To celebrate the 25th anniversary of her 1994 debut, singer CoCo Lee is holding a concert at the Taipei Arena tonight. It has been nine years since her last concert in the same venue. Meanwhile, CoCo’s two-CD greatest hits set “You & I” will be released today, and seven of her top-selling albums are set to be reissued simultaneously.
CoCo is one of the most celebrated singers in the Chinese-speaking world. For tonight’s show, she is reportedly inviting hit singer Jolin Tsai onstage as a special guest. CoCo will visit again as a celebrity endorser when Line Music launches services in Taiwan during the summer vacation.
Irish band Boyzone will also stage a show at the Linkou Stadium of Taoyuan’s National Taiwan Sport University tomorrow. The show is part of the band’s last Asian tour, as it bids farewell to fans before it breaks up in October. Singer Brian McFadden, a former member of Irish boyband Westlife, will be the support act.

A group of high school students sued the College Entrance Examination Board, claiming its advanced placement tests are unfair to teens trapped at home by the coronavirus pandemic without adequate computers or Internet connections. The board, which offers college-level curriculum for courses and exams to high school students, and Educational Testing Services (ETS), which administers the advanced placement exams, discriminated against students without sufficient resources, those in remote locations and the disabled, according to a proposed class-action complaint filed last Tuesday in a Los Angeles federal court. “It is unrealistic to think that all students have quiet, private spaces at home in
