As reported previously, Show Luo was last year’s champion in album sales, selling 150 thousand copies. With his untouched popularity, he has already completed nine mini-concert and signing events for his latest album, “Good Show”, autographing 118,600 copies. Although the album has only been released for a month, 135,800 copies have been sold. He will also be releasing a 4th repackaged album to “thank the fans.” However, anti-fans immediately criticized the singer’s sales tactic in addition to his tradition of giving fans a photo op for buying 3 albums, or a hug for 5. Show’s manager expressed, “It is to thank the fans’ support. The new repackaged album will have a DVD containing the complete series of his mini-film, as well as a free ticket to his new album’s concert.”
Even though the music industry has been on a decline, Show has successfully attracted his fans in buying hard copies by holding mini-concert and signing events, giving away free gifts, mini-film, and other things. Although these are the same tactics used by other record companies, Show has received the most criticisms by anti-fans.
Nonetheless, his mini-concert and signing events have been the highlight since his fans get to see him in person. On average, he spends 6 hours to finish signing all the albums at each event. At the Taipei signing, close to 10 thousand fans lined-up, thus, it took him 15 hours to finish signing all the albums!
It has been 3 years since he has held a new album concert. With much anticipation, he is determined to put on a good show, so he is spending 8 million TWD to hold the “Count On Me Celebration Concert” on the 12th.
Show's commemorate edition of "Good Show" is now available for preorder at YesAsia!
