As she continues to make her presence felt around the world, Norwegian alt-pop sensation AURORA performed her first ever concert in Taiwan this past week, playing to a sold out crowd of over 2,000 fans at Zepp New Taipei.
Arriving onstage with the intention to invite audiences to fully immerse themselves in her “enchanting, ethereal musical realm”, the ‘Runaway’ singer told the revellers: “Taipei, I am finally here! I’m so happy to come because Qing-Feng is here!”, before delighting them further by using Mandarin and Taiwanese phrases including “I love you all”, “well done” and “I am adorable” throughout the course of the show.
In a touching moment, AURORA was later joined on stage by Golden Melody award-winning artist Qing-Feng Wu to perform a rendition of the pairs highly praised “east-meets-west” duet, “Storm”. With the stage re-set to recreate the moonlight landscape featured on the singles artwork, the duo brought the house down in what was to be their debut live performance together.

Connected through Universal Music, the two label mates first began co-creating the track back in 2021, then after almost a year of making music at a distance and collaborating online, experimenting with their own ideas and thoughts, the pair developed a strong friendship and eventually met up face-to-face in Norway to complete the song’s final recording in person.
Co-written by both artists alongside Skylstad, Glen Roberts and Mei Yeh, with production by Howe Chen, Magnus Skylstad, and Wu Qing Feng, the song has gone on to amass more than a million streams on Spotify alone.
In a press statement issued at the time of the singles release, Qing Feng Wu said of AURORA: “I have long been amazed by her ethereal vocal power. It is beyond my expectation that we can be the storytellers of our own music together.”
