Idol group Super Junior has once again proved their superior popularity in Asia.
Super Junior held their ‘The Third Asia Tour – Super Show 3 in Singapore’ in Singapore’s largest indoor concert hall, the Indoor Stadium. Despite the rain and rough weather, over 20,000 fans gathered to see Super Junior’s first solo concert in Singapore.
For three hours, Super Junior had not only performed their hit songs ‘Sorry Sorry’, ‘U’, and ‘Bonamana’, but they showed off other songs and solo stages where the different colors of each member could be seen. The audience went wild with the diverse attractions that only ‘Super Show’ could have, such as their different member introductions and quirky comments.
Like their Seoul concert, the ‘Super Show 3′ was a gigantic technical affair, as it boasted a holographic screen, laser beams, and other fancy stage attractions that caught the eyes of the locals around the concert area.
One could have expected this Singapore concert to be a huge success simply because of the hot competition for tickets. Not only did the server crash due to the sheer amount of fans stampeding to grab a ticket, but all seats for the 1st concert were sold out within ten minutes of site restoration.
Because of this, the 2nd concert tickets were sold both on and offline, resulting in fans lining up all night before the tickets were available for sale.
Super Junior had not only demonstrated their awesome ticket-power, but they also brought down the house with a successful concert that left Singapore fans hoping for a quick return.
The Super Junior members were in Singapore this past weekend for the Singapore leg of theirSuper Show 3 concert tour and it finished off successfully with 20,000 fans going home delighted.
Before the second concert in Singapore yesterday, the members had a press conference with the local media where they expressed their desire to bring the next edition, Super Show 4, to cities outside of Asia. Since the beginning of their Super Show concert tour begun back in 2008, the extravaganza has been confined to mainly east and southeastern countries in Asia.
“The prolific group has plans to bring a brand new Super Show 4 showcase to the rest of the world after the release of their fifth album this year“, so says band leader Leeteuk, 27, when asked to share the group’s plans and goals for 2011.
“We won’t restrict it [Super Show 4] to only Asia“, he smilingly adds, during an interview with Xin MSNyesterday at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.
Leeteuk and Heechul were also asked about the minor accident they got into. “As long as my fans are fine, we are fine,” Heechul coolly replied, grinning from ear to ear. Leeteuk chimed in, “In the future, for security reasons, we want fans to be careful and take care of themselves too.”
The Super Junior boys will regroup again next month for the Japan leg of their Super Show 3 concert tour from February 18 – 20th, and they will also head to the Philippines, Taiwan, and Malaysia in the coming months before ending in Vietnam on May 7th.
Members of Super Junior have arrived in Singapore for their first “Super Show 3” concert in the country. However, it looks like they ran into a bit of trouble during their stay.
On January 28th, Super Junior’s Leeteuk and Heechul were involved in a minor car accident. Both reported the incident through their Twitter pages.
Leeteuk wrote, “This is Singapore..I get the feeling that it is a beautiful place..^^ I like that you are following our car..but please be careful..a 7-car rear-end accident..I almost died..ㅠㅠ”.
Heechul tweeted, “Now, now, if you want to see us, then come to the stadiumㄱㄱ Everyone is being put in danger. I don’t want to be reminded of those past events ever again~”. In the past, several SuperJunior members were involved in a more serious car accident and some members had suffered injuries.
But have no fear ELFs, both Leeteuk and Heechul are said to be fine. Super Junior will still be officially meeting their Singaporean fans through the “Super Show 3″. Heechul tweeted later, “Beautiful Singapore!! Clean Clean!! But did I take a picture of the night view or of myself–”, and posted a picture of the “night view”.
Heechul’s “night view”:
Earlier in the month we reported that Super Junior would add Japan as one of their destinations for their upcoming Asian Tour titled SUPER SHOW 3. The boys will hold a concert early next at the Yokohama Arena on February 18th and 19th. Although this is their 3rd Asian Tour, this will be their first time performing for Japanese fans as part of their SUPER SHOW tour.
Recently, a promotional video for their stop in Japan was revealed. They mention that when Japanese ELF’s first received news of this, they crashed the servers in Japan. They state that they will put on a great and hard working performance for fans in February of 2011. Check it out below:
