TVXQ, SHINee, B2ST and More to Perform at Inaugural KPop Masters in Las Vegas
Some of K-Pop’s finest will descend on Sin City for the 2011 Billboard Korea KPOP Masters, a two-day concert event held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on November 25 and 26.
The event, which is being hosted by Billboard Magazine and MGM Grand, will feature performances by SHINee, TVXQ, B2ST, MBLAQ, Brown Eyed Girls, G.Na, 4minute and Sistar. Jabbawockeez, the season one winner of America’s Best Dance Crew, have also been confirmed as the special guest performer at the show. In addition to the confirmed lineup of performers, fans can expect celebrity guests to grace the red carpet and surprise performers to light up the stage.
Following the launch of Billboard’s K-Pop Hot 100 chart in August, the magazine has continued to show interest in the spread of K-Pop all over the world and the city of Las Vegas is no exception.
Mayor Carolyn G. Goodman proclaimed November 25, 2011 KPop Masters Day, and in a press release for the event, she was quoted as saying, “We have long been proud of the Korean entertainers who have performed in our city over the years. I welcome the events to Las Vegas, and I know they will be a great success.”
The venue, which has hosted iconic events like the Billboard Music Awards and the Ultimate Fighting Championship, as well as legendary artists Cher, Diana Ross and Pearl Jam, to name a few, seats 16,800 people.
If you have plans to be in the area, tickets for both shows are currently on sale on the event website and Ticketmaster.
