Yip Sai Wing – Beyond’s multi-talented co-founder
Best-known as the co-founder and drummer of hugely popular Hong Kong rock outfit Beyond, Yip Sai Wing later pursued a solo career which also saw him branch out into acting. You can both buy and sell Yip Sai Wing tickets on StubHub today.
Drummer, singer, actor
Born in Hong Kong in 1963, Yip Sai Wing began playing the drums in his teens and formed the band Beyond with frontman Wong Ka Kui after they met in a music store. After adding bassist Wong Ka Keung and guitarist Paul Wong to the line-up, the group became one of Hong Kong’s hottest musical exports. But tragedy struck in 1993 when Wong Ka Kui died in an accident at a TV studio. Wing and his fellow bandmates continued to perform as Beyond before taking a break in 1999 to pursue their solo careers. Wing released his first EP, "Beautiful Time Machine", two years later and followed it up in 2003 with "Remember You". Beyond briefly reunited to celebrate their 20th anniversary before Wing added to his solo catalogue with the EPs "Leaves Turned Red" and "Mercy". By this point he’d also established himself as an actor, thanks to roles in "Human Pork Chop", "A Wicked Ghost III: The Possession" and "Escape from Hong Kong Island".

Rediscovering the magic with Paul Wong
Although Beyond officially disbanded in 2005, drummer Wing and guitarist Wong have continued to keep their music alive with a series of live shows celebrating their influential back catalogue. In 2008 they hit the road for the "Beyond Next Stage Live" tour and a year later performed three shows under the title of "This Is Rock and Roll". In 2019 they once again took to the stage together to give classic Beyond songs such as "Glorious Years", "Truly Love You", "Never Doubt You", "Big Land" and "Boundless Oceans Vast Skies" a new lease of life. Accompanied by several other gifted musicians, an elaborate stage design and an array of dazzling visuals, the pair visited several cities across Asia including Macau, Dalian, Foshan and Shenzhen for the tour dubbed "Impulse".
