除了巡演外,周杰倫正在籌備明年的新專輯,「不然真的離金曲獎太遙遠,讓大家覺得我有在寫歌,不是只有在玩」他說道。

Asked about his latest plans, Chou explained that he was preparing for the next album while traveling around the world, promising to return to the Golden Melody Awards, an honor awarded by the Ministry of Culture of Taiwan each June.

周杰倫出道20週年的世界巡迴演唱會「嘉年華」於十月十六日在上海開唱。

周杰倫透露預計明年下半年「嘉年華」巡演回到台北,凡事要求完美的他,回到家鄉給自己的壓力遠大於其他城市,由於場地天數還沒安排好,詳情有待唱片公司宣布。

Contrary to all expectations, he said that the Taipei concerts haven’t been scheduled yet, because the arrangements of the venue and dates are still pending. Also, he acknowledged some pressure on performing in his hometown.
