In our most recent survey, “Been to a Live Faye Concert?,” participant #10 (update Dec 8: #10 is Deb!) provided the following responses (see below) to questions 3 and 4. In the 12-second video clip, extracted from the “Opening” of the Faye HK Scenic Tour 98-99 video, we see her giving a teddy bear to Faye Wong (王菲)! The guard is on the left in the photo — too late to stop her. What a moment! Captured forever, with Faye, in what has to be one of Faye’s greatest concert videos, held on New Year’s Eve/New Year’s Day 1998-99.
3. Please list the concerts you attended, with the locations and dates if you remember them.
*10: Hong Kong 1998/1999 Concert Series – 30th & 31st Dec (I am featured on the VCD/DVD intro since it was filmed on NYE! you see me handing a teddy bear to Faye) Sydney 2000 – it was some time in Sept during my uni “study” break… needless to say, there was not much studying. I’m from Perth so I secretly flew over to Sydney and went to the concert with a friend.
4. Which Faye concert was your favorite? Why?
*10: I suppose it has to be the 31st Dec 1998 concert in HK. I saw the 30th Dec concert with my mum, in the 5th row, but it really wasn’t that much fun being with mum who’s not a fan. But on the 31st, I went with another fayenatic and we went nuts. We knew what the concert format was and knew when Faye would walk around the edge of the stage, so we took a punt at racing down there to shake her hand, it wasn’t the “official” shaking hands time of the concert because it was right at the start of the night, so we completely surprised the security guard and he couldn’t stop us! It was freaking awesome, a dream come true!! You’ll see me in the intro segment of the VCD/DVD, and you might get a glimpse of my friend and I giving Faye the teddy bear and kookaburra (the aussie laughing bird).
