Kim Bum Soo 2nd Korean Male Singer Ever to Perform at Carnegie Hall!

Singer Kim Bum Soo will hold his exclusive concert at Carnegie Hall in New York.

On October 20, Kim Bum Soo will begin his American tour "2012 Kim Bum Soo Get Alright Show With Orchestra" with his opening concert at Carnegie Hall in New York City.

Majority of singers do not even get the chance to perform at Carnegie Hall. Performing at Carnegie Hall has been like a dream for most performers since it opened in 1891. With its 120-year-long history, only the most influential stars like the Beatles, Rolling Stones and Mariah Carey have had the honor of performing at Carnegie Hall (excluding classical musicians).

Performing at Carnegie Hall as a singer is an incredible honor and only four singers from Korea, Cho Yong Pil (1981), Pattie Kim (1989), Insooni (1999 and 2010), and Lee Sun Hee (2011) have performed there in the past. As a male Korean singer, Kim Bum Soo is only the second to perform at Carnegie Hall.

Recently, Kim Bum Soo successfully held his "Get Alright Show With Orchestra" Concert at the Sejong Cultural Center for the Performing Arts, located in Seoul. The location is known as the home for traditional Korean performances that showcase Korea's culture. Even though most mainstream singers do not get the approval to perform there, Kim Bum Soo was able to perform at the Sejong Cultural Center without any difficulty.

Even Carnegie Hall, where only the most influential stars get the privilege to perform at, is welcoming Korean singer Kim Bum Soo to hold his opening concert there. Kim Bum Soo will perform in the Stern Auditorium, which is the biggest hall with 2,400 seats.

A representative from Kim Bum Soo's entertainment agency stated, "K-Pop is becoming famous globally through the help of numerous idol groups and with Kim Bum Soo, one of the best vocalists in Korea, performing at Carnegie Hall, K-Pop is expected to receive more awareness. Kim Bum Soo will perform prideful of his Korean background."

Meanwhile, Kim Bum Soo's American Tour "2012 Kim Bum Soo Show Get Alright Show with Orchestra" will begin in October at Carnegie Hall and perform in 4 different cities.
