Roll With It

Prime seats on the tour bus, permanent backstage passes, fully perfected stage dives, and unlimited booze to not only consume but pour over your head as and when you pleased…you were ready to take the world by storm as a dedicated, bona fide groupie. Alas, your destiny card had a different plan and before you knew it, the dreadlocks quickly dissolved into a shiny bob, your hot pants and tank top turned into a straight cut suit and 9am-6pm were no longer the hours you rocked in and caught up on slumber, but the hours you had to be at work! This is soo not how it was meant to be. Forget global financial meltdowns and the rest of the world’s foibles, it’s time to bring out those hot pants, let down your hair and get ready to roll with it once again. A wave of rock stars and divas are set to descend on HK and guess who’ll be joining them for the ride?

Rod Stewart – March 7
Do Ya Think He’s Sexy? We do, and we have Reason to Believe he’s coming to town! Rod Stewart will be bringing his iconic voice, electrifying stage presence and chart-topping hits to the Hong Kong stage in “Rod Stewart Rocks The Greatest Hits Live”. He may not be Forever Young but his classic rock and roll will always have a place in This Old Heart of Mine. (Sat Mar 7, 8pm AsiaWorld-Arena, http://www.hkticketing.com)

Duffy – March 20
She may be a long way from Warwick Avenue, but Hong Kong is just a Stepping Stone on the Grammy Award winning Welsh singer’s way to worldwide stardom. Duffy’s addictive hit, Mercy, catapulted to the top of the charts and we’re quite sure that her retro music style and gripping contemporary soul sound will have us all begging, not for Mercy, but for more!

Journey – March 20
Don’t Stop Believin’ in Journey! With new lead singer Arnel Pineda in place, they’re as hot as ever and we are ready to welcome them with Open Arms. With their newly released album, Revelation, and classic hits like Faithfully, Any Way You Want It, and Separate Ways, this band’s got staying power that goes on, and on, and on and on… (Fri Mar 20, 8:30pm, Cotai Arena, http://www.cotaiticketing.com)

Coldplay – March 25
It was a Rush of Blood to the Head when we heard that the legendary Coldplay would be back in Hong Kong for one-night-only. Their newest album and hit song by the same name, Viva La Vida, has just come out of the 51st Grammy Awards with three top honors; Best Rock Album, Song Of The Year, and Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group. Clocks are ticking as we breathlessly await their arrival. (Wed Mar 25, 8pm, AsiaWorld-Arena, http://www.hkticketing.com).

John Legend – April 10
The Legend continues…After his private concert this fall at the Landmark Mandarin, Six-time Grammy Award winning recording artist John Legend has been given the Green Light to come back to Asia, bringing “The Evolver World Tour” to Macau for one-night-only. If You’re Out There, you might as well stay for the Official After Party at the Venetian Pool, featuring special performances and world class DJs.

After next month’s wild antics, we may even have to look into recreating your dreadlocks!
