After years of silent envy, East Coast K-pop fans finally caught a break with the crazy amount of K-pop concerts in the fall of 2011. But now it’s the West Coast’s time once again, and in a big way.
SM Entertainment’s stable of huge artists like Girls’ Generation, Super Junior, and TVXQ will be traveling to Los Angeles, California for a second time after their first appearance back in 2010. While the Hollywood Bowl and Staples Center get most of the attention from K-pop artists in SoCal, the venue this time around will be the Honda Center.
LA will be only the first stop of many for the tour which kicks off on May 20. The tour is also set to go to Tokyo, Seoul, Beijing, and various other Asian venues.
Speculation as to whether EXO will be at the concert in LA is all over the place, but there hasn’t been any official word as to the lineup of artists set to attend. The LA concert is also to be held jointly with MBC, with a broadcast titled “MBC Korean Music Wave in LA-SMTOWN SPECIAL!” to air sometime after the concert.
Tickets go on sale April 5, so be sure to get yours as soon as possible! Stay tuned for lineup details!
