America’s Iconic Band, The Beach Boys to Perform in Seoul for the First Time at Conrad Seoul March 21, 2016
SEOUL - Conrad Seoul today announced that The Beach Boys, the American rock and roll band, will be visiting Korea for the first time to perform for 'An INTIMATE EVENING AT CONRAD SEOUL; featuring AMERICAS's ICONIC BAND, THE BEACH BOYS', on Monday, 21 March 2016. Their performance in Korea is sponsored by IFC Seoul, Otis Elevator Korea and Hewlett Packard Enterprise. Tickets will go on sale Tuesday, 19 January 2016 at 2.00 PM, local time.
The Beach Boys released 'Surfin' as their first single in 1961 and have electrified audiences around the world ever since with such hits as 'Surfin U.S.A', 'Surfer Girl' , 'California Girls' and more than 100 other songs, opening up a new genre of Surf Music. In 1966 they released their platinum 'Pet Sounds' album, featuring the hit 'Good Vibrations', anchoring their place in music history. For more than 50 years since their debut, they have been idolized as America's iconic California sound musicians.
The Beach Boys enjoyed great fame and popularity in the 1960's and 1970's to such an extent that The Beach Boys were America's iconic band to the same degree that the Beatles represented British music. The Beach Boys and Beatles each developed their own music world while at the same time, creatively influencing each other.
Unlike large-scale, stadium styled concerts, the Conrad Seoul concert venue offers a rare opportunity for an intimate experience with the audience, up close and personal with the performers. What makes this event even more special is not only the intimacy of the performance, but the opportunity to select an optional dining package that includes dinner before the concert and seating in the first 5 rows of the concert hall.
This first time Korea performance was successfully arranged by the active courting of Conrad Seoul's general manager, Nils-Arne Schroeder. "Since I was young I was a big fan of the Beach Boys and I am honored and pleased to be able to invite them to this country to hold a performance for the first time ever at Conrad Seoul. I hope that The Beach Boys' fans in Korea will be sure to attend and feel touched by their performance, recollecting 50 years of musical history", Mr. Schroeder mentioned.
The Beach Boys are led by Mike Love and Bruce Johnston, who along with Scott Totten, Jeffrey Foskett, Brian Eichenburger, Tim Bonhomme and John Cowsill continue the legacy of the iconic American band.
