Jacky Cheung refuses to share stage with Andy Lau
Fans who wish to witness the four Heavenly Kings, Andy Lau, Jacky Cheung, Aaron Kwok and Leon Lai share a stage again will be disappointed, as sources revealed that Andy and Jacky declined to make an appearance together. There was much speculation earlier that they would be reuniting on Shanghai Dragon TV’s New Year countdown show.
It is said that Jacky’s side clearly indicated that the veteran singer is willing to share the stage with Leon and Aaron, but not Andy.
The show’s director confirmed that though there were indeed talks with the legendary icons, the plans fell through as competition to invite the biggest stars was stiff among the various channels and each of the Heavenly King had their own work commitments and wishes.
Furthermore, the production team was not willing to take up the suggestion of combining pre-recorded clips as a solution. Though plans for ‘the Heavenly King reunion’ were aborted, Leon Lai is set to attend the show, together with a star-studded line-up that includes Taiwanese band Mayday, Chinese singer Na Ying, South Korean actor Lee Jun Ki and more.
