Singer Wang Leehom will be holding a concert in January in Las Vegas, his first since he became embroiled in a messy divorce scandal in December 2021. The Taiwan-based American singer’s comeback show was announced by concert organiser Kwan’s International on Tuesday (Dec 6).
In the short video clip on social media promoting the event, Wang could be heard saying in Mandarin: “Even if there is only one person listening, I still want to sing for you.”
While an earlier post from Kwan’s International only stated that the concert would be held around the Lunar New Year period, Apple Daily reported that it would take place on Jan 28, 2023, at Resorts World Las Vegas. The venue seats around 5,000 people.
In December 2021, the 46-year-old singer-actor’s ex-wife Li Jinglei revealed in a long letter she posted on Weibo that he had cheated on her numerous times and had hired prostitutes. Wang later admitted in a Facebook post that he “didn’t manage the marriage properly, caused trouble to my family, and didn’t give the public the image that an idol should have”.
Wang, who debuted in 1995, still has a sizeable following on social media despite the controversy, with 67 million followers on Weibo.
