Kara to perform at Tokyo Dome
By Baek Byung-yeul
Girl group Kara will become the first Korean female act to perform at Japan’s Tokyo Dome when they play there next year.
“Kara will hold a concert on Jan. 6, 2013, and this is a first for female Korean singers,” said the act’s management company DSP Media. “This proves Kara’s status as a top draw.”
The group broke the news to their fans while performing at “2012 Sigma Festival”, in Okinawa, Japan on Monday.
The Tokyo Dome is the largest concert hall in Japan and can hold 50,000. It is called the “dream stage” among Japanese singers.
Only a few male Korean stars such as Rain, TVXQ, Big Bang, Ryu Si-won, and Jang Geun-suk have performed at the venue,.
In April and May, Kara played to 150,000 on their “Karasia” tour that took place in six cities in Japan.
Kara are currently promoting new single, “Electric Boy” in Japan.
