SMTOWN Successfully Completes Concert in Beijing
After touching upon Seoul, LA, Paris, New York, Tokyo, and Shanghai, SMTOWN Live landed in Beijing and had the crowd roaring like crazy.
On October 19, the SMTOWN Live World Tour III in Beijing took place at the Bird′s Nest with the total of 10 artists teams, Kangta, BoA, TVXQ, Super Junior, Girls’ Generation, SHINee, f(x), EXO, Jang Li Yin, and Tasty, present and ready to make the crowd go crazy.
Each team showcased their hit songs as well as collaborations with each other, performing 49 songs with 70,000 people in the audience. With 46 artists, 16 dancers, 190 staff members, a total of 252 people from Korea landed in Beijing for this large-scale event.
Not only that, the event called for 10,000 people from the military police force, 6,000 professional body guards, and 2,000 volunteers to secure that the event would run smoothly without an issue. The massive event brought in a lot of attention as it was the first time in history to use 18,000 people for security at the Bird′s Nest.
In addition to this, the operation hours for public transportation were extended for the concert goers until 11 PM at night.
This was the first SMTOWN LIVE concert to be held in Beijing, and also the first time foreign artists performed at the Bird Nest, which was built for the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Having performed in Paris and New York’s Madison Square Garden, and now Beijing’s Bird′s Nest, SMTOWN LiVE is writing history while showing off the SM Global brand power.
Meanwhile, SMTOWN Live will hold the SMTOWN Live World Tour III in Tokyo Special Edition on October 26 and 27.
