HCM CITY —
Ly and her band will be supported by professional specialists from the Le Quy Duong Joint Stock Co, one of the city's prestigious entertainment agencies.
Her live show, called Vui (Joyfulness), will use high-tech equipment.
The singer will perform two nights before a selective audience of 400 at the city's Music Conservatory's concert hall.
She will perform dozens of her songs accompanied by violin and guitar.
"I will also sing songs by composers Sa Huynh and Thanh Tung," said Ly, who started her career as a songwriter and guitarist but recently turned to singing.
The 24-year-old artist said she would provide her fans with something new.
"My music is simple. Though I'll be singing the songs that bring me to the light, I think new styles are needed," Ly said.
Le Quy Duong, stage director of Ly's show, said: "We will try our best to provide Ly's fans with a great performance in a professional way."
"We're confident we can win over HCM City's fastidious fans," said Duong, owner of Le Quy Duong Company, which invested VND6 billion (US$300,000) in Ly's show.
Evening highlights will include romantic songs Chenh Venh (Unstable Feeling) and Mua Yeu (The Season of Love), which were named the best songs of 2008 and 2010 by the Viet Nam Television and The Thao&Van Hoa (Sports&Culture) magazine.
Her works, which feature simple words but an expressive style, encourage youngsters to learn more about the beauty of the Vietnamese language.
Ly studies music and began her professional music career in 2009, after winning the prize for Best Song of 2008 from Viet Nam Television's Vietnamese Songs programme.
For her live show, Ly spent time training her voice and working on her performance skills.
The show will take place on September 10 and 11 at the HCM City Music Conservatory, 122 Nguyen Du Street, District 1.
It will then travel to Quy Nhon City on September 17, and be staged at the Quang Trung Theatre.
The show will continue for two nights in Hoi An, September 28 and 30, at Truong Sanh and An Dinh palaces, Hue city.
Ly and her band will close their tour in Ha Noi on November 8, 9 and 15, at the Viet Nam History Museum on Trang Tien Street.
Her last performance will be staged for students free of charge. — VNS
