Trailblazing K-pop girl group 2NE1, consisting CL, Dara, Bom and Minzy, will be making a stop in Malaysia for their 2NE1 Global Tour 2012 - New Evolution concert on December 8, 8.30pm at Stadium Melawati.
2NE1 has achieved much through embarking on their Global Tour, distinguishing themselves as the first Korean girl group to hold a world tour. Known for their edgy music and unique fashion style, 2NE1 have collaborated with world-renowned artists such as The Black Eyed Peas, will.i.am, and fashion designer, Jeremy Scott, and gained recognition for their immense talent and influence by snagging MTV Iggy’s “Best New Band in the World” award in 2011.
Bringing an epic, world-class performance, the tour sees the coming together of a dream team to help create the “New Evolution” tour: Four-time winner of the MTV Video Music Award for Best Choreography, Travis Payne, will be fronting production and choreography, Divinity Roxx (musical director and bassist for Beyonce’s World Tour), will lead the band following 2NE1 on tour, Michael Cotten (production design for the Olympic Games and Michael Jackson’s “This Is It” tour) will be staging a breath-taking production and stylist Jeremy Scott (Madonna, Lady Gaga) will head costume design.
Beatrice Chia Richmond, Creative Director of concert organizer, Running Into The Sun, said, “2NE1 has established themselves at the forefront of K-pop girl groups, and we’re hugely excited to be bringing them to Malaysia for their first-ever concert here. It’s going to be a sensational feast for the senses, and fans will be treated to an awesome night of visually-stunning performances. We hope that by bringing in big acts such as 2NE1, the music scene in Asia will continue to be elevated to greater heights.”
Tickets to the concert will be available from October 27, 2012, with more ticketing details due to be released next week.
