K-pop stars premieres in Las Vegas on Thanksgiving weekend

Following the success of the Korean pop concert held in Paris in June, another ground-breaking K-pop concert is set to take place during the upcoming Thanksgiving weekend in Las Vegas, the city known as the Entertainment Capital of the World.

Korean pop stars gaining popularity throughout North America will perform at the MGM Grand Garden Arena for the inaugural 2011 Billboard K-Pop Masters concert hosted by Billboard Korea. Billboard Korea recently announced its sizzling lineup for the first concert of its kind to showcase talent from this internationally growing genre of music. The concert will feature established artists as well as the young faces that the K-pop music scene has to offer including TVXQ, BEAST, SHINee, 4minute, Sistar, Brown Eyed Girls, and more.

The 2011 Billboard K-Pop Masters, presented by MGM Grand, will take place on November 25 and 26, in time for the Thanksgiving weekend rush at the reputed MGM Grand Garden Arena. It is the first time that Korean artists will perform on the stage of this renowned theater. The arena, which seats over 16,000 people, has hosted the 2011 Billboard Music Awards and also innumerable concerts featuring legendary names including Madonna and Elton John.

Richard Sturm, president of MGM Grand Entertainment and Sports, Inc., said, “MGM Resorts is proud to continue its ongoing partnership with Billboard as we present the 2011 Billboard K-Pop Masters in November at MGM Grand. This event will feature some of today’s brightest stars in the Korean music industry and we’re looking forward to showcasing their international talents, and the future of K-pop music, to the fans here in Las Vegas”.

The concert will be an occasion for a sampling of the full awards show slated for next year — the Billboard KPOP Masters Awards. The showcase also celebrates the long-awaited debut of the K-Pop Hot 100 Chart of Billboard Korea (www.billboard.co.kr) on August 25, and aims to further expand global awareness of K-pop.

“We are thrilled to work with our partners at Billboard Korea to gather some of the very best K-pop performers for this historic concert”, said Howard Appelbaum, president of brand development at Prometheus Global Media, the parent company of Billboard. “This concert will demonstrate the universal appeal of K-Pop, one of the world’s fast growing music genres”.

Ticket prices range between 75 and 300 US dollars. Online sales will start on November 7 at 10 a.m. (local time). This is concert not to be missed if you are drawn to K-pop and enjoy singing along with its catchy tunes, with your favorite Korean bands performing in front of you.
