Rain, Big Bang among top K-pop stars to perform in Singapore this year

SINGAPORE: Korean superstar Rain will perform in Singapore on May 22 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium as part of his "The Best" 2011 Rain Asia Tour.

According to concert promoter Faith and D Entertainment, ticketing details for his concert will be announced at a later date.

Rain, who is best known for his slick dance moves and extravagant stage sets, last performed in Singapore in 2007.

Although tickets to his previous concert cost between S$188 and S$888, they were sold out anyway, sparking concerns among his fans here that tickets to his upcoming concert might well cost even more.

Other popular Korean acts like boy band Big Bang and girl group 2NE1 will also be making their way to Singapore for the Korean Music Wave 2011 concert on July 15, at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

Organised by local events firm Proof Label, the concert will feature five other groups of performers whose identity will be revealed at a later date.

Proof Label previously organised the Korean Pop Night Concert 2010, which saw K-pop bands like SHINee, FT Island, Girl's Generation as well as Big Bang perform to sell-out crowds in Singapore last year.
