FANS of Show Lo are excited that the Taiwanese superstar will hold a concert on July 9 in Taipei Arena, reported China Press.

In the promotional poster, Lo can be seen resurfacing from water, a depiction that can be widely interpreted as starting afresh following his cheating scandal two years ago.

On the concert name, Lo said it would just be “2022 Show Lo Concert”, adding that he has been involved in all the preparation work so far.

“What I want to achieve now is to present my best performance on stage that day,” he said.

On his return to Taipei Arena after a six-year hiatus, Lo said: “I am looking forward to it, and excited! But at the same time, I am a bit worried about the Covid-19 pandemic.”

Lo assured his fans that all the disease precautionary measures would be in place.

“I hope everyone can have fun during the concert.

“Hopefully, by listening to my songs, it will be a reminiscence of the youthful days that one used to have,” he said.

Lo reportedly lost more than NT$600mil (RM88mil) in axed endorsement deals after his cheating scandal hit the headlines in 2020.

On April 23, 2020, Lo’s then girlfriend, Internet celebrity Grace Chow, made an explosive social media post accusing Lo of bedding female artistes who were under his wing.

Despite several public apologies and awkward attempts to win Chow back, Lo was shunned and lost many deals and gigs including as the long-time host of the variety show 100% Entertainment.
