Famous Stars Genting Countdown Show


Featuring Ivy Ling Bo, Qing Shan, Pan Xiu Qiong and Zhang Di

For a memorable countdown on an evening of festivity and conviviality this yearend, you won't go wrong with Resorts World Genting. One recommended event especially if you are into timeless Chinese music: Famous Stars Genting Countdown Show featuring Ivy Ling Bo, Qing Shan, Pan Xiu Qiong and Zhang Di.

Join these veteran stars in welcoming the New Year at their concert to be held at the Arena of Stars on 31 December 2016, 8.30pm.  No doubt the older generation would enjoy going down memory lane with them but, hey, there's no reason younger music fans won't enjoy them as well.

All four singers are household names and you bet they can still hold their own against today's new generation of stars. There's the Taiwan-based Qing Shan who has long earned a place among overseas Chinese in Southeast Asia. Known as “King of Evergreens,” Qing Shan's most memorable hit is Lei De Xiao Hua. His was a long journey to success—he first stamped his mark by singing at military bases after having been inducted into the national service. After being discharged in 1968, he signed up with a recording company, following which he produced many unforgettable hit records.

The older generation would remember Hong Kong-based Ivy Ling Bo for her contributions towards the preservation of the Huangmei opera art form. Best known for a number of successful Huangmei opera films in the 1960s, she became a hot commodity notably for her role in The Love Eterne.

Then there's Pan Xiu Qiong who is best recognised as a bass singer. She made an impact when she became involved in the Hong Kong entertainment scene in the 1950s—singing in movies behind the scenes. In 1958, she recorded Qing Ren De Yan Lei that later became famously known as “the bass song.”

Zhang Di, for his part, is a Taiwanese singer and show host who is best known for his wit and spontaneity. He earned the nickname “King of Wit” because of his ability to improvise song lyrics at the drop of a hat. He is best known for the songs Mao Mao (The Fur Song) and Guo Jia (Country)—the latter has since become a patriotic anthem in China.  

Tickets for the concert are priced at RM438 (VIP), RM338 (PS1), RM288 (PS2), RM238 (PS3) and RM138 (PS4). There's a 20% discount for Genting Rewards Card (GRC) members via Genting Point and Rewards Point Redemption, and cash or credit card (applicable to all scales).

Child tickets are priced at RM50 and covers children of all ages including infants.
