Leehom's Free Show from a Weibo

Other artists may have asked their fans to pay for a meet and greet, or for taking picture or shaking hands, but Leehom has spent US$ 17,000 to treat his fans on a brand New Day of 2012.

2 new year's count down live performance at Taichung and Kaoshiung were just not enough. He had this idea to treat his fans. So right after that past-midnight performance, he posted a messange in his chinese facebook, weibo.

‎0101 - 2012/01/01 in addition of Happy New Year, the first day must come in a special way! Finished crossing over a year, I think I'm still not satisfied... just discussed it with band and we decide to have a show on January 1st at 8 PM in Taipei Riverside Gongguan (Roosevelt Rd. 3rd Section Lane 244 No. 2 B1) Managing a '24 hour notice' for a free show, haha! The idea was to give you all a 24 hour immediate notice! It's possible to come earlier to grab a seat! See you tonight!

In less than 24hours, more than 700 fans were rushing to Riverside Live House in Taipei, and 200 of them were lucky to get the free mini concert tickets.

So I was trying to get some possible answers of why he's doing that. Here are what came to my mind
  1. he's over excited that night, a little bit drunk, maybe. Wonder when he woke up on that day, late in the afternoon I bet, he'd still remember what he posted. LOL!
  2. he's boring actually.. so when he looked at his schedule he was like: "oh noo.. I dont have anything to do tonight..." or
  3. he's really a super hyper person. He's probably consuming Korean ginseng everyday and needed a place to throw that energy out. Haha! 
  4. he's testing the power of his weibo. I heard that he's among the rare public figures that has the most followers.16.655.657 people are following him (as of today)
  5. he loves performing, he just couldn't get enough of it, which makes me somehow feel glad.. I will be able to see him performed for a more more time to come.
  6. well, US$ 17,000 was probably small money for him. From what I know he got at least US$200K from 1x performance only. Recently he's no 16 at China Celebrity 100 list published by Forbes in term of activities, earnings and exposure.
  7. .... i want to write that he truly loves his fans.. but that will be so lame, i guess :p
  8. so maybe just for no reason at all. It's just perfect. It's new year, it's nice to give something back for people who had supported him all throught 2011
Whatever the reason was, using Social Media to promote something is I think was a brilliant idea! and that 45min planned performance turned out to be 2 hours show. Lucky fans. Way to go Leehom!

Still in Love with you, officially uploaded by Leehom at his youtube
