Jolin Tsai will be celebrating the Chinese New Year with her fans in Mohegan Sun Arena.  The show will feature two performances on Sunday, February 8th; the first at 2:00am and the second at 2:00pm with special guest Energy.

Tsai is a Golden Melody Award-winning Taiwanese singer, actress and dancer. She was discovered through a singing competition at the age of eighteen and later signed with Universal Music and released her debut album Jolin 1019 in 1999.  The album was a success and made her an instant star in Taiwan.   

She released the single “Spirit Of The Knight” with Sony Music in 2002, which became a big hit and led to the highly-anticipated release of her album Magic.  The album showcased a more playful and sexy image of Tsai and her music became more dance-oriented.   The album has sold over a million copies in Asia.   The Chinese media refers to Tsai as “Dancing Diva” after her album of the same name as well as her performance at the 2006 MTV Asia Awards, which featured yoga elements and props such as a ball and a ribbon.  Recently, Tsai incorporated new skills into her concerts such as flying rings and pole dancing in addition to her usual multi-style dances.  Fans can expect to see these new dances in her upcoming concert at Mohegan Sun.
