Love Songs Lead into the Chinese New Year With Karaoke at the Summit of the Sydney Harbour Bridge

From 1st to 21st February 2016, BridgeClimb is re-extending an invitation to take part in a unique Chinese New Year celebration and is catering to China’s enduring demand for romance with Mandarin karaoke classics at the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Couples, as well as friends and family, can for a limited time book onto The Karaoke Climb and complete a bucket-list journey, safely ascending the arches of one of Australia’s best loved icons towards plasma TV screens, microphones and concert style speakers all staged on the summit of the Bridge.

This year’s play list is the result of a WeChat and Weibo competition, has grown to include eight Mandarin songs, two Korean songs and two Japanese songs, and is teeming with love songs.

BridgeClimb Climb Leader, Joanne Wu said, “The Sydney Harbour Bridge is a perfect place to enjoy romance and to deeply explore the city. The exciting view over the city and sparkling harbour is breathtaking and few couples can resist the urge to hold hands or steal a kiss for the camera.

“These love songs will add to the romance and we’re expecting some fluttering hearts as Climbers are serenaded by their partner. It wouldn’t surprise me if there are a few marriage proposals also.”

The Bridge is no stranger to declarations of love with more than 4,000 engagements and 26 weddings having already taken place on BridgeClimb Sydney's watch. To celebrate Chinese Valentine's Day this year, also known as Qixi Festival, a violinist performed a rendition of The Moon Represents My Heart at the Bridge summit, which had been decorated in red drapes for the occasion.

Other limited edition and one off experiences tailored to enhance the BridgeClimb experience for Chinese Climbers have included a Lion Dance performance at the summit, a Moon Festival celebration, a Mahjong championship event, and a magnificent 15-metre long Dragon scaling the arches of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

The most popular Mandarin songs voted for the BridgeClimb Sydney Karaoke in order of popularity were: 1. Manual of Youth by TF Boys; followed by Little Apple by Chopsticks Brothers; 3. Those Were the Days… by Jordan Chan; 4. Like You by G.E.M; 5. Jade Solid Gold by Leo Ku Kui Kei ; 6. In My Heart by Jacky Cheung; 7. Descendants of Dragon by Wang Leehom and 8. Love Me Don't Go by Chang Chen-yue.

The Karaoke Climb enables Chinese Climbers to take part in an authentic Sydney experience whist celebrating the Year of the Monkey in a truly memorable way. Singers will receive a complimentary 8-second video to share with their family and friends on social media.

It’s a great gift opportunity and will operate daily between Monday 1st February and the Sunday 21st February 2016 inclusive. Following the standard BridgeClimb Mandarin route to the summit, the commentary on this experience will be in Mandarin and will depart each day at 9.30am, 3.00pm, and 7.30pm.
