From Rugby 7s to world-class performers, this April is full of events you don’t want to miss
Grab your diary and text the crew – these are the events you don’t want to miss in Hong Kong this month. Just when you thought the madness of March was over, April shows up with Rugby 7s, two major concerts and even some of the hottest dancing in town.
If you thought Christmas was the most wonderful time of year, then you’ve clearly never woken up before dawn, put on a banana outfit and then hit up the Rugby 7s South Stand. It’s debauchery at its best (and there are rugby matches too). In fact, it’s considered the best of the World Rugby Sevens Series competitions, and people look forward to it all year long. This year it’s happening 5 – 7 April, and if you didn’t get lucky in the lottery, there are plenty of other ways to enjoy the weekend, like the Official Hong Kong Sevens After Party at Lan Kwai Fong.
There’s no need to keep ‘Dreaming with a Broken Heart’, because the master of ‘Heartbreak Warfare’ is finally coming to Hong Kong! John Mayer is bringing his sad eyes, soulful songs and top-notch Instagram to the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre on 8 April, 2019. Expect two full sets, with a blend of old and new favourites. Tickets to see the seven-time GRAMMY winner sold out fast, so we hope you got yours in time!

If you didn’t get tickets to John Mayer, hopefully you snagged one to Ed Sheeran’s Divide World Tour 2019. The “Shape of You” singer will be back in town 17 – 18 April, 2019, to replace gigs he had to cancel last year after a bicycle accident. He’ll be playing at Hong Kong Disneyland, officially making it the happiest place on Earth (sorry Mickey). Catch him before he jets off to Singapore, Tokyo and Bangkok!
