woman and If One Day as well as Mandarin numbers such as Forget Love Potion and Chinese People.

Different scenarios will be created through video projection and lighting effects.

A giant projection screen will cover more than half of the arena's ceiling, showcasing various visual effects and artworks, including a picture drawn by Lau's seven-year-old daughter, Hanna.
