Tickets for SHINee’s Japanese tour are coming and going

SHINee’s popularity in Japan has been tested and proven yet again with the band’s Japanese tour selling out concerts within minutes.

The tour, which is set to kick off tomorrow, originally included a total of 14 performances. But with all the tickets selling out the instant they are put on sale, six more shows have been added to the tour of seven cities across Japan.

These additional concerts again sold out within minutes. SHINee has added more seats to the venues to meet demand, although many are classified as “restricted seating,” where obstacles may block a full view of the stage. These tickets have now all sold out as well.

SHINee’s tour will make stops in Fukuoka, Sapporo, Nagoya, Osaka, Kobe, Tokyo and Hiroshima and will entertain a total of 250,000 fans.

Ticket sales are estimated to bring in around 30.7 billion won ($26.9 million) for the Korean boy band.

The band will also release a Japanese version of “Sherlock” as a single album on May 16.

Every Saturday, between April 18 and May 30, a performance will be held at the tomb of King Sejong (1397-1450) in Yeoju, Gyeonggi.

On May 30, the performance will take place at night. . ... Read more

BTS talk about the most beautiful moment in their life through "HwaYangYeonHwa" tracklist

BTS has released their long-awaited tracklist for “HwaYangYeonHwa Pt. 1“!
Even though the release is a mini album, the boys, as always, are packing it full with 9 tracks, none of which are instrumentals. A lot of idol groups usually put 3-4 songs on a mini and add instrumentals to make it a 5-6 track album, but not BTS! The boys will be packing the mini with “Intro” (which we already heard), “I NEED U“, “Hold Me Tight“, “SKIT. Expectation!“, “Best“, “BTS Diss“, “Converse High“, “Move“, and “Outro. Love is Not Over“. The album comes in a pink and a white version, so the boys have released 2 differenlty colored tracklists. . ... Read more
