Concertgoers are in luck, as they will have quite a choice this weekend. Chinese singer Li Ronghao launched his “An Ideal World Tour Concert” in Beijing last year, touring more than 30 cities at home and abroad. The gifted Li, winner of the Best New Artist at the 2014 Golden Melody Awards, will hold a concert at the Taipei Arena for the first time tomorrow.

South Korean pop group Highlight is also putting on a show at the Sinjhuang Gymnasium in New Taipei City tomorrow. All five members of the group, previously known as Beast, terminated their contracts with their previous management agency last year, and are now staging a comeback after renaming the group.

Meanwhile, US rock band One Republic is visiting Taiwan for the first time for a concert at the Taipei Nangang C3 Parking Lot this Sunday. The band has gained popularity with its charismatic live performances, and all the tickets for the show are standing room only, so fans can rock their bodies to their hearts’ content.
