Taiwanese singer-songwriter Jay Chou is famous for one thing – writing songs that combine Chinese and Western music styles to produce the best of all Mandopop R&B tunes, alongside some dabbling in the rock and pop genres. He’s also famous for taking charge of the storyboard, directing, and editing the music videos for most of his songs. Yes, we know, he’s pretty darn talented!
Since his debut, Jay has been on at least five series of solo concert tours, with stops in cities such as Taipei, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Beijing, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Las Vegas, Toronto, and Vancouver.
And now, Jay is embarking on yet another one in conjunction with the release of his latest album, “Opus12”. The album has been so widely received that it was only apt that the King of Mandopop himself follows up with yet another mind-blowingly awesome world tour!
Named, the “Opus Jay World Tour”, it will start from May 2013 onwards, with the first leg of the tour in Beijing. After which, he will be heading to Shanghai and further into the tour, Singapore. The Singapore gig, slated to happen on 6th – 8th June 2013, recently hit headlines when it recorded a whopping total of 18,000 tickets sold in only 2.5 hours.
But that’s not the best part just yet – it was recently revealed that Jay Chou’s “Opus Jay World Tour” will also include a stop in Malaysia. Yuh huh. He’s coming back to Kuala Lumpur! Full details haven’t been announced yet but we do know that it’s happening in August 2013. Well, peeps, get ready to race to buy tickets because we’re pretty sure these ones are going to sell like hot cakes too.
It is Jay Chou, after all.
