    Does anyone have information about the tickets (price & where can we buy them). The website and the Facebook page are all in Chinese and the Google translation is quite bad :s
    Thanks

    the link above is for Taipei location. The official public tix hasn't came out yet, they are only selling to Amway members right now. They are suppose to start selling in about 2 weeks or so. What location are you interested in?

    Thank you. Wow, indeed! Until now Yuna so rarely has done shows outside her own Korean ones. I really hope that if she doesn't compete anymore, we will see her in more of the international shows. Of course, it's great to be the main star in her own country, and Korean fans are like no other fans, but the bigger shows in other countries would be a new experience for Yuna (because of the crazy worship of her Korean fans there is still some pressure on her in her own shows). I would really like it if she was invited to Art on Ice in the near future (and accepted) - that's also such a big show, but with a totally different concept and public (I guess, the Swiss public in particular can seem almost cool compared to the Koreans, although they are respectful to the skaters).

    Yes, of course, I understand that, but at least there won't be so many of them :D.

    seems Yuna Kim only attend Shanghai's show.

    and beside Martion,the show will invite the chinese singer who performed with Zijun Li as a guest star again.

    hope for videos especially Yuna's
    I've missed her, she's doing less galas and ice shows
    and doing more ads and commercials now.

    I don't remember her doing many shows while she was competing. She had her own shows in Korea like twice in a year, and nothing much apart from that - just the same as now.

    Which hotel will be official in Shanghai?
    I'm fully ready to be there! ;)

    Send me a PM, please!

    And of the two, Pudong and Hongqiao, which one is more accessible to the Oriental Sports Center?

    So for good? Well i've been preparing for this since last year when they talked about the future and family plans but it still doesn't come easy really. They will be terribly missed :(

    I'm happy for them because it seems like they've wanted to take a break and start a family, but I'll miss them. One of the all-time best live skating moments of my life was seeing their free skate at 2003 Worlds in DC. The area was completely electrified.

    Hmm...
    I think Alissa won't attend this show because of surgery.

    S/Z and Lu chen hold a press conference in Shenzhen.
    Zhao will sing a song for Shen on ArOI.
    They will make a new program "our 20 years",which is made of their four old programs.
    They next goal is teaching the young pairs and promoting firgure skating around the country.

    Wow. The "20 Years" program sounds just epic. I hope it would be long enough to allow for reliving the key moments of the four programs and culminating in, what else, Nessun Dorma.

    I'm glad Chen Lu will be joining in the Shenzhen stop of the shows. I feel she's one of the underrated among the skating greats, and deserves deeper appreciation from the Chinese public.

    Johnny tweeted this morning that he's performing two new numbers for these shows. I know there were plenty of pics and videos last year, so I look forward to seeing how he's skating now... :D

    Only you, Johnny :lol:

    seems SZ's mix program will be made of turando、thais、adagio in G Minor、My Way.and it will contain many difficult elements.

    and official site just confirmed allisa won't come due to the injure.

    Sounds fabulous. I envy those going to the show to watch this great pair give what's likely their last performance in their prime form. They were sharp as ever at ATS as well.
