I was of two minds if I should go catch Show Luo’s Over The Limit 2013 World Live Tour in March, and was glad I did. The night was fraught with technical glitches due to a faulty sound system, but Xiao Zhu (as he is affectionately called by his fans) managed to overcome the embarrassing situation with witty banter and self-deprecating humour. And the audience lapped it all up. If he ever decides to call it quits in showbiz, I know he certainly has a talent at crisis management!
As for me – the technical glitch was a blessing in disguise – I was finally convinced that the dude CAN sing as well as he dances :D It also gave more time for him to interact with the audience; he was ever friendly, humorous, and down-to-earth…just the way I remembered first seeing him on TV and getting addicted to his show.
Belting out his popular duet with Xiao S “恋爱达人” – alone.
To buy time, the performer even broke out in a Hokkien song 爱拼才会赢 – to the delight of the audience. Shortly after, the sound system came back on to his great relief. I wondered what he was going to do next if the technical glitch carried on…I would welcome a burlesque show! LOL
