JYJ (Jaejoong, Yoochun, Junsu) have moved their “JYJ World Tour Concert 2011” to the North American continent.
CEO Baek Chang Joo of JYJ’s management company C-JeS said that, “The North American continent leg of the World Tour will kick off in Vancouver, Canada’s Rogers Arena on the 20th at 8pm,” and expressed that “While performing in the US, JYJ will write a new chapter in history as Korean artistes.”
JYJ’s North American Tour was a collaboration with the world’s second largest artist management company AEG Live, which manages globally famous artistes such as Justin Timberlake, Beyonce and Usher.
The overall director for this concert is choreographer Jeri Slaughter, who has worked with stars like Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey and Jennifer Lopez.
The locations for this tour are large-scale concert halls which boast a capacity of over 7,000 and the tour is expected to become a stepping stone for JYJ, who will be performing 24 songs, of which many come from their ‘The Beginning’ album, towards making their mark as global artistes.
Kim Jaejoong and Kim Junsu participated in the press conference held at the Clive Davis Theater in the LA Live Entertainment Complex ahead of their Vancouver concert and thanked their fans as they said, “When we stand on stage, we feel a sense of comfort from our fans.”
JYJ also stated, “A different kind of challenge, that will give us an opportunity to prove our potential, will soon take place. We will give a performance that will be respected and recognized by the US, a country where a variety of cultures coexist.”
Vice President Susan Rosenbluth of ‘AEG Live’ did not hide her anticipation for the upcoming concerts as she said, “JYJ are one of Asia’s top groups and we see a lot of potential in them. Seeing them being loved by fans of different cultures, we can confidently believe that their music will have a positive influence around the world. We’re anticipating a great performance from JYJ.”
Also, with Vancouver as the starting point, JYJ will be in New Jersey on May 22nd, Los Angeles on May 27th, and San Jose on June 2nd to perform in these three cities. They will then perform in a charity concert in Japan on 7 June, with two more days of concerts on June 11th and 12th in Busan.
