When you’ve known someone for 20 years, it’s hard to keep things interesting – or so you think.
Not for the four dudes of Hong Kong superband Big Four.
The quartet – made up of veteran artistes Andy Hui, William So, Dicky Cheung and Edmond Leung – still bicker over petty things the way schoolboys do.
Speaking to reporters at a press conference last Saturday, Dicky revealed that he had once gotten upset with Andy for being too competitive during a game of pool.
The two were so focused on the game that they barely spoke five sentences to each other throughout the three hours.
The 45-year-old, who felt bothered by the incident after returning home, resorted to sending an email to Andy in the middle of the night, chiding him for being too serious.
“I was actually angry because I lost the (pool) game,” Dicky cheekily added.
The youngest member, 38-year-old Edmond Leung was quick to expose the band’s secrets.
“During our concert in August, William borrowed my shaver and so did Dicky. I didn’t mind it, only to find out later than Dicky had used it to shave his bald head!”
But when it comes to work, the foursome said that they talk it over like big boys.
“Our friendship was built over 20 years. There are no secrets among us. When we meet with problems at work, we’ll sit down for a meeting to discuss the best solution. Because of our friendship and faith, we are able to solve problems,” William explained.
And when it comes to relationship issues, the four respects each other’s privacy.
“We will not probe each other with questions about relationships. If the other party doesn’t want to talk about it, we will not take the initiative to ask. We will only initiate our concern when we feel that the situation calls for it,” said Dicky.
William agreed, sharing that “as relationship issues are private matters, it’s best to leave it up to the individual to ponder over it.”
Formed only a year ago, the dudes of Big Four got to know each other during their time in showbiz, and are already enjoying high success as a band.
The guy performed to many well-received concerts at the Hong Kong Coliseum and has since started a world tour.
Having previously performed at gigs in Macau and Malaysia, they will make a stop in Singapore on Oct 9.
When asked about what to expect at their Singapore concert, the band joked that they would be very impromptu and asked fans to “expect to see unexpected things.”
The Big Four World Tour will be held on October 9 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium. Tickets are available at all SISTIC outlets.
