I wanted to post this for some of the girls. Mainly the Jay Chou fans out there. My boyfriend and I went to his Sydney concert on July 3rd and it was pretty amazing! I managed to take pictures and record 2 or 3 songs (but I wasn't supposed to shhh). Hope you enjoy it! Also the last picture is a picture of some guy and Jay Chou after the concert. That random guy is my good friend Jason and believe it or not he was Jay's bodyguard for 5 days while he was here in Sydney! He ate with Jay, slept near Jay, went shopping with Jay and guided Jay to the washrooms! Jason even managed to get a signed poster for me and Kadi :)
Acer Arena was filled that night!
There were huge screens with chinese subtitles so everyone could sing along to his songs! So karaoke :D
Kadi's enjoying the concert with cup of beer :p
Jay and his posse (Nan Quan MaMa singer)
Nan Quan MaMa's Lara and Chase? (I'm not sure about all the members)
One of his dancers proposed on stage to his girlfriend! You would think she accepted but we actually don't know her final answer :/
Jay and his drums :)
Jay and his guzheng (a traditional chinese musical instrument)
During the final song of the night he performed Nunchucks again this time in the original format and in the end he threw his nunchucks to a lucky fan! Now I know what you're thinking *WOW THAT'S SO NICE OF HIM. I'M SO JEALOUS OF THE FAN WHO CAUGHT IT*. Think again. We're talking REAL wood sticks and metal chain nunchucks I mean that would hurt! Why couldn't he just throw a hat or something you know anything but a dangerous weapon. But still everyone went crazy and it was totally awesome!
Jay Chou - Silence
Jay and his piano :D
Jay Chou - Nunchucks (alternate version)
Jay and his guitar :))
The thing I love about Jay Chou is his ability to sing live. Once the piano came out his fans hit the roof. It was the loudest screams I've ever heard! He likes to change his songs too. For example a lot of the songs we heard that night had a lot of ad libbing! He would sing things like "It's great to be in Sydney" or "Are you guys having fun?" and sneak it into his songs. It was fun night!
PS. I had dinner with Jason the other night and I asked him about Jay Chou. He told me he isn't how the media portrays him. He told me that Jay is really nice. He laughs a lot and likes to play with everyone on his team.
PPS. Jason also told me that Leehom Wang is coming to Sydney in March 2010!!!!!!!!!!
