AKMU to hold solo concert 'AKMUTOPIA' in November
AKMU will hold its solo concert “AKMUTOPIA” in November, four years after the singer-songwriter duo's last solo concert.
The concert will be held for three days, from Nov. 24 to 26, at the Grand Peace Palace at Kyung Hee University in Dongdaemun District, eastern Seoul.
“AKMUTOPIA is a combination of AKMU and utopia, referring to the utopian world that consists only of AKMU and a world that only AKMU can create,” YG Entertainment said in a press release Thursday.
“The concert will be befitting of [the name of the concert], which will encompass AKMU’s music universe of the past and present.”
Tickets for the concert will be priced at 154,000 won ($116) for VIP seats, followed by R-seats for 132,000 won and S-seats for 110,000 won. Ticket sales will be divided into two batches, with Interpark Ticket opening sales first on Sept. 21, followed by Ticketlink on Sept. 22.
AKMU began its career by uploading self-produced tracks and cover videos online in 2012. The duo rose to fame the following year when they appeared on and took home the trophy for SBS's audition program "K-Pop Star 2."
The duo signed exclusive contracts with YG Entertainment and dropped its first full-length album "PLAY" in 2014. They are known for multiple hit tracks — mostly written and produced by the duo — such as "200%" (2014), "RE-BYE" (2016), "Last Goodbye" (2017), "Dinosaur" (2017) and more.
AKMU dropped its fourth single “Love Lee” on Aug. 21, two years after the release of its previous collaboration album “Next Episode” from 2021.
