Mayday: This band can sell out 10 shows in one city
(CNN)Few rock bands can sell out 10 shows, in one month, in the same city.
But for Mandarin-language rock band Mayday, it’s typical. The Taiwanese five-piece — dubbed the “Asian Beatles” by the music press — packed the Hong Kong Coliseum with 10,000 screaming fans for their near consecutive ten night run.
“We’ve known them half our lives,” said Crystal Wu, 26, who traveled with three friends from mainland China for the show, to see the band for the sixth time, after previously catching them at sold out London and Los Angeles shows. “We relate to their spirit,” she added.
