FT Island and CN Blue to Hold a Joint Concert in LA
FT Island and CN Blue will be holding a concert in LA with the help of a giant American entertainment company.
AEG will be supporting FT Island’s and CN Blue’s live concert to be held on March 9 in LA’s Nokia Theatre, a 5,000 seat venue.
The concert was made possible when AEG agreed to co-produce a concert that CJ E&M’s global concert brand M-Live had planned. It will be the first overseas Korean concert to bring in the participation of a global entertainment group.
AEG is one of the biggest entertainment groups in America, even owning branches in Europe and China. It boasts access to more than 100 concert venues and manages approximately 55 sports teams. It produces more than 6,200 projects every year in sports and live entertainment such as America’s biggest rock festival in Coachella and concerts for Bon Jovi, Justin Timberlake and Usher.
For the M-Live LA concert, AEG provided the Nokia Theatre and took charge of overseas promotions through its global network. Thanks to this support, ticket sales for the FT Island and CN Blue concert are thriving among local American fans. The concert is expected to earn a profit exclusively through ticket sales without sponsor support.
A rep from CJ E&M’s M-Live said, “Many Korean agencies have complained about the lack of local information and trustworthy partners. Succeeding in bringing in a large overseas group for the first time in Korea will make the world look on K-Pop with a new eye and also bring up the quality of its concerts.”
