SINGAPORE: Korean girl group SNSD's upcoming S$1.8 million Singapore concert has pipped Shinee's S$1.7 million concert here, to become the most expensive concert staged in Singapore by a single K-pop act so far, said concert organisers Running Into The Sun (RITS) and Conceptual.
RITS revealed in a statement that SNSD's performance here will have all the bells and whistles of a large-scale K-pop concert and then some -- it will feature the standard massive LED screens and lasers as well as new elements like trapezes and two custom-built stages with three walkways between them.
The girls will move about on the walkways over the course of the three-hour show, allowing a little over 2000 concert-goers in the three mosh pits to see them up close, essentially making the mosh pits the place to be for hardcore SNSD fans.
Recent news that the nine-member girl group had brought forward their first solo concert in Singapore to December 9 had left their fans here in a tizzy, and sparked intense speculation over when ticket sales will begin and how much they will cost.
RITS said a total of 5500 tickets priced at S$168 and S$218 are available for sale.
Samsung customers and OCBC cardholders can get their tickets from October 29 while the public will have to wait till November 1 to purchase their tickets.
