Fans thronged at the gorgeous venue.

F4 held their first free outdoor concert at Danshui Fishermen's Wharf last night. It was also Zaizai's first time to appear in public after his broke-up. F4 only sang 8 songs but spent $5.1 millions in that 45-minute short show. They attracted almost 20,000 attendances for which, 10,000 were overseas fans. Based on an average $20,000 spending for a 2-days-3-nights tour, they helped Taiwan Tourism to gain another $2 billions! Since it was overcrowded, a Japanese fan fell on jostle and was send to the hospital by ambulance just before the show began.

Ardently promote Tourism

Last night, F4 organized a free outdoor concert of their new album "Waiting for You" on a full scale. In addition to a U-shape extended stage, it also designed with 10 types meteor rain like firework effects. The four united to present 4 group songs and took turn for individual solos.

Zaizai, who recently broke-up with his girlfriend, made prior arrangements to refuse interviews. Yet, he appeared "unusually happy" on stage last night. He greeted fans in Japanese and teased to call himself "She Chang" (Principal) at the beginning of the show. Vanness Wu also greeted fans in Korean, followed with Jerry's greetings in Cantonese. In turn, Ken Chu expressed in English. Ken appeared fine on stage like a "dragon" but limped coming off stage because he accidentally injured while practicing his daily routines.

Yan Cheng Xu ran off-key

When Zaizai sang "Can nian" (Should not), one of the lyrics said, "I thought the happy ending is coming close but it vanished in a flash leaving me a regret." The words seems expressed his feelings for this recent half-month. Jerry Yan showed up wearing a knitted hat embroidered with a "J" at the opening of show. He was criticized as being "schematic" because that was not part of Sony's arrangement. Jerry’s manager Cheng Mao Liang clarified, "The knitted hat was a present from a Mama came from Hokkaido. Her daughter was unable to come because of illness. She hope Jerry can wear it as a blessings on stage." Jerry insisted to put it on regardless how much they spent on his expensive hairstyle. Despites, he kept running off-key on last night's performance. The record company explained that it was their first time holding outdoor concert in such an open area.

F4 will have a Stamping Event at the Red House this afternoon at 3pm. Zaizai promised won't escape from questions again and will clarify with the media.
