Over 500 participate at "The Avenue of Pop Dreams" parade as tribute to 4 late superstars

The Breaking parade and celebrity exhibition "The Avenue of Pop Dreams" attracted over 500 participants to the Avenue of Stars on Sunday to promote Hong Kong pop culture and to pay tribute to four late superstars – Bruce Lee, Anita Mui, Leslie Cheung and Danny Chan.
"The Avenue of Pop Dreams" is one of the events of the Hong Kong Pop Culture Festival 2023. It also attracted the public, including tourists, while many even joined in on the parade.

The parade started next to the Statue of Bruce Lee at The Avenue of Stars, passed by the Statue of Anita Mui and ended at the Statue of Hong Kong Film Awards. Exhibition displays featuring the four superstars were set up in different zones, with their most memorable quotes and lyrics printed on the ground as street art.

Their masterpieces were also featured at the parade with newly arranged music and breaking choreography.

Reinterpreted versions of their top hits included the film scores of Bruce Lee's "The Big Boss" and "The Way of The Dragon", Anita Mui's famous hits "Rouge" and "In the Heat of the Night", Leslie Cheung's film score of "Days of Being Wild" and claim to fame "Monica", as well as Danny Chan's massive hits "Dating with Danny" and "Cheers", all of which were injected with new Breaking and street dance elements, turning into the audio guide of the parade.

Members of the participating fan clubs also dressed up in the classic styles of the late superstars.

James Tung, Senior Director of Avenue of Stars Management Limited, said, "Commemorating the 50th, 30th, and 20th anniversaries of the deaths of Bruce Lee, Danny Chan, Leslie Cheung, and Anita Mui, respectively, the parade injected new elements such as Breaking and street dance to reinterpret the classics of our superstars."

"We also invited many youngsters to the parade and we hope to inspire them to go after their dreams and create their own legends, just like the four superstars," Tung added.

Starting on Sunday, The Avenue of Stars will also hold a superstar exhibition, showcasing the classic styles of the four legends and telling their extraordinary stories of stardom. Along the way, citizens and tourists can scan different QR codes to relive their classic works in music and film.

The exhibition lasts for two weeks until May 7.
