The Perth Tour Music Special 1993 stars Faye Wong (王菲) and Tony Leung Chiu-Wai (梁朝偉). It was uploaded in 6 parts to YouTube by Singsingcookie4 on 21 Feb 2009. This version has the best resolution that I’ve seen. In this special, we see Tony and Faye before they starred together in the Wong Kar-wai (王家衛) classic Chungking Express. This is a romantic comedy that features a few of Faye’s songs. Makes you wish that Faye would do a romantic musical comedy in which she sings some of her songs.
I am so HAPPY that this has been posted because I’m from Perth!! I’ve been here since ‘89, so I’m pretty much from here. I recognise everywhere they show, some of the places don’t even exist anymore. I didn’t really know Faye back in 1993, my first hearing of our 100,000 Whys album was in 1994. But I do remember watching this on VHS back in the day. This was when Faye’s career was taking off and Tony was trying to start a singing career (god knows why?!?!).
This really shows why Faye and Tony have done so much acting together. Tony is an acting veteran and its obvious Faye is very comfortable with Tony and he must have taken good care of her and taught her his craft.
Word of advice – never feed the black swans! They are vicious when it comes to food!! We do have great coffee, we take it very seriously, mainly due to a large italian population, there is NO Starbucks here!
Faye living in a caravan?!?! ahahaha, that’s too funny! Meat pie for brekky? She’s definitely an Aussie!
This makes me feel very close to Faye – she was in my town! If only I met her! Wonder if she liked Perth, it was pretty undeveloped back then, so it wouldn’t have been very exciting at the time. I coulda been a very good tour guide for them even tho I was only 14!
See ya later, mate!
