Anita Mui’s Memorial Concert to be Held on December 30
A grand memorial concert for Anita Mui (梅艷芳) will be held on her 10th death anniversary, December 30, 2013. Her official fan club as well as two good friends, Eric Tsang (曾志偉) and Jacky Cheung (張學友), will plan and organize all aspects. They decided any additional money earned from the concert would directly be given to cancer research charities. In addition, the sales revenue would sponsor the construction of an elementary school to be built in memory of Anita.
At the moment, the concert is scheduled to be held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. However, according to Anita’s past manager, the plan is not yet final, since their spot has not been guaranteed. She revealed they have also booked the Kowloon Bay International Trade and Exhibition Centre, as well as an exhibition centre at the Hong Kong International Airport.
The three ticket prices available for the concert are $980, $680, and $480. Tickets can already be ordered online via Anita’s official fan page on social media sites such as Facebook. All costs must be paid by November 4, since the organizing committee must know how many people are going to attend. Jacky and Eric have invited Anita’s close friends, including Andy Lau (劉德華), Eason Chan (陳奕迅), Miriam Yeung (楊千嬅), William So (蘇永康), and Denise Ho (何韻詩). Andy responded through his assistant that details regarding the memorial concert were not yet revealed but will try his best to attend, although he has his own concert on December 29.
From December 28 to December 30, Anita’s official fan club will also be setting up a museum to display Anita’s past items. The dazzling gold costume she wore years ago to the New Talent Singing Competition is currently under the possession of Denise Ho. The fan club announced they would kindly ask Denise for permission to put it on display.
