It is one of those collaborations that
fans of Taiwanese Mandopop in Malaysia are truly fond of. So, Queen Of Pubs,
Tiger Huang and visually-impaired singer Ricky Hsiao are back to play in
Genting Highlands again some three years after their last show together there.
In a recent phone interview from Taiwan
– where the two are based – Huang, 53, entertained Malaysian media with her
incessant teasing of Hsiao, 40, who is still single.
Huang, who performs in Malaysia every
year, said she is delighted to work with Hsiao again. “I really wish we could
come and play here together every year. It’s taken us three years because we
are both very busy.
“Our schedules are tough to work
around, so it is not easy for us to get together like this. I usually sing
alone, so I am looking forward to our show together,” said Huang.
Echoing Huang’s thoughts, Hsiao added
that he always enjoyed their collaborations: “We’ve got great stage chemistry,
so we don’t really need to do any rehearsals. We just do whatever we feel like
doing. So each time we work together, our performance will turn out

Hsiao, who recently released a new
Hokkien album, said he is already working on his next music project, while
preparing for the Genting show.
On what to expect for their upcoming
show, Hsiao teased: “We’ve got a special guest. But, we can’t tell you who it
is. We want it to be a surprise for everyone.”
Despite repeated prodding, Hsiao would
not tell who they had in mind, and spoke instead about the updated songlist for
their set. “This time, we’ve got more new songs because we’ve released new
albums. We will also perform some songs by Malaysian songwriters. As for our older
songs, they will be given new arrangements,” said Hsiao, who became the first
blind Mandopop singer to play at Taipei Arena when he held his first solo
concert there in October last year.
