Singapore, 12 November 2002 – Customers of StarHub CableTV can get up close and personal with local singing sensation, A-do, in an exclusive concert on 16 Nov 2002.


Besides watching him perform songs from his latest album, they will also get to quiz him on his love life, his latest album and more in a web chat on the same day. By logging on to between 1 pm and 2 pm, they will get to ask A-do any burning questions and get an instant reply from the singer.


"The face of traditional TV broadcast is fast changing. We have always strived to enrich our customers’ TV viewing experience and make that experience larger-than-life," said Iris Wee, StarHub’s Director of Marketing, Consumer Markets.


Fans of the Ekin Cheng-lookalike will get to watch the A-do Showcase on VV Entertainment on StarHub CableTV Ch 56 on 1 Jan 2003. This is the first in a series of regular exclusive showcases named StarHub CableTV LIVE. Each concert, depending on the venue sizes, will be open to 500 to 1,000 customers.


"We had previously co-presented similar concerts in the past such as the Matilda Tao concert at Chinois Chinois in January this year. The response from VV Entertainment viewers has been very encouraging," said Andrea Tay, StarHub’s Senior Manager of Programming.


The A-do Showcase is open to StarHub CableTV customers only and will be held at 5 pm on Saturday at China Black.


"We have 300 pairs of tickets to give away but to date, more than 2,000 entries have been received," added Miss Wee.


Besides getting the chance to meet their favourite singers upclose, fans will also be able to purchase collectibles made for this event such as a special-edition CD-Card featuring past hits as well as songs from his yet-to-be-released album.
