綵排辛苦仍照顧阿Lam膳食 葉蒨文敢認「廿四孝老婆」

香港文匯報訊 葉蒨文(Sally)闊別7年再踏舞台,將於9月假紅館舉行一連三場《葉蒨文完全是你演唱會》。Sally暫未知加場與否,但就已計劃稍後到馬來西亞、新加坡及美加等地作巡迴,內地方面則安排於明年進行。
Sally表示未曾跟東亞唱片合作過,既然剛巧對方致電合作,又覺得其公司之前的計劃做得不錯,故決定嘗試合作。Sally說:「其實談開個唱很多年,只是之前一切忙得不可開交,但不管於美國還是香港,有時候去買╴R,大家也會問起我何時再唱歌,讓我感到很熱情,還以為香港的觀眾會忘記我,誰知大家仍是親切地叫我Sally,所以我便想舉行個唱見見舊朋友。」
Sally透露今次個唱的舞台上會有一條行人通道,方便安排握手位,唱慢歌時就可跟歌迷握手多點互動。另已選好所有歌曲,屆時會獻唱多首經典金曲。那麼她可會邀丈夫林子祥(阿Lam)上台任嘉賓?她直言不會刻意這樣做,屆時會視乎觀眾而定,自己較喜歡順其自然。
勤練拉丁舞 扭足4小時

今次演唱會中,Sally會挑戰難度極高的拉丁舞,更早於過多月前已積極上「速成班」,Sally大嘆跳拉丁舞感覺真的很好玩、好看,但又覺得真的很難:「從第一次跳到現在,姿勢還像跳不出來似的,我擔心跳得不夠好。這次個唱有三分一會是跳舞環節,拉丁舞方面音樂拍子很強,只是最大難度是拍子與平常不同,還要很小心怕扭傷腰部。」Sally透露現有時間就會積極練足4個小時,她更開玩笑稱開始跳到連Pat Pat也不知扭到哪兒,擔心會「扭大了」!

著性感舞衣自己話事
Sally又坦言今次舞衣方面會較性感,這次所有服飾會由她挑選,Sally表示:「我平常不太喜歡性感,但於台上就不介意,最重要是感覺漂亮,那在台上表演就沒有尺度,當然也要有衫穿著﹗(要老公先過目允許嗎?)平常可以由他話事,演出的就不能。(會有多性感?)哈,有前有後,就連下也有,不過我不想為性感什麼都露出來。」

不過Sally稱會為展美態而努力減肥,但就沒有節食,會從飲食中找來平衡,因現時要積極綵排,要有力氣才可以跳舞,但就相信演出時幾乎每天都會瘦兩至三磅,總之能瘦到把衫穿得美麗就夠了。至於丈夫可有任何行動上的鼓勵?Sally對此即似有投訴地謂每次阿Lam看到她疲憊地躺在床上,就會慨嘆是否真的這樣辛苦,Sally說:「我有跟他說,誰似他這樣幸運,單是唱歌什麼不用做,觀眾就很喜歡,我真沒這樣好命,那個男人太有福氣!」Sally還自爆現時雖忙於個唱,但都還要擔心丈夫的膳食,對方要什麼告訴她就可以,十足「廿四孝老婆」!

TIRED FROM DOING REHEARSALS FOR CONCERTS, SALLY STILL WORRIES ABOUT LAM GETTING HIS MEALS
Sally who hadn’t had concerts for 7 years finally came back to stage, and will have her 3 nights of “Intimately Yours Sally Yeh 2012 Concert” in this coming September. It’s still unknown if there will be additional nights, but Sally had planned to have shows in Malaysia, Singapore, US and Canada shortly after her HKG Concerts. Concerts in China were planned for next year.
Sally said she’d never worked with East Asia Music before; earlier the company happened to call to express their interest in inviting Sally to work together, and Sally felt the company had good tracking records with their precious engagements, so she decided to sign and give everyone a chance. Sally said, “Actually I’d been thinking about having concerts for years, it’s just that I’d been so busy before, but no matter whether I was in the States or Hong Kong, sometimes even when I was doing shopping, people would ask me when I would sing again, and I could truly feel their enthusiasm. I thought the Audience in Hong Kong wouldn’t even remember me, who could imagine even now people still call me Sally so nicely. So I decided to come back to have a show and see my old friends.”
Sally said this time in her show there would be a pathway on the stage, which is for her to conveniently shake hands with fans when she is singing slow songs. She’d chosen all her songs, and she would be singing many of her own classic, golden songs. Will she invite Lam to come sing as a special guest? She said she wouldn’t make special arrangement for that, it all depends on what the audience wants… she loves to have things unfold in their own ways.

TRAINING HARD FOR LATIN, DANCING FOR 4 HOURS NON-STOP
Sally would take the challenge to dance Latin in her concert this time, and to prepare for this, she started taking “fast-track” dancing classes many months ago. Sally said dancing Latin is so much fun, it’s beautiful, but at the same time, it’s truly difficult. “From the first time I started dancing till now, it still feels like I hadn’t fully grasped it. I do worry I wouldn’t dance well at the show. One third of the entire show would be dancing episodes… As for Latin part, the rhythm of the music would be intense, and the most difficult is the rhythm wouldn’t be the same as usual, and I also need to make sure I wouldn’t hurt my waist.” Sally told us now whenever she has time she would practice for a full 4-hour; she even jokingly said when she just started doing Latin dance she would dance until she wouldn’t even find her Pat Pat… worrying that it would grow bigger from all the movements.

IT’S HER SAY ABOUT IF SHE WILL WEAR SEXY DRESSES
Sally confessed the costumes for the concerts would be of the relatively sexy style, she’d chosen all the dresses by herself. Sally said: “I don’t like to wear sexy clothes in everyday life, but I don’t mind it on stage, the most important is whether it looks good or not, as long as it’s beautiful I’m pretty open to anything, but of course I will put on clothes for sure.” “Will your husband approve or allow it?” “In everyday life he can have his say, but when it comes to my show, I have to make my own decisions.” “How sexy would it be?” “Haha, there’s the front the the back, the bottom too, I don’t want to reveal too much flesh just to look sexy.”
Sally said she would try to lose weight to look good, but she didn’t go on a diet, instead, she wants to find the balance in her diet, because she needs to put in lots of energy to do her rehearsals and practice dances. She believes when the show starts, every day she would lose 2-3 pounds, as long as she would be thin enough to look good in her dresses, she would be happy. As for whether her husband had been supporting her by any actions? Sally complained that whenever Lam saw her lying on bed, so tired, he would always ask her “Is it really this tiring?” Sally said, “I told him, not everyone can be as lucky as he is, all he needs to do is to sing and people like it so much already. I don’t have such good fate. That man is truly fortunate!” Sally also said even though she’s so busy preparing for her concerts, she still worries about if her husband gets his meals properly… no matter what he wants he can just let her know… 100% Good wife in all aspects.
