    Official site: http://artistryonice.streetvoice.com/in_index.html
    June 8 - Taipei, Taiwan
    June 10 - Guangzhou, China
    June 14 - Shanghai, China
    June 16 - Beijing, China

    I'm not sure if everyone pictured currently on the site will be performing in all 4 shows: Shen/Zhao, Evgeni Plushenko, Shizuka Arakawa, Johnny Weir (all 4 shows are listed on his official site), Kurt Browning (AOI is listed on the KurtFiles site), Joannie Rochette, Jeff Buttle, etc. I also see photos of Alissa Czisny and Irina Slutskaya lower down. Patrick Chan currently is listed for 4 AOI shows on Skate Canada's National Team Athlete Appearances page but is not pictured.

    He is not mentioned in the news, so I have no idea whether he'll be skating there.

    But, Lambiel is such a wonderful surprise to me:D

    Great to see Irina Slutskaya participating. She has really been enjoying a lot of success as a professional, especially with the huge boom of popularity of skating in Asia right now.

    She's a self proclaimed fashionista with an annoying baby voice, and she has her own C-list fashion TV show but thinks she's an A list fashionista on the top of her game.

    :lol: I know it's unhealthy for me to have cyber hatred towards someone that I don't know in real life but I just really don't like 'try-hards'.

    Taipei Show-
    I got some videos and is uploading. The show is mostly sold out with few spots here and there, although the sponsors advertised heavily this year and had some deals with BMW/Amway with tickets.

    By the way, almost all the skaters fell either with a jump, stag jump, or just skating by. Kurt later said there was something going on with the lights and he couldn't see. I also saw them patching up the ice during intermission. My guess was that the ice surface wasn't in top shape (wasn't very cold in there), plus they have lights ON the ice, in the back, and the regular spot lights that just got too confusing for the skaters. There were 3 group numbers, intro, end and a mid one. Hongbo didn't really skate except to a few short footwork thing. Xue was there as well, very pregnant but looked great!

    Oh, I would expect to see vidoeos up soon. People were taking their ipad and filming the whole thing!
