Tickets for the show were sold out in just a few days in spite of the high ticket price which is a little more than ¥10,000. Because of the high demand, Chinese security police imposed a sales regulation for tickets. Also, the media dubbed her as the “Madonna of Asia”. Dozens of media representatives came not only from Shanghai but also Beijing,  Guangzhou and Hong Kong.
