Kpop which has become a global trend in 2011 will be invading the central of pop culture, New York.
SNSD, Super Junior, TVXQ and other SM Entertainment artistes will be joining hands to perform at the SM Town Live World Tour in Madison Square Garden in New York, USA on October 23rd.
Before flying off to New York to captivate 15,000 Kpop fans in Madison Square Garden, SM artistes are scheduled to perform a 3-day concert at Tokyo Dome from September 2nd to 4th, in front of 150,000 fans for the Tokyo leg of the SM Town Live World Tour.
on August 31st, a representative of SM Entertainment said, “With the concert to be held in Madison Square Garden which is recognized as America’s most prestigious concert venue, SM’s global brand power is once again proven”. Madison Square Garden had previously hosted performances by internationally-known pop stars such as Michael Jackson, Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, etc. It is also known as the home for the NBA professional basketball team, New York Knicks.
SM Town Live in Tokyo Concert is getting explosive response from Japanese fans.
On January 21st, a representative of SM Entertainment said, “Since December 8th, 2010 to January 7th which was the deadline for ticket purchase applications through mobile sites, more than 400,000 applications were received”.
In order to purchase a ticket to the concert, one must submit their application through mobile sites first. Only lucky applicants who were picked from lucky draws will get the chance to purchase the tickets.
Besides the fact that the concert received more than 400,000 applications is a rather unusual phenomenon, it also proves that the concert is getting great interest among Japanese fans.
SM Town artists who will be performing at this concert such as SNSD, BoA, TVXQ, SHINee, Super Junior, etc will be showcasing their hit songs as well as Japanese version of their songs, especially for the Japanese fans.
SM Town Live in Tokyo Concert will take place on January 25th and 26th at the National Yoyogi Stadium in Tokyo.
This is probably the sentence that got people all hyped up for the past an hour or so. Singapore’s U-Weekly magazine published an article that garnered much attention from fans of SM Town artists (SNSD, Super Junior, f(x), BoA, Trax, SHINee,etc). Here it is:
The article basically says this:
Besides confirming Super Junior’s Super Show 3 which will take place in January next year, local (Singapore) concert organizer, R.I.T.S are in talks with SM Entertainment to bring the SM Town Live 10 Concert to Singapore.
Interesting? It sure is, but do keep in mind that it’s not confirmed yet. At least there’s something to hope for. If it happens, then it will be another good news for South East Asian fans.

However, contrary to what was published by Singapore’s magazine, U-Weekly, R.I.T.S (Running Into The Sun) confirmed that they have no involvement with SM Town via their Twitter http://twitter.com/sgRITS.
