The hottest and most anticipated Korean rookie group, iKON is set to make their debut appearance in Malaysia! Organised by IME Productions and supported by Malaysia Major Events (MME), a division of Malaysia Convention; Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB), an agency under the Ministry of Tourism and Culture, iKONCERT 2016: SHOWTIME Tour in Kuala Lumpur lands at the iconic Stadium Negara on 13 August at 7.30pm.

Hosting of this concert will emphasise the Government’s effort to strengthen Malaysia’s global appeal as a leading Asian destination for major live entertainment performances. K-pop is currently one of the hottest performance genres to hit the global stage, and with iKONCERT 2016: Showtime Tour, it is expected to meet the growing need of K-pop fans around the region. This concert is hoped to attract neighbouring fans to participate and treat themselves not only to the entertainment presented but also to the various tourism attractions that Malaysia has to offer.

Tickets priced at VIP RM588 (Numbered seat), Rock Zone RM548 (Standing zone), Cat 1 RM488 (Numbered seat), Cat 2 RM388 (Numbered seat), Cat 3 RM288 (Free seating), Cat 4 RM188 (Free seating). Ticket prices stated includes 6% GST but excludes RM4 processing fee. Fans who purchase VIP and rock zone ticket stand a chance to win sound check passes (600pax by lucky draw based on ticket barcode). Fans are thrilled to see iKON for the first time in Malaysia that more than half of the tickets were sold at the ticket launch held on May 22.

iKON is made up of 7 members, namely B.I, Jinhwan, Bobby, Yunhyeong, Ju-ne, Donghyuk and Chanwoo. The “C” in “ICON” was replaced with “K” in envisioning them to become an icon of Korea. Having just debuted in September 2015, they were already starting a fandom as TEAM B while contesting in reality TV shows WIN: Who is Next and Mix & Match. They opened for BIGBANG in Japan and were part of the line-up for YG Family Concert 2014 alongside Psy, 2NE1, Lee Hi and Epik High even before officially debuting as iKON.

iKON’s first album Welcome Back, written by themselves, was released in half version and full version with both ranked No.1 on iTunes upon release in 11 countries. A concert held in Korea in support of the album was sold out within minutes.

Despite being a new group, iKON has been recognised as Best New Artiste at Seoul Music Awards, Golden Disk Awards and Mnet Asian Music Awards. The group was even acknowledged in China by receiving the NetEase Attitude Awards for Best Group and QQ Music Awards for Best New Group and Media Recommendation award, proving their popularity outside of Korea.

After hosting a series world-class events, Malaysia continues to be part of the Korean wave and one of the leading destinations in the world to host international events. Being the 2nd most visited country in Asia Pacific and the most Muslim friendly destination, Malaysia offers a diversity of exciting wonders at an affordable rate with state-of-the-art facilities for visitors to get in and around the nation.
