Leon Lai 4D Concert 1st night cancelled at last minute

Leon Lai's 4D Concert that was supposed to kick off on 28 Apr for 8 nights has been cancelled at the last minute.

Tentages were specially erected for his concert over an open space at the Central HarbourFront bay area. As new materials were used for the setup, the application for a performance permit became more complicated.

By late afternoon, Leon Lai still did not manage to get an approved permit from the Fire Department. Hence, the concert on the 28 Apr was cancelled at the last minute.

Leon Lai speaking over a loudspeaker, apologised and bowed to his fans standing outside.

Some fans took to blaming the government departments for inefficiency, but Leon Lai later clarified in a video that there were problems with his application and he accept full responsibilities for the last minute cancellation.

Ex-girlfriend Shu Qi at an afternoon event in Central says that luckily her own event hasn't been cancelled by the Fire Department; then she quickly adds that she will find a chance to console him and hope for the authorities to understand the difficulties of staging a celebrity event while ex-wife Gaile Lok says it is difficult for her to comment but believes Leon Lai will come up with a solution.

Around 3am in the morning of 29 Apr, Leon Lai was still busy looking at his smartphone and talking to various parties at the concert venue.

At 4:21pm in the afternoon, Leon Lai releases another video saying that he will go head with his performance tonight on 29 Apr. He will do a makeup for those that bought tickets for the first night. He adds that those who want a refund will be offered a refund station to process their requests.
