Hong Kong, 17 October, 2017 – boutique boulevard returned to LANDMARK with a bang, with an opening gala that offered the best in pop music, gourmet journeys and over 100 in-boutique experiences. Themed “Alice’s World of Pop”, the extravaganza lived up to its reputation of being one of the most prestigious events on the Hong Kong social calendar, with amazing performances from two global pop stars, American singer/songwriter Bebe Rexha and Korean pop legend Rain.
Korean pop sensation Rain took to the stage to open the show and the chart-topping star performed many of his best known hits including “Hip Song” and “LA SONG”.
boutique boulevard’s headline act was the irrepressible Bebe Rexha and the chart-topping star showed why she has sold more than 8 million singles, 2 billion streams and 1.5 billion YouTube views with a barn-storming performance of her recent hits including "Take Me Home", "I Got You", and "The Way I Are”.
