Most of my readers should be familiar with YB by now, since I already did a K-RoK 101 session on them. But in case you need more YB info (who doesn't!) here is an additional bio:
YB is the most popular rock band in Korea, having sold over 2 million albums and headlining all the major Korean music festivals. Since 2005 they have been sharing their music with the world. The world has shown their love and support for the band by helping them set milestones for Korean music, whether being the first Korean artist (K-Pop or otherwise) to tour Europe in 2005, or being the first to sell out a legendary New York City club(BB Kings Blues Club) in 2006. Then they were the first Korean band to grace the SXSW stages in 2007 (then back again in 2008), followed by another first - joining the Vans Warped Tour in 2009.
To date they have released 9 full-length studio albums, and a mixture of another dozen side projects, mini-albums, live albums and DVD releases. Not to mention they've kept busy on TV and on stage. In 2011 they participated in season 1 of I Am A Singer, and it helped them re-connect with their audience every week on television.
This year, YB is coming back to share their special blend of Korean music and classic rock with us. Not only are they returning to SXSW in Austin they have two headlining dates as well.
The first concert date is March 7th, in Dallas, Texas at the Majestic Theater. Show starts at 7:30 and tickets are on sale now through Mandoo Ent. over at Prekindle.
Ticket prices are as follows:
- E Section Seating: $50
- D Section Seating: $80
- C Section Seating: $100
- B Section Seating: $120
- A Section Seating: $150
- V.I.P Seating: $200
(if I wasn't already attending SXSW this year, you can bet I'd be at one of these shows in the VIP section, it would be so worth it!)
The second show is in Atlanta on Saturday, March 8th. Show is 7:30- 9:30. At this time ticket information is unavailable for this show, but trust that as soon as it is released, I'll let you all know.
