This was confirmed by Manila Bulletin Entertainment Online with Happee Sy of PULP Live Productions, the concert organizer that will bring in the popular Korean boy band.
Sy said the Philippines will be part of the itinerary of Super Junior’s “Super Show 2: Asia Concert Tour Live,” to be held April 10 at the Araneta Coliseum.
“Super Show 2” is the Asia-wide concert tour of the 13-member boy band which kicked off in July 2009 in Seoul, South Korea. Before coming to Manila, Super Junior will hold concerts in China, Taiwan, and Malaysia.
Fans have been reserving tickets on social networking site Facebook where PULP Live Productions has made an event page for the concert. Sy said payment for the reserved tickets will be announced soon.
The highest ticket price is P8,000 for the Super VIP area where fans can get extra privileges and freebies.
Fans are very excited over Super Junior’s Manila visit.
“I can't wait. I'm so excited,” one fan wrote on Facebook.
Super Junior is very popular in the Philippines. Their third album, “Sorry, Sorry,” was the top selling K-pop album in 2009 in the Philippines, according to Universal Records.
The album was No. 10 in the Top 25 Bestselling Albums list for 2009 based on album sales in Music One stores from January to December 2009.
“Sorry, Sorry” debuted at No. 1 in Music One Album Chart just three days after its release in September last year and also became No. 1 in Odyssey Records stores.
The “Sorry, Sorry” album reached Gold status three months after its release in the Philippines.
