Jay Chou The Invincible Concert Tour 2016





Been contemplating if I should write this post in English or Chinese, lol.
I think I can express better in English because I've been writing in English but...
what if Jay Chou wants to read my blog? Lol, joking.
I'll just go with the flow and give you the annoying English+Chinese posting.



我从小就很喜欢音乐
我放学回家都关在房间听歌 在周杰伦之前我是超爱westlife的 哈哈
在我 8 岁的时候 我舅舅复制了周杰伦的第一张专辑给我
我才 8 岁哦 那时候是他刚发行 "jay" 同名专辑
听起来有点变态 可是我 8 岁就很想嫁给他
我的个人电邮地址非常老土-daphnejay 我超疯周杰伦 什么都是 jay jay jay
至今不后悔 我的私人电邮地址用了13年没换过 还是daphnejay 



为什么花上rm600看周杰伦的演唱会
 我还很后悔这次没买rm800 vvip1 的票
我看过很多演唱会 我为音乐而活, lol 西方东方音乐我都喜欢
近几年来多数是西方音乐 因为周杰伦真的是华语乐坛地表最强
除了他 好像都没什么好看的 好听的 lol lol 
我最近看过难忘的是陈奕迅 想看蔡依林的 但是人不在国内
我以前也是蔡依林的铁粉 72变 舞娘 唱的跳的 我也可以现场来一段 哈哈
最近我喜欢eric周舆哲我觉得他是新声代的创作才子
以后别做朋友 你 好不好 我都很喜欢 


I really like artistes who can write songs themselves.
That's how you know an artiste.
When he/she writes a melody, you feel it.
When he/she writes a piece of lyrics, you understand that feeling you feel through the melody.
That's why I love Jay Chou, he participates in every single song.
I can't explain why I even love a man so much when he doesn't even know my existence.
So many unforgettable and classic songs from him, too many.
I don't know how and who is going to take over the next decades in the Chinese music scene.
Jay Chou's in, he's IN for almost two decades now, greatest so far.
I want my future kids or nephew to have an idol like this, someone so legendary.
I don't know how and who is going to beat him on this.
It makes me wonder if Jacky Cheung, Andy Lau were this influential in their days.
You hardly find artistes who write every single of their song.
Do LeeHom and Mayday write all their songs? I think Mayday does right?
Ok, Ed Sheeran actually does write all his songs.
Maybe that's why I like Ed Sheeran so much too.
I like the self-writing, self-producing, self-composing, creative type of artistes.
太喜欢创作型的歌手
To be honest, I really can't find anyone who is more impressive than Jay Chou.
I'm looking forward to more of Eric Chou's music.
Eric Chou is good, his songs are good and touching but it's lacking something.
It's lacking a personal taste, a personal touch, a distinct style.
There's no style in his music whereas Jay Chou's style is so special, so unique, it's irreplaceable.
We call it the J style - J式风格
It's so strong, you hear a song with the J style, you know it's Jay Chou.
Eric Chou is 21 now and Jay Chou debuted when he was 21 too.
 Look at both debuts.
Jay Chou's debut was wayyyyyy more impressive than not only Eric Chou but everyone else.
Still, I think Eric Chou's up and coming for the future generations.
I hope he has it in him.
Any new Mandopop artistes that are impressive nowadays? Do recommend to me.



So, I parked my car at The Gardens and I took Grabcar to Stadium Merdeka for the concert.
The driver was chatty, I told him that I was going to see a Taiwanese popstar.
He's indian, I asked if he knows Jay Chou.
Surprised or not surprised, he knows who Jay Chou is.
He said he didn't know he's that famous.
The roads were congested, the sidewalks were flooded with fans.
He asked me about Jay Chou's date of birth.
I told him he's a Capricorn, born in the year of horse.
He said "ahhhhhhhh, no wonder, he has the creativity!"
Yeh? At that moment, I decided to have a kid at the year of horse, a capricorn too, lol lol lol.
He asked why do I love Jay Chou?
I said he writes his music and he makes his music.
He's very famous among the Chinese community because his songs are like anthems.
He plays the piano, the guitar, the drums, the cello, flute+++
He raps, he beatboxs, he acts...



Why spend so much for Jay Chou?
Because he's legendary like that.



I have to say that the organizers for this tour sucked so bad.
They are inconsiderate and unprofessional.
I think the organizers are similar to the previous tour but they did it so bad this time.
They know that the fans will suck it up, will do everything for Jay Chou.
Take it for granted because it's Jay Chou.
Jay Chou's reputation is Jay Chou's reputation, your rep is your rep.

There was only one entrance and one exit for the VIPs.
I'm not sure about the general entry because it's another entrance very far away.
I think they too only have an entrance and an exit.
I doubt there's even a fire exit or an emergency exit if anything bad happens.
*touch wood*
We had to walk a narrow flight of stairs to get out without any directions or assistance.
Everyone was stuck in a constricted space.
What if a fire happens? What if?
*touch wood x2*
I don't mind the walking, I know there were renovation and constructions happening around us
but at least make a clear path for us to enter and exit.



Why spend so much for Jay Chou's concert?
He puts in the work and he spends a lot of money on his performance.
What do I mean by spending a lot of money on his performance?
Every singer does too?
Jay Chou's likes everything glam, his concerts have been glamorous.
Production cost is always high with all the special stage effects.
From an artiste who only sang and played piano on stage, he didn't use to dance.
Jay Chou was that type, The Ed Sheeran, John Legend type.
Ed Sheeran played three Wembley shows, 150,000 people altogether?
He played solo, he has got a stage with LED screens behind.
No fancy lights, no fancy costumes, no dancers, nothing fancy.
I watched Coldplay at Wembley too.
Same thing, nothing fancy, no fancy costumes, maybe a little bit of fancy lights, yes.




From an artiste who only sang and played piano on stage.
Jay Chou became more, he dances, he's a stage entertainer now, he's always striving for more.
He has dancers, dancers need practice, need costumes.
He has the crazy lights and firework.
He got the massive LCDs with crazy visual effects.
Astronaut? Stunt performer? Yes.
Fancy and special costumes? Say 7 outfits throughout the show? Cool.
What about a realistic aquarium? Sure.
Classical piano? Let's modify the piano. One? No, two please.
What about interacting with audiences? Ok.
A band with backup vocalist, nah not enough, let's throw in different mouthpieces? Doable.
Let's say I bring a circus to the stage? Why not?







These are costs.
The cost is so high, hence the ticket is expensive.
You get to pick what KIND OF performance you want to watch.
If Jay Chou plays Albert Hall with just a piano, I'll still pay big bucks for it.
When you like it, you just like it and you do it because trust me, it'll be worth it.
Adele, she only sings, I don't think she even performs with a piano.
Her ticket price is sky high but everyone is die to go, including me.
Then, we have Beyonce, sky high ticket price, I die to go too.
She's a stage performer, the best entertainer in the world for now.
I too don't know how and who is going take over Beyonce's success the next decades.
Her costumes are specially made for her, her dancers are trained and dressed well.
Balmain, Gucci, Givenchy, everything fly+++


What I'm saying here is that Jay Chou puts in a lot of effort for his tour.
I'm not saying that others who don't do the "fancy" stuff do not put in the effort.
It's not about the quality of the artistes that I'm comparing.
It's the cost that I'm comparing.

I always think that Western artistes make more money than Asians, haha.
I wonder about Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Beyonce though because their tours are so fancy.
Uhm, but I'm sure they still make big bucks, don't you worry, haha.




I was only 10/12 when I went to my first Jay Chou concert.
I was a stingy child.
I saved every penny, I was rich at my age but I never spent on anything else but Jay Chou.
Jay Chou's music albums, dvds, merchandises including cup noodles with his face on, lol.




10+years ago, Jay Chou's VIP concert ticket only sold at RM300.
Jay Chou VVIP tickets cost RM800 now and it went up to RM1000 last two tours.
My friend, Jacqueline is also a huge fan of Jay Chou.
I convinced her to skip VVIP1 this time because we have watched his concert so many times.
I feel so sorry because we might have had the chance to interact with Jay Chou if
we were to sit at VVIP1 zone.
Sorry, Jacqueline, haha!





Oh ya, I hope this boy and this girl who waved at me read this.
They were waving at me for a good 5 seconds.
I was looking at their direction but I was totally spaced out.
So, I'm afraid that they might think I'm arrogant.
Sorry, I was super spaced out and I waved back after like 10 seconds
but I don't know if you two saw it.
Come closer next time, I'm very friendly, haha.
Some readers came to take picture with me, I didn't speak much
because I didn't know what to say, super awkward, but thank you for all your kind words.
You all made me feel like a mini Jay Chou that day, haha!
I hope you all enjoyed the show as much as I did.



The fans who got to sing with Jay Chou were so so so lucky.
I think I'd die if I had a chance to sing with him.
If I were to pick a song to sing with him at that time.
I'd do "瓦解", a song he originally wrote for Nan Quan Mama.
Jay Chou was considered an indie artiste until he got so famous and his music became more "pop".
To me, he introduced rap to the Chinese music scene.
A lot of people couldn't accept his style of music 10+years ago.
I love rapping, I used to rap to Linkin Park and Eminem.
Rap was more a Western thing, you know.
Jay Chou made me and taught me to rap in Mandarin.
Surprisingly, I can rap to so many of his songs.
That's how you learn Chinese too, you sing to Jay Chou.

Don't you wish you could turn back time and keep Jay Chou in a pocket?
Lol, why do I wanna keep everyone in the pocket? Haha.
2000s was such a good era to live in.
I want to go back to my teens and relive such a fantastic teen years.

Shoot, Jay Chou always makes you feel this way.
Nostalgia.




As expected, I've been playing Jay Chou all day all night after the concert.
Made some short song covers for Facebook and Instagram, haha.




周杰伦的音乐太经典
如果要我选一张最喜欢的专辑 我选不到
我大爱周杰伦同名专辑, 八度空间, 别说了, 最后的战役mv+制作幕后花絮 我看了上百次吧
叶惠美 以父之名的我也看上千次
有说到早期周杰伦算是indie歌手
他的曲风很大胆
比如 威廉古堡 对不起 印第安老斑鸠 (真的很惊讶他唱了这首)
这歌没有爆红 但是风味独特 格调一流
抒情歌他最在行
很多很好听的 超粉也应该很爱
你有 借口 搁浅 爱在西元前 龙卷风 黑色毛衣 明明就 算什么男人 爱情废材等
你可知道 有更多更好听的 如
分裂 上海一九四三 爱情悬崖+++


I don't know who's going to top him in the future.
真的不懂 也想不到有谁在未来可以和他一样强
我知道 J式音乐 周杰伦 是无法被取代
但是人会老 我们会老 新一代的人 下一代的人 会有个像我们那么厉害的偶像吗
 真的好庆幸存在在有周杰伦的时代
He set the bar too high!



超喜欢"半岛铁盒"的编曲,歌词,转音假音全部on point.
最后的chorus"铁盒的序"的停顿是我最爱的部分, 死要唱那个部分就是了.

  1. Bravo daphne! Although i m not really in with JAY's music but some certain songs which i have to admit that are truly touching my heart with him. I m actually a fan of LEEHOM, and i did agree with what you point out where he didn't write every single song in his music but the thing is different people different style as long as enjoy both pieces of music that's enough! Plus, I have the same view with you is i m also a fan of eric chou right now, like what you say he definitely would take over the next decades but because he is too young still not enough experiences in this career and of course he's lacking something touch for sure, give him some times which he are already enough great at his age only 20s right now! Anyway,let's look forward to awesome music in future, and very enjoy your writing as well! :)

  4. When I was on my vacation, I have had time visit his concert. It was an incredible show! All these emotions that were shown on the stage by this incredible singer... All I can say-bravo! I hope he will visit my city with a concert someday. And I'll be the first who will buy a ticket on this website https://ticketcrab.com/concert-tickets

  5. My teens were spent on Taiwanese singers like Cyndi Wang and Claire Kuo. But, I didn't go to any concert. Now I'm into K-pop, I'm attending their fan meets and concerts whenever possible.
