Veteran Taiwanese singer Tsai Chin, whose captivating voice can be heard when Tony Leung Chiu-wai and Andy Lau Tak-wah meet in a music store in the blockbuster Infernal Affairs, is planning her first Hong Kong concert in five years. 'Hong Kong is very special to me,' says Tsai (left) who is renowned for her faithful interpretations of classics from pre-second world war Shanghai. 'It was a promoter in Hong Kong who invited me to stage my first paid-for concerts here back in the 90s. I really miss the audience in Hong Kong.' The shows at Hong Kong Coliseum on January 23 and 24 will feature Chinese favourites spanning the 1930s to the 80s with pieces made famous by Shanghai singers such as Chow Hsuan, Bai Kwong and Li Xianglan. Hits from Hong Kong movies of the 60s and others by Taiwanese singers such as Teresa Tang will also be performed. 'I hope to pay a special tribute to Teresa in the concerts - you'll find out what it is if you come to the show,' says Tsai, who has 42 albums under her belt and has just signed a recording contract with Universal which also plans a DVD release next year. 'I'm think I'm good at singing all these oldies. I really appreciate all the Chinese singers from the 30s, they are a big influence on me. I have a responsibility to present their songs to the next generation.'
