The heart-throb will appear with two bands of inmates of Stanley Prison on Sunday, the local government statement said.

Lau, who recently caused a riot in China when fans were locked out of one of his performances, is to be named as an official 'Rehabilitation Ambassador of the Correctional Services Department' at the event.

The 43-year-old is a leading star in the world of Canto-pop, a hybrid of Chinese ballads and Western pop which fills the local charts, and also an award-winning actor who has starred in some of Hong Kong's most critically acclaimed films.

Among his many movie credits is 1990's "The Prisoner", in which he appeared alongside fellow Hong Kong movie star Jackie Chan.
