Band visit a sign of good relationships

ONE of China's largest and most popular heavy metal bands is in the country and has already managed to cause a hype of excitement in Suva.

The group, Tang Dynasty, performed last night for the first time at the Civic Auditorium before a large crowd of Chinese, Fijians and Fijians of Indian descent who all turned up to witness the four-member boy band prove why they are so famous in China.

The group have played all over China, Egypt, Germany, Japan, Malaysia and a number of other countries — now including Fiji, where they are playing for the first time.

"The Tang Dynasty is one of China's most influential bands," remarked Chinese Ambassador Huang Yang, who officially opened last night's event.

Mr Yang said the visiting band was a sign of good relations between Fiji and China, and a way for Fijian people to appreciate Chinese culture a little bit more.
