Hot on the heels of the announcement that Ed Sheeran is finally returning to Hong Kong for two shows at Hong Kong Disneyland, there are two other surprising gigs to suddenly look forward to as well: English R&B singer Craig David and singer-songwriter John Mayer.
Both in their prime in the 2000s, Craig David made something of a comeback last year with his hit album The Time is Now, which featured radio-friendly tunes like Heartlines and I Know You featuring Bastille. The Brit singer is making his debut Hong Kong appearance at Play on February 21, bringing his TS5 show to our shores, which sees him showcase everything from his old school anthems, like 7 Days and Fill Me Up, to garage and house tunes. He’ll be singing, MC-ing, DJ-ing and working the crowd all through the night. Tickets are available now via TicketFlap for $390-$590.
Like David, John Mayer had a string of hits in the 2000s, and picked up multiple Grammy Awards along the way. His most recent album The Search for Everything received great reviews but failed to make a huge impact, so if you love his soulful classics like Your Body is a Wonderland and Gravity, here’s the perfect excuse for you to brush up on his more recent work and to see the guitarist live at the Hong Kong Convention Centre on April 8. You can start booking your tickets on at 10am on January 22 over at hkticketing.com.
