Meanwhile, at Shuffle Bar, a supposed “stolen” mobile phone led the lead singer of the Cuban band to shout a few obscenities from the stage and storm off. Also, a bachelorette party showed up totally expecting “Shanghai Latin Power” to be a different kind of show.
Admittedly, still recovering from Sunday’s match (we should note that no one at Shanghaiist is actually Italian — we just were for the night) we’re more than keen on this Friday’s happenings in the Shang, as famed visionary Akufen fills up all three levels of Tanghui at a staggering price of 100 RMB, while local fave Cold Fairyland more than justifies the cab ride to YYT with a 30 yuan price tag. To quote Lindy, lead singer/keyboardist/pipa player: “We plan on playing for two hours. This is our first show in three months (in Shanghai).”
And who knows, maybe a local celebrity will get drunk and hop on stage. From the unlinkable South China Morning Post:
An apparently intoxicated Jackie Chan disrupted a concert by Taiwanese singer-songwriter Jonathan Lee in Hong Kong and exchanged insults with the audience, a news report said on Tuesday.
Ming Pao Daily News said Chan suddenly jumped on stage at the concert on Monday night and demanded a duet with Lee. He then tried to conduct the band but stopped and restarted the music several times, Ming Pao said.
As the awkward interruption dragged on, audience members started to heckle Chan and the actor replied with an insult, according to the report.
The newspaper quoted Chan as saying on stage that he was drunk.
Chan was an invited performing guest at Lee’s earlier show on Sunday night.
A spokesman for Chan, Solon So, said he hadn’t seen Chan since the alleged incident and had no immediate comment. He said he didn’t attend the concert.
Concert organisers didn’t immediately return a reporter’s call seeking comment.
