Andy Lau Spends New Year’s Day in Hospital
Andy Lau (劉德華) was originally scheduled to perform in a 20-session concert series at the Hong Kong Coliseum last month, but had to cancel the last seven sessions due to loss of voice and flu. The 57-year-old star apologized for disappointing fans, and revealed that he spent New Year’s Day at the hospital for treatment.
Yesterday, the concert organizer announced that they have applied to book the Hong Kong Coliseum for several days in December 2019 to supplement for the cancelled concert sessions. However, if the application doesn’t work out, then money for the purchased tickets will be refunded. The organizer will provide an update on January 31.
Suffering a horseback riding accident in Thailand in January 2017, Andy took eight months to recover and his work schedule was noticeably slower in 2018. Many were concerned whether performing in a 20-session concert series would be too much for Andy, whose stamina has not been the same since his accident. The grueling concert schedule finally took a toll on Andy’s health, making him first lose his voice and then come down with the flu.
On his official fan club website, Andy thanked his fans yesterday and gave an update on his health status. He wrote, “I’m truly sorry, and apologize to everyone who was affected [by the cancelled concert sessions]! My physical condition has stabilized and I’m discharged from the hospital this afternoon! I will be healthy soon! Thank you for everything. It’s in my heart! Happy New Year!”
Fans were glad to hear that Andy has recovered and hopes that the application for a supplemental concert in December 2019 would be successful, saying that even if they had to “wait 10,000 years for their idol” they would be willing to do so.
