HÀ NỘI — Sơn Tùng M-TP, a Vietnamese singer behind many hits with millions of views on Youtube, will work with his Underground-style friends to launch the Sky Tour Project, a series of musical nights in three major cities – HCM City, Đà Nẵng and Hà Nội.
In his trans-Việt Nam tour, the singer will perform his hits like Hãy Trao Cho Anh (Give It to Me) – the song he performs with American rapper Snoop Dogg, Chạy Ngay Đi (Run Now) or Em Của Ngày Hôm Qua (You Come from Yesterday) together with his new songs. Notably, his old hits will be performed in new instrumental combinations.
At the press conference announcing the Sky Tour Project, Sơn Tùng M-TP revealed that it would not an individual show but a programme in which he would be accompanied by other artists like Justatee, Rhymastic, Tiên Tiên or Kay Trần.
“I do not aim at any huge targets in holding this tour but dedicate it to my fans’ affection. We artists want to create a ‘festival’ in which the audience can enjoy the music and dance together,” he said.
Not only performing, the Hãy Trao Cho Anh (Give It to Me) singer will also produce and participate in writing scripts for the programme. He also noted that his appearance in this show would be more mature that those in previous shows. Besides, the visual effects of the stage, demonstrated in the stage planning and international-standard light system, would receive thorough investment, he added.
“I work not only for my name as Sơn Tùng M-TP. I hope that I could collaborate with other artists to realise a dream – that the world will see, listen to a Vietnamese-language music video and recognise that Việt Nam has many talented people. V-Pop has not actually appeared on the world’s musical stage,” he said about his ambition after releasing his recent million-view video Hãy Trao Cho Anh (Give It to Me).
The Sky Tour Project will be organised in HCM City on July 28, Đà Nẵng on August 4 and Hà Nội on August 11.
