Over The Limit – Leopard and man in one

Written by Yuci Tai

Last weekend, I witnessed famed Taiwanese performer Show Lo’s The Limits of Dance concert at the Venetian’s Cotai Arena. Show Lo is dubbed “Asia’s Dance King” and was dance director of his own show for the first time ever. With the evening’s highlights said to include singing and dancing to high-energy dance tracks; various styles of dance moves including African, breaking and jazz; and an entourage of over 100 dancers joining Lo for several songs, it was enough to lure me in as part of the audience.

Macau is the final stop on the Chinese leg of Show Lo’s Over the Limit World Live Tour and he attracted a full house of screaming fans. He has always liked leopard pattern apparel and put on a striking dance show dressed in leopard print. He certainly demonstrated he has not been dubbed “Asia’s Dance King” for nothing, as he lived up to his adopted name and showed the audience what dance was all about. He treated his enthusiastic audience to energetic renditions of “A Specialist in Love”, “Over the Limit” and “Whole City in Love”.

He was a singer good at engaging with the atmosphere. The concert didn’t feature any guest performers, but he acted out the voices of Andy Lau, Aaron Kwok, Jolin Tsai and a few other singers and no matter their voice, demeanor or laughter he was absolutely lifelike. When he was singing some love songs, he took the phones of audience members and used them to take photos with his fans. “I dedicated my lifetime to the stage, I like to make the audiences feel happy because I want more interaction with the audience!” he said.

What impressed me most is that he used a rap style to thank all the people and companies he needed to thank, so the most boring part of the concert became part of the entertainment. In addition, it also reminded his fans he will launch his new album very soon, with half of the songs on the album written by himself.
