Fugitive Arrested at Jacky Cheung’s Concert: “I Shouldn’t Have Come”
Jacky Cheung (張學友) is a singing legend and manages to still draw huge crowds to his concerts even 30 years after his debut. The 56-year-old’s fan base is enormous, encompassing young and old across the globe. Even a fugitive on the run could not resist attending Jacky’s concert, and was arrested by the police.
On April 7, Jacky’s concert in Nanchang drew a crowd of 50,000 people. Thinking he would not be noticed in the crowd, a 31-year-old fugitive from Zhangshu and his wife drove over one hour to attend the concert. Wanted by the police for a financial crime he had committed, the fugitive was arrested even before Jacky’s concert was over.
The on-site face recognition security systems picked up on the fugitive. When arrested by the police, the fugitive was shocked and could not understand what had happened. Afterward, he said, “If I knew it, I wouldn’t have come here!”
After the news broke, the public reacted with laughter. Some of Jacky’s fans even used his song titles to make fun of the situation: “I have to kiss you goodbye”, “If this is not real love,” and “One thousand sad reasons”. One fan praised, “I must say this man has good taste!”
