2019 Mars Concert
Despite pre-production venue troubles (for which Hua Chenyu Studio cited force majeure) that saw the concerts moved from Shenzhen to Haikou and postponed for two weeks, Hua Chenyu’s 2019 Mars Concerts opened with much flair and fanfare at Wuyuan River Stadium on November 15, kicking off a three-day beachfront music fest for his ever-growing legion of Martians (as Hua Chenyu fans are called).
The delay and venue change that probably threw a wrench in many fans’ schedules proved to be a tremendous boon for Haikou’s tourism-based economy. Hotels and B&Bs in the vicinity of the venue were booked full shortly after the venue change was announced. Shops and restaurants cooked up Mars Concert Specials and discounts for fans. Hua Chenyu’s music was played non-stop in Haikou malls and eateries. Red banners welcoming Martians decorated many a storefront. The city’s famous duty-free shops at Mova Mall clocked 17.6 million yuan in sales for the three days of the concerts. According to local newspaper Hainan Daily, about 8,300 police and security guards were deployed, providing crowd control for more than 120,000 people, some 33,000 special shuttle buses and public vehicles were mobilized specifically for concert goers.
With top-of-the-line stage design, several new songs, and a set list that spans various musical genres and themes, the 2019 Mars Concerts are a resounding success and left fans eagerly waiting for next year's Mars Concerts. Click here for the live chat and updates about the 2019 Mars Concerts.

Hua dislikes repeating the same performances again and again, so the song lists for each concert date are slightly different. He would also rearrange many of his songs specially for his concerts, making sure to keep each concert different.
