Kitsch icon David Hasselhoff has yet to confirm whether he will grace the stage of Hong Kong Rugby Sevens in April despite exclusive tickets placing the TV star at the event being advertised to Rugby Union members online. Invitations to a select crowd billing the Baywatch star alongside Scottish folk-rock duo The Proclaimers and an ABBA tribute band, were sent the few hundred friends of the Union with “the good intention of keeping it private,” according to a source involved in organising the event. The invitation included a link to a webpage on ticketing website Ticketflap advertising Hasselhoff’s performance at the kick off ceremony on April 9th at Hong Kong Stadium, ahead of the star’s team confirming the concert. Organisers assume that one of the recipients of the exclusive invitation were leaked to an online news outlet, which announced Hasselhoff’s billing on Friday night, before reaching out to the Rugby Union to confirm. “We’re waiting to hear back from Hasselhoff’s team this weekend and had been planning to make the official announcement on Monday,” said a source involved in organising the event. “The invitations we sent out were supposed to be private, but we can’t stop people doing what they do,” they added. Hasselhoff rose to fame as a red swimming trunk sporting lifeguard in the '90s show which featured endless slow mo shots of the star leaping majestically through sand. He has since shown prowess in arenas beyond the beach, as a hit singer and business man. The Rugby Union confirmed that The Proclaimers of “500 Miles” hit song fame will play at the kick off ceremony, regardless of who is fronting the bill. An ABBA tribute band completes the bill, who, one imagines, might want to thank Hasselhoff for his music, alongside his many other skills.
