Chew's Captivating Connections With Crooning Celebrities!!! By HH Chew

  UP TO 400 VIEWS!  

HH Chew with the Julie Andrews star 
at Hollywood Boulevard not too long ago.

He was in Palm Springs, California 
and rubbed shoulders with the stars.

Driving through the desert from Los Angeles to Las Vegas 
in Summer 2023, Mr. Chew had a break and visited 
Peggy Sue's Diner in California.

Entrance to Peggy Sue's...

Where he met Elvis.

A little dangerous but made for a lovely pose indeed!

Still at the Diners' with Peggy Sue.

Not only Elvis, HH Chew visited Frank Sinatra's 
home too. Now that's paying homage!

The number of shows he attended was incredible. 
Let him tell you the story...

He holds the record, I think, unless
another reader writes in with more...😄

Thanks again HH for your Hollywood travel tales
and your numerous concert attendance!

Hello again, Andy. 

Yes, I have attended a fair number of  concerts. To name some viz. Cliff Richard, Tom Jones, Olivia Newton-John, Engelbert Humperdinck, Michael Jackson, Bee Gees, Pat Boone, Skeeter Davis, Johnny Tillotson, Brian Hyland, Blue Diamonds, Johnny Lion, 

Kenny Roger, Paul Simon & Art Garfunkel, Beach Boys, Madonna, Celine Dion, Tony Orlando, Julie Rogers, Herman’s Hermit, Freddie and the Dreamers, Julie Rogers, Paul Anka, Leo Sayer, Brotherhood of Man, Andy William, Ray Charles, The Supremes, The Osmonds, Eric Clapton, Sheena Easton, Manfred Mann, Frances Yip, Jacky Cheung etc. 

I may have missed some names. There are some artistes whom I have attended more than once eg Tom Jones, Olivia Newton John, Engelbert Humperdinck, Skeeter Davis, Pat Boone and Cliff Richard probably about 5 times.

Some of the artistes those days were performing exclusively at Shangri-La’s Tiara Lounge, if you may recall. The Supremes, Ray Charles, Andy William performed in one of their function rooms. Some performed at The Neptune and Mandarin’s Kasbah and Belvedere.

Most of the shows were seen in Singapore during the 1970's. The charges increased during the 1980's and, with a dinner thrown in, it was *$200 per head at most restaurants.

*Today it's more than $300 for only a back seat in the galleries.
