2011 MAMA Stage Unveiled
Now that we know who will be performing at tomorrow’s 2011 Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA), the MAMA organizers have unveiled the award show’s unique stage design.
The MAMA organizers recently released an image of the stage designed specifically for the 2011 MAMA, which will be held at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on November 29. The centerpieces of the stage are the three arches designed in the shape of the Chinese character for ‘human (人).’ According to a press released by MAMA organizers, the character embodies the award show’s theme of ‘Music Makes One’ and aim to bring Asians all around the world together through music. Other notable features of the stage are the two circular structures flanking the arches.
“The circular structures set up midair next to the both sides of the stage are design inspirations taken from the main theme of MAMA which represents a cultural network and integrated universe of Asia as a whole,” said MAMA organizers. “These stage design elements embody the true meaning behind MAMA bringing the world together as one through music.”
In addition to special performances by confirmed guests Black Eyed Peas members will.i.am and apl.de.ap as well as hip hop artists Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg, Chinese pianist Lang Lang will take the stage with Korean idol group B2ST for a special collaborative performance of Fiction.
The 2011 MAMA is expected to kick off at 5 p.m. KST with a red carpet event before the main event takes place at 7 p.m. KST. This year, the show will be broadcast in 20 different countries, reaching an unprecedented 1.9 viewers through live TV broadcasts, digital platforms like YouTube as well as via mobile devices.
