  Chinese rock singer-songwriter Wang Feng kicked off his latest tour, The Times Tour, at the National Stadium in Beijing on Sept 9.

  He performed more than 40 songs, including Flying Higher, Brave Heart and Blooming Life, at the three-hour show.

  The Times Tour, which Wang started working on after his last tour in 2015, combines futuristic elements, which offer audiences a walk between the virtual world and reality.

  Wang's actress wife, Zhang Ziyi, also attended the show.

  The 43-year-old Beijing native was introduced to music by his musician father, who put him through violin lessons at 5.

  Although he didn't like the instrument at first, he studied and graduated from the Central Conservatory of Beijing.

  At age 17, he started to listen to songs by Michael Jackson, the Beatles and Chinese rocker Cui Jian.

  In 1994, he formed a rock band, No 43 Baojia Street, along with his friends, and moved on to a solo career in 2000.

  Now, he is one of the best-selling rock musicians in the country.

  Wang will tour 30 cities across the Chinese mainland throughout 2017 and 2018.

  He will be in Changsha, in Hunan province, on Sept 23.
