CNBLUE is ready to rock London on September 22! Scheduled to appear in a solo concert for the first time in European soil, CNBLUE admits that "Yes, it's their very first time to visit UK." Still considered a 'rookie' band by certain merits, CNBLUE is a band that has disrupted the K-Pop music scene by breaking records, topping charts with each album they release. Recently, CNBLUE topped the Oricon chart for their first full length Japanese album, Code Name Blue. They also recently proved to the music industry that they can impress American and European audiences with their successful joint concert in Los Angeles with FTISLAND in March. This time, CNBLUE is now taking on the home of rock bands, London.
When asked about their expectations of their UK audience, CNBLUE stays down-to-earth, asking the fans to just enjoy the show with them, as they have always asked fans to do in all their times on stage. They candidly admit that they are not excited about just the notion of being in the UK, but they find that "Meeting with UK fans for the first time itself is the most exciting part. Hope everyone can have fun there together."
CNBLUE is also aware of the different reception they may get from their UK audience, current fans and new listeners alike. The band says "They may not sing along every song, but we'll try to communicate and interact with audience through music, the universal language." This being said, CNBLUE is still proud, however, of the unique sound found in their music that are different from the music now topping the UK charts, saying they are differentiated by "the progression of Korean style melodic lines that gives some exotic impression."
Apart from being excited to perform for a UK audience, they are also looking forward to doing some touristy things, "Tower Bridge is the one to visit. Also, we would like to visit Abbey Road to fill up our fever for the Beatles." Now, whether they will recreate the famous Abbey Road photography angle, we can only anticipate. One thing is certain though, with their determination, hard work and CNBLUE's undying commitment to make their own music, their hearts are sure to find another home in London.
CNBLUE will play at the O2 - IndigO2 Theatre on September 22 at 7 PM. Tickets can be purchased on AEG Live UK.
