Hot on the heels of the release of Bedtime Stories came the start of Jay's The Invincible concert tour at Shanghai's Mercedes Benz Arena on 30 June 2106.

Playlist of fancam vids:
Featuring a 4D stage and space theme, he went through a repertoire of songs from all his albums, with some significant omissions, most glaringly the absence of old favourite, Nunchucks.
Was this a result of a previous incident at a concert in China where a fan had complained about being hit by that weapon which Jay and his dancers always fling out to the audience?
Or did Jay figure it was time for a change anyway? *furrowed brows*
He has said many times that he is not a natural dancer and needs lots of practice to get his steps correct, so it was a treat to see him performing for Stolen Love.
Methinks he looked a trifle serious as he stepped, twirled and swung his lovely partner around for that 40-second segment....guess he was concentrating hard to make sure it was perfect. :)
Another difference from his previous The Era and Opus Jay concerts was the absence of usual guest artistes, Cindy Yen and Darren. Instead, it was young Patrick Brasca's turn to shine, as he performed his song, Try from Kung Fu Panda 3.
Costumes for this concert were colourful and featured lots of pink but this yellow patterned suit from Moschino has to be the most gaudy outfit of all. ;)
Not forgetting this from the opening number:
Some favourite shots:
And what Jay Chou concert is complete without an elaborate piano?
And the icing on the cake?
Has to be this photo....
I'm so feeling the JH LOVE!!!
Besides Hannah, Mama Chou was also spotted in the audience and Hathaway had also gone along for the trip!
Hannah revealed that Jay would feed her before going on stage and Mr Chou confessed that the best post-concert experience for him was to be able to hug his daughter when he returned to the hotel. *heart melts*
Next on the calendar is Invincible: Beijing and of course, Hathaway's first birthday, which is likely to be celebrated there on 10 July!
Do join in the virtual party for her on Jayannah!
