Tomos Griffiths is taking a well-earned break from transforming Macau's entertainment industry to perform at Hong Kong Stadium this weekend.

'I'm working on building the next entertainment capital of the world in Macau, but the Sevens is definitely the entertainment capital of rugby,' said the Australian, who is creative director of entertainment at the Venetian.

'The 11-minute show is a medley, with something for everyone. It's designed to get the crowd pumped up for the final. It will be huge and I'm honoured to make a special guest appearance at the Sevens.'

Griffiths has lived in the region since 2001 and appeared in Phantom of the Opera in London.

Despite being a proud Sydneysider, his name gives a strong hint about his heritage - Welsh.

'My great, great, great grandfather was a rugby-playing butcher from Cardiff,' Griffiths said. 'So I will be cheering for Australia and Wales.'
