    I will anxiously await videos.
    What a privilege it would be to see them "live".

    Joannie tweeted a couple days ago:

    Joannie Rochette ‏@JoannieRochette
    En route vers la Chine pour deux semaines de spectacles! Taipei-Beijing-Shanghai-Shenzhen / On my way to China for two weeks! Bye twitter!

    So I think she's doing all 4 shows. Kurt's sending random messages and photos for his Facebook page from Taiwan:

    Can't wait for next Tuesday! :cheer2: (Though I think it's pretty stupid to have it on a Tuesday night, and have heard ticket sales are pretty sucky :()

    FYI, I'm also posting Kurt's updates to the Kurt Files website, since Facebook is blocked in China:
    http://www.kurtfiles.com/forfun/kbfromaoi12.php

    Also, thanks to our own midori, Google Translate, and my Chinese-English dictionary, I've got a program listing from the Taipei show:
    http://www.kurtfiles.com/events/artistryonice12runlist.php

    Any corrections would be appreciated ;).

    I suspect the runlist will be slightly different in China, what with Yuna skating in Shanghai (and are there additional Chinese skaters - Song Nan and Li Zijun - joining in China as well?).

    Thanks for the YouTube links, cmchan! It's too bad YouTube blocks "I'm Yours" on copyright grounds but it was fun looking at the other videos.

    I don't suppose you'd mind looking at my runlist link http://www.kurtfiles.com/events/artistryonice12runlist.php to tell me if I got anything really wrong?

    can't find too many reports...I don't know how to use taipei's forum very well...

    this is Shen Zhao's first program,Zhao song with a singer,and Shen sit on a "moon"in the sky,then the moon come down,they skate together,very beautiful and romantic:

    their second program"our 20 years",in red:
    http://media.zenfs.com/zh_hant_tw/News/cna/20120609000128M.jpg

    there are some videos on youtube,you can search for them.

    according to some reports,S/Z and Plushenko are the most popular.

    I can! Thanks so much =).

    Kurt *loved* the Korean crowds. If he were invited again and the schedule worked out (unlike the spring show which conflicted with CSOI), I wouldn't be terribly surprised if he went back.

    By the way, last year's show was only 1/2 sold out even on the upper levels. I was quite surprised they decided to do this again as the sponsors probably lost quite a bit of money last year. This year they had a lot of Taiwan celebs in attendance though.

    well,although they can't sell out those tickets,they give them to collaborator as a gift.the stadiums are always full.
    TV and newspapers talk about the show and it's sponsers for free.The advertising effect is perfect.And it's much cheaper then do a TV ad for a long time.Hold an ice show is not very expensive here.
    actually,most singer's concert here even can't sold out 1/2,their main income is from the sponsers.

    Ditto!!!! And I'd like to recommend him to show us another K-Pop.

    JinSeo Kim did this already though I bet it will make Korean fans crazy!!! (JinSeo Kim's version)

    The attendance was pretty good this year, probably boosted by a stronger cast.

    I've read nothing but raving reviews from skating fans and non-skating fans.
