The “dancing soul” returned to Singapore to stage a self-proclaimed “even better” encore edition of his ‘Over The Limit’ world tour, at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, last night. To keep things fresh, Show Lo changed up to 90 percent of the choreography and inserted a few new concert highlights to give fans a bang for their buck.
As an “encore” performance of a previously-staged concert, last night’s two-hour gig was comparatively shorter, with a trimmed down set list consisting of 20 to 22 songs. Despite the shortened duration, the concert was jammed packed with the very best of what the Taiwanese artiste had to offer his fans, from his best hits and endless dance action on the stage to the quick-witted host’s non-stop bantering with his fans and his mum (more on that later).
Flanked by a total of 16 dancers (yes, we counted!), Show danced from the opening note to his closing song. He was often spotted sweating buckets on stage due to the sometimes fast-paced routines and possibly, a lack of stamina after two months of non-stop filming in China for an upcoming idol drama. For that the entertainer even joked about feeling “very nervous” at the start of his concert because he has “forgotten it all” since his last performance in January, at Kaohsiung, Taiwan.
Of a same-same-but-different setup, the most noticeable thing missing from this encore concert was the no-show of his six-pack abs, which made a special appearance during his previous concert in Singapore after an audio glitch. Over a phone interview with xinmsn in April, the 34-year-old admitted that he had no time to go on a diet or train up his body due to filming, and thus, would not be showing off his famed chocolate abs this time around.
Well, not that anyone from the 7,500-strong crowd minded the lack of abs as Show kept the crowd entertained and the concert going with punchy jokes and a tight routine.
