Two years ago at17 won the chance to share the stage with Canto-pop king Eason Chan Yik-shun. Back then, the newcomers were overwhelmed to meet their favourite singer. Next week, the duo - Eman Lam Yee-man and Ellen Joyce Loo - will again perform alongside the Canto- pop king as part of the Now.com's conceptual concerts - but this time they'll be more confident and play a bigger role in proceedings. The shows, to be staged at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre next Thursday and Friday, are produced and performed by Chan. They'll also star Taiwanese singer Mavis Fan Hsiao-shuan, theatre artist and actor Jim Chim Sui-man, actress Josie Ho Chiu-yee, rock duo Soler and rising singing star Wilfred Lau Ho-lung. 'There'll be more interaction between Eason and us this time,' said Loo, who performed with Chan at a gig in Sheung Wan's Western Market two years ago. 'We've shared ideas with him, and told him about what we thought,' the 19-year-old said. 'This time, we've put a lot into the show.' 'We've choreographed a dance with Eason,' said Lam, 22. 'I think it should be a lot of fun.' The conceptual concerts are based on an original story set in the year 4010, when there's only one man (Chan) on Earth. The duo play gods trying to keep Chan alive. The band said they would dress in flamboyant gold costumes, with music specially prepared by Carl Wong Sheung-chun and Pixel Toy's Ho Shan. After these concerts, at17 will concentrate on the recording of their yet-to-be-titled new album. The duo said production had already reached the last phase, and the album was tentatively scheduled for release next month. 'We've finished recording a few songs. We're really excited about this album,' said Loo (far right, with Lam). 'We've discovered so much more about ourselves and our abilities.'
