People on their feet, screaming women ... wait a minute, the Rolling Stones aren't even in town yet. No, it was Air Supply, proving that part of Hong Kong still needs nostalgia - especially the romantic kind. Most of that part turned up at the Tamar site last night, filling about 60 per cent of the seats. Canto-pop stars Eason Chan Yick-shun and Ronald Cheng Chung-kei opened the chilly evening with three songs each, hardly enough to warm up either themselves or the audience. Sneeze and you would have missed them. Air Supply's entrance was preceded incongruously by thunder and lightning, courtesy of the sound and light technicians, before Russell Hitchcock and Graham Russell launched into a weak start with Shadow of the Sun. Hitchcock still has one of the most crystal-clear voices in pop. The same cannot be said of Russell, who warbled through the first song as if he had a swollen tongue - although it didn't stop him mouthing cringe-worthy platitudes such as, 'We're here to listen and to fall in love, perhaps with everybody'.' Things improved with old hits such as Here I Am and Even the Nights are Better. Russell and Hitchcock have been around the Hong Kong block a few times, and they know which strings to pull. They went around the venue shaking hands, Canto-pop style, during Lost in Love. They weren't exactly mobbed, but it managed to get the audience on their feet. The lads did try ... and the crowd lapped it up. For that, we critics should give them a break.
