On July 2nd, 2012 at 8PM (GMT-8), four of Korea’s most popular hallyu groups, Girls’ Generation, SHINee, B.A.P, and U-KISS, will be coming together to perform at the “K-POP Nation Concert in Macao 2012”. The concert will be held at the Cotai Arena situated within the Venetian Hotel. The Cotai Arena is the venue known for hosting the Mnet Asian Music Awards back in 2010, and seats roughly 15,000 people. Many famous artists such as Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Celine Dion, Rain, Super Junior, and many more, have stood and performed on this stage, making it a “dream stage” for many artists around the world.

“K-POP Nation Concert in Macao 2012” is a unique concert that will not only showcase the powerful performances of each artist, but will also include stories that have never been shared before at any other concert.

Tickets for the “K-POP Nation Concert in Macao 2012” have been on sale since May 31st, and can be purchased via the Cotai Ticketing site. As with many other K-pop concerts, purchasing tickets has always been a difficult task due to the overwhelming amount of people who wish to attend the event.

DMB Media, the co-organizer of the concert, stated that although “the tickets were sold through an overseas website, both domestic and overseas fans made telephone inquiries and the service became paralyzed after the ticket sale opened.”

A representative from MBC Plus Media also revealed that they were “surprised by the domestic and overseas fans’ reactions. Driven by the support from fans, the stars are working hard to create great performances.”

With a month left until the concert date, tickets are selling out fast. For many fans who cannot attend the concert, Hong Kong’s Beneco Asia will be collaborating with Korea’s MBC Plus Media to do a re-run of all the concert footage after it is has been completed. Many channels in Asia, including Korea’s MBC Plus Media channel, China’s CCTV, and Hong Kong’s Now TV, will be broadcasting the performances, and fans will have the opportunity to relive the concert in the comforts of their own home.

By having some of Korea’s top artists to perform at the Cotai Arena, Beneco Asia believes it will help to promote the uniqueness of K-Pop as well as the Korean culture.
