Get Your Rocks Off

It’s ok to confess that from time to time, you sorta, kinda miss being in your high school band.  The rock star outfits (which seemed uber-cool at the time), the street cred, which deemed you high school royalty, the screaming fans chanting along to your own heart-felt lyrics, and the underlying sizzling chemistry between you and the brooding drummer…those were the days.  Alas, the life of a rocker wasn’t meant to be for you. But there’s no better time than the present to get your rocks off and let the head banging begin again, with a star studded line up of rock stars coming our way.

Bjork
It’s oh so quiet, and so peaceful until…the eccentric Icelandic trip-hop queen takes to the HK stage after a 10-year hiatus.  Her emotionally charged songs, dramatic performances and quirky disposition will have you falling in love, zing boom! (Thurs 28 Feb, 8pm. $480-$780 HK Ticketing. Asia World Arena, Chek Lap Kok)

Back Street Boys
Everybody, rock your bodyBackstreet’s back, alright! Having sold over 100 million records worldwide, the multi-award winning boy band sensation has returned with new moves, new soulful ballads and a new look that’s mighty fine.  It’s time to re-activate your fan club membership.  (Fri 29 Feb, 8pm. $480-$780 HK Ticketing. Asia World Arena, Chek Lap Kok)

Santana
Man it’s a hot one…as this Grammy Award winning legend returns to Hong Kong. Voted as one of the greatest guitarists of all time by Rolling Stone magazine, Santana’s passionate, intricate performances will get you the kind of lovin’ that could be so smooth. (Fri 7 March, 8pm. $390-$890 HK Ticketing. Asia World Arena, Chek Lap Kok.  Enquires: 2629 6240)

Arch Enemy
Looking to let off a bit of steam?  Why not try something a little edgier than yoga, and scream along to anthems of rebellion with this Swedish death metal band. It’s sure to be an exhilarating, eye-opening (and ear-popping!) experience.  (Tues 18 March, 8pm. $480-$580, HITEC, 1 Trademart Drive, Kowloon Bay. Enquiries: 2738 0135 http://www.music-wonderland.net)

Harry Connick Jr.
It had to be… him! Harry Connick Jr. is coming to town and hopefully he’ll save the last dance for us. With his world-renowned big band style, this New Orleans crooner will sweep you off your feet. (Wed 19 March, 8pm. $290-$690 HK Ticketing, HKCEC, Harbour Road, Wan Chai)

Maroon 5
The LA pop quintet are claiming to sound “sexier, sweeter and darker” than ever before.  Makes me wonder whether bopping around to these funky tunes while watching five hotties in action will make it harder to breathe. (Wed 19 March, 8pm.  $290-$690 HK Ticketing. Asia World Arena, Chek Lap Kok)

So get your rocks off, get your rocks off honey, shake it now now and get ‘em off downtown…we’ll see you there!
