Jay Chou’s nunchucks confiscated by Australian customs

Mandopop superstar Jay Chou wrapped up his Opus Jay World Tour concert in Sydney last Friday amid much fanfare. However, the singer and his entourage were reportedly detained by the Australian customs when he first arrived at the city, as one of their luggages contained 28 pairs of nunchucks.

The nunchucks, which are his staple stage props, were suspected to be “weapons” and confiscated by the authorities. To ensure the segment went on as planned, Jay sought assistance from the concert organiser to purchase new nunchucks for the show.

Although it was a tall order, the production team managed to buy new sets of nunchucks just before the show opened, with the help of local fans.

The Taiwanese multi-hyphenate will be staging his Opus II concert at the new National Stadium in Singapore on Nov 8.
