In London, United Kingdom, CNBLUE brought the house down Saturday night (GMT) as they gave their absolute all in the home of rock.

Performing for a nearly packed audience in the IndiO2, leader Yong Hwa expressed their desire, "We wanna be a global band," spoken in the universal language, English.  After which, they played homage to one of the most respected international rock band, Oasis, singing "Supersonic".

Yong Hwa and Jung Shin were the main spokespeople for the band, speaking in English most of the time.  They were comic as well throughout the MC parts of the performance.


The band even treated the audience to an encore.  After the curtains closed in their first goodbye, they came back adorned in suits.

The fans and audience who came to the concert were generally pleased with the rock-out performance CNBLUE put forth that evening.  Seeing such warm, active, and memorable reception, one of Korea's most talented artists, genuinely appreciated being in London, saying multiple times throughout the evening, "We are really happy to be in London."



With successful international stages to-date, first in Japan, Asia, then in Los Angeles, and now in London, CNBLUE is certainly preparing to be the global band they wish to be, because to them all the world's a stage.
