Jackie Chan in the Bird's Nest
You probably know Jackie Chan from action films such as Rush Hour and Rumble in the Bronx. But in his homeland of China, Jackie is more than just the funny little man at the butt of Chris Tucker's jokes. He's a massive star, as close to royalty as the communist country allows. So it's only fitting that he makes history as the first one to sing on China's most coveted stage: the "Bird's Nest" Olympic Stadium in Beijing (yes, he sings, too). Along with Chan, the concert will feature popular Asian acts like his son Jaycee and a Korean boy band called Super Junior. What? You've never heard of them?
And there's more! According to Starpulse, the concert will aptly be called "Descendants of the Dragon: Jackie Chan and Friends." It will take place during China's May Day holiday, May 1-3. Check out JackieChan.com for details on tickets and schedule.
As if that wasn't enough Jackie for ya, here's more: Chan has donated one of his historic houses in Shanghai to the government, which will turn it into a museum to open in October. It will be dedicated to . . . who else? Jackie Chan, of course! Shanghai seems like an odd choice considering Chan was born in Hong Kong. But a little birdie tells us that a museum in the port city is already in the works. Rest easy, Hong Kong, your native son won't let you down.
