Cantonese pop heavenly king, Andy Lau (劉德華), repaid his fans this year with a concert series after he cancelled the tour last year due to the injury he suffered from being thrown off a horse. The mega star held his 14th concert on December 28th at the Hong Kong Coliseum. While performing the song, “If One Day” (如果有一天), he had to stop mid-way as he couldn’t continue due to an infection in his throat. He tells the crowd, “I really can’t continue singing. Please excuse me. I’m really sorry. My doctor suggested that it’s best if I didn’t sing. So after I finish singing this song, today’s concert will be cancelled.”
He made the harsh decision to cancel yesterday’s concert as well as the remaining concerts that would’ve taken place on the 29th and 30th. Andy Lau was in tears as he bowed and apologized to his fans. His wife, Carol Chu, who was also in attendance, got up from her seat and clapped for her husband. While his fans were sad about the cancellation, they also understood his health came first. Aside from his fans, celebrities such as Shu Qi, Sammi Cheng, Leo Ku, and others also showed their support for Andy Lau on Weibo.
