Veteran singer Fei Yu-ching, 63, affectionately known as “Xiao Ge” (literally “Little Brother”), stunned showbiz last week by announcing he is set to retire soon following a farewell concert tour. The tour will include five shows at the Taipei Arena and another two shows at the K-Arena scheduled for February and May next year.

Following in the footsteps of his older sister, singer Jenny Fei — now a nun named Master Hengshu — Fei began his singing career at the age of 17. He went on to greatly expand his fan base by hosting variety shows with his elder brother, TV show host Chang Fei. With a career spanning over four decades, he is one of the most celebrated Taiwanese artists in the Chinese world.

In his statement, Fei wrote that it is time for him to slow down, so he can learn how to enjoy his life in relative peace and quiet.
