Benee to hold her first concert in Korea in August
New Zealand singer-songwriter Benee will hold her first Korean concert in August, announced ticket sales website Ticketlink on Friday.
As a part of her Asian tour, “Benee Asia Tour 2023,” the singer will be performing on Aug. 1 at KBS Arena in Gangseo District, western Seoul.
"Benee will feature a concert program that includes songs which attracted lots of attention on Tiktok, as well as songs Korean audiences loved," Benee's concert promoter said in a press release.
"Seoul, I am coming to see you in August!" said Benee.
Benee debuted in 2017 with the single “Tough Guy,” and is best known for her EP “Stella & Steve” (2019) and track “Supalonely” from her first full-length album “Hey U X,” released in 2020. The song garnered popularity as a TikTok dance challenge song, landing at No. 84 on Billboard Hot 100’s yearly chart the same year.
Tickets will be sold exclusively through Ticketlink, NHN Link’s ticket sales website.
Ticket sales will pre-open on Monday from noon to 6 p.m. for fans who signed up on Baby Lemon's official website with 10 percent discounted tickets. Baby Lemon is a new platform for indie and lesser-known artists.
General ticket sales will start on Wednesday. Tickets for the floor section will cost 77,000 won ($60) and tickets for the R seat sections 88,000 won.
