Next year will mark the 20th year of Taiwan’s “king of rock” Wu Bai’s showbiz career. He announced during a press conference in Greater Kaohsiung last Wednesday that he will celebrate the arrival of the New Year by singing at the 2012 Kaohsiung Countdown to New Year concert. It will be the first concert of his 20th year in show business and be dedicated to his fans in southern Taiwan.
Wu Bai and Golden Bell award-winning director Tsai Yueh-hsun were invited to attend last Wednesday’s press conference to promote the 2012 Kaohsiung Countdown to New Year concert. Under the theme of “hero,” the star-studded event will see, besides Wu Bai, a lineup of popular acts, including Wang Lee-hom, Kenji Wu, rock band Sodagreen, Aska Yang, Daniel Chan, and Huang Yi-ling.
Wu Bai launched his “More Earth” photography exhibition in Greater Kaohsiung earlier this year. The exhibition attracted tens of thousands of Greater Kaohsiung residents. Moved by their enthusiasm, Wu Bai and his band China Blue decided to give their first performance at the 2012 Kaohsiung Countdown to New Year concert as the band enters its 20th year.
