The show is part of the duo’s ‘Impulse’ world tour, and will be held on August 24 at the Arena of Stars, Resorts World Genting.
The tour is a celebration of 36 years of Beyond’s music, with Yip and Paul combining to sing classic Beyond songs like Big Land, Boundless Oceans Vast Skies and Glorious Years, and many others.

Formed in 1983, Beyond was one of the most popular rock bands in Asia during the 1980s and 1990s before the tragic death of frontman Wong Ka Kui in 1993 after a accident while filming a skit for a Japanese comedy show.

Ka Kui had co-founded Beyond with drummer Yip Sai Wing in 1983 before they were joined by younger brother Wong Ka Keung on bass and Paul on guitar.
