Andy Lau proves to be one of the only pop stars in the world who TRULY cares about his fans, leaping off the stage (!) to take on some overzealous security thingies. This is amazing stuff. :shock:

Has any singer anywhere ever gone to bat like this? Too bad he wasn't around during Altamont! ;)

Awesome clip :D

I just got some more respect for the guy.
The security guards went way to far if you ask me, the fan had already stepped back so there were no need for that amount of force, they could just have lead him back to the rest of the audience if they wanted.
Is he using playback, or is that just background singers as someone is claiming?

New Order's bass player Peter Hook was somewhat famous for it - seemed like he was rather too keen to kick off with them in fact :wink:
