Emerald Queen Casino welcomes the Asian Fest concert back with a splash at the newly renovated Event Center
After a three-year-long break due to COVID, Asia Fest returned to Emerald Queen Casino on Sunday, July 3rd, and filled the Event Center from 8:00 pm to 10:30 pm! EQC and 5M Music presents the Xin cho anh yêu concert series featuring Nguyen Hong Nhung, Ho Le Thu, Manh Quynh, Huong Thuy, Luong Tung Quang, Truc Lam, Truc Linh, and Henry Chuc! Vast music, dancing, and a fun festival.
Henry Chuc performed a range of musical genres. I’ve never heard Asians sing American country music until now. He sings country music quite well. He also sang Chinese songs.
Together, Truc Lam and Truc Linh perform their signature duet, “Xin cho anh yêu,” which is their favorite song.
Vietnamese favorite Bolero music was performed by Manh Quynh and Huong Thuy. They did not sing as a group, but rather as individuals.
Luong Tung Quang began his professional singing career as the lead male singer for a local Vietnamese band called Hy Vong in Perth, Australia in the early 1990s. For almost two decades, his immense popularity has taken him to all four corners of the world performing at sold-out live concert shows, and has turned Luong Tung Quang into one of the most recognizable Vietnamese male singers worldwide.
Ho Le Thu dresses elegantly, almost as if she were a dragon on fire. Thu has received numerous invitations to perform and is truly recognized as a professional singer.
Nguyen Hong Nhung is dressed in a yellow gown with a bold wrap around her chest and a tiara in the back. She takes center stage with her powerful vocals.
My Thoughts: The security was strict as we entered the building to acquire our badge because we were lost, but a friendly security officer helped us and led us to the backstage area.
My first impression is that the newly redesigned stage is fantastic, and the sound system is cutting-edge. The Emerald Queen Event Center is a state-of-the-art indoor event venue with stadium seating for more than 1,800 concertgoers and is located at EQC Tacoma.
All of the singers did an excellent job, and their attire was professional.
My gear: For those who are interested in knowing what I use, I often travel with two cameras: a Canon 80D with a 70-200mm F2.8 lens and a Canon RP with an 18-35mm F1.8 lens.
