Unlike any other local concerts, he didn’t need to change his costumes constantly, he didn’t need to cover himself up in jewelry, it’s just his presence and his silky smooth voice, which was already enough to take the crowd to the highest.

Making his debut concert in Hong Kong, Craig David did a magnificent job. Though the show was late for more than an hour, and the number of people attending was surprisingly insufficient, these factors actually brought the audience to an even more intimate state. Opening the show with the 5 minutes ‘Slicker Than Your Average’, letting the audience recognize that, yes, he can really sing live! The first wake up call would be his number one song in Hong Kong, ‘7 Days’, while you can picture every single person, from 7-year-olds to elderly, all singing along. A pleasant remix would be the rap of ‘Time To Party’, while Craig brought in the ‘it’s your birthday’ line to get the 50 cent’s ‘In Da Club’ in the background, mixing it with his own original rap.

Then, it’s time for a ballad. ‘You Don’t Miss The Water (Till The Well Runs Dry)’ touched the fans so much, and don’t be shocked to see people standing on their chairs with their lighters on, swinging.

The high point of the gig would have to be his UK number one single ‘Fill Me In’, not just taking the crowd to top, but Craig made use of such a familiar tune to thank his band and background vocals. What’s next? You guessed it… Encore! His acoustic guitarist came out with him, did an acoustic version of ‘Rendezvous’, and stopped the song in the middle of it, saying ‘Show me what you can do with that guitar’, breaking it into the fastest rap ever!! The true ending was definitely the best part of all, ‘Re-rewind’. It’s the perfect light effects to make it real for the audience to sing along, helping Craig out on the ‘Selector’ line.

Throughout the whole show, Craig David hit every single note so accurately that’s like, how we call it, ‘CD-Quality’; on the other hand, he could motivate the fans to dance to his music all night, interacting with the crowd. And I must say, if you think adding the two words ‘Hong Kong’ into his lyrics may be cheesy, it worked!
For those people who didn’t turn up, sorry, you missed a great performance, and to be honest, how can you fill up every single seat at the venue when people elbowed down to get a better view?
