Soloist IU had an inspiring run to the top. As a force to be reckoned with, she is a star singer who has built her path and continues to be wonderful through and through. Adding another feather to her impressive hat, she’s set to make history this month. Recently, IU announced their return to the concert scene after almost 3 years since their Asian “Love, Poem” tour.
Revealing their first concert dates, IU will perform at the iconic Jamsil Olympic Stadium in Seoul on August 17 and 18. With this, she is set to become the first Korean soloist to conduct an individual concert at the venue. Previously, she also became the first female K-pop solo performer at the Olympic Gymnastics Arena during the “Love, Poem” concert tour in November 2019.
Called “The Golden Hour”, the 2-day concert can attract up to 100,000 attendees each day depending on the capacity of the Jamsil Olympic Stadium. Her agency called the event an opportunity where IU can speak candidly to her fans about her music. Check out the announcement below.
The full name of the concert is “The Golden Hour: 오렌지 태양 아래” which translates to “The Golden Hour: Under the orange Sun”. Interestingly, this brings us back to a lyric from IU’s track ‘Eight’ where the same words were used. Produced and featuring BTS member SUGAfans are wondering if he will make a special appearance at the concert, just like he did for PSY recently at the ‘SUMMER SWAG 2022’ festival.
The other possible special appearance could be that of soloist Jay Park who has already talked about IU inviting him to his concert. The last invitation did not go through as conflicting schedules stood in their way. However, the two have since released a song “GANADARA” together, with Jay Park promising to join her for a performance next time.
Who do you think will join IU at “The Golden Hour”? Let us know below.
