Fantasy on Ice: Sapporo Scenes, Makuhari Memories

JW_FaOI-M_06-05-2016_08B-2The spectacular Johnny Weir performs his Beyoncé program at Fantasy on Ice in Makuhari. More screencaps and HD video of his performance below!

OK! While Johnny continues to wing his way home today (or not) for a very brief stay in the US before heading back to Japan (again) for the rest of the Fantasy on Ice tour, we who are not battling the nightmarish hellscape delightful whimsy that is air travel these days have a plethora of fabulousness from Japan to catch up on.

He just finished performing in FaOI Sapporo over the weekend, which was broadcast on Sunday but sadly no video has yet surfaced of this. However, one of the shows from Makuhari also was broadcast on Sunday, which turned out to be a good news/bad news kind of thing. The bad news: Johnny’s Moonlight Sonata program was cut from the broadcast in favor of his Beyoncé. The good news: Johnny’s Beyoncé was included in the broadcast! So while we continue to hope that Moonlight will make it into one of the upcoming telecasts, we have glorious coverage of his Beyoncé, a program that reduced my entire Twitter feed to nothing but endless repetitions of these two emojis after the show aired: 🍅🍑. I’m sure the reference will be quite clear to you after you see the video.

Let’s start with some gifs, courtesy of dear Elena Vasileva:







Yes, of course, we all want to scroll down to the video NOW. But first, a quick note: Johnny’s birthday is coming up July 2, and YES! We are doing a group gift this year! Even though that’s only three weeks away! Details coming in a separate blog post . . . !

Following is a bunch of Beyoncé sizzle, HD video of just Johnny—just the way we like it, and including his appearances in the opening and closing numbers of the show—and a roundup of random stuff from Sapporo. Please enjoy repeatedly. 🍅🍑


Very special thanks to Elena for nearly all of these!
