It had been 2 years since he last came to Beijing to stage a concert, he shouted: “Friends of Beijing, I’m back. There are many changes since I last came here, I changed my identity.” Andy made an entrance dressed in a red European prince charming.
To accommodate the Beijing fans’ enthusiasm, Andy changed the main color of his costume from white to red, he also made changes to the lighting and water scenes.

Because I have all of you.” The audience reacted with loud applause, some fans shouted: “I love you,” which touched him.
Andy worked hard to perform his dances and songs, he then quipped to the fans: “Think about it, such dances are not dance by people of my age, you think about it, if there is one day I have a belly and dance, is it watchable?” The fans then expressed that they will support him forever.
Another highlight of the concert is the musical segment where Andy and the female lead was prison up by baddies which the audience was engrossed watching nervously.
Whenever Andy held a concert in China, it will resulted in traffic congestion, ticket touts and illegal hawkers can be found, 2 kilometers within the concert venue suffered traffic jams, there were hundreds of hawkers selling light sticks. Inside the venue during the concert, Andy said that this is the most number of light sticks he saw when compared to his past concerts.
As there is a giant poster of this concert at the stadium, everybody would like to take a photograph with the poster, some even use different angle trick to take a photograph as if they were holding hands with Andy, thus resulted in a long queue which delayed the concert from starting by 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, it was reported by Hong Kong magazine Sudden Weekly that Andy brought his wife to see Chinese physician Ma Ching Ki 6 months ago, after 2 months of toning, Carol was successfully pregnant with 15 weeks to date. As 47 years old Carol had a premature birth for her first baby and the baby being too light, this time round for the safety of mother and baby, Andy continue to seek help from physician Ma. Physician Ma who is 90 years old, been in the trade for 40 years, she master acupuncture therapy from a nun when she’s young, pursued medical training from 4 great doctors in China, before getting a Doctor of Medical Science in U.S.A. Andy was recommended by friends to look for her. As Andy had kept secret his love relationship for 24 years, marriage for 14 months, denying his wife’s first pregnancy, thus he denied this second pregnancy allegation.
It is said that when Andy first brought Carol to see physician Ma, she told them: “Not that it will be successful, but must relax and let nature take its own course, the chances will be higher.” Carol followed her instructions to have massages on several points, with Chinese medication, she successfully got pregnant within 2 months. In August 2013, Carol was photographed seeing a Chinese physician in Causeway Bay. Physician Ma is well known in Hong Kong showbiz as her patients includes Tony Leung Chiu Wai, Carina Lau, Chow Yun Fat and Jackey Cheung, normally successfully pregnant will stop consulting her, but as Andy’s daughter only weight 2450 grams, in addition to Carol’s age and weak health, he’s worried that the baby’s weight will not be enough, thus till now still continue consulting and requesting mediation. During Andy’s birthday in September, he was given a peaceful amulet to bless Carol and baby safety.
When the magazine approached physician Ma, the reporter did not reveal his identity and physician Ma admit that Carol visited her, she said: “Small issue, artist is also a human.” After revealing being a reporter and continue questioning, Ma answered to the point, when asked: “Heard that Andy Lau’s wife also visited you?” She said: “A lot of artists wife visited me.” When asked: “How many visit then it became successful?” She answered: “Very hard to calculate for you, everyone is different.”
When Andy was interviewed at the airport on 27 September, when asked if he’s going to be a father again, he replied: “I told you before that I’m not, sorry.” When talked about visiting physician Ma, he immediately kept his mouth shut: “I’m not talking about this, sorry.”
When rectified the matter with Andy’s management company, the reply was: “Thanks for your concern, really there’s no such thing.”
