Chinese fans snap up counterfeit tickets to Andy Lau's concert

10 October 2013 / 3 years 2 weeks ago

Andy Lau's ALways Concert China Tour 2013 was held in Nanjing a few days ago, during which he belted out many of his classic songs.

According to TVB Newsworld, Apple Daily News, Skypost, and World Journal, Andy sang for 3 hours, till he was drenched in sweat and his voice became hoarse.

During the concert, Andy surprised fans by showing off his abs, having body contact with female dancers, and being hoisted up on a mini stage so he could be closer to fans seated at the back of the venue.

Before the concert, a fan asked Andy on Weibo if he could wish his wife a happy birthday. Andy filfilled this request, and even got the audience to sing a birthday song together. 

The one setback of the otherwise successful concert was the problem of counterfeit tickets.

Crew members discovered that many fans had bought counterfeit tickets, many of which were priced at RMB$580 ($118).

Those who were unable to enter the venue made police reports in the hopes that the culprits would be caught.

Hundreds of fans who bought counterfeit tickets claimed the fake tickets looked genuine as the bar code on the tickets could be scanned.
