TVXQ, 2PM, MBLAQ, U-KISS, T-ARA, and others to perform for charity concert in Osaka
It seems that through the tragedy of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami disaster, Korean artists have been putting their best foot, or in this case, voices forward and combining their efforts to participate in charity concerts around the world. In particular, the recent appearance of JYP, the WonderGirls, and Kwon Sangwoo at Hong Kong’s “Artistes 311 Love Beyond Borders” on April 1st,Thailand’s upcoming “Kpop Charity Concert” on April 21st, andTokyo’s “Legend 2011 Korean Music Wave Live” on May 14th. JYJ have also announced a charity concert at Saitama Super Arena on June 7th, but as the arena management have revoked JYJ’s permit to perform, it is uncertain whether this will go ahead.
Another charity concert has been announced – the “Seoul-Osaka Music for Heart 2011” has been organised to raise money for the Tohoku Earthquake Charity and will be featuring eight to ten artists from Korea, Japan, and other parts of Asia. Korean artists named to be performing include TVXQ, 2PM, MBLAQ, U-KISS, and T-ARA.
The concert is scheduled for June 6th at Kyocera Dome in Osaka. All tickets are 9,500 Japanese Yen and pre-sales for KJ-net members will begin on April 20th at noon. General ticket sales will be open on May 22nd.
