Jane Zhang mysteriously dropped out of the ‘I Am A Singer’ competition right before the semi-finals, and the reason for it was unveiled on Jane’s Weibo yesterday.Remember the last time on world tour, I said “I also want to be the best in your hearts.”This is the direction of my hard work! #janezhangbangtheworld# officiallytooktenyears, thank you to all of you guys for always being by my side. @janezhangBANGtheWorldconcert
Jane announced the kickoff of her 2015 world tour ‘Bang The World” yesterday, releasing two very eye catching promotional posters by Chen Man. This is a smart move, as just like G.E.M, ‘I Am A Singer’ has boosted her popularity greatly and now is a great time to either go on tour or release some new songs. Jane did announce that she was trying to take a more western approach as a singer, and the posters reflect that quite obviously. It’s edgy and sexy, just what people outside of China will stop to look at. I do want to know who was in charge of naming the tour and what meaning they were trying to project, but I do hope it gets good reception in China where the use of “bang” is known only in the K-pop group Big Bang and the Ariana Grande song. One thing Jane should learn before trying to break into the Western music industry is that there are many words with double meanings. Maybe you should play safe like G.E.M did- you can’t go wrong with letters of the alphabet like X.X.X.
The only thing I’m interested to see unfold is how Jane will lay out her concerts to match her new image. For years she’s been known as the singer of historical drama soundtracks, with the majority of her works slow and very Asian sounding ballads. I’m guessing at a complete 360 turn of music genres, but the only thing is, will her old fans like the switch?
The released dates of the concerts for now are:
6.27 Shanghai/7.04 Changsha/7.11Wuhan/7.18 Fuzhou/7.25 Shenzhen/8.01 Beijing/8.08 Dalian.
Wishing the best to Jane and her #Bangtheworld tour!
