Fans of C-pop and Rock music, have we got a surprise in store for you! First bringing A-Lin’s ‘Sonar’ concert to us last year, InMusic have just announced that they will be bringing Taiwanese God of Rock Jam Hsiao to Melbourne and Sydney in May for his IMBA Rock and Romance concert.
Known for his uniquely chiselled and rough vocals, Hsiao first came to be popular when he placed highly on the Taiwanese reality singing show ‘One Million Stars’, but has progressed in leaps and bounds since then, releasing a slew of albums and taking home “Best Male Mandarin Singer” at the 2013 Golden Melody Awards.
He will be taking to the stage at the Melbourne Convention Exhibition Centre in Melbourne on the 12th of May and 14th of May at the Olympic Park Sport Centre in Sydney. This will be the first time Hsiao has stepped back onto Australian soil for a performance since his last world tour five years ago.
The concert is named ‘Imba’ which is short for ‘imbalance’, to discuss the imbalance that appears between the concepts of ‘rock’ and ‘romance’. While many see these two genres as conflicting, Jam attempts to bring these two together, creating a romantic take on the traditional rock genre.
Hsiao has also been doing his time on the China reality show circuit, joining the latest season of the “Battle Of The Voice” as a judge and “Sound Of My Dream”, where he wins audiences’ hearts with his boyish, cheeky smiles while amazing with his electrifying vocals.
I’m sure one will be able to expect him to belt out some of his own hits and those he performed on these shows during the concert, such as “Marry Me”, “In The Future Let’s Not Be Friends”, and “Princess”.
Having personally attended one of his concerts a while back, I was astounded by his pristine live vocals as well as his inimitable stage presence, despite his small build. InMusic, who’s the organiser for this concert series certainly aren’t sending no second-class acts Down Under.
