Detours to Paradise, Part II

On Sunday we headed up to Taipei Main Station to perform the second premier show.

Detours to Paradise

Our day began at the Blue Sky restaurant, where we spent a few hours rehearsing some new songs for the show later in the day.

Of course, where was delicious Thai food in attendance!

I should say plenty of delicious Thai food!

After lunch we rehearsed for awhile longer and then packed up for Taipei.

Many people preferred to listen from back near the station.

We had literally hundreds of adoring fans fawning over us.  Actually, the audience is reaching for some coupons for free phone cards that had been thrown from the stage.

The Blue Sky band played 3 songs and then they brought the actors from the movie onstage.

The 2 people in the center are the actors from the movie (and from the previous article).  The gentleman on the right is an Indonesian translator for the female lead actor.

The crowd was largely Indonesian and they went wild over the female lead actor from their home country.

The band went back onstage for the second part of the show.  This is Mr. Oath, singing the famous Taiwanese song “Shao Wei.”  What’s notable is that Mr. Oath is Thai and is singing in Chinese.

He did a fantastic job with the song.

We ended our show with a rousing song and then ran off the stage ASAP.

The line went on for some distance.

In the meantime we went around to the back of the stage to relax.  Several fans wanted to have their photos taken with the band and we were just too happy to do that for them.

    1. Andres, i would agree with you (about the female fans) only if they were screaming and tussling over us! that was all about the free mobile phone and phone cards that they were giving away! several female fans did ask to have photos taken with us after the show though. but there was no screaming, lol.
