After less than two years as a singer, TVB star Raymond Lam defied expectations and headed to the Hong Kong Coliseum for two sold-out concerts on June 17 and 18, 2009. Despite juggling a tough acting schedule on top of concert preparations, Raymond put on an amazing show full of great songs and pleasant surprises. The popular star performed many of his recent hits like "Fond of Searching For You in Memories", "Love Has No Guilt", and "Another Way to Love You", as well as his first song, the fan-favorite Eternal Happiness theme "Remember to Forget". He also showed his musical range by covering a wide variety of songs including the Leslie Cheung classic "For Your Heart Only" and Mando-pop hits like Jay Chou's Huo Yuan Chia, Leehom Wang's "You're Not Here", Khalil Fong's "Love Love Love", and Faye Wong's "I Do".
Raymond invited many friends to be guests for his first concerts. He sang duets with diva labelmates Vincy Chan and Charlene Choi, but the greatest applause were reserved for his collaborations with TVB buddies Wong Cho Lam and Michael Tse. Wong Cho Lam put both his comedic and singing talents to work dueting with Raymond on "Faraway". Meanwhile, Raymond and Michael's cover of Twins' "Girls' School, Male Student" brought the entire arena to giggles, but all joking was put aside for the dance battles and hot dance medley. Bringing the night to its climax, Raymond, as promised, got soaking wet performing the concert's theme song Let's Get Wet with bikini-clad dancers under a waterfall.
