ICYMI: Full coverage of Artistry on Ice’s opening show in Taipei here!


So I wasn’t even planning on blogging today, but this is what happens during the Weibocalypse: so many amazing goodies are available that there’s hardly time to finish one post before there’s more for the next…

Fresh off their triumphant Taipei debut, the Artistry on Ice team arrived in Beijing earlier today to prepare for tomorrow evening’s show. So we begin with a very brief airport arrival series from Beijing, and then on to a bunch of bonus Taiwan stuff that is all too gorgeous to pass up, including yes, more video…!


WELCOME TO BEIJING

IDK why everything was rushed, but possibly because the flight from Taiwan had been delayed several hours due to weather, so I think they hit the ground already behind schedule for a tour that could not be tighter on time: Beijing performance Friday night, Shanghai on Saturday, and the final show in Shenzhen on Sunday. So after the hasty hello-and-goodbye, Johnny posted this message on his Weibo for his beloved Chinese Pandas:

At the airport, in his usual international-tour posture: chatting with fans and grabbing a pen to sign autographs with one hand while clutching a ginormous bouquet with the other.

Another view, in which the flowers completely obscure the fan holding them while waiting for Johnny…

Safely at the hotel with yet more flowers.

Thank you Linda and my wonderful fans in Beijing for such a wonderful welcome! The flowers are taller than me!
