2NE1, Japan Debut Concert – 70,000 Tickets Sold On The Same Day
South Korean 4-member dance and vocal girl group 2NE1‘s Japan debut tour starts on the 19th. It has been revealed that they have received 300,000 in total application for the 5 days concert.
Last year Kpop became popular in Japan. In debut Live Platinum tickets, Shoujo Jidai (SNSD) and 2PM got 25,000, while SHINEE received 30,000 applications. In South Korean Debut live, 2NE1 got the most tickets being sold with 70,000, but they were able to receive 300,00 applications. On the 4th was the first day of sales, and it was immediately sold out on the same day. An official said “We added one more show on the Yokohama arena because it exceeded our expectations”
Their first guesting on Music Station may have affected the sales. September 21 is the release date of their debut Mini album “NOLZA” (in Korean it means “Lets play“) which includes I AM THE BEST, that shows bizarre costumes and hairstyle. They sing: “Watashi ga ichiban iketeru ore tenjou tenge yui ga dokuson” which leaves a strong impact.
2NE1 members said, “When we heard that many applied for our first debut Japan tour, each and every one of us were surprised, and said, everyone, lets play! Please enjoy (the concert) and we cant wait to see all of you!“ In South Korea they were able to receive 34 awards. Their first concert will start in September 19th, in Yokohama Arena.
