Cho Yong-pil marks 40th anniversary
Date: April 16, 2008
Cho Young-pil (58) is holding the “The History – The Leopard of Kilimanjaro” concert to celebrate his 40th anniversary as a successful singer. Cho will tour 22 cities around the nation with his band “The Great Birth” and visit New York and Los Angeles as part of his tour.
According to Lee Jong-il, the producer of the concert, the performance will be more
“concentrated”. “If the previous concerts were like a buffet (with many different features), we are going for a more specialized restaurant experience. It will be all about Cho, his band and their songs,” Lee said.
But still the concert will have eye-catching features with the help of technology and stage art.
At the press conference announcing the concert, Cho also said his thanks to his fans. He mentioned: “The future seems a long way off, but when I look back to my past, it seems so short. I cannot believe I have been in the music industry for so long. We all went through difficult times, and if not for my fans, I would not have made it to this day”.
The first concert of the tour will start on May 24 in Seoul and then move on to other cities like Daejeon, Daegu, Incheon and Busan throughout the year and Cho will be the first Asian artist to perform at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles and the Radio City Music Hall in New
York in August.
