Late legends stuff of pop dreams

Late legends stuff of pop dreams

The extraordinary stories of legends Bruce Lee Siu-loong, Anita Mui Yim-fong, Leslie Cheung Kwok-wing and Danny Chan Pak-keung will be told in a new form of music and dance along the Avenue of Stars in Tsim Sha Tsui next month.
Avenue of Stars Management said it will host the first breaking parade and a celebrity exhibition entitled "The Avenue of Pop Dreams" on April 23.

This year marks the 50th, 30th and 20th death anniversaries of the superstars, with Anita Mui and Leslie Cheung having passed away in 2003.

The free event is also supported by the four legends' fan clubs, aiming to promote Hong Kong's pop culture and attract tourists to the city, alongside paying tribute to the stars.

Famous indie musician Chan Kwong-yan, better known as MC Yan, and his team have been invited to rearrange some music pieces from the four stars.

To give people a taste of breaking - a style of dance - that debuts in the 2024 Paris Olympics, elements of breaking and street dance will be performed by five members of the Hong Kong Breaking team - B-boy C Plus, B-boy SoSze, B-boy Four, B-boy SoulGreen and B-girl Ifree.

The performance will also be the members' debut at the Avenue of Stars and they will host fan club members, locals and tourists along a one-of-a-kind parade.

The parade will begin at 2 pm at the statue of Bruce Lee, before passing through the statue of Anita Mui and ending at the statue of Hong Kong Film Awards at 2.30pm.

During the parade, the avenue will be divided into four zones decorated with exhibition display boards, memorable quotes and lyrics from the four legends. The performers will pay tribute to the individual stars as they dance past different zones.

An "Outdoor Music x Film Marathon" will be held at the Cultural Centre piazza after the parade, which is also a part of the Hong Kong Pop Culture Festival 2023 organized by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department.

Additionally, a two-week exhibition will be held down the Avenue of Stars between April 23 to May 7 to display the four legends' iconic outfits and recount the stories of their rise to superstardom.

Visitors can scan different QR codes placed around the exhibition to review the stars' selected masterpieces.

"The four legends have left an enduring mark in music, film and the local pop culture, effectively earning Hong Kong the international status as the 'Oriental Hollywood'," said an Avenue of Stars Management spokesman.

The organizer hoped to bring the stars' stories and music back to life in a new format, so locals and tourists can discover stories about these legends, as well as showcase Hong Kong's unique pop culture and charm.
