Justin Bieber's World Tour in Beijing 2013

AEG Live Asia are thrilled to announce the arrival of cultural phenomenon Justin Bieber and his Believe Tour in Beijing on September 29th. Performing live at Beijing’s MasterCard Center, Bieber is set to deliver what is sure to be an exhilarating one-night-only concert experience.
 
A true prodigy, Justin Bieber began his journey to superstardom at the age of 12, after posting a video clip of himself covering songs by Usher, Ne-Yo, and Stevie Wonder on YouTube. Over 10 million views later, Bieber found himself signed to Island Records and released his debut album, My World, at just 15 years of age. He has proven to be an unstoppable force ever since and shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
 
Justin Bieber has again rewritten history. With January’s #1 debut of Believe Acoustic, Bieber has become the first-ever artist to earn five #1 albums before his 19th birthday! Believe Acoustic debuted #1 on SoundScan, with first week sales totaling 211,000 units, and was also #1 on iTunes in more than 60 countries. Separately, this accomplishment makes Bieber just the 10th act to achieve a #1 album in four consecutive years. He joins A-listers Jay-Z (7 years), the Beatles (6 years), and Paul McCartney/ Wings (5 years) in holding that rare distinction.
 
With worldwide album sales in excess of 15 million units, Bieber has dominated pop culture and social media—more than 43 million Facebook fans and over 40 million Twitter followers. And, having accrued 3 billion YouTube views, Justin Bieber is far and away the most popular YouTube artist of all time. With those numbers in the bank, Bieber was a lock for 2012 Social Artist of the Year as bestowed by the Billboard Music Awards. In 2013, Bieber was honored with three more Billboard Awards: Top Male Artist; Top Social Artist; Billboard’s first-ever Milestone Award, selected by fans for musical innovation and ingenuity!

A Decade of Connecting Alumni from Canada in China

March 18, 2013

Beijing - Celebrating the start of it’s 10th year, the Canadian Alumni Network (CAN) welcomed 150 fellow alumni of all walks of life to The Annual Canadian Alumni Network Spring Cocktail in Beijing at The Four Seasons Hotel Beijing.

The CAN's Founder, Richard N. Liu said, “As an UBC Alumni, I'm proud of the quality of education received, but an even prouder Canadian to have been given the opportunity to nurture the growth and awareness of our alumni in China.” This rang true by the many alumni who had graduated from across Canada, and gathered under one roof tonight to network with alumni from their respective provinces and business sectors. Among one of the special guests, Dr. James Lee, Vice-Provost (International) of Queens University, engaged many Queens Alumni, and noted that Queen's largest number of international undergraduate students come from China.

During the evening’s proceedings, a special plaque was presented to Canadian Ambassador, Mr. Guy Saint-Jacques, to recognize His Excellency as the CAN's Honourary Chair. Ambassador Saint-Jacques congratulated Mr. Liu and his fellow volunteer Alumni Representatives for all their work in bringing the alumni closer together, and said, “The number of Chinese students studying in Canada is now at over 70,000 representing about 30% of all the international students in Canada. Given education is one of Canada’s core strengths; it is very satisfying to see the value of Canadian education recognized in China and around the world.”

The Canadian Alumni networked with fellow alumni and enjoyed the food, drinks and prizes generously provided by the Four Seasons Hotel Beijing. Two very lucky alumni, Ms. Lucy Li (UoT Alumni) and Mr. Chen Zhang (Beijing’s Concordia Alumni President) won a pair of free tickets each to the Simple Plan Concert the following weekend, which was donated by McGill Alumni, Justin Cancino, of Street Hustle Media Group. Special thanks to our friends at the Canadian Embassy in Beijing; and to fellow Canadians, Mr. Sanjiv Hulugalle, General Manager of the Four Seasons Hotel Beijing; and Chef Rosalyn Ediger, a proud South Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT) alumni.

Stay connected with the CAN as there will be more opportunities to network in the coming months.
