This was one fun month for those following Tears for Fears online as well as for our new friends from Hong Kong (i.e. Po Po and Mr. Wong to name a few). The band was a hit at the Foreign Correspondents’ Club in HK. Thanks to Mr. Wong we were able to get a cool glimpse behind the scenes as well as great photos from the show. The FCC’s charity is one to be proud of as they aim to take good care of students and see them on their way. As tuition prices hike and life becomes increasingly expensive, it’s awesome to see such a prestigious group looking out for others. Read more about their work on our 2015/2016 Givings post.

Looks like their hotel may have been the Park Hyatt (and yes we kept that speculation under wraps until long after they were gone). The view of the harbour was outstanding from Curt’s pictures. The band also spent some time with local kids…so nice to see Lady T, Mr. B,, Charlton, Drummer Genius Jamie, Carina…everyone! How awesome!

What a lovely dinner setting ...

The dinner was first and the concert followed. There was a silent auction featuring many amazing pieces of art. This was certainly a red carpet affair with everyone dressed to the nines. Enjoy this link featuring a full array of pictures from the event including the stunning attire of the guests and the presence of many brands plus sponsors.

Tweets by the FCC were flowing before and after the event. Great way to follow the show for those that couldn't go.

This was the 3rd show that we live tweeted since our inception some years ago. The first one was from Brasil thanks to Marcio, the second was KROQ. Thanks to all who make these events possible and to those who hook us up remotely so fans can be there not just in spirit but online as the concerts take place. While nothing beats Travel Fan life, it’s also nice to know you can get online and follow local concert attendees who Periscope, tweet video and other things for fellow fans if you just *can’t* go. With that said, let’s be respectful of these watermarked (pink winged butterfly) items as well as those noted FCC. If you’re sharing on your wall, note the photographer’s name. They spent their resources to be there and for some of them photography and reporting is their life’s work. Most of their content is protected by law. Be sure to give credit where credit is due.
