KCON 2015 adds Shinhwa to LA and VIXX to NY lineup + ticket info
There is reason to rejoice as KCON announces more of their concert artists! K-pop veterans Shinhwa have been added to the LA lineup alongside Super Junior, Block B, and AOA, while KCON veterans VIXX have been added to the NY lineup with Girls' Generation! Organizers also released ticketing information for both cities, and it includes all kinds of fun!
Coming to Los Angeles, the six-member group Shinhwa debuted in 1998 and is the longest-running boy band in Korean pop history. With a run like that, the fact that Shinhwa is the Korean word for legend is not a joke. The group recently dropped their 17th album We in March, featuring the track "Sniper", which is a compilation of tracks from the group’s history. Watch the video for "Sniper" below!
Returning to KCON to take New York by storm, VIXX released their first album Super Hero in 2012 and has since become one of the more popular groups in the K-pop scene. Known for their stage performances and dark concepts, VIXX performed at the first KCON in 2012 and most recently appeared at the Global Citizen 2015 Earth Day event held in the National Mall in Washington, DC. VIXX released Boys’ Record this February, and its remake of "Love Equation" has garnered over 1 million views on YouTube. Watch the video below!
