[News] Kim Bum Soo confirms dates for his first US concert

On Jan. 2, singer Kim Bum Soo’ agency, Polaris Entertainment, confirmed the dates for Kim’s upcoming concerts in the United States.
The “Get Alright Show - I am Kim Bum Soo” kicked off in Korea in August 2011 and Kim performed for audiences in Seoul, Busan, Incheon and other surrounding regions.

The show will continue on overseas at two U.S. locations in Hawaii and Los Angeles. Although the venue for the Hawaii concert has yet to be decided, the 32-year-old solo artists’ Los Angeles performance will take place at the Nokia Theater. The venue is a large-scale concert hall that has a seating capacity of 7,000. “This is a tremendous achievement for the singer both at a professional and personal level,” Kim’s agency said.

The agency also added that since appearing on the singing survival show “I Am a Singer,” Kim has been inundated with offers to perform in the United States by production companies there.

During his concert tour in the United States, Kim will sing songs that he showcased on the hit singing survival show as well as songs from his previous albums.

Kim made his debut in 1999 and up until appearing on “I Am a Singer” was relatively unknown due to his appearance, which many regarded as being too unattractive for an entertainer.
