C.N. Blue and F.T. Island will hold a joint concert in Los Angeles!
Through CJ E&M‘s K-Pop concert brand, “M-Live,” C.N. Blue and F.T. Island will hold their joint concert at the Nokia Theater on March 9 at 8pm.
This is the first time that C.N. Blue and F.T. Island will hold a joint concert together, therefore, the expectations are very high.
The Nokia Theater, where famous artists like Lady Gaga, Kelly Clarkson, the Eagles, and Duran Duran, have performed, holds more than 7,000 seats, which will be filled with thousands of C.N. Blue and F.T. Island fans.
As two of the most well-known K-Pop artists out there, this concert can be looked forward to.
In 2007, F.T. Island was one of the first rock bands to debut in the music industry and was soon able to claim the #1 position on various music charts, nicknamed as the “Rookie Monster.” After landing first place on the Japanese Oricon Chart and ranking #1 on music charts in several countries in Asia, F.T. Island became known as one of the top Asian artists in the world.
Even before their official debut in Korea, C.N. Blue held more than 100 concerts in Japan. Within five days after the release of their first album, they were able to claim the #1 spot on both music charts and album sales. Furthermore, C.N. Blue was able to make their name as one of the best-known artists through their Asia Tour. After selling more than 10,000 copies of their Japanese debut album, C.N. Blue was able to be recognized at the Golden Disk Awards, as well.
Not only are the two groups skilled in music, they’ve shown their various talents through dramas and movies, and their roles as MCs on music programs.
C.N. Blue and F.T. Island’s label FNC Music revealed, “Starting off with this concert in L.A, we plan to look more closely at their overseas expansions into Europe. We hope to show a good concert for the K-Pop fans.”
“Depending on how this concert turns out, we will start to actively support their expansions overseas,” promised CJ E&M.
