On April 11, SM Entertainment confirmed SMTOWN LIVE Concert will be held at Seoul World Cup Stadium on July 8th. This will be the first SMTOWN concert held in Korea in 3 years after holding a two-stop tour in Japan in the summer of 2016.
The SM concerts 'SMTOWN LIVE' began in 2008 and has successfully held shows in the world's biggest cities such as in New York, LA, Paris, Tokyo or Beijing. In 2011, the SMTOWN tour broke the record for being the first South Korean concert in Paris, France that sold out in 15 minutes.
SMTOWN showcases not only group or individual stages but also collaborations unique to these concerts. In 2014, SMTOWN LIVE in Seoul Tour brought together 75 artists such as BOA, f(x), SNSD, Red Velvet, EXO, SHINee, Super Junior, TVXQ, SM Rookies, Lee Dong Woo or J-Min, in a concert of over 5 hours.
This year's lineup hasn't been revealed yet. Expectations are high as TVXQ's Yunho is being discharged from the army on April 20th and expected to make a return on the stage, joining SM's youngest group NCT.
