The singer and actress Li Yuchun has begun her 2012 world tour, named Crazy World, in Beijing.
Traveling from Beijing to Shanghai, Guangzhou and London, the 28-year-old will demonstrate how she has gone from being the winner of an amateur singing competition to a professional musician.
Since 2006, Li has recorded four studio albums and has tried out incorporating elements of various music genres, such as electronica, jazz and rock, into her music.
Apart from music, her style of dress is to be another attraction in the world tour. When she met the French stylist Jean Paul Gaultier at his Beijing show in May 2012, she invited him to design clothes for her 2012 world tour. He exceeded her expectations and designed six costumes within a short time. Those have helped Li give the lie to the idea that she is a tomboy.
The first stop in Li’s world tour will take place on Aug 26 at Beijing’s Mastercard Center, the former Wukesong Arena.
