After wrapping up the Shakira tour at the end of 2011, I jumped directly onto the tour of a friend of mine named Leehom Wang. He’s a Taiwanese artist who is quite popular throughout Asia. With Shakira’s group, we’d normally tour the U.S., South America, and Europe, so it’s been a very fun experience visiting cities such as Shanghai, Taipei, Beijing, Kuala Lumpur, Wuhan, Singapore, and Hong Kong.

The band and musical director are great. Leehom’s music is a mix of R&B, rock, dance, and pop ballads. And most importantly, the food has been delicious—and we definitely eat a lot! Here are a few recent photos from our travels.
