20 days to TP concerts

Some random news abt DT. Apparently he will be branding some kinda jeans, not sure which brand. Guess EMI really want their pound of flesh from DT for not releasing album this yr. Pushing him to limits with China appearances & now selling jeans although any nice pixs or cms of him in denims are more than welcome ^__^ Then rumors he has asked A-Mei to be his guest in the Taipei concerts but not confirmed. Also it seemed A-Mei has agreed to be guest for Show Luo in Nov so may not be possible for her to be David's guest. Anyway hopefully its not more paparazzi lies & A-Mei can find time to be onstage with David as for sure it will be wonderful to see them performing together.
David has moved house in low-key fashion & hopefully his new residence has 24-hr security. So I changed blogskin to celebrate his temporary flight from round-the-clock survelliance by the media hoping to take some incriminating pixs of his personal life. Honestly dun understand what they hope to find. Sometimes I think one of the reasons why he is so reluctant to hold concerts in US esp LA is that he fears losing more privacy. Imagine walking down a street in LA where there might be posters advertising his concert & being recognised? LA is his sanctuary where he can live a normal life.
There is some talk that his concert tickets esp 9/26 is slow selling but so what. Why it is so important that concerts should raked in the most money & be sold out within a few days? Does that mean that concerts of talented but less packaged & therefore less popular singers are not worthy cos they are not so well-attended & make less money? Cheer Chen got 5 encores in Singapore although that concert was neither huge nor sold out. A friend told me abt a Wubai concert where they didn't want to let him offstage till he had to coax them to leave by singing 'go home, go home, go home' *__* That concert was also not huge, abt 3000 ppl but it was certainly memorable for both audience & singer. Like Rain/Bi holding his concert in Shanghai this mth chose the smaller Hongkou Stadium than the monstrous Shanghai Stadium. Previously his management would chose the biggest venue like the disastrous Sydney concert perhaps to proclaim his growing international status. But then Rain sings in Korean & while a lot of Chinese may support & like him, they may not be so eager to attend a concert where they dun even know what he is singing.
Actually I respect him for bouncing back from his ruined world tour & being realistic abt his concert. Main thing is to show his sincerity like DT & let his fans know he is holding the concert for them not some hyped up promo abt how big & international he is. Could be the reason for messup of his world tour cos he is nowhere as big as his publicist want us to believe. Besides the undisputedly king of concerts has already been revealed -- Rolling Stones ^__^
