F.T. Island Announce Two U.S. Concerts for Early 2015
The K-pop/rock group will hit the East and West Coast.
American K-pop fans will get the chance to see to see F.T. Island very early in the new year, as the group has announced two U.S. shows for late January marking the States’ first Korean concerts of 2015.
Extending their 2015 FTISLAND [FTHX] Tour, the band announced on Facebook that they are “happy to be able to show you great concerts in NY and LA in January, 2015” — the latter city marking the quintet’s first performance since March 2012.
Since that their last stateside shows, F.T. Island has dropped their full-length album Five Treasure Box, two EPs and a “personal” compilation album, All About.
“I Wish,” the samba-inspired lead single off Five Treasure Box, was as one of Billboard‘s best K-pop songs of 2012.
The band has also teased new music for April 2015, so there’s a chance attendees might hear fresh material.
The concert announcement jumps ahead of boy band Topp Dogg’s February showcases as the first K-pop concerts of the year. In 2014, FT Island’s FNC Entertainment labelmates CNBLUE also played New York and Los Angeles in January.
Ticket prices range from $50 to $120 with the latter including a “high touch” event where fans can meet the band by giving them a high five. Tickets can be bought via Powerhouse or AXS.
2015 FTISLAND [FTHX] Tour U.S. Dates:
