[NEWS] 110323 SM Town’s Tokyo Dome concert has been postponed

The “SM TOWN LIVE in Tokyo Special Edition” concert has been postponed due to the disasters which struck Japan on March 11th.

The concerts were supposed to be held on April 9th and 10th, but it was agreed that holding the event would not be particularly appropriate during this time.

SM Entertainment stated that as soon as they find a suitable alternative date, they would announce them for their fans. It’s safe to assume that the concert-goers, who are likely disappointed at the news, are also feeling a little relieved, as it would be difficult to celebrate and have fun during this difficult time.

The SM family extended their prayers for the victims, and expressed hope that Japan would be able recover quickly.

[Info] How much did SM Town Tokyo 2010 earn?

SM Entertainment is in the midst of holding its 2010-2011 world concert series “SM Town 2010“, which brings together the company’s biggest stars in an enormous kpop extravaganza.  The sheer number of performers at these concerts is tough to beat, with appearances from the likes of TVXQSHINeeSNSD/Girls’ GenerationBoAf(x)Super Junior, and others.  Last year, they held concerts in SeoulLos Angeles, Shanghai, and most recently Tokyo from January 25-26th.

In fact, the SM Town concert in Tokyo was such a resounding success that they’ve just announced that they’ll be holding an encore concert April 9th-10th in the Tokyo Dome to accomodate those fans who weren’t able to make it the first time around.

Just how much of a success was this latest concert, you ask?  Well, SM Town 2010 sold out the 12,000-seat National Yoyogi Stadium, and a source close to SM revealed that the company is estimating earnings in the ballpark of 300 million yen (which as of this writing, converts to 3.65 million U.S. dollars).  Tickets went as high as 12,800 yen (converts to 156 U.S. dollars).

And while that figure is nothing to sniff at, the April concerts at Tokyo Dome are expected to eclipse the profits from this concert, since the huge venue is several times larger than National Yoyogi Stadium, seating 55,000 people at maximum capacity (over 100,000 over 2 days).  The source expects that SM will earn or exceed profits of 1 billion yen (which converts to about 12 million U.S. dollars) from ticket and merchandise sales.

What do you think of SM’s enormous projected profits?

[News] “SM Town Live in Tokyo” adds two more concerts due to explosive popularity


The artists of SM Entertainment successfully completed their two-day “SM Town Live in Tokyo” concert amidst the cheers of 24,000 fans!

Although the concerts were held on weekdays this year, fans still experienced a fierce competition to grab tickets, as over 400,000 K-pop aficionados in Japan swarmed ticketing sites to purchase their seats. Those fans who weren’t able to nab tickets were seen hanging in groups outside the concert stadium, hoping to catch echoes of performances.

Because of the numerous amounts of fans who held up placards requesting for additional concert dates, SM Entertainment decided to go ahead and add two more concerts at the Tokyo Dome for April 9th and 10th.

The Tokyo Dome will be able to seat 50,000 fans.

Rewinding back to the “SM Town LIVE IN TOKYO” concerts (held on January 25th and 26th), the three-hour musical bonanza brought together Kang Ta, BoA, TVXQ, Super Junior, SNSD, SHINee, f(x), Trax’s Jung Mo, J-Min and many others.

Super Junior’s Yesung, Ryeowook, and SHINee’s Onew earned an especially explosive response from the audience for teaming up with a Japanese tenor artist, Masafumi Akikawa, to perform “Sen no Kaze ni Natte.”
