120503 [NEWS] Google Headquarters to Host a Private K-Pop Concert in California on May 21st

Source: Koreaboo

 

SM Entertainment artists including Girls’ Generation, TVXQ, Super Junior, will join KARA, SISTAR, MBLAQ, BEAST, Wonder Girls and other top K-POP stars to perform at Google’s office in San Francisco on May 21st, at 6PM (local time). The performances will be broadcast via MBC and Google’s Youtube channel.

This is the first time an overseas performance will be broadcast not just through a local station, but also through a global portal site. It is also the first time that K-Pop performances at Google will be broadcasted through the internet. From this it is clear that K-Pop has become a global phenomenon.

A local representative from the event commented, “When news that Korean singers will be performing at Google’s head office broke, even the concert organisers got excited. Fans who attend Korean singers’ concerts are usually American-Koreans, but this time the Google performance will be targeted at local American pop fans. This proves the global appeal of Korean singers.”

He added, “This will greatly increase the demand for concerts in America.” The event will be invite only for those that are Google employees.

    I am a bit annoyed that this is literally about 30 minutes from me, and I can’t go because I don’t work for Google. Guess I’ll just keep my eyes peeled…maybe I’ll spot them out and about, lol.
    On the plus side, the increase in concerts here tells me that J-Tune (and these concert sponsors) sees MBLAQ as a group that could crack the United States. This is very encouraging for us A+ in the States. Could a mini tour be far behind? *crosses fingers*
