To celebrate the 35th anniversary of his 1984 debut, Hong Kong superstar Aaron Kwok put on two shows at the Taipei Arena on Friday and Saturday last week. With a high-tech stage costing over NT$200 million (about US$6.4 million), one of the most extravagant stages at the venue, Kwok gave his fans two amazing nights to remember.

Kwok did a motorcycle TV commercial in Taiwan in 1990 and shot to fame overnight in the Chinese-speaking world. He and Canto-pop superstars Andy Lau, Jacky Cheung and Leon Lai have been dubbed Hong Kong’s “Four Heavenly Kings.” In addition to his successful music career, he won the Best Actor Award at the Golden Horse Awards in 2005 and 2006.

Meanwhile, Lai will put on his first show at Taipei Arena on Dec. 14. It has been 25 years since the Cantonese superstar’s previous show in Taiwan, and he is the last among the four “kings” to hold a concert at the venue.
