Fans who could not get a ticket for Sam Hui Koon-kit's 10 comeback concerts next month should not be disappointed, as the 'God' of Canto-pop is likely to return to the stage again later this year. Hui, who has been off the stage for 12 years will hold concerts on June 5, then every day from June 7 to 15. Vigo Yau Ah-kwai, managing director and concert promoter for Asia Vigour Productions, said they were aiming for a Part II series of concerts in August. Tickets for the June concerts - Part I - went on sale on Monday. All the $400 and $100 tickets sold out yesterday, Mr Yau said and only a few $250 tickets were available. Part II was planned for August, but he said no details had been confirmed. 'To be honest, the [good] response was predictable, because Sam hasn't been on the stage - not even been seen in public - for such a long time. We understand the public's eagerness for Sam's return,' said Mr Yau. On Monday morning, Hui went to the Coliseum and met 300 fans lined up to buy tickets and sang to thank them for their support. Dubbed the 'God' of Canto-pop, Hui was born in 1948 in Guangzhou. He joined the English band Lotus in 1966 and released his first Cantonese song, Tower Amid the Clouds, in 1971. In 1974 he released his first Cantonese album, Games Gamblers Play - the soundtrack of a movie starring Hui and his older brother Michael Hui Koon-man. The title track, Games Gamblers Play, was the first Chinese song aired on the BBC. At that time the Hong Kong pop scene was still dominated by English songs, but Hui's tongue-in-cheek Cantonese lyrics appealed immediately to local working class. Veteran music critic Fung Lai-chi said Hui revolutionised local pop, launching the first chapter of the golden era of Canto-pop. 'Hui was the one who made Canto-pop fashionable. Even well-educated and westernised people began to listen to Cantonese pop because of him. He brought local humour into his lyrics. His songs reflect the reality, the hard life of the working class, and their struggle in society.' Hui retired from the limelight in 1993, after a year-long world tour and acting in the movie, Laughter of Water Margins. He returned to show business in 1999 as the director of the musical A Midsummer Night's Fantasy, starring Ekin Cheng Yi-kin and Gigi Leung Wing-kei.
