HÀ NỘI — After 18 years working in the entertainment industry, Vietnamese pop singer Ưng Hoàng Phúc will perform live for the first time on March 3 at Việt Xô Friendship Labour Cultural Palace, 91 Trần Hưng Đạo Street, Hoàn Kiếm District.
After the boy band 1088, which Phúc was a member of, parted in 2002, Phúc joined musician and manager Nguyễn Quang Huy’s entertainment firm as a solo artist. There, he earned a lot of success with hits including Tôi đi tìm tôi (Travelling to Find Myself), Mỗi người một nơi (My Breakup Song) and Nếu ta còn yêu nhau (If We Were Still In Love). However, after six years working together, the singer decided to leave the company.
For his first live show, Phúc invited Huy to direct the show. He said Huy, who was by his side from the first days of his career, was the best choice, “I believe no one but Huy can understand and help me describe all my inner feelings and expectation through this live show.”
This is the first and biggest live show in Phúc’s career, which took lots of time to prepare, “To be able to choose songs which have been attached to my career over the past 18 years was not easy at all, since they had to link each path of my career. I hope the audience can enjoy familiar songs in the most fulfilled emotion,” said Phúc.
The show will also feature pop singers Phạm Quỳnh Anh, Nguyễn Thu Thủy and the band Oplus. Phúc will also perform with pop singers Quang Dũng and Thu Minh.
“All of my joy, sorrow, and hidden emotion over the last 18 years will be shown in the live show this March,” he added. — VNS
