HCM CITY – Vietnamese pop fans are looking forward to 911’s performances at an upcoming UK Festival held in September.
911 will perform for two nights, one each in Hà Nội and HCM City, along with other Vietnamese singers.
911 is a renowned British boy band formed in 1995 in London, consisting of Simon “Spike” Dawbarn, Lee Brennan, and Jimmy Constable. They have pocketed many hits such as How Do You Want Me To Love You, Don’t Make Me Wait, and I Do.
The group has also collaborated with Vietnamese singer Đức Phúc, known as the ballad Prince of Vietnam, on a Valentine version of the song I Do, which has reached 50 million views on Youtube.
The UK Festival 2023 with the theme “The UK - Việt Nam: Building a Better Future” is organised by the British Embassy and the British Consulate General to mark 50 years of diplomatic relations between the UK and Việt Nam and promotes education, trade, and sustainable development.
The festival will take place from September 9-10 at Đông Kinh Nghĩa Thục Square and Hoàn Kiếm Lake Walking Street in Hà Nội and will continue on the 16 in HCM City at Lê Lợi street. Both locations are free of charge for all ages.
Interesting activities will occur throughout the event, such as musical performances by British military bands, a scone-making showcase by the British Ambassador to Việt Nam Iain Frew, a symphony performance, a meeting with English former professional footballer Glen Johnson from the Liverpool team, and music nights featuring the 911 band and other artists.
It also includes British cultural activities, product promotions, exhibitions, and fashion showcases. There will be over 60 stalls displaying British products of education, healthcare, finance, retail, tourism, sustainable development, sports, culture, and cuisine.
The festival is also an opportunity for both countries to strengthen their bilateral relationship and boost cooperation on a multifaceted scale in the future, Frew said. – VNS
